Becoming a sole homeowner around this time last year has had a massive influence on my interior style choices for 2017. I’m now totally free to make every single design, decor and furniture decision myself and little by little (on a modest monthly budget) I am transforming my house into the cosy living space I’ve always wanted. When I visited the Graham and Brown House of Wallpaper Pop Up recently (catch my post on it here if you missed it) we chatted about how my home revamp was going and what trends have inspired me in 2017.

After what has seemed like the longest Spring in history, (Summer – where were you?!) Autumn has finally arrived and I for one couldn’t be happier about it. Admittedly it’s a bit rubbish having to get up for work in the dark and it being pot luck as to whether my freshly blowdried hair will survive more than 30 seconds outside, but that can be forgiven because it’s such a cosy, comforting, laid back season. In Autumn it’s perfectly acceptable to put rest and relaxation first. You can go home and get straight into your comfiest, cosiest pjs if you…
