Bouclé textiles are going to be a big trend into 2021 and they are the perfect choice to cosy up your home this winter.
I’ve made some exciting Autumn home updates with the help of Habitat. Come and see what changes I’ve made and how my living room looks now.
The growing trends of craftsmanship, natural materials and imperfect finishes make rattan interiors a top choice in 2020.
Protective office screens may become the new normal in the post-pandemic workplace. This selection of screens are not only functional, they also look good.
As many of us have been forced to work from home for the past few months, and this may become the new normal, I thought it would be helpful to round up some of the best space-saving desks on the market.
Josh & Oli of Forge Creative tell us about the custom wooden furniture and home accessories that they create in their workshop in Sussex.
An interview with Deirdre Mc Gettrick, founder of furniture comparison site Kuldea.
When we bought our flat we moved from a three bedroom town house that was a lot more spacious than where we live now. My husband and I had an office each which was pure bliss and it meant that our living space was spread nicely out over the two floors. Because we had these
October is turning out to be really lovely. I don’t know about where you are, but here in Devon it’s been pretty sunny and dry. It’s still really cold but I don’t mind that so much as long as it’s not wet. And can we just talk about all the beautiful colours that we’re seeing
Today I’d like to share another exciting design find with you guys and this one is a lovely new company that has sprung up recently in Devon. Vincent Trading is run by Emma and Mike who make and sell beautiful handmade and reclaimed wooden items alongside beautiful gifts and homewares. Based by the sea in
You may have noticed from quite a few of my product round-up posts that I’ve always been a bit of a fan of MADE.COM (affiliate). Ever since I first discovered MADE.COM back in 2010 and interviewed their co-founder Ning Lee in 2011, I have been a big fan of the company and the products that
I’ve always found it very strange to write advice pieces like this as I often have no idea about the topic myself. I have to do a whole heap of research before writing these posts, but that is one of the reasons why I love my blog so much. It’s kind of like a personal
Earlier this year, IKEA opened a store in Exeter and after visiting last month I can confirm that it is a lovely store. I fully intend to be a regular IKEA visitor having waited decades to have a store open up here in Devon. I’ve always been a big fan of the Swedish superstore and
Natural materials is not a new trend I’m predicting by any means, however it is a strong trend at the moment so I figured it deserves its own post. I kind of covered it a little in my post about the Global Nomad trend, but the trend for natural materials in interiors could stand on
I had the pleasure recently of visiting Salone del Mobile in Milan as a guest of DFS. It was my first trip to the renowned furniture fair, which received almost half a million visitors over six days, from 188 different countries. I have wanted to visit Salone for years, but I never had the chance so when
Sofas are probably one of the biggest household expenses when it comes to decorating and furnishing a house. Most people don’t mind investing a decent chunk of money into a sofa given that it is the main piece of furniture in a living room and it gets a reasonable amount of use. In fact, people
Happy Monday guys! Today we’re talking about fringing in interiors. As I’ve explained here before, I do like to share all sorts of interiors trends with you guys, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I like them myself. I can appreciate them for what they are of course and the reason I feature them here on
I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned this before, but my husband is actually Polish and since we met I have taken a really keen interest in Poland and all things Polish. I’ve been trying to learn the language for 10 years now and I’ve still not nailed it despite having a natural talent for
Over a decade ago, Canadian native Lesley Pennington upped sticks in favour of a house by the water in stunning Sweden, and in that house she bought herself a standard IKEA sofa. But that sofa was not quite the personalised look that Lesley wanted for her home, and it was from this thought that Bemz
You guys, the last giveaway I ran was hugely popular, the most popular ever in fact. I love doing giveaways for you as I feel like it’s a great way to reward you for being such loyal readers and coming back time and time again to check out what I’m writing about. If you were
I realised the other day that it’s been an absolute age since my last giveaway. It was back in May and I figure it’s time to remedy that and give you guys something to get excited about. So I have teamed up with The Lounge Co who I introduced you to this time last year
As you probably know, my little family lives in a small two bedroom flat. It’s adequate for our needs at the moment but I often wish we had more storage space in the flat, especially for all the kids’ toys. Ideally I’d like an extra room we could use as a playroom so that we
Today, I’m talking a little bit about predicting trends. Interior trends, like the trends we see in fashion, come and go. They are cyclical in nature but they are not always easy to predict. Now I think I’m pretty good at predicting upcoming trends. Some trends, known as macro trends, really explode onto the scene
I am so excited to share today’s post with you guys! Just after Christmas my husband and I decided that it was time to do a mini livingroom makeover. I say mini makeover as it was actually the first room we tackled when we moved in back in 2013 so it didn’t need much doing
