Sometimes, when I'm in need of some interior inspiration I go straight to 1st Option Locations as their properties are to absolutely die for. But when I last looked, I was just over the moon the find this beautiful house which I read about in Living etc earlier this year. At that time, I tore these pictures out for my scrap book (and stuffed them under my husbands nose to say 'this is the kitchen I want') but I'm absolutely thrilled to see that 1st Option provide so many wonderful images showing this kitchen from all angles. Its so beautifully finished and I love the deep green/ blue cabinets against the white panelling too. Amazing! Its naughty to steal someones look but hey - who's gonna know? ;-) Enjoy!

The one thing I love about my husband and I renovating our holiday cottage, is that I’m allowed to spend a ridiculous amount of time on the internet searching for other inspirational holiday accommodation around the country. I love everything about ‘getting away’ and I’d rather spend my very last penny on a beautiful hotel room than on a designer handbag, that’s for sure! So in my recent quest for beautiful accommodation, I came across these wonderful cottages at Upcott Farm. How dreamy? I would just love an excuse to holiday here and as it’s not so far away…maybe it could be a great meeting place for future get togethers with friends. I love everything about these cottages, and I’d oh so love to live in a completely white house. But sometimes, I feel so stuck between living in a completely colourful home, and one that’s just as these are. Serene, soft and oh so calm. Is there a balance somewhere in between? Hopefully I’m trying to achieve that with our home, which by the way, is so close to being finished. I can’t wait to share it with you. Take care, and have a wonderful weekend. x

I went into the most delightful store yesterday in the coastal town of Fowey, Cornwall. How lovely it is to see such wonderful brands in Cornwall, some being my favourites such as Falcon Enamelware and Hooper and Shaw prints...I think I even spied some delights from Fog Linen Works too! The store has been fitted out so beautifully, and that's all down to the incredibly talented duo at Millard&Flo. I can't wait to go again, maybe I could use our visiting friends as an excuse! I can see it now, ' oooh...have you been to Fowey before? We just have to go....' hehe.
