In May 2020 our little thatched cottage was featured in Period Living Magazine. It was the culmination of 7 years of creating a family home with my “effortless rural style” – I have taken this as a positive comment on my interior design style rather than a reference to the lack of housekeeping, muddy wellies and occasional strange smell and have created a website to write about interiors, gardening, recipes and country living.
I decided that we are all stuck at home and maybe possibly need to look at lovely things and try and raise a smile. I write daily posts on Instagram that are also available here to the right of the front page about our life in the countryside in a slightly dilapidated but much loved thatched cottage. Every Sunday I will be exploring what makes “An English Country Cottage” along with a weekly Pantry Recipe on a Wednesday from the super talented Lucy @lucyhoylecooks and a weekly Friday cutting garden feature written by the lovely Karen who runs a floristry pop up “FlowersandlifestylebyMargot”.
I hope that maybe you can lose yourself for a couple of minutes with a nice cup of tea and a read (or possibly a gin if you have been home schooling like me).
