Kitchens, kitchens how is it possible to live with just one? A few weeks ago I visited the new DeVol Kitchens showroom in Clerkenwell (and did a little tour on Insta-stories) because I was just fed up with stalking their Instagram Feed for a daily dose of their Shaker style kitchens.

Over the past few years we have been spoiled by national supermarkets launching their own homeware collections which have made food shopping for people like me a feverish pleasure.

5 Spring Update Essentials

What is it about Spring and its charged tendrils which permeate sneakily under thresholds and curl through the cracks in windows to make us feel restless and impatient for the new.

Sculleries, Pantries and Draughty Passages

I read a lot of historical fiction, especially atmospheric books set in 18th and 19th century England. Tales of lonely Gothic Manors in the English countryside and their curious inhabitants, or imposing London townhouses with their cast of secretive bustling characters.
