Home for the weekend

Do not adjust your screens, we haven’t moved to the country! (although, wouldn’t that be nice!?) We’ve not long returned from a beautiful weekend away in Sussex, where we were gifted* the most beautiful stay at the very picturesque Fair Oak Farm. This beautiful 12 acre country estate is set in a protected area of outstanding…

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…

Front Door Makeover

The front door of my little Victorian home has always had many compliments. I’m told it was replaced in the 1930’s due to the design, but I think it fits in perfectly with our period style home. It’s been painted cream (the colour when we bought it 18 years ago) black and slate grey. On my…

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…

Spanish Themed Dinner Party

  Anyone who knows me, will know that I love hosting a dinner party. I really enjoy having friends over to share a bottle a wine, eat some hearty home-cooked food and have a good old catch up. Let’s not forget to add laughter into the mix, and of course some great music playing in the…
