STAY STAY STAY! #storyofmyhome . Now come on any dog owner will tell you that this is the chant you find yourself saying when you’re trying to get a picture of your dog. Not to mention the slice of ham, cube of cheese, bit of digestive biscuit or even a slice of apple. There is a reason that they say never work with children, animals for me as they just never seem to do as they’re told. This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago when I could go mum and dad’s house, but as many of you may have seen from my story I had to drop some papers in the letterbox today. It was then I took the opportunity to take @mrhectormarch home! He is so used to having the other dogs around him from when I lived at home, and while I’m at work so we thought it may be best to have him at my parents. However I couldn’t leave him there when I saw his sad face looking at me through the gate, so baby has come home! It’s a weird feeling when your animal isn’t at home isn’t it? Like when they are still in kennels when you get back from holiday! So Friday night is TV, pasta (just in a small portion as it’s so hard to get hold of still!) and Hector cuddles. What are your wild Friday night plans? 🐕 🍷 . . . . . #myhousethismonth #puglove #walltowallstyle #interiorstyling #myhomethismonth #mystylishspace #myseasonalrevamp #myinteriorvibe #mygorgeousgaff #myhometrend #interiorsnapshot #dailydecordetail #travelphotography #yorklife #interiordesign #mycosyhome #visityorkshire #myspaceanddecor #mycreativeinterior #myperiodhomestyle #beautifulhomesinthenorth #howivintage #mycuratedasthetic #designupnorth #spotlightonmyhome #pugsofinstagram #kitcheninspo

Project switch it up is in progress - slowly but surely all corners of the haus are morphing into isolation life 😬 . The kitchen is our office, the attic is my #DukeEveningSessions studio, the front garden looks like the hill billies have moved in and I’ve just made a new propagation/plant hospital in the living room - all Haus styling is out the window 😆 . It kinda feels real nice to be morphing the house as we are morphing our entire business and personal lives - each little bit feels like an afternoon out 🥰

I brought the outside in by cutting some branches from our Cherry Blossom Tree and now the buds have opened up beautifully. I just wish I could take the inside out! What have you all got planned for the weekend? Oh yes, more of the same...but it’s not so bad. We’ve played family games, my son has been cooking and we’ve done work in the garden. The sun looks set to return for a scorcher on Sunday and that always makes people smile. So carry on staying safe, take small pleasures where you can and appreciate anyone who serves you in a shop, delivers a parcel or is kind to you in any way. Say thank you 💖👏👏 #myhouseismycastle #this creative home #dabblingwithdecor #myperiodinterior #styleitreal #styledabode #dailyhomeshare #myperiodhome #myperiodhomestyle #myfabhome #designupnorth #dailydecordetail #interiorobsessed #walltowallstyle #myhousebeautiful #styledupinterior #myinteriorsquares #glamupnorthinteriors #mygorgeousgaff #cornersofmyhome #periodhome #periodproperty #mydailyhomesquare #idealhome #periodhomesofinsta #realperiodhomes #letterboxhome #nesttoimpress #rockmystylishhome #interiorsMicroinfluencers

It’s all about lists at the moment; lists of home schooling, lists of admin and lists of products yet to set-up (I promise I’ll get these online and share them with you at some point). So, I’ll have a sip of coffee, close my eyes and see which list gets pulled out of the tombola - for those that remain, they can sit pretty in a brick box until the next draw 👍🏻 Have a great Friday everyone and take care 😘 x

Stay stay stay - exactly what we’re doing although my husband did send me out for a run yesterday as I was beginning to lose my mind. Not helped by a stroppy neighbour knocking on the door and asking me to move my car which was parked outside my own house!!! Anyway this school breaks up for Easter today and there will be lots more watching of that black box in the corner. The kids and started The Mandalorian the other day and can’t wait to watch the next one 😊 @storyofmyhome - stay stay stay @hardcastletowers #storyofmyhome #housfolkcollective #livingroom #mylvngrm #scrollstoppinghome #myinteriorsquares #myinteriorvibe #walltowallstyle #myseasonalstyling #periodhomesofinsta #myperiodhomestyle #styleitreal #apartmenttherapy #cornerofmyhome #interiorsupnorth #designupnorth #dailydecordetail #letterboxhome #mygorgeousgaff #sodomino #rockininteriors #colourmyhome #interiorboom #interior123 #mystylishspace #retrohauls #stopandstaredecor #interiorsnapshot #spotlightonmyhome #thiscreativehome

I ate the last chocolate digestive yesterday 😱 (well, the last 3 to be precise), so the highlight today will most definitely be another packet that has obviously been included in this weeks food shop which my sister will kindly leave at the front door.....so if there are any choccy biccy thieves about.....back-off!! 😆 So, go on, hit me with what highlights you have planned for today xxx

In the words of police... Roxanne You don't have to put on the red light. Don't worry this isn't me setting my my own district... however it is the perfect hue if I were to open the curtains. If I were ever to own a salt light I imagine this is the feeling it would evoke. A sense of calm with a touch of sexiness.

