A CUP OF TEA WITH: JUSTIN VAN BREDA, FURNITURE DESIGNER

You may remember a few months back I visited the showroom of C.P Hart, one of my favourite retailers of luxury bathroom accessories and furniture.

A TOUR OF LONDON'S BEST KEPT SECRETS WITH THE HP SPECTRE AND LOOK UP LONDON

I definitely found a few bits that I'll be picking up. So let's get into it! Here's what the HOF design team have in store for you after summer...

THE HUNT FOR THE PERFECT VINTAGE ARMCHAIR

Remember a few months back I won the home blogger awards and said I'd use the money for something special? Well here it is! We've been on the hunt for the perfect vintage armchair for our living room for months now. You wouldn't believe the back and forth my husband and I had over choosing the chair! Would we have one, or two? Could we find one that looked great but suited our budget? Was it comfortable? We had some very specific requirements.
