Snippets from Summer

Here's a few shots of from our holiday in Cornwall.

We were very lucky with the weather, it had been miserable for weeks but we had blue skies for the entirety!

A beautiful cove outside of Newquay called Lusty Glaze!

We stayed at a uber child friendly hotel called Sands just outside of Newquay. I had been so worried about the weather I wanted somewhere with things for kids to do just in case. It's a friendly, welcoming, great value hotel with loads of facilities and can see why it's won it's many tripadvisor awards. Their outside space for kids was amazing with zipwires, bouncy castle, swimming pool, tennis courts etc.

We've decided though that next time we want to try the Watergate Bay Hotel a few further miles up the coast. It's had a major revamp and the new decor is gorgeous - fun and fresh with lots of bold striped wallpaper, floor boards and a hit of nautical. I think it gets the balance of child friendly and chic just right.

It's right on the beach at Watergate Bay (obvs!) and across the road from Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant where we had an amazing dinner one night watching the surfers until it grew dark.

We loved it and will definitely be back next year, fingers crossed the weather is kind to us again!

E Design - Room Service!

Well after a wonderful, family focused summer the kiddies are finally back at school and pre-school so I have a few tender, precious hours to myself each day!


I've decided I'd like to give some more time to my interior design, building up slowly but still being around for the boys.


So I'm now offering 'Room Service' an E - Design service! I've been doing this for a few clients and friends who don't live near me and I'm pleased to say it's worked really well.



The hardest part of redecorating for a lot of people is working out what they really want and envisaging it in their own space. This is where E-Design is perfect as I work with you to really find out what it is that you want, bring it to life and then you can go do it with no pressure and enjoy the process! I'm really excited about it I can help you out with either:


- Inspiration Consultation: a listening and advising service, culminating in a tailored personalised moodboard, setting out the colours and feel of your room for you to go forward and create or...


- Room Service: a full e-design 'room' service where, after consultation, I create a moodboard, a pininterest board just for your project, floor plan and action plan with lists of suppliers and helpful tips to create your dream room.





To get the ball rolling and to make sure this can be available to all I'm offering these at a very special price just for this month - just £20 for the Inspiration Consultation and £40 for Room Service!
