Firstly before we begin can we give my husband a big round of applause for coming up with this title! So as you know I do love a bit of Orla Kiely. It’s odd as I don’t usually go for reproduction things especially in the home, but there is something about her prints that warms […] Read more…

This is my favourite thing in my Christmas digital book, Style Your Vintage Party – Christmas. This is so simple too as all you need is a glue gun!

A Flat Pack Backlash: Choose Vintage Furniture!

I wrote this article for Vintage Life magazine many moons ago and it still feels relevant today. Don’t get me wrong, I love stores like IKEA especially some of their reproductions of their original designs form the 1950s and 1960s but there is just something wonderful about the craftmanship in vintage furniture. Time for a […] Read more…

5 ways to give your home a vintage autumn feel

Even though it has been warm of late, you can still feel autumn in the air. The misty mornings, all those cobwebs that I keep walking into and the yearly obsession with finding conkers has arrived, as has the need to put the heating on at night. For me, it is time to cosy up […] Read more…

Turning Back the Vintage Clocks this Autumn

Remember that feeling of when, as a child you started the new year at school? Full of anticipation with shiny new shoes and a packed pencil case, full of tales of a glorious summer holiday in 6 weeks of hot sun. Well now is the time to feel that optimism again.
