Now the family and friends have all gone home, the post Christmas home looks like a bomb has dropped. The debris of opened piles of presents and extra bedding are scattered around like Christmas collateral damage. So here’s some inspiration for getting tidy with wacky, wonderful and good looking storage.


Men’s vintage style drawers inspired by old suitcases. Nice quirky touch.


Shelving doesn’t have to be ugly. Look at this delightfully tasteful storage.


Ah! Perfect for all that stationery, miscellaneous bedding, paperwork and other stuff that you don’t want to look at. Ingenious!


Somebody else has an ingenious mind too!


Get tidy. Could be a bit obsessive.


Fruit boxed shoes.


Make the most of ALL your space.


Oh to have a pantry. The most satisfying room to organise.


Glue cool things on the top of jars to make storage more fun. Easy.




Cool garden



We also spent our evenings playing cards, listening to the crickets and eating bread and camembert.



I’m certainly feeling the long hot summer nights. I’ve just been to The South of France in a little town on L’Ardeche river. I spent most of it in a hammock! There’s super cool luxury hammocks and summer seats at HomeSense this week.

“Love-thirty, love-forty, oh! weakness of joy,

The speed of a swallow, the grace of a boy,

With carefullest carelessness, gaily you won,

I am weak from your loveliness, Joan Hunter

Tennis with a difference




Woody does tennis. I love Annie Hall

The summer house oozed nautical style and had a lovely calming effect. The decor was gorgeous so here are some random pics from inside…
