Colour crush ~ BLUE

After a recent holiday to Crete, I’m crushing on blue BIG time. Walking the pretty streets of the most quaint little fishing village we discovered, Plaka, was like being in a movie set. Baby blue, teal, cornflower, turquoise, aqua call them what you will, shades of blue are sure to make you feel relaxed and…

LET THERE BE LIGHT with Vario by Velux | ad*

Have you ever thought about just how much time you spend indoors? Last week, I attended a breakfast hosted by Velux, where we were challenged to think about this fact in depth. The event was held to create awareness about an exciting new launch, Vario by Velux, the brand’s first made-to-order rooflight solution for flat roofs.

Keeping Plant Care Easy This Summer ~ with Homebase | ad*

Last weekend we took a much needed trip to our local garden centre in preparation for a good-old garden/plant overhaul. We are very lucky to live just a few miles away from our nearest Homebase store. In the 19 years we’ve lived in our home, it’s been our go-to shop for all things gardening and DIY….

Christmas makeover with Marks & Spencer

For me, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without Marks & Spencer. I mean, is it even December if you haven’t browsed the festive isles of this go-to store picking up treats and decorations ready for the big day!? I’ve given my living room a makeover with some fabulous *items from M&S. This year I’ve gone with a…

Christmas with Hobbycraft

When my daughter Ava asked me if we could buy some air drying clay to make some Christmas decorations, my heart did a little happy whoop. Memories of pottery at school came flooding back, after a quick browse of our go-to craft supplier Hobbycraft, we were set to go with our chosen project. Air drying…

Getting cosy with Baa Stool

Say hello to the newest addition at Little House In London, my sheepskin dressing table stool of dreams, Ffleur. Isn’t she just lovely? She comes in 18 different colour ways, I have chosen this stunning teal. I sat on her for about an hour when she first arrived. I mean, I couldn’t have been more comfy,…

Get Your Hygge On This Autumn

This Autumn, you will mostly find me padding around in fluffy slippers, lighting evocative scented candles, switching on ALL the twinkly fairy lights and generally revelling in the most cosiest of seasons. Last year, I discovered (along with the rest of Instagram) the phenomenon that is Hygge. Pronounced ‘hoo-ga’, it’s a Danish and Norwegian word…

The Power of Yellow

Someone once told me, that if you look at the colour yellow for more than 10 seconds it makes you smile. Why not try it with this square below… worked for me! How about you? In the natural world, yellow is the colour of sunflowers and daffodils, lemons and bananas, canaries and bees. And let’s…

BBQ Days

Having just returned from a beautiful sunny week away in Cornwall, we’re keen to keep the holiday vibes going for as long as possible here at Little House. The hubster (Alex) had been very eager to BBQ a (huge) Ribeye Tomahawk Steak, so after said piece of meat was in the bag from our local butchers,…

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…
