Winter White - Frith Rugs


Decorating our home for Winter is about layering textures and white tones.  White looks amazing in the Summer with the sunshine flooding the windows but can look cold and harsh in the Winter. 

Decorating with Neutrals for Christmas


Christmas , my favourite time of year.  I love everything about the anticipation, the build up, the special indulgent food, the time to rest and spend time with family and friends and of course, the decorating ! 

The Real Flower Company


I love flowers.  More often than not I have to buy them for myself these days.  Whilst rushing round the supermarket I might grab some value roses or our local charity shop often sells "past their best" flowers which will last a day or two longer and bring some cheer to my home.

Despite the rain today, I needed to get a breath of fresh air at lunchtime and luckily I live and work in Heavitree in Exeter.  Luckily, because there happen to be not one but five charity shops, all of which usually have a treasure or two.

It's been a year, a year  since I received a telephone call late at night.

Hotel Chocolat Tasting Club


Winter is coming and that means its time to cosy on down.  If I was Danish, I would be thinking all things Hygge.  The pressure is off, I didn't achieve the beach bod over the summer (nor lets be honest, ever will again).

I've long been an advocate of anything that can be recycled or re-loved.  So when I came across a facebook post of a friend showing the amazing Retuna Recycling Shopping Mall in Sweden, I had to take a closer look.
