A new look for Autumn.

The transition between seasons is often when I feel most inspired to make changes within my home. I can’t quite believe it but we’ve been in our ‘new place’ for a year now, having moved in late September 2020. It feels both like yesterday and a lifetime ago, as can often be the way. Having spent a full twelve months – and all four seasons – getting to know the quirks of our home and how best to inhabit it. I’ve

Where’s your head at?

Oh, how times have changed since I first moved to Manchester and was adamant I wanted a platform bed for my flat, sans headboard.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m still personally drawn to the clean simplicity of Scandinavian/Japanese style “floating” platform beds and absolutely adore my Mirage platform bed from The Futon Company, but having moved in with my boyfriend recently I’ve been told in no uncertain terms that if we’re to keep my bed over his (entirely the right

Our first stop was Lancashire – Darwen, to be precise – and the home of Herbert

M&S have long been a go-to destination for all things better sleep related on the British high street, offering outstanding quality and product innovations to ensure their customers are able to create the perfect sleep retreat in their homes.

The allure of linen.

As the evenings start to draw in and the lure of hibernation begins to beckon, all thoughts turn to the bedroom and creating a nice, cosy cocoon in which to retreat during the long, dark winter months. Choosing the right bedlinen for your winter lair is essential, and in recent years I’ve become a total convert to the relaxed, seductive charm of 100% linen bedding – all crumpled and carefree and oh so comfy! Since purchasing my first linen bedding
