Last week a friend emailed to ask for advice about her knock-through sitting room. An idea which had seemed good at the time (two small children, too many small dark rooms) was proving irritating in the new lockdown life of 2020 with two adults and two larger children all at home all at the same…

No I don’t think I’m done with the florals and greens yet. Must be the onset of winter. And the clocks going back. Or the continuation of living indoors. Probably all of it. It’s hardly surprising that green, the colour both of nature and creativity, is drawing us all in this year and I have…

Black kitchen cabinets, large windows with natural linen curtains and wooden dining table and chairs by Neptune.

A round up of pictures that have caught my eye over the last week. And one of the things that struck me, after I had decided on the final five, was that three of them are product shots and so I got to thinking… you know the rest but actually if you like SATC you…

Focusing on kitchens and bathrooms this week as these are the hardest to get right, the most expensive and yet the most important rooms in the house. The key to both of these rooms is not to treat them in isolation. They are part of your home and, as such, must reflect and link with…

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…

blue mountain school in london's east end

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…
