Living room edit

Living room edit

Here is an edit of some of my favourite bits from our living room, lots of which we had in our previous house and a few key new bits which we fell in love with. I did the Create Academy course with Rita Koning and one of the many useful tips she shared was that - unless you are significantly downsizing of course - you should take all of your furniture with you to your new house. It is better to have a table for your drink, even if it isn't perfect, rather than to have no table at all. The Ikea bedside table below had been sitting in our loft for years and we bought it to the new house on the off chance there might be a home for it and, there it now sits next to the armchair. We might get a new one at some point but for now it is great to have somewhere to put that glass of wine.

10 reasons to visit Margate

10 reasons to visit Margate

We fancied a little UK break for a few nights and after a bit of research we came across Margate as an option and it really did not disappoint. About 2 hours from us in Brighton - it had a similar feel about it. A very bohemian, arty heart with udons of independent cafes, shops and restaurants - and a sandy beach. The weather was even kind to us and the sun shone for most of the time we were there. A big bonus for a UK break - especially in March!If you still aren’t sure whether Margate is for you – here are 10 reasons why you should book a trip now.
