Scarlett Mack

A stunning Xmas feature that we shot in Glasgow for Your Home Magazine. Scarlett and and her husband Gerry bought their cottage for its location, at the end of a leafy lane in an idyllic spot in the West End. They bought it in 2017, knowing they would extend, as the garden is huge, and […]

Thrilled with our Christmas feature in the latest 25 Beautiful Homes about the gorgeous home of interior designer Fenella Cockcroft.

Nerja

We were invited to visit Nerja, as guests of James Villas. Once a small fishing village, Nerja has blossomed into one of Spain’s most popular coastal destinations in Andalucía. Steeped in natural beauty, facing the sea with the Sierra de Almijara mountains rising sharply behind. The old town is typically Andalucian, full of white-washed houses, and pebble streets. Perfect for exploring away […]

A Year of Living Danishly

Alexis Miller Home Tour

Alexis and her husband Stephen bought their home brand new, from the developer, so it was a complete blank canvas.

Her challenge was to add character into the property and differentiate […]

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 […]
