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 […]

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 […]

Modern Garden Offices

I am thrilled to share our advertisers, Modern Garden Rooms, new arm to their business, Modern Garden Offices A brilliant concept, enabling purchasers to simply design an office for themselves for their garden […]

Mauve & Mocha

Another recent feature was about the home of Joanna Kerr, owner of brand new online homeware store Mauve & Mocha. Inspired by their journey renovating a beautiful but dated bungalow on the outskirts of Edinburgh, Joanna and her husband, Paul, have both set up new businesses of their own. Prior to having children Joanna worked […]

Rukmini Patel

I wanted to share a little bit more about our recent feature in the March issue of Your Home magazine about interior designer, Rukmini Patel and her recent living room makeover. The magazine needed a spring living room and I knew that Rukmini’s soft colour palette in the sitting area, open plan to her kitchen, […]

The Hare In Winter

Wow – the campaign to Save Our Pub is honestly nearly there – do check here to see how much we have raised! Once we have raised enough to buy the building, approximately £200,000, we will just go ahead, as we are confident, that there is enough support in our community to raise the money […]

A gorgeous hallway

I am trying out a new routine with this blog: I am going to post features as they are published. So last week I showed off the gorgeous Georgian townhouse in the current Period Living magazine. Sounds obvious, I know, but for various reasons I am usually much more random than that I am afraid […]

A Georgian Townhouse in Berwick Upon Tweed

This quiet town located on the border between Scotland and England is not to be underestimated: steeped in history, its possession changed hands several times over the centuries between the two kingdoms. The centre is a warren of elegant Georgian streets and squares and is ringed by the fascinating medieval town walls. At the head […]

A converted chapel

We photographed and styled this beautiful property in a village in North Northumberland for Period Living magazine recently and it appeared in the January issue. London based journalist, Stephanie Smith, got in touch and introduced us to the owner Dean Keyworth and his husband, Gavin Hilton and we were intrigued. I had seen the house […]

Photoshoots in a pandemic

When Covid hit, we, like many business owners felt quite anxious. How do you navigate a photography business in a global pandemic? We had no choice but to stay at home in the initial lockdown. Going in to people’s homes and photographing them and interviewing them was an absolute no-no and my travel pieces, that […]

Why I need to do my course…

This move has been such a learning curve. When we completed our last home we had a strong feeling that we needed to do another house, to put into practice everything we had learnt from the project. We honestly thought we knew it all! Errr no, we did make mistakes and we did learn from […]

Carly Kyle’s Edinburgh Home

We did a shoot recently of a gorgeous Edinburgh terrace, owned by interior designer Carley Kyle. Carley studied interior architecture initially and then had a career break when her daughter was born and trained as a photographer as well. She has ably combined both careers with motherhood and during lockdown she started a line of […]
