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...

My Work: Kitchen in South West London


This week I want to share some pictures of a kitchen I designed in a South-West London home last year. The Victorian Terrace property had a side return extension to maximise the space to the rear as these houses are quite narrow and it can be a bit of a squeeze to fit in the kitchen/dining room that modern living aspires to without extending to the side or the rear. In terms of layout, we wanted a large island, so designed that to include various units as well as a wine rack and fridge. I kept the colour scheme neutral and fresh, using an off white marble for the kitchen tops, which complemented the Carrara on the table perfectly.

I hope you are all enjoying this gorgeous weather we are having at the moment!

Your Home: Linen Bed Linen!

Happy Easter Monday!

What a gorgeous sunny day - I can't wait to get outside and tackle gardening that I've been putting off until the sun starts to shine for Spring. Before I head outdoors I just wanted to quickly share a small obsession of mine at the moment - linen bed linen! The perfect way to freshen up you bedroom for Spring, they are so soft to the touch and also create a lovely relaxing vibe to the room - a real contrast to the crisp white Egyptian cotton that we usually have on our bed. 

I'm lusting after these two sets by Designers Guild which would work so well individually or using a mix of the two colours. Urbanara also have a great selection of colours in their collection, as well as a gorgeous selection of children's bed linen so that you can update their bedroom with a gorgeous new look for Spring too. 

Enjoy your Easter Monday and see you again soon.

Homes Away From Home: Turtle Bay, Sri Lanka


This weekend during the torrential rain and winds (welcome to Spring everyone!) I found myself day dreaming of being back in beautiful Sri Lanka, so I thought it was time to share another of our favourite spots there with you. 

The beautiful and very relaxed Turtle Bay - I know that places are often referred to as being 'off the beaten track', but when referring to this hotel, this really is the case. We turned off the main road from Tangalla and spent almost 45 minutes driving along a tiny track before we reached the coast and the hidden haven that is Turtle Bay. 

The hotel is simple, but that is part of the charm and as you can see from the pictures it is set on the most stunning, totally unspoilt Southern Sri Lankan beach. There really was not a soul there except for the few hotel guests and the staff were utterly charming - nothing was too much trouble and the food was fabulous too. 

I would highly recommend if you are really looking to get away from it all and it's brilliant value for money too!
