Oh London. With my people. Happy doesn’t even cut it. I am silly giddy. This month preparing for my family’s move to Charlotte has taken so much mental and physical energy out of me. I have been a flat out wreck of a person. It’s nice to turn off the anxious mind for a week even if it means getting behind more on life... Still worth it. #londoncalling

Softly does it #myhouseandhome@citytilesbathrooms
There are probably too many sheepskin rugs and velvet pieces in the house but I’m all for the cosy soft feel of things.
This photo was for the @houseandhomemagazine photo shoot for their May edition and I feel like a bit of an eejit posing like this but ironically there’s nothing I love more than reading a magazine. And it’s a rare occurrence these days so when it does happen I cherish it!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend

Hope you all had a great weekend 😊 the sun has disappeared here in Versailles and instead the grey clouds have brought heavy showers. I think I'm the only one who doesn't mind. Each time I hear rain, I think of home 💚
To brighten up my afternoon I've started listing these beauties. Looking forward to showing you more in the next few days 👍

5 things I do when I’m feeling like a bit of a mess 😬😬😬
1. I mope, procrastinate and feel guilty. Googling another Caroline Calloway article? Oh, go on then.
2. Eventually I turn to my podcast app in search of the thing I need to hear. This week I typed ‘Habits’ into the search bar and came across @deliciouslyella’s episode with @shahroo_izadi. I noted down questions such as ‘What will your life be like in 6 months if you don’t change?’ and it’s forced me to think deeply about why I fall into certain, procrastination-related behaviours.
3. Bring on the books! I’ve recently downloaded ‘The Kindness Method’, plus I always consult my well-worn copy of ‘The Anxiety solution by @chloebrotheridge. I definitely have a fear of things going too well and not being able to sustain the success.
4. I try to write things down and examine the thoughts going on in my head. It’s the best feeling when I look back at previous pages and realise that I’ve tackled the things that were bothering me.
5. I accept that this may happen again and gain a bit more knowledge about myself each time.
Are you having a ‘messy’ moment? Save this image just in case future you needs a helping hand. Also, at least my bed is organised right now! 😂 #howirent#myrentedabode#abmspaces#iwytkhome

As you’ve probably gathered by now, we love a splash of colour here at The Home Page - not least on a wet and grey day like today. And we’re pretty sure you’re going to love the new @plainenglishkitchens colour collection in collaboration with @ritakonig as much as we do.
Inspired by the storage of practical supplies and all that is found below stairs, this palette is anything but drab. Think yolky yellow, mandarin orange and vivid turquoise, balanced with pretty blue and soft plum all wrapped up with evocative names such as ‘burnt toast’, ‘candied peel’ and ‘mouldy plum’. They’re all available exclusively to @plainenglishkitchens customers.
While the weather forecast may be looking, frankly, a little depressing over the coming days, these brilliant shades have cheered us right up. 🎨
Back in Wexford today for a Workshop. No where better to be with the miserable weather today. But the weather didnt dampen the creativity and I'm pretty sure we used every colour I have today 😂Fab work by everyone and today's workshop takeaways are that brown is my new colour obsession and you will be seeing more of it and today had the funkiest chair revamp yet. Love it 👌💙💜❤🎨
Our piece from last Tuesday’s Knowlege Share Session in collaboration with @anniesloanme and @thewarehousedubai. We are so thrilled with how it came out!
This little beauty was an absolute dream to paint on. The paint was gliding on like melted butter and most of it only took one coat! Therese of Falaknaz The Warehouse tells me this is because the table is solid teak wood and has been sealed with gum!
We have given it a blended ombré look starting from @anniesloanhome Olive and Duck Egg Blue on the top, progressing to just Duck Egg Blue which then blends into Arles and then, finally, Burgundy. This was actually my first time trying out Burgundy and just look at that colour! 😍
We added touches of the colours here and there, the lightest hints of Gilding Wax and Gold Leaf and hand painted Magnolias before waxing it for a subtle sheen.
For those of you interested in attending our next Knowledge Share Session, there’s one scheduled for 10am on Tuesday the 24th of September. Please remember to call Arnold on 043285859 to book a spot as seats are limited!

When we got our hands on another Chinese cabinet, we decided to look to traditional chinoiserie motifs for inspiration.
We started off with a subtle drippy ombré base in Aubusson, Greek and Duck Egg Blue. We then painted on delicate flora (and a bit of fauna!) using over 10 Annie Sloan colours and followed this with detailing in black ink.
Countless hours of hard work later, lovely Lian is finally complete and we love it! 👩🏽🎨 Swipe ⬅️ for the before! 📸: @_sarfarazali
Our collection of vibrant velvet lampshades serve as the perfect antidote to darker autumnal evenings 💡

Happy Saturday! Im headed to the gym cuz I like when my @apple watch gives me a sticker for working hard. Who knew virtual stickers would motivate me? 🤓😂 I’m also motivated by food and clothes. And if I’m rewarded with a piece of home decor, even better. But for now I’ll take a pretend sticker.
