WINTER TONES

WINTER TONES

  Just lately I’ve gone mad for cushions in wintery colours, frosty, sparkling, knitted, cosy and velvet. I managed to narrow my favourites down to these 10. Charcoal velvet and Ikat – Sparrow and Co, Lace Lino Lavado – Zara Home, Dip Dye and Big Ted- John Lewis, Sequinned Baroque – Anthropologie, Silver Sequins and […]


BLOG OF THE WEEK-PRETTY GINGHAM

BLOG OF THE WEEK-PRETTY GINGHAM

Pale colours and subtle surroundings, some pages from the beautiful blog Pretty Gingham by Tanja in Helsinki-Finland. The cosy images and simple pleasures are inspiring me to fall back in love with my long neglected camera. Realising I rarely take pictures these days, unless I happen to see something and snap it on my phone! This […]


DECISIONS DECISIONS

DECISIONS DECISIONS

As we near being ready to sell our apartment and looking seriously for a new home. I am obsessing heavily over how our new bedroom will look. Drawn to both light and dark ideas, we started halfway dark here with brown grey walls, before I whited out all the rooms one Summer. I love the […]


CHARCOAL PAINT AND VINTAGE LACE

CHARCOAL PAINT AND VINTAGE LACE

Still wondering what I will make with all that beautiful vintage lace I was given last year. I will show you in detail some more of the amazing pieces, soon. But I thought while I am thinking on it, the best thing to do was to repaint my favourite pin board with charcoal paint and […]

L&S MEETS LAURA ASHLEY

I can’t express how exciting this day is for me (thanks Kate!). After being a life long fan, I was recently asked to work on a feature with the lovely peeps over at the Laura Ashley Blog. I remember when my husband and I first moved in together, spending any chance we could visiting Laura Ashley […]


KEEPING THE CHILL OUT

KEEPING THE CHILL OUT

Toast’s new Autumn Winter look book is absolute perfection. A beautiful mix as always of natural colours and simple fabrics, all mingled in with wood, simple candles, and this season 50s style enamel ware and bakelite lighting.


THE SNUGGLE SEASON

THE SNUGGLE SEASON

Only a month or so away, my favourite season will begin, a light breeze will whip at the trees pulling down the leaves, leaves that seem like they only just opened, due to the crazy weather this year, Summer is passing in a wave of torrential downpours with grey skies and every now and then […]


THERES NO PLACE LIKE HOME

THERES NO PLACE LIKE HOME

Ha! Wrote this a while ago, but in all the mayhem didn’t finish it and just discovered it in my drafts. So, some more pictures from around the house, a winter mood board makes way for a carnival of colours over my mantlepiece to celebrate the return of sunshine, a new (old) pen pot for […]


THE SUNSHINE WEEK

THE SUNSHINE WEEK

Hello, just thought I’d swing by and share some of my Instagram pics of that last few days. Finally it came after nearly resorting to wearing gloves again last week-The Sun. So dearly missed I wondered if my days would ever be naturally bright again. So I am filling my days with walks, friends, flowers […]


THE OPPOSITE OF RAIN

THE OPPOSITE OF RAIN

I found something beautiful in my email today, these sunny bright flowers and some interior details to go with them. Solid rain on all days except the marathon since we arrived here last Monday, booo. So these charming yellow freesias and late daffodils are giving me the morning boost I need today x All images […]


TWELVE THINGS COX AND COX

OBSESSING OVER BEDS WITHOUT HEADBOARDS

OBSESSING OVER BEDS WITHOUT HEADBOARDS

I’m liking the look of-wall then bed, I can’t remember sleeping in a bed without a headboard and when Dean and I first moved in together I was super excited to buy a grown up pretty iron bedstead, but lately I have been collecting images of simple beds. I like the look of the pillows […]


SKILLS

SKILLS

Do you think there is any chance a plant killer like me could keep some of these babies alive and looking good for at least a month? Perhaps for a long while? Any hints of tips would be greatly appreciated I fear for the safety of my future garden. These are my dads, don’t worry […]
