too cool for school

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…

Shortly after embarking on my freelance career, I had the pleasure of visiting a part of France I’d never been to before: Brittany. Photographer Rob Sanderson and I traveled by ferry then took the short drive to our location for the week: Celine Lamour’s incredible farmhouse and gites, where we styled and shot, among others, this charming yet cool former forge…

on location

Last week, photographer Rob Sanderson and I went on a Christmas road trip to shoot four festive houses. I’d been planning it for months, arranging dates with the owners, discussing the decorating styles they were planning, making sure they would have their Christmas trees up, presents wrapped and a selection of decorations for the entire house. Thankfully, all four owners were amazing, and just as excited as me about their photo shoot, so they each went above and beyond to make their home beautifully festive and incredibly cosy…

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,
