    ‘If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.’ (The Secret Garden)

    The Frances Hodgson Burnett novel about a neglected, locked-up garden; an abandoned, sour little girl and how each brings the other back to life has long been a favourite of mine, and it came instantly to my mind when I saw this bedroom, and I imagined turning a key in a long-bolted door and emerging into a space filled with light, nature – and a little bit of magic.

    Bring summer inside…

    Summer officially starts this week – we all saw the friendly reminder pop up on our Facebook feed. But then we opened our curtains to the pouring rain and felt like jumping on a plane to an exotic island instead. However, if you’re not lucky enough to be escaping the UK, I think it’s time to think of other ideas to make it feel like the warm weather

    Beyond the pale

    Once, when asked for her advice about wearing accessories, Coco Chanel is said to have replied, ‘Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.’ Given that Chanel is renowned as being the most elegant woman in the world, it couldn’t hurt to follow her advice, and even though, when she gave this tip, she probably wasn’t talking about my bedroom, I’m going to pretend she was.

    Who wants a weekend lie-in, when the sun’s shining? Certainly not me. An early breakfast in the garden, before the day gets really warm (hopefully), is a cracking way to kick-start the weekend.

    Although this pretty summery bedroom maybe enough to tempt even the most ardent early riser…

    It’s all about hot, bright colours this season – to match the hot, bright summer we’re definitely going to have!

    If you’re not brave enough to replace your tasteful pale cream/cafe au lait/ecru living room scheme, quite yet, then why not start upstairs?

    Balancing act

    by  • April 26, 2016 • Beautiful boudoirs • 0 Comments

    Whatever I know about interior design has been learnt through observation – it certainly isn’t taught and definitely isn’t theoretical. But believe it or not, there is science behind good design, whether that be interior, exterior, product, graphic… As soon as I saw this image, it appealed on a certain level. It wasn’t the monochrome (I like a bit of colour in my life), it wasn’t the headboards (a little too feminine) and it certainly wasn’t
