I’m bursting to share the fantastic news that I’ve been included in a list of Top Interior Design Blogs That Rock The Web! I was super-surprised when I received an email earlier this month to let me know that my blog had made the list. And when I scrolled through the other blogs I could see I was in great company with some of my favourite interiors bloggers also in the list, including Victoria from Apartment Number 4 and Claire from PillarBoxBlue. I’m so chuffed to be have made it onto this list and here’s my winners badge wooo!


In this month’s Reclaim magazine I’ve written about an amazing home – one that I’d love to live in myself. It’s the cosy and creative home of Anne Marie Stoltman from Very Me Interiors. As a long-time follower of hers on Instagram, I was so happy when she agreed to be interviewed by me for an interiors feature. She’s shared plenty of photos of her gorgeous home and I can’t wait for you to see it too – grab a copy of Issue 35 of Reclaim magazine (in stores until 21st Feb 2019) or if you miss out you can order the issue online from Select Magazines.


Amazingly enough, two of my rooms have been included in The Home of the Year Awards! My blue bathroom made it into the best bathroom category and my arts and crafts style guest room has also been included in the competition. There was a public vote on Facebook, which closes TODAY, so fingers crossed that my rooms have had enough votes to get through to the judging stage eek!
