Easter Style Guide: AA x Entertaining

  Anyone following the blog yesterday will have noticed that we’re holding a SAMPLE SALE this Saturday. We’re making room for lots of new things and tidying up in the process. You’ll find many one off pieces from my pad (blue chairs/old teal desk/zebra rug and quite a few other things) plus all sorts of […]

FAVOURITE DINING ROOMS OF 2016

I adore dining rooms, even as I know they’re going out of fashion. You might not be able to set aside a whole room, but like moi you may have carved out a dining zone in an open plan space, or even just want to create a little nook in the...

QUICK SEASONAL UPDATES FOR YOUR DINING ROOM

I’m writing this at break neck speed since its just past 6am and I should be in the store by now – walking through, checking, vm-ing yadda yadda yadda. It was  a bad night, the M’s were taking up so much room – ie sleeping horizontally that I had the worst...

THE SECRET TO CHIC DINING ROOMS

Here’s some tricks I’ve learned that will instantly elevate dining rooms. Or in fact, the main table you eat at – whether that’s tucked away in the kitchen, living room or wherever. Do people have dining rooms anymore? I’m not sure, I don’t know. (Let me know if you do –...

MASTERING MIXING & MATCHING CHAIRS

Like any eclectic decorating styles, mismatched chairs are a tricky look to pull off, but do it right and something magical happens! It adds oodles of personality and visual interest to a space, stops it being too “cookie cutter” or decorating by numbers, and makes your dining room uniquely yours....

HOW TO STYLE YOUR DINING ROOM FROM SCRATCH

Dining rooms can be quite tricky to get right, and a bit overwhelming if you’re starting from scratch! But as I told MyDomaine recently, it’s all about creating an inviting, laid-back glam atmosphere. The sort of place you’re happy to linger into the wee small hours with good friends and good...

DINING WITH ART & SOUL

Dining rooms are a bit of a dying breed, but whether you’ve got a separate dining room (lucky you!) or just a table snuck into an open-plan space the same rules apply. The dining area more than anywhere else is the place to create drama, glamour and a really cool atmosphere. No...

WHY THIS WORKS: RAW MATERIALS

I’m pretty obsessed with somewhat rougher, cheaper materials at the moment and how to make them look luxe. Corrugated iron, concrete, worn leather and plywood look achingly cool but also low-key glam in this dining room. It doesn’t need the finest marbles and damask to make a statement, which is always good news...

WHY THIS WORKS: COSY CABIN

I’m a big fan of this look and all things rustic, ski lodge, cabin inspired! Feels such a perfect meld of casual with luxury, particularly this time of year when it’s getting darker and chillier by the day. The most important element to nailing this look is something that is so...

Ways to wake up your dining room

Aren’t weekends meant for pottering, relaxing, chilling out? I am exhausted after this last one, we’ve been working on the cabin at the end of the garden and I’m beginning to wonder why I thought it was such a good idea in the first place to buy the thing. Admittedly I have time issues thinking...

How to create a home bar

I love having a little drinks nook tucked away somewhere – whether it’s a retro drinks trolley, or just a collection of cool bottles stashed on a tray. With a bar at hand, you can instantly transform your home into a sophisticated soiree anytime. And it’s also perfect for after...

DINING CHAIRS: MIX OR MATCH?

Should dining chairs match or every one of them be different? Here is your ultimate guide!

DINING ROOM ESSENTIALS

Dining rooms can be quite hard to get right. All those extra large supersized tables can look fab when a big group of friends are gathered round but feel overbearing  and a little cold when not. Even smaller tables can feel rather sad when left alone. Fear not however because I have some tricks...

Conversation worthy dining rooms

Is it me or are people’s dining rooms generally dull? Big table, matching chairs, some sort of (usually undersized) pendant in the middle and that’s pretty much it! Years ago I went to a friend’s house who had exactly that set-up (except swap out the pendant for a whole load...

DOWN WITH DOUR DINING ROOMS

Yesterday got up early penned a post on dining rooms, pressed publish or so I thought carried on my day only to find I hadn’t published at all so I’m attempting it again. No I don’t have a document outlining all my posts for the week, I get up drink...

DINING IN STYLE

Morning, hope you guys had a good weekend, mine not so good not sure why nothing really fell into place for some reason. Coupled with a dull aching head the whole weekend and a visit to supposedly the best place in London to eat brunch and have coffee (WRONG) it...
