It’s my husbands birthday today so we’re going to chill out, go for a wee bike ride and crack open a bottle of fizz!! Also one of my sisters in-law bought this gorgeous plant pot for my husband, I’m in love 😍
After the stage coffee scene , this is n accurate morning picture of myself in the morning.
I usually sleep with just a headscarf or an old cotton t-shirt, if my hair is still wet from #washday , and nothing else.
In the morning, I like to wrap up in my towel gown and start the day, wish usually is getting Nina dressed and ready, then preparing breakfast. I get on with my day in this "outfit" until I take my first long break from working, have a shower and finally get dressed or not😅
I have to say this is one of my favourite spot in the house for mirror selfie. This a vintage French mirror we got at a flea market in St Albans, when we used to live in Harpenden.
I love the scratches and age spots in the glass and how, when standing here, you have a little scenery reflected on the gold mirror opposite.
What’s your favorite outdoor activity? As the weather is cooling down here in New Zealand, I’m LOVING the crisp, clear days.⠀
It is so refreshing to spend time in the great outdoors to clear my mind and get some exercise! This was my Sunday walk 🐾⠀
How are you spending your winter days?

Looking through my old photos I stumbled across these photos of my eldest daughter Emily’s old bedroom from November 2016! We’ve updated it in the past year or so since she’s a teenager now and not into the ‘pretty pink princess’ bedroom anymore and, to be honest, my taste has changed a lot over the past few years too. Personally, I’m still not over those candy stripe walls though, I think they look good enough to eat 😁🍬🍥🍧🍡
We’re already planning Emily’s new bedroom for when we return to live in the UK 🇬🇧
I hope everyone had a SAFE, WILD and happy holiday weekend!! This bedroom though!!??😍😍👏👏 Our sets of 2ft by 2ft signs are great for above a bed too if you don’t want one huge wall piece and THIS bedroom is no exception! It’s gorgeous!!
Final Project- Apartment 2.
The final apartment I’ve designed is to be an Air B&B property. This consists of a kitchen and living space, bedroom, bathroom and dressing area in the corridor between. This follows a similar scheme to the main house I previously designed, the idea being that this will majorly stand out in the Air B&B market for being bold and different to the normal neutrals seen. This is a super luxury stay with a roll top bath in the bedroom, walk through shower, and sumptuous velvets, textures and patterns throughout. ✨
GOOOOOD MORNING! ☕️
I’ve got a busy day planned: Walk the dog, home workout, pop to the shops, home to re-stock wax melts, make some jewellery orders and work on some fabulous new ideas with a film to finish off the day! (That’s my plan anyway, let’s see how it goes)
We’ve added a little 10% off today to kick start the week with a bit of love! Use code ‘MAGIC’ at the checkout (excludes monthly boxes) ✨ ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Don’t forget today is the last day to order the monthly boxes... There aren’t many left! Have a wonderful day 🕊
The clock is painted black! I’m so happy with how it’s turned out. Thank you @heritagelifestyleshop for letting me pop in when you were closed to get the @anniesloanhome paint. I’m now thinking of painting the chairs black with the leftover paint. What do you think? 🖤
File this under: moments that have made me smile lately 🐱🌞✨

We’re getting close to finishing up our new build. While it’s been fun and a lot easier than a remodel, we kinda miss the remodel process! It’s just so satisfying to see something old new again. If you had a choice, would you rather remodel a home or build from scratch?
You know me.... weekends are for rearranging the house. I put my old rug back here bc I wanted something with a lil bit more “umph” if ya know what I mean.. 😂. Don’t worry, I’ll share later in the week where I put the braided white one though! And oOoOoO it’s cuteee! 😉

This family room has recently gotten some love on the gram, so I thought I would show another angle of it. This is in a Phoenix model, and shows how layering textures makes a neutral room pop!
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July! I spent the majority of the past two days trying to pick paint colors. We have a few tried and true colors we like to use, but every house is so different depending on how much light you get. A color that looks amazing in someone else’s house may look completely different in yours. We look at the samples in the daytime and nighttime and then put them in dark and light corners of a house to see which color is the winner. 📸: @stephgodfrey
