Our Quirky Airbnb in Budapest

If you follow me on any form of social media, you’ve probably heard me wangin’ on about Budapest as of late. #SorryNotSorry You see, in the almost 11 years that Joe and I have been an item, we’ve not had all that many holidays – two in fact, with one being our honeymoon. What with renovating, wedding planning and Luna’s arrival, it’s just never quite

7 Statement Marbles for Maximalists

I remember about 3 or 4 years ago, just as we were shopping for worktops as part of our kitchen renovation, I read in the newspaper (yup, an actual physical paper) that marble was making a comeback. It feels a bit weird saying that because it’s so widespread on the high street now – and if I’m being totally honest I’m not sure it’s “come

Wallpaper Wonderlust with Graham & Brown

how is wallpaper made?

Earlier this Autumn, I was invited to take a VIP tour of the Graham & Brown offices as International Wallpaper Week approached – a little behind the scenes excursion learning all about how wallpaper is designed and printed. As a self-proclaimed interiors geek, I couldn’t very well say no, could I? Probably why I ended up taking about 300 pictures. Oops…Fancy taking a sneak peak?

Dulux’s ‘Denim Drift’

Dulux Denim Drift Trend

I’m not really one for trends generally. I’m certainly of the view that you should decorate to your own taste and who cares what anyone else says? Saying that, sometimes it’s hard to know just how much you love something until you see it splattered all over a wall, styled, and experimented with in its full glory – and that’s something that seasonal trends gives

Hibernating For The Winter With A Better Night’s Sleep

How to get better sleep

Let’s cut right to the chase – I don’t iron my bedding. I’m sorry if that offends you, but life is too short and my daughter uses our duvet as a tent, hence why our good teddy bear friend is on our little journey for the day… I have a real love/hate relationship with sleep. Not just because I’m a mum, although that certainly is

The Cactus Christmas Tree

I am going to start off with an apology* Yes I know it’s still September. Yes I know some of you won’t yet have had your summer holiday/birthday/annual bbq yet (delete as appropriate). BUT, mid-September officially marks the countdown to Christmas in my household. Some of you might have noticed that I’ve struggled to hold back on Instagram Stories when I’ve spotted the glistening of tinsel lining

Add to Basket – September 2016 with Vertbaudet

It’s been a washout Summer for the most part, but my little girl loves to splash in puddles so it’s not been all bad. We bought her a new pair of wellies from Vertbaudet because these kids always seem to need new shoes… They’re super cute and change colour when they get wet which Luna LOVES (in fact, can I get away with them too

My favourite Instagram hashtags for interiors geeks

Interiors Hashtags for Instagram

It’s become a bit of a running joke that I’m an Instagram addict. Actually, if I posted on there as much as I take pictures throughout the day, my feed would be tenfold. Get me to hashtag rehab you guys. But you know, we all have our vices. So today I’m sharing some of my favourite interiors-related hashtags that you should be looking at, following a

Going for Gold – Inside Team GB’s Rio Home with DFS

Team GB Rio House Interiors

This is a paid advertorial for DFS I don’t know if I’ve ever told my blog readers this before… but I was kind of an athlete when I was younger. And when I say kind of, I’m actually being quite modest. I excelled at most sports and some of my oldest school friends to this day still sometimes refer to me as “the fastest girl
