With all the wonderful tones and textures from the natural materials throughout the cottage, the Bells opted for a neutral colour palette when choosing paint, with subtle green and stone shades modestly slipping into the background…Keep reading
As soon as I saw Pam Weinstock’s bold and photographic designs on social media I knew they’d be perfect as props for a house I was styling for a magazine photoshoot, so I arranged to pop over to meet Pam at her London home, and see her work for myself – and of course to borrow a few cushions for the shoot…Keep reading
When I arranged to shoot this striking London home with photographer Rob Sanderson, I was thrilled that the homeowner, vintage dealer Tamara Broido, was totally up for an autumnal shoot so that I could arrive armed with boxes and boxes of majestic pumpkins and gourds, and some vibrant textiles that would encapsulate this incredible time of year…Keep reading

Catherine Ingleby is a talented artist who I met a couple of years ago when I styled her home for an interiors magazine feature in order to help her get editorial coverage for her work.

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,
