Outlander: Ultimate Autumn TV

Hailed ‘the feminist Game of Thrones’ I’ve had my eye on fantasy period drama Outlander since it came out in 2014. Based on the bestselling historic novels by author Diana Gabaldon it’s been nominated for several Emmy’s and a Golden Globe but since it was only available on Amazon Video and I didn’t have a subscription I never really got […] Read more…

Things To Do This Bank Holiday

There’s nothing that states ‘required viewing’ for me than when a new TV series is accompanied by swoon-worthy interiors and new Netflix show ‘Anne with an E’ (a re-boot of the iconic Anne of Green Gables) is a living breathing evocation of everyones favourite modern crafted brands – it’s basically Restoration Hardware meets Farrow and Ball by way […] Read more…

A Weekend in the Hamptons!

Exactly one month ago, my little family and I set sail for our first big summer holiday to New York and the Hamptons! Visiting the Hamptons has always been a dream of mine [even before the Kardashian’s graced it with their presence]. Historically the summer playgrounds for many American presidents and first ladies – Jackie […] Read more…

Must Watch: Vikings

I have just finished watching a marathon of Love Film’s first exclusive acquisition, the gripping Vikings, a historical action drama from the US History Channel. All nine episodes were released at once – in keeping with other streaming services like Netflix who are tapping into the advantages of simultaneous release to keep viewers engaged. I for one know I […] Read more…

Movie House Roundup

I don’t have a section for this on the blog but over the years I’ve found a lot of my interior inspiration has come from films. Now more than ever beautiful interiors and film sets are taking centre stage in cinema. Trawling through my archives I thought I would share some interiors that have featured […] Read more…
