Take a look at my makeover of a summerhouse for some me time! A little rustic hideaway for me to drink my champagne and read a book.
Maybe you might like to read my book from shed to chic available now on my website and Amazon.
In this room featured in 25 Beautiful Homes Magazine. I have used Farrow & Ball French grey on the walls this is one of my all time favourite colours from Farrow & Ball especially in Period properties because it gives that real depth to a room with changing light coming in shadows reflecting back. As the day goes on the colour changes, which creates a moody room for the evening, which lets face it who wouldn't want to relax in.
This beautiful victorian pine cabinet was hidden in an upstairs bedroom. I stripped it years ago when it was in to strip everything made out of wood, but had a moment last weekend and convinced my daughter to help me drag it downstairs to transform. Painted in Farrow & Ball.
See what I do to transform it.

Having been interviewed last month to appear in Living Magazine Homes and Gardens Magazine May 2022 issue I can now present the article written by Mike Crutchly it goes in to the dos and dents of designing your home with lots of great tips I have shared.
Adding interest in a garden
Who doesn't love a bit of interest in the garden something to watch a little weekend project? I debated for some time weather to put these in a row or random because I like things lined up in threes.
Get the Look
I bought these simple bird houses from home bargains they were only £3.99 in blue or green I would stick to three of the same colour, obviously if your building is very long use 4 o5 to create impact for a fraction of the cost of other bird house. Be prepared though they don’t last forever I bought one around 2 years ago and the roof started coming off I just nailed it on, so feel free to choose something more substantial like the following.
Multi Award Winning Interior Designer Kerrie Griffin shows us how you can turn an old shed or stables in this case into accomodation.
Initially, this was a stable block that cost £2500 I brought the roof overlay out and built it down to create a rectangle giving more space inside. I removed the partitions and the stables doors and fitted with some factory seconds klober doors heavily reduced a few years ago, but then stopped the project due to personal circumstances.
Plasterboard £7 plus vat per sheet needed 7
Plasterboard fitter £170 inc 2 sheets of plasterboard
Shed ordered Robert dyers for £400
Flooring decided to paint took 30 litres about £55
Paint walls ceiling lining paper first foam, filler tape and paint £70
Paint sprayer £53.99 was £59.99
Cushions and accessories £350
My time is about 9 days working long hours.
Pinterest - What Is this and how can it help me design my home?
I use pinterest a lot in all my businesses and personal life, From pinning a top look to give me inspiration or getting an idea of something to paint. DIY projects to cooking all can be found on pinterest. Its a Visual way of seeing all your ideas together, you can split them down into categories just let your creative side flow.
A lot of people don't know what it is or haven't found this fabulous tool for pulling all your ideas together, I call it my giant pin board, treat it like this and you will quickly get the picture.
