Never never never would I have thought to paint the ceiling of a pale pink room in pale blue, but the the other day I was lying on our bed in our pale pink bedroom looking out of the window of the blue sky and thinking how pretty it was and then this turned up…

I don’t know about you but I’m exhausted. It’s not just working in difficult circumstances over the last four months – and I say that in the knowledge that I have only had to work at home not school at home as the teenagers have been largely left to their own devices. I assume it’s…

And so we reach July and I have been taken by a meme which keeps popping up on Instagram which reads thus: “Dear July, I don’t want any trouble from you, just come in, sit down, don’t touch anything and keep your mouth shut”. And I really can’t think of anything more apt at the…

Diving into a little subtle pattern this week as I think there is a fashion for full on maximalism at the moment but it’s not right for everyone so I thought we could have a look at it being used in different ways. I love pattern but, as regular readers no, am scared off too…

Monday morning and let’s start with the bedroom because since this lockdown started eleventy billion years ago I no longer have to get up at 6.30am to wake the 16yo for school and frankly I’m now not sure I will ever be able to get up before 8 o’clock again. OK sometimes 9… anyway moving…

Emerald green Chinoiserie wallpaper by de Gournay with floral sofa, textured rug and glass coffee table.

Starting with a glorious riot of wallpaper this week. De Gournay handpainted papers are so pretty and this bright green can’t fail to lift the spirits. This was chosen by Matthew Williamson for his flagship London store (although I confess I don’t know if it’s still there as that was several years ago).  I could…

Some really clever ideas in this week’s mix of beautiful spaces, several of which include a touch of vintage – which, as you know, I think is always a good idea. In fact, it’s never a bad idea. Some restful colours, clever ideas and all created by people who I think are worth following for…

Black and white chequer board kitchen floor and bed head as bench back by medina @grillodesigns

A mix of beautiful rooms for you this week with no particular theme. Last week we needed calming spaces and then shortly after that the world basically exploded and everyone is shouting at everyone else. With just and understandable cause it seems. So here are five rooms. All by clever people, all of whom are…

I don’t know about you but I don’t seem to be half as productive as social media would have us believe everyone else is. I can barely summon up the energy to put the clean laundry away, much less sort out and declutter my wardrobe, or clear up the piles of stuff that have migrated…
