childhood memoeries.

Do you remember having one of those cardboard dolls that you could dress up and fold the tabs over to keep the clothes on her? I loved it... and now here is a modern day version created by Love Mae. They have loads of other stickers for children to get creative with - check out the website.

house story.

A home that I styled for Ideal Home has recently been featured on the house to home website as the Editors choice of home stories. I worked with the wonderful photographer Heather Hobhouse to shoot this Edwardian terraced house, which was beautifully decorated with soft colours and furniture creating a light and airy home. It was a fun day and Oliver even let me have some of his sweets!

setting a scene.

I adore this project by photographer Christoper Patrick Ernst. He has traveled all over the world to find establishments that have used scenic wallpaper - I love the combinations created and the contrasts between the furniture and wallpaper. To make it even better I and am so pleased to hear that these places do really exist so you can visit them if you want!
