Suzi’s Hall

Love, love, love helping peope style their homes. My eagerness to help led me to create the Interior Design Toolkit. I realised that people get a bit lost with their interiors because they don’t quite know what style they are. The toolkit helps you identify your style and make more confident decorating decisions. I now […]

Table Top Firebowls

A very important warning. Many people have bought these attractive home and garden heat sources. Friends of ours were sat around the table on a Friday night just a few weeks ago and were refilling the firebowl with a bottle of bioethanol fluid. They thought it had cooled sufficiently but it had not, there may […]

The sofa

The focal point for the home. Probably the most prominent piece of furniture you will buy, the most important being your bed in terms of the amount of time you spend in it and the affect it can have on your health. Your sofa does not need to be expensive, there are bargains galore on […]

Innerji

I have always been a bit of a mug for herbs and well being. If someone tells me that almonds, or honey, or sage is good for you – I believe them. Turmeric – don’t get me started on its many wonders. I like a bit of routine as well, in fact if I do […]

Storage

Storage – a minefield!

As you know we are thinking about moving and having a change – nothing to report as yet, but it will almost certainly be a downsize. Exciting, but the one thing that is worrying me though is where will we put all our stuff?? Yes, I know we can chuck a lot out, but what […]

Mid Century Modern

Loved visiting this exhibition at the Dovecot Studios. Open again after four months of lockdown, the gallery has returned with a real sense of safety and airiness in place. You are advised to book online as they are restricting numbers, but should you turn up as a passer by, you are likely to be given […]
