PUTTING UP A SHELF FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER (YES REALLY)

Confession. I know I'm an interiors blogger but I've never actually put up a shelf. I've watched many times over as my hubby Jason does various bits of drilling into walls and levelling up shelves only to watch said shelves drop out of the wall because the plaster wasn't strong enough to hold it. I once recall being well excited that we had managed to put up our new circular shower curtain rail so that I could finally shower without spraying the entire bathroom with water only to have it slowly collapse on me, mid shower, mid shampoo. Almost more frustrating than when the boiler light decides to go out mid shower. Almost. Anyway...

STYLING FOR LEE LONGLANDS INSTAGRAM FEED

Yea I'm an interior stylist but I'm really delving more and more into the world of photography and overall creative direction too, so I love when I get asked by brands to use their own products and create whatever I fancy. Who wouldn't?! I recently worked with furniture and homewares company Lee Longlands to style and shoot some images for their instagram feed, something which is becoming more and more popular as social media rises up and influences our shopping habits! Here's a little look at the pics I created.

HOW TO STYLE YOUR SIDE TABLE THREE DIFFERENT WAYS

In my flat I'm always switching around little objects to create new vignettes when I get bored of a look. Luckily I have so many random pieces and accessories that it's quite easy to create a whole new theme if I'd like. I just need to run around the flat and see what randomness I can find! I was lucky enough to have a sexy new brass and glass Huxley side table from Within to style for my living room so I've tried out three very different styles. Some of my fave bloggers like Swoonworthy have been doing these types of posts recently and I thought you may like it too. I show you how you can do the same, and my tips on how to style your side table in a few ways!

A couple of weeks back I was invited down to the Ralph Lauren home press launch for their new collection, Corral Canyon. Aside from swooning over the sheer luxury of the fabrics and quality of craftsmanship, the walk around their Fulham Road store was a real lesson in how to do luxury styling.

Let's take a closer look at the new collections and that gorgeous styling.

Oh and read to the end for your chance to win a Ralph Lauren Home gift worth £75!
