Soulful Interior Design: No 8 Project

Lately I’ve become besotted with the elegant and soulful Facebook and Instagram feed of Swansea based interior design service the No 8 Project which has been like stepping into the cosiest of Toast catalogues. Thrillingly it is in-fact the creation of Toast’s ex-senior designer Tamsin Leech-Griffiths (she has also designed for Loxley England and Paul Smith). Tamsin has […] Read more…

Halloween at Sainsbury’s

I never miss a chance to attend a Sainsbury’s Home preview. Every season their collections are just spot on – on trend but classic, covetable and excitingly affordable. This season you can find elegant linocut floral accessories and embroidered cushions amongst other beauties – take a look at their homeware here. Best of all Sainsbury’s do Halloween really well. Lets […] Read more…

Party Decor: Pea Green Boat

I have to admit I unashamedly stole this post’s inspiration from my friends at The Women’s Room Blog because I just love a party decor web-shop. The Americans do party decor really well, with design doyennes like Martha Stewart and Grace Bonney making crafting and entertaining a national institution. Across the pond, the online landscape […] Read more…

The Verandah at Dishoom

I think that regular readers of the blog will know I have a penchant for East London restaurant Dishoom – its exotic charm in the middle of bustling Shoreditch scoops me up and away to my beloved Bombay.

To spare those who have heard all the details many times over already I will briefly say that at the beginning of November 2012 […] Read more…

Exhibition: Tim Walker: Story Teller

Returning from the newly opened Tim Walker: Story Teller exhibition at Somerset House today, I stirred up a whole load of controversy at work by innocently announcing that I enjoyed certain aspects of the exhibition but overall I thought Tim Walker was overrated… My reasons – because although I am the first person to jump […] Read more…

Toast Summer 2012: House and Home

Hello Toast Spring/Summer collection! With glorious weather like this it’s easy to believe it could last forever. While it does – i think it’s appropriate to dip into Toast’s Home catalogue which as usual has the ability to transport the reader away into exotic climes with white-washed walls, floaty linens and airy rooms. I need […] Read more…

The Gentle world of Herriot Grace

I’m obsessed with the multifaceted blog of Nikole Herriot and the Herriot Grace shop which artfully documents her activities cleverly interspersed with products available to buy made and designed in her father’s workshop in Canada. Her photographs and styling are just so simple and emotive it makes me want to have a gentle home like […] Read more…

Sugary Sweet 60’s Style, The Help

I saw The Help this past weekend… a perfect Sunday film watched from under my blanket on the sofa… I loved the sugary sweet set and styling… at such odds to the subject matter, but for that very reason so moving. The film was was just as beautiful and gripping as the book – we […] Read more…
