When we first viewed our house we were looking at it as a renovation project so we knew we would be changing it a lot. One of the first things that struck us was how dark and gloomy it was and I knew bringing lots of natural light in was going to be a big part of the project….. A Roofmaker rooflight was the perfect choice….
As I’m sure you know, unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, velvet has made a big comeback in interiors over the last couple of years. So when sofa.com got in touch and asked if I’d like to work with them on an interiors campaign and choose a piece of furniture, I immmediatly popped over to their website to check they offered velvet fabrics for their armchairs….. And luckily for me they most certainly do!
When we had the wood burner fitted in the sitting room we just cut the carpet away and this is how it’s stayed, with the dodgy cut edges thankfully covered by rugs and the sofa. So when flooring company Kersaint Cobb got in touch and asked me to take a look at their floor coverings I jumped at the chance.
I love houseplants, which is great because these days no home decor is complete without them! Indoor plants have made a big comeback in recent years and most of us have anything ranging from a coupler of succulents plants to a whole range of shapes and sizes…… I myself have 46 at last count!
Mina Bruce lives on the beautiful Isle of Skye, in the Northwest of Scotland, and her account @vintage_skye is one of my favourites on Instagram. I just love Mina's modern rustic style and was thrilled when she agreed to let me feature her home on the blog…….
I was resigned to the fact that until we could afford solid shutters along the bottom of the window we'd have to live with the glare and the view of the windows next door. That was until I was introduced to The Window Film Company....... I had never even thought about applying a window film..... But let me tell you it's been the perfect solution!
You can't open an interiors magazine these days without seeing a velvet sofa or two..... Velvet just looks and feels luxurious and gives a touch of glamour to any room and is certainly a big interior trend at the moment. I had been after one for ages and finally Mr H relented and agreed a velvet sofa was a necessity in our home.....
Shutters, yep I love them! I like the clean aesthetic of shutters inside the window frame and the fact that they look just as fabulous in a period property as they do in a contemporary new build. So, when the people at Shutterly Fabulous asked me to write a blog about them I knew this was going to be right up my street!
This weeks blog post is all about mirrors! Every home has them and used creatively they can make a real difference to any room.... Here's a run down of my mirrors at home plus the three that are currently at the top of my wishlist.
