A grand design for a child’s bedroom – project flashback

Sometimes you have to stop and look back at what you’ve achieved, when working as an interior designer (just as in many industries). Those little Instagram memory reminders stopped me in my tracks this morning as it popped up with the wonderfully playful project I worked on for Grand Designs Live back in 2018. This […]

I’ve found a milkman – AD

Over the last month I’ve been trialling the milk (and more) delivery service from McQueens Dairies. For quite some time I’ve been trying to find a way to make sustainable changes to all of the plastic we acquire from milk, especially since having our son which has more than doubled the amount we purchase. I’m […]

Interior Design Project – Barbers Shop

This industrial barbers shop project was one of the first commercial projects I took on and remains one of my favourites. The inspiration for the design came from 90s factory conversions that paired industrial features with bold uses of primary colours. The space was a shell when we took it on, a shop unit in […]

Sustainable camping kit…

I think this long hot summer has effected me a little as on Monday evening Mr LMH & I decided it would be a great idea to invest in a tent (an actual tent that you sleep in, not just a cute kids teepee for the garden). I’ve not been camping since I was in […]

Trick Or Treat

Yesterday we (my sister, Jasper & I) went pumpkin picking at Farmer Copley’s, if you’re in or around Yorkshire it’s a great day out…just remember your wellies! What do you think of my pickings ^^^ I came home feeling rather excited for Halloween, it’s not normally my favourite holiday, so I thought I’d put together […]

Upcycler turned Party Planner

I went into planning Jasper’s first birthday party as a complete novice (as I’m sure many first time parents do) having attended the grand number of 3 kids parties in my adult life. I’m happy to report that things went smoothly and we had the perfect afternoon with family and friends, thanks to Pinterest and […]

Well done Team GB…

…and of course team Yorkshire (who would have finished 17th on the medals table if it were a country) #proudyorkshirelass How amazing to finish 2nd ey? I don’t think there is anyone you could speak to up or down our little country that isn’t proud of our talented team of athletes, I’m even considering purchasing […]

Turtle Bay York

I’ve never done a review of a specific place before but thought I’d start sharing some places with amazing decor with you this year, starting with Turtle Bay. This was our first visit to a Turtle Bay restaurant and I was seriously impressed (I’m always a little sceptical about restaurant chains, I wonder if they […]

Something a little different this Fathers Day…

Fathers Day is fast approaching and the same old main stream gifts are appearing all over the place, whilst all dads need socks I thought it might be worth a little post with some more unusual ideas some from Little Mill House and some tasty edible gifts from some British independents. What’s Dad’s tipple? Is […]
