Beautiful pink and white tulips

April is such a lovely month, full of optimism for the summer ahead! The days are getting longer and brighter, the Spring lambs are being born and the tulips are starting to flower. What are your plans for this month? I have several house projects on the go and lots more ideas for my vintage china!

Two years ago I was asked to submit a design for the Chairish “White to Bright Design Challenge” which was great fun. 2017 has seen the launch of a sister website Decaso and a new request to write a post for their Interior Design Bucket List Challenge. Decaso showcases some of the most amazing decorative arts from around the world and I have used some of their pieces to create my dream French Style Bedroom.

I need a holiday

Are you planning a summer holiday?  Trying to get the best holiday deal can mean a lot of legwork, time and effort, so hopefully my tips for Holiday Planning will make your life a bit easier…

I like to have a pot of soup on the stove ready for hungry kids, adults, unexpected lunch guests etc! A bowl of soup is a great way to stave off hunger if you are trying to lose weight plus you are increasing your vegetable intake! I love Carrot Soup and found this recipe on the Delicious website, the orange is a nice addition to a classic recipe… Carrot and Orange Soup


For design inspiration, one of my first ports of call is Houzz, this is a fantastic website with lots of design ideas plus tools to help you plan and execute your project. I created my Clever Spaces ideabook a while ago but as with all good design, it is timeless. I hope it gives you some great ideas!
