An interior designers weekend in Morocco

Morocco is a feast of inspiration for any creative traveller, from the food to the architecture to the people…it’s a country that whenever I visit I learn so much from. Our most recent visit was for a weekend in late May, we caught the fast ferry across the Gibraltar strait from Tarifa to Tangier. The […]

Home Office space – 3 concepts to recreate now

Strange times, not sure what else I can begin this blog post by saying. I, like everyone else I’ve spoken to, have had days of shock, panic, sadness & then more panic at what has happened here in Europe with the Covid 19 outbreak. I just wanted to say that you are not alone with […]

Creating a pirate bedroom on a budget – Ikea hack!

As anyone who has followed this blog or LMH across social media will know, I LOVE designing kids spaces. Bedroom’s, playrooms, boys, girls IDC I just love making a fun, multi functional space that I know kids are going to love.

I signed up […]

My current wallpaper picks

In the LHM store we have a gorgeous new wallpaper range by Spanish brand Coordonne. If you saw the post on our recent roomset design you’ll have seen we used their Banano paper in the dining room setting. We decided to stock the Anima range in our store as it felt a good fit with […]

Rustic with a touch of gold…

When styling my home with very rustic pieces and lots of grey and white it can sometimes feel a little cold and stark. I need a tiny bit of glamour…that’s where the gold comes in! I avoided gold in my interior for a long time as I was always scared it made a space feel […]

Year of the Rooster

Chinese New Year is always the perfect excuse to pick out some gorgeous oriental inspired interior designs schemes (out of the thousands out there) to showcase. I’m a huge fan of a touch of the orient within a modern rustic design scheme, it adds a feeling of wanderlust to a room which is particularly useful […]
