Spring Home Updates (Simple as you like)

Much as I love to be cosy at home, it feels good to throw open the French doors to the garden and let the air in. (And to dry my washing outside. Brief pause to appreciate the lovely Instagrammers who share my obsession. Honestly, when it’s warm-ish and sunny I start prowling the house for things to wash.) Whilst I am unlikely (in the near future anyway, with small children and work to contend with) to find time for a good old-fashioned Spring clean, I do think it’s worth casting a critical eye over your home and seeing where you can add some seasonal tweaks. I do love a so-easy-it’s-almost-cheating Spring home update.…

We want to live here: a beautiful family home in South London

Love interiors? Good, so do we. And even better, we know someone who is not just brilliant at putting together a beautiful home, but is also willing to share her secrets. Step forward Laura Stephens, Interior Designer, colour-whizz and all-round amazing decor guru.

Ready to take a look? The children's bedroom are particularly lovely...…

We want to live here: Tula Goodwin’s colourful Singapore home

Colour is always a good idea, especially when it comes to decorating. And, especially when it comes to pink. Which is why my heart fluttered a little when I saw pictures of Tula Goodwin's beautiful Singapore home. Tula, who lives in an Peranakan house with her husband Henry and 3 daughters also loves colour, "especially pink" and wanted her home to "be cosy and homely." With a beautiful mix of gorgeous fabrics, colonial-style furnishings and bright pops of colour, Tula's home is just the thing to swoon over on a grey old November day...…

We want to live here: Natalie Cardew of Wonder & Rah’s gorgeous London home

Forget magazines, Instagram is my go-to destination for shopping inspiration. From fashion to home to those things that you never knew you needed until you saw them and then KAPOW you have to have them NOW - it's a brilliant showcase for style. It's where I've made a number of great finds including, most recently, Wonder & Rah, a gorgeous brand selling original design-orientated wall art for children's rooms by the very talented Natalie Cardew. Of course, as soon as I saw the pictures of the home she shares with husband Chris, son Leo (4), daughter Robyn (2) and cats Biffy and Whitney, I knew we had to feature it and ask her more about her decorative style and how she got Wonder & Rah off the ground...…
