So here we are then. It’s certainly not the new normal yet is it, but it’s the new reality at least. I hope you are all staying well and indoors. Can I firstly say thank you all so much for your messages of support for my post last week. I will absolutely continue to write…

Monday Inspiration: Colour Soaked Spaces

16th March 2020

Now before we start: a word on the virus. I feel that you come here for escapism, for home decorating advice and chat, and to see things you might want for your own homes and to be inspired. I also feel that for some of you right now that will feel inappropriate and wrong. I’m…

Gooooooooood Mooooooooorning Monday. I hope that the wind has died down, the floods have receded and the viruses are at bay in your corner of the world this morning. And in an attempt to distract ourselves from all those horrors who fancies a little stroll through some beautiful rooms with a cup of coffee before…

Morning to you all and I hope you are all ok after the battering from Storm Dennis over the weekend. We discovered a leak in the top bathroom which is coming down into our bedroom below but I’m not sure I can blame Dennis for it in all honesty. Fence panels and roof tiles are…

Kate Watson-Smyth takes a look at beautiful rooms with inspirational colour schemes. Here a Stockholm apartment is painted in a forest green on the walls and ceiling with crisp white double doors and paintwork. #doubledoors #madaboutthehouse

A visual tour of images that have caught my eye this week that might ease your start into Monday. First up this gorgeous green room in an apartment in Stockholm. Now there are many things about this scene that you think might not translate to your own home but it’s as much about the red…

Keeping it calm and C-free for as long as possible. Come on in to The Mad House, which is, among a sea of Christmas insanity, the least mad space around at the moment. The earlier it starts on social media the more I resist and find peace and pleasure in these beautiful rooms below. Head…

ochre pouf and old painting by @n0.17house

Starting today with a bright burst of yellow as the clocks went back yesterday in the UK and although I’m typing this on a beautifully sunny Autumn morning (albeit with no idea what time it actually is) it might all have gone to winter by the time you are reading this in 24 hours time.…

Monday Inspiration: Beautiful Rooms

21st October 2019
A look of some favourite beautiful rooms with Kate Watson-Smyth. This bedroom has a black painted ceiling but, in a clever touch, so is the coving all the way round. This has the effect of softening the hard line you get when the wall hits the ceiling at right angles and also bends the ceiling slightly down over the walls making it look higher. The black vanity unit is softened with some cane detailing and gold accents. #bedroom #blackceiling #madaboutthehouse

After the last few weeks of finding a theme to this regular Beautiful Rooms post I decided to just pick some great spaces this week. There is a loose connection, if you want to look for such a thing, in that all of them have one or two great stand out features that make them…

Kate Watson-Smyth explains how simply painting a wooden stool like this soft pink can instantly add interest to a kitchen. #kitchenstool #madaboutthehouse

Morning to you and Happy Monday (or whatever time or day of the week you are reading this). I thought we’d start with this very jolly kitchen from Plain English which has been painted in the new colours created for them by Rita Konig. So that’s cupboards in Nicotine (yes strange name but lovely colour)…

Monday Inspiration: Mad About The Bathroom

16th September 2019
Kate Watson-Smyth takes a look at bathroom design and how to take inspiration and adapt it for your space. A classic background of mostly white but the freestanding bath has been painted in a deep plum colour. And you could change this if you got bored. The black chandelier is the real focal point in this bathroom. #bathroomdesign #freestandingbath #madaboutthehouse

It’s a shorter post this week (will anyone notice or mind?) as this weekend has been spent taking the 18yo to his new home at university. I was completely fine about him going until two days before when he texted me and asked me out to lunch. And I had to work. And it really…
