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…

A mix of beautiful rooms for you this week with no particular theme.

A look at some inspiring room schemes with Kate Watson-Smyth. This home office features a terracotta filing cabinet is a darker shade than the walls and the green cupboard provides a glorious jolt of contrast. #homeoffice #terracottascheme #madaboutthehouse

Come on in. Let’s go for a calm and quiet stroll through a collection of beautiful rooms and take a moment to look at what appeals (or doesn’t in each room). We have the time to plan so we might as well really look at what works for us in each of these and see…

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…
