Liz and Corentin Lamour have diversified their farm in Brittany, northwest France, by transforming some of the cottages and barns on site into unique holiday accommodation for people who want to escape to the country for a while. Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of styling and writing about many of their projects for editorial features, but this inspiring little cottage was the first…

finding beauty everywhere

As an interiors writer and stylist specialising in real home features for interiors magazines, I get to travel all over Europe to style people's homes, so on this blog I'm going to be sharing some of the lovely homes I visit, as well as the locations that I end up in.

I'm also passionate about good food, nature, art, urban design and architecture so there'll be the odd smattering of posts that relate to what I get up to on my days off, whether on my own or with my family, Mr Jones and Lillie-Mae, and Daisy pup.

I hope you enjoy it,
