Spring is in the air! We couldn't let this past Sunday go by without soaking in some soft sunshine. My husband, daughter and I along with my brother headed over to Dulwich Park to chillax! Dulwich is so beautiful and really doesn't feel like you're in London... It would be so lovely to own a property there and be able to call the area home. One day people, one day! Here are our pics from the day...Read More

Hey everyone, take a look inside my bog :) When we moved in the toilet room wasn't high on our list of concerns. The original plan was to knock the wall between the WC and bathroom down and create one larger bathroom. However, after being quoted a high amount to do that, we decided to instead create an awesome feature toilet room. Here's what we did.Read More

And guess what? I need you to vote...Read More
I've been looking online for some interesting classes or e-learning around antiques for ages. I know there is nothing quite the same as the real touch and feel of getting out there and learning yourself, but when work, family and entrepreneurial activities consume all of your time it's practically impossible. But there was just nothing good. Then, as if by magic, I met someone at work, an SEO guru, who happened to show me one of the clients websites he was working on. www.antiquesmasterclass.com.Read More
We moved into our flat just over a year ago. It was a real fixer-upper, with no proper flooring, magnolia splashed walls and an extremely old bathroom and kitchen. As soon as we got the keys we set about starting work, which was mostly decorating after the Kitchen and bathroom had been done. We wore really cool overalls like in the picture above and pretended we were out of Breaking Bad. Unfortunately, because we hadn't really had loads of experience decorating (apart from the odd bedroom as a kid, and I'm sure I wasn't that helpful!) we ended up doing things in the wrong order and sometimes 2 or 3 times before it was right. Here's my list of what we did wrong and how to do it right, so that you won't make the same mistakes that we did!Read More
A few weeks ago I did a colour palette based on the Mallard duck. Notice a theme happening here?! Today's colour palette is based on the Speckled Tanager, an exotic bird with almost acid like feathers.
Here's my thoughts behind this colour palette and how you can make it work in your space.Read More
Yesterday was of course mother's day, so we took a little stroll along the Southbank, grabbed some lunch (at Wagamama, again, I swear this blog should be sponsored by Wags), and then played on the grass by the London Eye.Read More
