In 2015, our home was featured in January's edition of Style at Home magazine (on sale in December 2015) and this blog was shortlisted in the Best DIY And Craft Blog category in the Amara Interior Blog Awards. In 2014, our previous home in Leeds was featured in August's edition of Style At Home magazine. In 2013, I was selected as one of the top 50 interior design websites by The Telegraph. When I have time, I contribute to the UK travel website This Is Your Kingdom and you can see my profile and reviews here.

I occasionally work with brands or companies in the form of sponsored posts. I write them myself and prefer to use my own images as much as possible. I don't accept any pre-written content.

All my sponsored posts are clearly labelled as such so that my readers are fully aware. Please email me at if you'd like to discuss a sponsored post. Thank you!


  1. Hi, I really like your spring, summer, autumn and winter embroidery in the circular frame. How can I get the pattern? I would like to make them.

    1. Hi there, and thank you. I'm afraid there isn't really a pattern as such. Some elements of the embroideries, particularly in the Autumn hoop, were taken from a pattern in an old edition of Mollie Makes (number 22). But the additional details and idea to sew one for each season was mine. I drew the patterns freehand onto the linen with a fading ink pen then stitched over them so it is quite easy to recreate, but if you could get your hands on issue 22 of Mollie Makes that would help you a lot.



Hello there! Thank you for leaving a comment. I read them all and I always try to answer questions, although sometimes it takes me a while.
