A Home of One’s Own

Finally, after a long six months of anticipation, disappointments, excitement and stress we have the keys to our very own home!!! I’m sure anyone who remembers buying their first home will remember the sense of achievement and relief felt when they step through that door for the first time. It has been a long time […] Read more…

NYC in Colour

Everyone says that London has some of the most beautiful old architecture in the world but as i’ve been walking the streets of New York this week I have noticed the most stunning colour combinations gracing the city’s warehouse style buildings. Rarely in London do I see buildings with complimentary aesthetics sitting side by side […] Read more…

I love the […] Read more…

Mid-Century Home

It could be in LA, Osaka or a Scandinavian suburb. Designed in the late sixties and built in 1970, this house on a large leafy estate nestling in Dulwich woods in South East London is filled with natural light. I love the luscious dark colours used, greens and navy’s which contrast so beautifully with all […] Read more…

Austen House

This sweet house is aptly named ‘Austen House’. Austere and simple each room feels like it should be addressed by its correct name like ‘the parlour’ and ‘pantry’. The beauty is in the period features so lovingly and neutrally painted. So, so pretty. All images courtesy of 1st Option Read more…

In the Mix

Here, everyday objects are covered in soft fabrics and creativity. In the living room, the couch was covered with a patchwork of fabrics and the […] Read more…

Upper East Side meets West London

I found this gorgeous London Townhouse in the US Elle Decor – I have a feeling that if  London and the Upper East Side ever collided this might be the result don’t you think? It may come as no surprise then that the home owner once worked as a buyer in Saks Fifth Avenue. I […] Read more…
