Our bedroom Spring update in France

May 4, 2017

Stylish bedroom update with a new printAs soon as I recovered from the low blood pressure that hit me recently and let me with very little energy for three weeks, I tackled all the things I wanted to do during Mila‘s school holidays.

After spending quite a bit of time in bed resting, I wanted to give our bedroom a new, fresh look for Spring so I finally unpacked the new stonewashed linen in pure white I got during my last trip in London. You can’t beat white for a fresh look, can you!!? READ MORE...

Vispring x Missoni collaboration

April 20, 2017

Vispring x Missoni collaborationDuring my last trip to London, I spent one night in the quintessentially English Elephant Hotel in Pangbourne (Berkshire) and one in The Sanderson boutique hotel.

One thing we are looking at revamping is our Ikea kitchen which I have to admit has not aged.
Ten years on and the units are still looking very white and have not faded despite the huge amount of natural light filling the room.
However, what has changed is our cooking habits (well mine mostly…). I started cooking which made me realise that there is actually not enough workspace to prepare the food when the two of us are in the kitchen + Steve finds it very antisocial to have his back turned to our guests when he is cooking.
Added to the obvious lack of storage, there is quite a few things we could make right the second time around.
