Welcome to my new site!
I decided it's high time I designed a proper site where you can find all my news, views and images in one place.
This is where I'll be sharing my obsession with property, my love of all things interior and fab discoveries from the design world, with a few other bits and bobs thrown in for good measure.
I read recently on Holly Becker's Decor8 site that a blog should not only give inspiration to others but also enrich your own life as the author. This resonated with me because these days everything seems to be about who has the most followers or page views or 'likes'.
I blog because I enjoy writing and I have found a subject I am passionate about. Yes, I want to share it with the world but, ultimately, I don't really care if no-one reads it. It is a creative release for me and keeps me motivated and inspired to follow my heart just as reading other blogs does.
The last couple of years have been incredibly difficult for me personally and my blog (among other things!) has suffered accordingly. I lost all my creativity and zest for life: I had no ideas, no inspiration and no desire to write about beautiful things when I just didn't feel like it. Some days just getting up was a struggle. So, I stopped. I didn't fret over losing readers, let's face it, there probably aren't many of you! It's been a long road and a pretty bumpy one at times but I have slowed down, taken stock and, with the help of a few special people, I am on a new path.
This site is part of my new journey, I hope you'll join me along the way...
