I started this blog five years ago when I was on maternity leave with my son. It started off a scrapbook of ideas and articles about places that I found inspirational. Historic buildings, classy furnishings, exquisite fabrics – there is so much beauty around us and I wanted to find a way to keep my memories documented.
Every day I would go to a different place. I visited castles, admiring furniture, fabrics, patterns and textures. I looked at grand country houses and their beautiful grounds getting ideas that could transfer to modern day homes.
Little did I know, that this blog would become such a big part of my life and help me meet the most amazing people along the way. I have travelled to bloggers conferences and wrote guest articles for publications that I enjoyed reading for years. I met brilliant designers that work on projects I could only dream of and photographers that pick up quirky and unusual detail in any setting.
A couple of years ago I started helping my friends, giving them ideas on what they can change in their homes to make them more practical and beautiful and gradually started taking on projects for other clients. My portfolio is not huge, but I am very proud of each and every home I have worked in.
When I work on a project, I don’t just work on individual rooms. I view your house as a whole, together with the outside areas, garden, hallways. My aim is to improve the visual appearance, create a cohesive design throughout, but also create practical storage spaces that a lot of modern houses lack. Hidden cupboards, cabinets and shelves are often very easy to add, but they are invaluable for storing toys, clothes, cleaning supplies or anything else you might want to store away.
I do not charge high fees and put in all my time and effort when I work for you. If you have a project in mind that you think I could help you with, do get in touch.
