In the summertime I really love to light plain white candles in the daytime, there’s something so fresh and happy about them, but fragranced candles on the other hand tend to go back into cupboards as I find the aroma too overbearing at this time of year. Sometimes I switch up with diffuser reeds, I like the gentle steady aroma they give, but they are pretty expensive. So this year I thought I’d have a go at creating my own, it was so easy and really nice to think about the elements I wanted in my scent. So today I thought I’d share some tips with you on how to make your own bespoke summer fragrance which will flood your house with joy and evoke the smells of Mediterranean summers.Read More
The beauty of simplicity, this table from Houseology is one of my favourite pieces, ever.
Good morning friends, and welcome to a new month. It’s now officially Spring in the UK, which means official home makeover time, right? My goodness, I am so happy with the Spring refresh in the bedroom.Read More
I’ve spent a lot of time recently moving trinket-y objects around the house, partly because I’m trying to style the house properly for photo shoots (which I’m sure will be re-styled on the day!) and partly just to shake things up a bit,Read More
As I sit typing this, it is the very first time I have had a completed study to write in. We have allocated a room for books and writing each time we’ve moved, but they have always existed somewhere between dream space and student hovel if I’m entirely honest. Whether it be hideous inherited blue carpets thought about but never replaced due to sound proofing issues for the flat downstairs or plans for organisation and tranquility that quickly turned to dumping ground for all the things we couldn’t think where to home, this my friends, finally, is my dream office space. A few weeks ago we sanded and sealed the floors. This has got to be our most hated d.i.y task, Dan because it’s such back breaking work, me because I’m more than a little scared of the machine you use to sand the floors with! But, it’s also one of the most rewarding and transformative tasks. We used a dark oak stain varnish from Ronsealwhich I really love, though I wasn’t sure it was dark enough after the first coat and was very heartened to find Swoonworthy’s beautiful floor in the same finish during a Google search halfway through.
