Bring a Little Provencal Charm to your Dinner Party

One reason why I love home decor, and tablescaping in particular, is because you can recreate any atmosphere and travel anywhere you like, simply by mixing linens, vintage bits, pretty ceramics and flowers. Today, I wanted to bring a bit of rustic Provence to my table and create my own […]

How to Buy Art on a Budget

I am all about eclectic, bargain art, whether that be searching for unique paintings on eBay, strolling through flea markets and antique fairs, or finding little shops on holiday. I love that a home can become a beautifully curated, and very unique art gallery. Personally, I like to arrange our […]

My Merry Pomander Oranges

The easiest, most delicious, and most fragrant DIY Christmas decoration: pomander oranges. I make them every year, they are my favourite handmade decorations and are so nostalgic; they bring back many happy memories of past Christmas holidays spent with family. I like to pierce the orange with a toothpick or […]

My favourite Festive tradition: Mulled wine

As soon as the tree is up, I make my first batch of mulled wine. Even when we lived in Los Angeles, I would find the ingredients and serve it to friends who had never heard of it before. The aroma of sliced oranges, cloves, cinnamon and red wine is […]

What’s not to love?  Working from the warm mustard and honey tones […]

Make Breakfast Pretty! My Homemade Granola

Setting the table at Lord Beaverbrook’s magnificent country house really took me on a walk through history. From gorgeous gardens to stone pavilions dotted around the grounds, there is an abundance of inspiration to be found here. Nevertheless, it was the shell-encrusted grotto by Belinda Eade that captured me the most and was the inspiration for Sharland England’s Autumn tablescape. It’s quite magical! The grotto […]

Terracotta Table Love

Balmy evenings, fresh drinks, good company and terracotta-toned tablescapes for me this summer! I’ve always adored warm browns and terracotta tones.
