Master Bedroom Makeover.

Our house was shot for a feature in House Beautiful Magazine last month and this was the catalyst needed to push on and get multiple projects finally done, in time for the photographer’s arrival. Our bedroom had a mini makeover 2 years ago, on a budget of about £5 and that was fine, for then….

A world away, just for us.

Last weekend we escaped real life and made a beeline to the Penventon Park Hotel, in Redruth. I’d been invited along for a night’s Press Stay, to take a look at the hotel and experience it for ourselves. The timing couldn’t have been better, with life so hectic at the moment (when is it ever…

The importance of scent in interiors.

There are many ways to approach designing a space, but for me it’s about a feeling. Whether it’s a piece of furniture that excites me, setting me onto a path of inspiration, a colour or certain accessory, scent is as vital as all these other elements. A room should be an experience that goes far…

Eula’s Room Revamp.

Today I’m breaking my blogger’s block and putting something new here. It has been the longest I’ve ever gone without writing in this space and as the days have ticked by the weight of my absence has got heavier, completely crushing my ability to string the right words together. The longer you go without doing…

Ending the weekend on a Cocktail high.

Great weekends are made up of furniture buying exploration in our beautiful home county, discovering new beaches, eating good food and rounding it all off with cocktails in the garden. 》A disclaimer here, there was also much arguing too, the girls have been in quite a funk the last few days and my patience wore…

Time for me and him.

Last week Stu and I managed to escape for a much needed child free break. Let me just repeat that last bit, CHILD FREE!! To add further emphasis to this detail, you should know the two of us haven’t been away, just us, since before Nancy, our eldest, showed up nearly 7 years ago. Big…

Easter Party.

We’re off up to Wales tomorrow morning, to visit family and join in with my cousin’s birthday celebrations. This means we’re away on Easter Sunday and Nancy was a little concerned that the Easter Bunny wouldn’t know our temporary address, she’s even written to him, explaining the situation! I’ve reasured her that that’s one clever…

Everything But The Dog Feature.

EBTD, a London based MidCentury and Scandinavian furniture specialist, has featured me over on their blog today. Click below to have a read… Whilst you’re over there, take a look around, they have some absolutely beautiful examples of classic, timeless vintage furniture. This Ib Kofod-Larsen sofa could turn my heart away from my beloved Ercol…

Industrial dining with The Hairpin Leg Co.

Our Ply and hairpin legged kitchen table gets a lot of love and compliments, it’s such a simple and easy design to make yourself and I’ve been promising a blog post about it for quite some time, it’s coming, honest, but this isn’t that post. Instead I have something else to share with you… I’ve…

A window solution.

It’s no secret that we don’t have any window dressings in our downstairs, I find many options overly fussy and as someone who is very anti-housework I see curtains and blinds as an extra place for dust to settle. We’re fortunate that the back of the house isn’t particularly overlooked and we live in a…

Tiptoe Craft Desk Update.

The craft corner is perhaps the most used area of the house, certainly by the girls that is. If we had to get rid of every single toy, as long as the supply cupboard was well stocked, I’m not sure Nancy and Eula would be all that concerned, it’s a very industrious corner, a constant…

Cosy Christmas by candlelight.

Hey, guess what, I’m going to talk about candles again! Some may say I’m a stuck record, but with the days so dull at the moment, we just have wetness and gale force winds here in Cornwall, none of the white wonderland magic I’ve seen further up country, life definitely requires some brightening up. I…
