If I was in a position where money is absolutely no object, my dream job would be to work as a Farrow and Ball colour consultant. In fact, if money were no object, I’d go chat paint charts with people for free. I don’t know why – I just love thinking about colours and how they work together. In my own home we have finally annihilated the magnolia that dominated the walls for years. Whilst I’d still like to change furniture here or there, and would dearly like to replace the carpets. Each room definitely has colour. From the Plummett Grey in the Hallway,… View Post

As with everyone with an interest in design, I’m always looking for ways to bring new ideas into my home. It follows that I was therefore delighted to find that BoConcept had opened a store in Edinburgh, featuring their beautiful designer furniture. I headed along to the store on Rose Street to check out what they had in way of inspiration. We’ve recently repainted our living room and redesigned our playroom; and I’ve been working on finding things to finish off these rooms. I was keen to spy some accessories and gain some insight as to what I could do to… View Post

It’s officially now Spring, and whether the weather entirely agrees with that statement or not, Easter is undoubtedly fast approaching. I have many plans this holiday to spend time in my favourite brunch venue, and we’re definitely going to be making the most of our National Trust for Scotland membership.

Obviously, we’re going to be attending one of the Cadbury Egg Hunts the National Trust for… View Post

Close your eyes now and imagine how it would feel to reclaim your lounge for a glass of wine after bed time.  You walk into a calm, peaceful space without a plastic dinosaur in sight… Would it feel good if the only toys our children had were the ones that they loved and which encouraged their imaginations? Many of us are blessed to have lives full of family and friends who gift toys to our kids as a way to show love.  In my experience of working as professional declutterer in Edinburgh I have seen family homes overrun with toys because of this.  Busy parents… View Post

When thinking about Lighting Ideas for Kid’s rooms there are a few things to consider. I obviously like interior design and enjoy considering what to include in our own house. In the kid’s room, whilst I want things to look nice I also need them to be practical. They have to be safe and serve a function but it’s always nice if they also entertain. Lighting is a really easy way to add a bit of fun and quickly change the feel of a room. Although they kid’s share a space, I wanted them to be able to have their… View Post
