HOW TO MAKE YOUR GARDEN COOL!

Gardens are often perceived as quite hard to get right. We spend time and money on the inside where there are oodles of inspiration from blogs to mags to TV programmes but when it comes to outside we are all at sea! I should know, I neglected mine for a good 10 years before it really started to bug me. The inside looked beautiful but the outside looked so boring! Here are some tips that have turned my garden around, oh and I should say that I brought the same principles inside as I did out!

MY QUICK GARDEN TRANSFORMATIONS

In my garden I’ve created lots of little zones with seating nooks, a fireplace and an outdoor kitchen on the patio. I’ve tried to create a magical effect of fairytale woods-meets-jungle style! It honestly hasn’t taken zillions of bucks or years of landscaping to achieve thought. I’m the most inpatient...

WINTER GARDENS

Today I wanted to talk gardens, might sound strange as we’re rapidly coming into winter. But stay with me because a garden, balcony or window box should give us year round pleasure I reckon. What’s more this is the perfect time for armchair gardening – dreaming, plotting, planning what you can plant...

MAKING THE MOST OF A SMALL GARDEN

If you follow me on social media you’ll know that last month my little garden made the front cover of Gardens Illustrated – super flattered about that.

CREATING ROOMS OUTDOORS

As you guys probably know already I have an outdoor WWOO kitchen with which I am obsessed. I had no idea how transformative this would be – a grill and a pair of tongs did me fine for years – except when the kitchen was installed it changed everything. I now grill...

HOW TO THROW THE PERFECT SUMMER SOIREE

I love summer; doors flung open, M’s pottering in and out, and the scent of the lilac and soon to be flowering jasmine perfuming the air. Nice! Talking of which nothing beats throwing a garden party on a balmy night. I have just added one of our new sofas to my...

MY LOW-MAINTENANCE GARDENING TIPS

When I first moved into this pad I pulled all the old plants out bar a beautiful old lilac tree. Not being green fingered I pebbled the whole lawn planted a row of bamboo down one section and jasmine the other and called it a day. That was in my minimal...

Lighten up your outdoor space

Outdoors spaces can be tricky to get right. If you’re not naturally green thumbed it feels really overwhelming sometimes to create gardens and yards that we’ll love and enjoy spending time in just as much as indoors. I’m no gardener, so for me the trick has always been to style it up...

Working your styling skills outside

Tips for creating the coolest outdoor spaces

Amp up your front of house!

Question why is it we spend ages figuring out the best paint palette for inside and yet we totally forget or neglect the outside. We just go with the flow -ubiquitous white or cream or something super wishy washy! AND YET if you want your home to convey your super...

Pottering in the garden

I went a little crazy over the weekend taking shots of our garden and with the Chelsea Flower Show starting today, I’ve got gardens on my mind! In the pics above you can see our terrace, outdoor kitchen area and a peak through to the dutch oven. Good for making all...
