Peep show: Henry and Carolyn’s little shepherd’s hut

A few weekends ago I decided to get out of London and head to the countryside in search of fresh air and something new. Arriving at a little campsite consisting of a small wigwam, shepherd’s hut, compost loo and outdoor bath, nestled in the garden of English B&B owners Henry and Carolyn, I felt I […]

Peep show: Trasierra, Andalusia

Last week I was lucky enough to join lovely Charlotte Scott, British interior designer turned indomitable hotel owner , and her fun-loving progeny in their dreamy family home -cum-hotel, Trasierra, perched in the Sierra Norte just over an hour’s drive from Seville. The house is breathtaking, and the result of years and years of love […]

Peep show: The Colour Purple

Papal, regal, seductive, exotic, noble, electric, psychedelic, Cadbury’s Dairy Milk… Whatever it means to you, you have to dig purple.

Peep show: white rooms

Obsessing over the imminent decoration of my little loft, which is currently a rather grubby shade of white, I have spent most of my time recently pondering the merits of off-white versus chiffon white versus misty white versus stone white… and so on. No one warned me how many shades of white there are and […]

Peep show: Zach Motl’s tiny apartment

Zach Motl’s magnificent Brooklyn apartment has caught the eye of a fair few publications, including the New York Times and The Neotraditionalist. Zach has created one of the quirkiest, most stylish homes I have seen in a while out of a mere 178 square feet. This is one tiny room. He rents the Brooklyn studio […]

Peep show: Amanda’s Tudor manor house

Based just outside Oxford, Amanda has lived in this idyllic Tudor house since she was a child, inheriting it from her parents as a young adult. To me, the style is the perfect balance between  shabby chic and old-school English grandeur, and totally unique in its mishmash of influences, with candlelit altars sitting happily alongside […]

Peep show: paint the town red

I have always naturally avoided red both in my wardrobe and my home. But lately it seems to be popping up all over the place and I have come to think that this is no bad thing: Images via Elle Decor, Apartment Therapy, Ideal Home and Laura Ashley. Sceptics like myself should probably start with […]

Peep show: Anthropologie Kings Road

I came over all wistful and nostalgic when I saw that age-old Antiquarius on the Kings Road was closing down. But I got over it as soon as I heard that Anthropologie – who can’t put a foot wrong right now – were revamping the space. I think it looks amazing, and will be a […]

Peep show: eclectic bedrooms

As I am moving flat soon (fingers crossed), I woke up today in urgent need of inspirational shots, before all my ideas become too muddled and I lose all direction. I thought I would share my top three with you – a winning mixture of modern luxury and ragged charm. Images via pointclickhome For inspirational bedroom […]

Peep show: Sophie Conran’s countryside Temple

Sophie Conran does it all – she bakes, she writes, she arranges flowers, she designs porcelain, cutlery, and she’s a mum on top of that. And she does it all so well. She has recently added another string to her bow with Temple Guiting – a countryside retreat in the Cotswolds where you can go […]
