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.

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.

Colour starts creeping back into the garden, the nights get longer, the day gets brighter, the clouds occasionally lift long enough to take your coat off and expose your ankles. For me, it is the seasonal equivalent to a Friday. You still have the whole season ahead to look [...]
One of my favourite Christmas traditions as a child was waking up (ludicrously early) on Christmas morning, frantically finding my stocking at the bottom of the bed and running upstairs to my sisters room. We would then sit in her bed under the duvet and open our stocking presents, one at a time. We usually [...]
