North is Now.

I’m delighted to finally share a project I’ve been working on for the past 6 months with you all!When Yvonne from TYRO (studios) first slid into my Instagram DM’s with a series of voice notes I was intrigued.. not least of all because I’m someone who hates receiving voice notes, haha. But I overcame my aversion and, as I listened to them one-by-one (because yes, there was a whole series!), I became more and more excited because what Yvonne was

An artistic escape.

When it comes to choosing artwork for your walls, sometimes making a decision and actually committing to a particular piece can feel utterly overwhelming! For many years, in my previous rented flats, I’ve avoided making a commitment by invoking the ‘do not damage the walls’ clause in my contact, and opted to simply lean layered pieces of framed artwork against the wall instead.

As we begin to spend far more time in our homes than we ever have in recent times, finding joy in the mundane household tasks that have been piling up over the months can be a bit of a godsend.

Light up, responsibly.

One thing that instantly makes me feel at home in a new place is lighting one of my favourite candles and having a warm, familiar scent fill the air, transfusing the space with a sense of comfort and wellbeing.  Over the past few years I’ve become particularly obsessive in my pursuit of the best candle brands, and scents within their collections. It will probably come as no surprise, but not all candles are created equal. I’m always amazed by how
