• How to choose the right sofa bed

    by  • Tuesday, November 1, 2016 • 3 Comments

    With Christmas looming, it’s time to think about putting up extra guests, especially if it’s a week long staycation at your house! Or you might generally be an ‘open house’ kind of place; with friends and family stopping over all the time. If you don’t have the luxury of a spare room and you’re fed up of dragging that blow up bed out every time, then it might be a good time to consider investing in a sofa bed. With options pretty much endless these days, there’s no need to compromise on style.

    Size up your options:

    There’s no longer a need to limit your sofa bed choice to a small two seater. If you’ve got your sights set on a corner sofa, this smart but seriously sociable corner sofa will seat a large clan for the post Christmas dinner lounging. You’ll just need to roll the overnight guests to one side whilst it transforms into a comfy double sized bed.

    Serve up in style this autumn with 7 gorgeous dinnerware ranges

    by  • Tuesday, October 4, 2016 • 2 Comments

    The dinner table is one of the places that bears the brunt of the changing seasons, as delicate salads are swapped for hearty stews, fresh loaves and sizzling roasts. To cope with the larger load, I love switching up my tableware to match – bid farewell to the soft pastels of summer, this is all about earthy prints, moody colours natural textures. Here are 7 of my favourite ranges available now:autumn-dining-tableware-home-shopping-spy-murmur

    The details: Speckle range, from £4.20 for a bowl, Murmur range, Bedeck

    The style: I love the juxtaposition of the earthy, artisan-style ceramics with the super-smart geometric print. The soothing palette or white, navy and teal makes the range feel relaxed yet sophisticated at the same time.

    It’s that time: here is this month’s hotlist! As usual, it’s just a hodge-podge of all my favourite buys, the pieces I’ve had my eye on and ones I can’t wait to make my own…design-vintage-september-hotlist-ideal-home-home-shopping-spy

    Okay, so I don’t technically need a new stool – but I definitely want one! This little industrial beauty (£98.50, Design Vintage) is literally perfect. It would look amazing in a study, hallway or even as a side table next to a bed or bath. Gorgeous.
