Bathroom Trends

I had lots of lovely feedback and chat about my bathroom goals post – I was sharing my thoughts on my dream bathroom, where money was no object. I was talking about my ‘next house’ where magically the seller had installed a top of the range Philippe Starck bathroom. In this post I would like to […]

Short of space?

Before we moved to Gullane and bought our forever home, we lived in a lovely but pretty tiny house in Edinburgh. We were able to do it up very nicely because it was so small our materials costs were almost zero – charcoal sisal in the hall? No problem, we only needed one square metre! […]

A Perfect Finish

Sometimes we come across a house and it just stays with us. We are left in awe by the sheer work and imagination of the owners. This house is on the coast of Fife – yes Fife! The owner spotted a run down 1970s chalet in poor repair, overlooking the sea and bought it. The […]

Tony Singh

Had a fab time styling on a shoot recently for Scottish kitchen company Kitchens International. The owner of the kitchen was the illustrious celebrity chef Tony Singh. We were very intrigued because he holds regular supper clubs and cookery demos in his Edinburgh home, so knew that his kitchen would be something really special. We […]

My Garden Dream

I literally woke up to find our garden in Ideal Home magazine – and it wasn’t a dream!We bought our unique brutalist 1970s house about 15 years ago, convinced that we could make it work as a family home and errr, well, slowly we got there.When we first bought our house, this was the back […]

Leigh Bagley

I never take it for granted living on this beautiful stretch of coastline. Whenever visitors arrive they are in awe of the peace, the beauty, Gullane beach is our back yard, the incredible friendliness of this area and all on the doorstep of Edinburgh, a half hour train ride away, with Glasgow only another hour […]

2more Heads

We love keeping in touch with people we photograph and hearing their news when they set up a business or move house. Just as wedding photographers often happily follow up with baby photographs, sibling’s weddings and friends, we do too. So we were delighted when we met  Catherine and Cameron McCallum, the owners of this […]

A clear winner

Every so often I come across a house I would dearly like to live in. You would think this would happen all too often in my job, but actually I am a contented soul and very happy to come home, but I did think twice leaving this place. I honestly think it was the louvred […]

Indoor Kerb Appeal – the Hall

We all know about kerb appeal, the importance of a nice front door, a few pots and if you have a front garden, making it relate to the street prettily. We have a long way to go but we have made a start with our maturing virginia creeper, collection of terracotta pots and decision to […]

Sealoch House

Autumn is upon us and I am really enjoying the still warm weekends and rich colours. Anyone exploring the Highlands during the rest of the summer would do well to stop off in Ullapool and enjoy the hospitality of Terry and Shirley Rose, owners of Westlea House, a stylish Boutique B&B in the heart of […]

Jet Set

What do you do if you want to build a house and you own an Airfield? Well, obviously, you build a house on an airfield… The subject of an episode of Grand Designs, this amazing home was built at Strathven Airfield, the owners were fearless in their objectives and have created, with the help of […]

A Fuchsia garden

Stunning weather in Gullane today and we are off on holiday soon…definitely garden season…gardening is a passion that has always been inside – for many years deep inside me, because I was bought up in a flat in Central London and then moved to a similar, top floor flat, in Glasgow… I am spoilt because […]

The Edge

Here is a new home and some! I was saying in my last post that Artwork is such a wonderful finishing touch to a home. This house is a work of art though…it hardly needs art to finish it off… The Edge is a stunning home designed and built by its owners on the edge […]
