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…

New Show! BBC 2 Versailles

Versailles anyone? Based on life in the French Court during Louis XIV’s reign and his strategy for strengthening his hold on the country by the moving of political stronghold from Paris to the then tiny village of Versailles. The show’s luscious production reportedly cost 20 million, was partly shot in shot in the staterooms, bedrooms and gardens […] 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 for one know I […] Read more…

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…

Liberal Arts

I can’t stop thinking about Liberal Arts [2012], a film by actor and director Josh Radnor that I watched last Thursday night. It’s a really simple but perfectly pitched comedy-drama. Jesse Fischer [Radnor] is a 35-year-old college admissions officer from New York City who loves literature and language. His deep nostalgia for his own student life […] Read more…

Sea Chant

Yes it’s as cold in London as it could physically be. It’s snowing, and that’s pretty cold. Yet I chose this week to torture myself by watching this painfully beautiful video i stumbled upon by storytelling outfit in pictures, sound, and video. This is a video they made for the popular lifestyle magazine Kinfolk, called ‘Ode […] Read more…

Dream House: This Is 40

There is nothing quite like a big sprawling family home in a Hollywood blockbuster to add to a film’s feel good factor. The house is as important to the longevity of a film as the storyline – cases in point; Father of The Bride [classic American charm], Practical Magic [New England witchy-ness], It’s Complicated [Meryl’s […] Read more…
