For the greater good.

I’m on a mission to reduce our ‘stuff’ again, and that means saying goodbye to pieces I love, but rarely use.  The initial decisions can be hard, but I find more often than not I don’t miss those things once they’re gone.  Naturally the holidays has led to the house being quite chaotic, the expected…

Nominated for the Amara Interior Blog Awards.

Hey there lovelies, so, you may have already seen the news over on my Facebook page, but there’s no harm is spreading it a little further…. Alice in Scandiland has been nominated for the Best Design Inspiration Blog in the Amara Interior Blog Awards and I need your help… Please could you take a second to vote for me, it’s…

Surviving Summer with Soren’s House.

We’re well into the flow of the Summer holidays, but this week I’ve been plagued by terrible, headsplitting toothache and as a result have been in a bit of a grump. So when a big box of goodies arrived from the lovely Soren’s House it was just the boost we all needed. Naturally the box itself had…

Garden makeover, Phase One.

I’ve shared various snippets of our garden transformations over the last several months, but until now haven’t managed to get it all down in one place. I’ve been waiting to take ‘the right shot’, for the weather to be just right, but in doing so time has gone by and some of the beautiful plants…

A little something just for me.

The school holidays are upon us and I am trying to find my feet, find the balance with two small and feisty people at home 24/7. I’m not ashamed to say I like and very much need time to myself, this is something I am realising more and more in recent months. I need time…

Beautiful blue.

I thought I’d share some of my snaps from today, because it was kinda a bit beautiful. After delivering my turquoise chair to it’s new owner we had planned to head to Treyarnon which was close by, but road works scuppered that plan, so we headed to Crantock instead, tough life isn’t it! I’m pretending…

Favourite Things Weekly (or not so weekly!)

I haven’t done a Favourite Things Weekly in a while, maybe I should drop the ‘Weekly’ then I need not make any apology! Here are a few things I’m crushing on… Wooden Candlesticks, no explanation needed really, they’re just lovely. Candles add instant atmosphere to a room and these look so tactile and beautiful. I’ve…

Visit Cornwall. A guide, according to my Instagram.

Recently one of my followers asked me for some suggestions of nice places in Cornwall to visit whilst on their holiday, this is something I get asked quite often, so I thought I’d write about it here. My mind started to whirl with all the wonderful places in my home county and I wondered how…

Mollie Makes Feature.

It’s been a bit of a crappy week this one, but I don’t want to go into that. Instead here’s a little bit of yay me-ness! I just made that a word, ok! Those that follow me on Facebook and Instagram may have seen me mention that the rather fabulous Mollie Makes asked me to feature in their magazine, actually I…

Repurpose, upcycle, relove.

Something I really struggle with is seeing things go to waste when they could have a second lease of life. When it comes to furniture I’m pretty sure there is enough of everything already in existence to go around, you just have to think a bit creatively. Just because one person doesn’t want something, that…

Maisons Du Monde Junior edit.

It’s rather lovely when a brand you already love and shop with gets in contact, even more so if they want to collaborate, so when Maisons Du Monde asked me to create an edit for their new Junior collection I was very happy indeed. I have chosen pieces that I love and would want in my own…

A little thank you…

I just wanted to say a little thank you, or even a really big one, to all the lovely people who commented and gave me kind words of support after my A little bit of truth post last week. It was never my intention to seek out compliments, simply to get some things out of my head…
