Anyone who knows me, would have heard me excitedly chatting about my ideas for converting my loft. Only problem is this project is a long way off (I need money, honey).  A lack of funds ain’t gonna stop this girl from having lofty-ambitions. Let me show you around my dream loft.

When planning a kitchen re-design, it’s easy to get excited over units, fittings and appliances but completely forget about daylight. This is silly really, when natural light can make a room feel bigger and brighter. When it came to my own kitchen makeover, my builder came up with an ingenious idea to allow more light into my room. […]

  • Anna International - Love this! We are moving our kitchen from a tiny underground galley to our dining room, and just yesterday our builders added a new window at the back of the house (which faces south) which has made a HUGE difference to the amount of light in the room. I literally cannot wait to be washing up in front of it! (Never thought I would be excited about washing up). So I completely agree – considering window placement and changing it up if you don’t have the light you want is so important and also, pretty easy really if you have a decent builder! Hope my kitchen turns out half as beautiful as yours, and congrats on the Pinterest shortlisting! x28th April 2017 – 4:49 pmReplyCancel

It’s easy to get be overwhelmed when on a city break. Hours of walking around churches, museums, shops can mean you miss out on seeing the real side of a city.  That’s why on my recent Eurostar trip to Paris, I decided on a fresh approach – call it ‘A Travel State Of Mind’. It’s a check list of ideas […]
