The Versatile Stool

I hope you’ve all enjoyed the Easter bank holiday weekend albeit a wet and soggy one. At least there’s been chocolate to distract from the weather. Today’s post is shorter than usual as I’ve woken with a dreaded sinus infection, but hopefully, it’s a useful one as you may have overlooked a small piece of furniture that is actually very versatile for your homes.   The Versatile Stool If there’s one piece of furniture to consider for your homes it has…

The Great Faux Plant Home Trend

March 30, 2018

There’s no getting away from the fact that we are embracing mother nature in our homes more than ever, especially when it comes to our love affair with houseplants. However, even I admit that sometimes the odd plant has failed and gone to plant heaven!  At least with faux plants, you remove the guilt factor of becoming a serial plant killer and that can be a wonderful thing in itself.   The Great Faux Plant Home Trend Personally, I see…

Such an elegant, glamorous and luxurious era, I’ve been an admirer of Art Deco for many years. But today we’re not just looking at some fab modern Art Deco style…

Affordable, Versatile & Stylish Flooring – Vinyl Is King

Affordable, Versatile & Stylish Flooring - Vinyl Is King

Looking at alternatives that are easier on the pocket, especially when you’re starting out or on a budget, can be your only choice in the matter. What’s great today compared to when I bought my first flat 26ish years ago is that going cheaper doesn’t necessarily mean you have to lack on style either.

100 YEARS OF ITALIAN DESIGN WITH HEALS

  Like many of you, I’m off on one of our summer breaks, and because time somehow caught up with me, it was either pack or write. The packing won as you’d expect as somehow I don’t the family wouldn’t have appreciated holidaying in their birthday suits.  So from sheer lack of time and unfinished writings, I thought I’d share this post I was asked to write for Heals at the beginning of this year. If you’re a new follower you…
