My Bedroom

Welcome to my bedroom, my oasis of calm in my topsy turvey socially awkward roller coaster of a ride. Once bland and dreary I transformed it on a budget into a dark and glam interior space with a gothic revival undertone.

Dark bedrooms are not for everyone but for me it centres me. Cocoons me even. It is my space to relax and I never tire of seeing it. Share the journey of it’s transformation with me as I slowly add to it. Ever, as always refining it.

I set out to design a scheme for the room on an as always (yes, you guessed it) own brand lemonade budget. Here’s my bedroom revamp! Continue Reading…

Mad About The House

Gold Fireplace

I am absolutely over the moon to be feature on Mad About The House in the weekly feature of ‘10 Beautiful Rooms‘. In fact Kate Watson-Smyth was very kind to feature not one room of mine but two! Kate is one of my all time Interior Blog hero’s. Not only does she write beautifully. But she inspires me too having set up her Blog at around the same age as I am now. It’s sometimes hard to start over, create a new beginning in life when you’re ahem, the wrong side of 40! But Kate has gone from strength to strength and it gives me hope that I’m actually going somewhere with this little old blog of mine.  Continue Reading…
