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!

Homes Away From Home: The Talbot Inn, Mells


A couple of weekend ago we headed down to Somerset, to one of our favourite villages in the world - where we got married in November 2012, the beautiful Mells. We booked to stay at The Talbot Inn, which is right next to the church in the middle of the gorgeous village - there were four of us plus one little one and we had the most amazing weekend! 

The weather was perfect - we took advantage and walked across to Babington House for a swim and lunch - even though it was early March we even managed a bit of sunbathing on the comfiest loungers in the world - sitting there sipping ginger and honey tea whilst watching the clouds pass by overhead will be one of my most lasting memories of the weekend. It was utter bliss! 

After a delicious lunch we walked back across the fields to The Talbot, where I soaked in a bath full of bubbles before heading down to supper. The food at the pub is fantastic and at weekends there is the added bonus of The Grill restaurant, which they run in one of the outbuildings. The boys shared an amazing meat platter while I enjoyed some of the nicest pulled pork I've ever tasted. 

I can't recommend this place enough. We were planning to try and pop back again for another weekend in a few months time, but it seems weekends are almost all fully booked for the rest of the year, so you have to book early!

Your Home: Blue & White Ceramics from Sophie Conran


I hope you all had a gorgeous weekend? We went to Mells in Somerset, which is one of our favourite places partly because it's the village where P and I got married and partly because it is just a very special place. 

I will share some gorgeous photos of our trip later in the week, but for now wanted to show you this beautiful new collection of blue and white ceramics from Sophie Conran. I am such a fan (if not a little obsessed by) blue and white crockery and if I had my way would have at least seven sets so I could use a different one for each day of the week! Sadly our kitchen doesn't have enough storage to indulge such a fantasy, so for now I will just have to imagine this new set on my table!

The pieces from the collection are all lovely and I think that small bowls below of the tea cups and saucers would make a gorgeous present for Mother's Day.

What is your interiors obsession? The one thing that you just couldn't live without and would collect if space and money allowed?

Have a great Monday and see you later in the week!
