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.

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, […]

A Spring Wreath

Spring has well and truly sprung now, a neighbour is baking Ukrainian garlic bread called Pampushky, in return for donations to the Red Cross, and I have just had a gorgeous walk in the sunshine to collect it. Really settling in to our new home, having felt very disorientated for quite a while. I reckon […]
