more craftiness.

I've once again been working with the lovely team over at Fabulous magazine - but this time on a craft feature. I made 7 hacks and you can find the step by step guides on how to make each of them in the magazine which is out today - so grab yourself a copy!
Here are some pictures of the finished hacks - a copper magazine rack, painted brick planters, concrete side tables or stools, wooden clock

getting cosy.

The new year has brought some new clients and I have recently styled a shoot for sofa.com which I am excited to see that two of the images are up of their website. The shoot took place at gorgeous location house just outside of London and to top it off they had an adorable puppy called Hector - although he was a Great Dane so he was taller than me!

lighting for the studio.

We are moving house... hopefully quite soon... all in limbo land at the moment... but I can't help getting excited about the potential house and having a studio space all to myself! One of the things that I have neglected in my current working space is good lighting - I just stumble on through the evening with just the light from my laptop. Things need to change so I am on the hunt for a nice desk lamp... I've been looking into it and found these lovely desk lights or hanging lights that I could create a hook and have a pendant at the side of my desk... decisions decisions!

craft corner.

Lately I have been doing a lot of craft shoots. I love making all the different items - although not so sure Garth is too happy when he comes home to find me mixing concrete in the living room, or spraying furniture in the hallway... oh well! hehe. I've now done quite a few craft videos for house to home - they are great fun to make and I am sure this time next year I will be a millionaire if I sent all the outtakes off to You've Been Framed! Here are a couple that I have done but you can find more on the housetohome website.

tuesday treasures

I have just discovered Tiffany Mitchell, an illustrator based in Lexington, Kentucky. These illustrations are gorgeous - what a talented lady! I want all three to display on my wall. You can purchase them from http://shopruche.com - these are definitely going on my wish list.

ideal home.

Sorry for the absence from my blog - things have been a little hectic lately. I wanted to share some of my latest work for Ideal Home magazine with you. Quite a variety of colours and styles - even managed to squeeze in some of my photographs from my year away travelling!

write a note.

These days all I seem to get in the post are bills! Wouldn't it be nice to receive a letter.. far better than an email. I've found these beautiful cards by Michoucas Design which I would love to receive! I would even probably frame it! Check out the website for more designs.

coastal living.

I am working on my next coastal shoot and thought I would share some of my inspiration. I am getting very jealous of all these beautiful homes in the sun! I love the anchor wallpaper and rope accessories.

a room for a little one.

A friend of mine has asked for some help in decorating their kids bedroom. I think the key to a well decorated childs bedroom is making sure it is bright and cheery with an element of surprise. This half moon wallpaper would work well as a backdrop to then layer on some colourful accessories. Painted furniture and colourful pictures would sit nicely in front of this monochrome paper. Here are a few other pictures for inspiration.

baked by the sea.

Just recently I did a shoot for a new cake and scone company based in Hastings. It was a great day shooting with photographer Neal Grundy - we got some lovely shots and ate some delicious cakes!
