Greenwich Peninsula, an island of opportunity

Around twenty years ago, at the start of my career, I was working at The Sunday Telegraph. We were housed in The Tower, One Canada square in Canary Wharf. The view from the 11th floor stretched out over a vast empty industrial area and the construction of The Dome (that’s the O2 to you young-uns!)…

Picnic fun in the garden

With school officially out here at Little House, we’re busy making plans for the summer holidays. Garden fun is always top of the list, we love our little city garden and treat it as another ‘room’ in the summer months. Marks & Spencer recently got in touch to see if I wanted to feature* some…

A love of Vintage

My first up-cycle

This little vintage table had been in my possession for many years but was very much in need of some love.¬† I decided to paint it to match my dresser that had been lovingly renovated and treated with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey. According to the instructions there was no sanding required. I…
