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…

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…

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…

Party.

Instagram Giveaway

Hey there lovelies, a quick heads up, over on my Instagram I’ve just posted about my beautiful collaborative Giveaway with the wonderful Hilda Carr. You may have already seen some of her work in my home, she made my two favourite mugs (a third beauty is in the making and on it’s way to me soon as I…

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…
