Long summer days in here β˜€οΈ one can but dream, on a morning that feels more like winter ❄️ Today I'm excited to be heading over to shoot with @design_soda_ruthie today - I love it when I get to meet another lovely creative IG buddy (and her home) in real life!

A splash of joyful colour to start the week. Hope you all have a good one πŸ’•

Simple pleasures. Handfuls of freshly picked mint: in a pot of herbal tea, added to a salad or a springtime risotto. Or just crushed between my fingertips. (In other news I am feeling a little fragile this morning after a lovely night with friends that went on into the small hours. Gently picking a handful of mint might be all I can manage this morning!). Enjoy your Sunday, my friends 🌿

Happy weekend 🌿

We've decorated the new den on a shoestring, foraging, finding and repurposing. Pallets, old futons and sofa cushions, coffee sacks from the car boot sale, and an Ikea toothbrush holder sprayed in copper to make a vase. (Trying out the gallery feature for the first time to show you what it looked like in here last summer - after a whole day of clearing!).

Do you know that dream where you discover a whole new room in your house you'd never realised was there? Well that's how I feel about this gem of a summerhouse in my garden! It was there when we moved in, and for ten years it was crammed with toys, tools and goodness-knows-what junk (and two rabbits!). And then last year I was thinking about how we could make changes to the way we use the space in our house now the kids are getting so much bigger, and it dawned on me that right here in the garden is the perfect extra space we need - for teens to hang out in, for sleepovers, for quiet time away from a noisy house during the day, for family nights with the fire-pit, for late summer nights with friends over a bottle or two... And now, here it is, all painted and cosy and ready to go, barring a cushion cover or two. Happy days!

Shadow play 🌿

So here's my contribution to the #wisteriahysteria that is filling our feeds with gorgeousness right now. I can't offer you pastel-painted facades laced with purple blooms - but here you have my one and only, first ever wisteria flower (look closely, bottom centre). It's all about the little things, you know πŸ˜‰πŸ’œ

A beautiful space to wake up in, at Soho Farmhouse last week. And it's yet another gorgeous sunny morning today. Doesn't that make the return to early starts just a little bit easier?

I want to fill every frame with flowers right now 🌸

Mint green, with a wicker basket and a bell. Bicycle goals right here πŸ’š

The scent of lilacs. Happy Easter, all β™‘
