A spring clean.

The middle of March, the slightest whiff of Spring on the horizon, and the desire to deep clean and sort out every corner of the home reaches fever pitch..!   Who am I kidding? I’ve been itching to spring clean ever since the start of the year, but now that the turning back of the clocks is imminent, and daylight is starting to reach the furthest flung corners of the house again, it’s finally time. There’s something quite cathartic about a

September stories.

The start of September always ushers in a raft of emails in my inbox, showcasing the new season collections from some of my favourite design brands.  While I don’t believe anyone needs to be updating their home decor on a yearly – let alone seasonal – basis, I’m always excited to see new lifestyle imagery from the brands whose designs I’m always most drawn to; to gain inspiration for new ways of arranging my home, new colours I might like

Follow the route.

Not only do her products encourage a deep connection with both craft and nature, but she is also based in Chester —a

Arrangements in blue.

Blue —and more specifically cobalt blue— has always been my colour of choice for adding accents to my home. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll have likely noticed that cobalt blue has been everywhere in the fashion world lately; from the SS23 runways to the windows of COS, Arket et al and, where fashion leads, homeware usually follows.    For me, the colour blue always evokes a sense of wanderlust and escapism, especially when paired with creamy whites
