Homes Away From Home: Crossing Condotti

P and I recently escaped for a gorgeous few days in romantic Rome - we were over there to celebrate a friends birthday and it was the perfect place for some serious pottering in the sunshine as well as celebrating in style in a country that has some the best food and wine in the world. The weather was beautiful and we stayed in one of Rome's best kept secrets...a gorgeous little boutique hotel called Crossing Condotti. Hidden away on a side street literally seconds walk from the bottom of the Spanish Steps, it was the perfect place to base ourselves and we received such a warm welcome.

Our room was beautifully designed for both style and comfort; the bed perfect to collapse into after a long day walking and Marco, hosting us at the hotel, gave us some fantastic recommendations for food and drink spots - places that locals would frequent rather than sticking to the main tourist spots and we were so grateful to him for this. We had an amazing weekend and I would highly recommend staying there next time you're in beautiful Roma!

I hope you're enjoying this lovely Indian Summer as much as I am.

Have a gorgeous weekend!

My Work: Our New Project Is Underway!

It's September and there is a distinct feeling of Autumn in the air - I love this time of year, it always gives me that 'back to school' feeling and I have to resist buying a new pencil case to celebrate! Perfectly fitting with the time of year, we are starting work on our new project; a beautiful Victorian house in a Conservation Area in South-West London. 

The house is currently split into two flats so our first challenge is to get planning permission to convert back into a single dwelling. We have spoken with the council, who say that this fits with their plans for the area, so fingers crossed the application will go smoothly. Once that's happened we will then start work on a full refurbishment and rear extension to create a lovely kitchen and dining area.

Here are some initial pictures of the house - I'm so excited to bring it back to it's best - so many beautiful original features and so much potential!

LMH Giveaway: The Flower Appreciation Society

Those of you who read the blog regularly will know that I am a little obsessed with flowers! In fact so much so that I'm planning to learn garden design to offer alongside interior design in the future - something I am super excited about.

More excitingly this week I have the pleasure of  sharing this gorgeous book with you and I have two copies to give away to other equally flower obsessed readers! The book is by Anna Day and Ellie Jauncey, who run The Flower Appreciation Society in London. 

The creations from their studio are relaxed, natural and breathtaking, which is exactly the style I love - nothing too fussy, just simple bouquets that let the individual flowers do the talking and Anna and Ellie achieve this with aplomb.

In their first book they take readers through the A-Z of blooms - it's the perfect guide for a bride researching her bouquet, or just flower fanatics like me to learn to make the most of them in your own home.

It's a beautiful book and to be in with a chance of winning a copy you just have to like Little Miss Homes on Facebook, follow me on Instagram and let me know either in a comment below this post what your favourite flower is and why.

Good Luck!

Interiors Inspiration: Heaven in Bradford on Avon

One of the things I spend a lot of my time doing for work is browsing property portals. I have different alerts set up for various locations around the UK, so that I can keep across house prices and also spot good development opportunities when they arise. I haven't really shared many of my finds here on the blog with you before now, but this house just has to be shared! 

In my fantasy world this is where I would live. It ticks all the boxes for me; it is a property steeped in history, surrounded by beautiful gardens, with a view to die for, as well as beautiful large windows in plentiful supply! To me those are the components that make the perfect house and the owners have done an amazing job with the interiors - it's hardly surprising that it went under offer almost as soon as it came on the market!

Enjoy these beautiful images and I hope they don't distract you from your work for too long...
