Electric Daisy British Flowers

Why, where and how to buy British flowers

Terrarium DIY Decorator's Notebook

How to make a terrarium

Lime Pickle recipe 5

Weekend Recipe: Tangy Lime Pickle

When I spotted big bowlfuls of limes selling cheaply at the greengrocer around the corner I went a bit over-the-top and bought a huge bagful, more even than we could get through in mojitos and G&Ts (and that’s saying something).

House Tour: a small home with all the world inside

I really love this apartment – not just because it has ALL the features I adore about a global style home (geometric dhurrie, check; indigo dyed cushions, yup; lush house plants, oh yeah) but also because its clever owner has created this eclectic look in a small space and on a tight budget. Let’s see…
