A Year of Living Danishly

Well, I am mad about Scandi interiors; I took my husband to Copenhagen as a surprise treat for his 50th, you can read all about it here; I have read all about Hygge and my son, who is 25 years old today, is living in Glasgow with his beautiful Danish girlfriend. I need to find […]

Alexis Miller Home Tour

Alexis and her husband Stephen bought their home brand new, from the developer, so it was a complete blank canvas. She initially planned a very low key, Scandi minimal interior, but found herself injecting more and more colour and drama as time went by. Her challenge was to add character into the property and differentiate […]

A History Lesson

Delighted to see our feature in the latest issue of 25 Beautiful Homes, September 2022, gracing the front cover. Owner, Jo Tutton Lifestyle and interiors, on Instagram, has become a dear friend and colleague. We have photographed a number of her properties over the years.

10 Garden Tips

Well, I am trying not to sigh and say OMG too much, I am basically loving this weather and very pleased to have an outdoor space to enjoy it. I was brought up in a flat with a communal garden in London which was fun and I have lived in a couple of flats since, […]

Summer reading 2022

For me there is no point in having a beautiful home unless I can read in it. I cannot relax unless I have a good book on the go – it is almost like a drug for me. I do get quite stressed sometimes and the older I get the more I realise how helpfully […]

Rosie Connor

Delighted to show off this gorgeous home that we shot for the current issue of Your Home magazine. I had been corresponding with Rosie for a while, knowing that I would love to write about her. There is no hurry though, a house does have to be ‘ready’ for a shoot and Rosie is a […]

Mandarina Shoes

I wonder how many of these beautiful shoes were worn for the many Jubilee parties over the weekend? Mandarina are definitely the shoes of choice for fabulous weddings and parties, all over the world, and these comfy cotton twill flats in patriotic red, white and blue were made in honour of HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee […]

Madeira In Fife

My trip to the East Neuk… What a treat this was, a wee adventure in one of my favourite parts of the world. Whenever I arrive, I think ‘should I live here?’ The East Neuk is basically a string of gorgeous fishing villages along a stunning coastline, backing onto pretty countryside, where one of my […]

Beekeepers Cottage

So delighted with our latest feature for Grand Designs magazine – yay we made the cover! The owner, Kate Atchley, is a beekeeper and has built herself a contemporary home in the Scottish Borders. The house references the timber construction of a traditional beehive in a garden. There is a kink in the design to […]

Catherine’s Vineyard Cottages

I have got to know a lady in Hungary who, like me is half Hungarian, but unlike me, is the great, great, great grand daughter of Charles Dickens, on her British side. She is a global ambassador for the Dickens family, and has also set up a home and business in Hungary called Catherine’s Vineyard […]

Happy Easter

Spring has definitely sprung, I was delighted to spend much of Easter Sunday working on my laptop, in my garden. I know that might sound a bit dull to some people, but I am a terrible nerd about my work and it was absolute bliss! I have just written a feature about injecting seasonal colour […]

Tim Stevenson

Absolutely thrilled with our latest feature in House Beautiful magazine. I discovered artist Tim Stevenson when I saw a write up about him in the Sun newspaper: he had used acrylic teal kitchen cupboard door fronts from Ikea, as flooring, in his beautiful, brand new, purpose built studio. They were on sale in bargain corner […]