How we all doing? Have you had a fabulous groundhog day? Or switched sh*t up a little and mebbies brought a chair in from the dining room into the living room and created yourself a throne for the day or better still made a camp out of the sofa cushions and throws like me and Leo. . . Here's some excitement for you... New angle on the grid and lush new open cage shelving from the fabulous @coxandcox which I ordered on Monday and is now on my wall, pretty good going. Buzzing with the quality of it and the overall look it gives the living room! One day I might be able to show you the whole room but I have a feeling we may be over this nightmare 🤞 before then.

repost @maggiemagoodesigns #maggiemagoodesigns - Yay! My moth tea towels are finally back in stock in my Etsy shop! This design was a big hit at my Christmas fairs, so much that I totally miscalculated my stock levels (the year before the moth design with the white background was the best seller)⠀ Turns out it’s impossible to predict what customers will go mad for!! It’s also available as a print & notebooks

Here is a detail progress shot from a pre Christmas project of the new dado rail and radiator covers being installed in a porch, hallway and landing design for a Victorian property. My client’s brief was to design something timeless, practical and make the space feel brighter, yet still feel warm and welcoming with a neutral backdrop for their collection of artwork. The radiator covers have a cane webbing panel in the centre now and it’s such a lovely space. They told me it now feels like they are walking into a nice hotel! Hopefully when this lockdown is over I can go back and take some proper photos as we had planned. In the meantime I’m still doing designs remotely for my clients and the only difference is we do a video call instead of an initial meeting! I have a home design e-book that I send you beforehand to help you create your design brief, plan your project and measure up without missing the important details. Then you can leave me to do the rest 😉 Get in touch if you want to use this time wisely and make your house look good, feel good and function well too. I have updated my services to breakdown the options. #details #hallwaydesign #dadorail #bts #progessshots #timelessdesign #victorianproperty #artwork #blankcanvas #designupnorth #designforwellbeing

Got up yesterday morning and the eldest one had made his bed, tidied his room and was sitting doing his schoolwork. Didn’t quite know what to say 😀🤓😇 We do seem to have settled into a routine & I’ve decided that during the Easter holidays we’re going to empty the cupboards of all the craft stuff we’ve never used and actually do it 😀 That and the 1000 piece jigsaw should keep us going 😊 It was lovely when the batteries in Joe Wicks’ camera went yesterday and we had to abandon our PE workout.

What art inspires you? I love Kadinsky’s work and I remember visiting the Pompidou in Paris and seeing his work for the first time when I was studying my art foundation course 14 years ago. I love the geometric shapes and colours! So I took a little bit of inspo from his style for my artwork challenge today by incorporating some geometric shapes. I also took a bit of inspo from the cubism movement too. If you want to have a look what I’ve been up to today check out my stories. It was my first time painting since I went college 😳 📷: Kadinsky composition 8 #cubismart #kadinsky #watercolour #isolationcreation #artwork #creativity #arttherapy #apartmentherapy #designupnorth #interiordesigner

A big one being the positivity and support has gone next level which is just what we all need during this time of uncertainty and worry! . . .

My first bit of lockdown creativity. I've been thinking about using this beautiful African wax fabric on this set of 4 G Plan chairs for a long time, and I finally have the time to do it (in between jobs for clients) They are for myself for when I move home later this year, I'm planning to have a totally green and pink apartment 🌸🌿 I've still to do the other 3 but I couldn't wait to show you! . . . #chairfashion #chairmakeover #africanfabric #africanmidcentury #interiordesign #retrostyle #creativeupholstery #upholstery #textiledesign #greenandpink #pinkandgreen #africanfabric #africanmidcentury #upcycledfurniture #dineinstyle #recyclerestyle #howivintage #findmyvintage #cornerofmyhome #eclecticinteriors #designupnorth #creativewomen #myvintagehome #ihavethisthingwithhome @reclaimmag #mcr_creatives @gplandesign

The kitchen at the amazing home of @suzi_saunders. Definitely an industrial feel.... but oh so luxe!

Yesterday I tidied my studio - it felt nice - it was so crazy in there 😂 . Every night this week I’ve been practicing our new event... @dukestudioleeds Evening Sessions - I’ve been practicing lots because it is not in my comfort zone to be in front of a camera but obviously we’ve been thrown into it being the new norm in the last couple of weeks... I think I’m starting to feel a little more ok there now ☺️ . We’re trying to fundraise and having to think of lots of different ways to do so, one of which is the Evening Sessions - armed with a pack of @theschooloflifelondon conversation cards we chat all thing life over a tipple 🙌🏻 the rest you can go see on the @sheafstreet website and there’s lots of fun things to come! . The last two nights I practiced the format with friends and I’ve got another friend roped in for this evening as of this morning! The feedback I’ve consistently gotten is that it feels like a night out at the pub - Hurrah! This is what I was going for 🙌🏻 . The crowdcast platform is really nice and interactive so have had loads of fun with ppl asking questions, ppl wanting to be invited up to talk and asking polls and it turns out that talking about stuff that’s not work is so interesting - I got to find out stuff about @lordwhitney I didn’t know, even though they’re one of my bestest pals 🙌🏻 . On Thursday night I’m going live for the first proper one with not just friends in the audience with @moragmyerscough who is just the most amazing human being - the tickets are £5 with all the ticket sales going to the Freelancers fund and the @trusselltrust foodbank - I know there’s a lot of digital content going down at the moment but I would be so grateful to anyone that buys a ticket- We need to get the funds up so we can help ppl when things start to really get tough! . With Crowdcast you have the option to follow, which would be super amazing if you could, but just to let you know that’s not a ticket so you need to register as an attendee to get access to the content there’s been a little confusion with that 😂https://www.crowdcast.io/creativearistocracy . Hopefully I’ll see some of you over on crowdcast ❤️

Cooey 👋 still here 😃. This beauty of a vase #gifted by @heals Such a lovely shape ⌛️ I shall mostly be filling it with spring blooms and twigs from the garden now 😆 Hope everyone is keeping ok. Any new hobbies? I started yoga. Not the flowing graceful kind yet, more the ooing and grunting as I attempt to sit cross legged on the floor for more than ten seconds.

You ever seen a more fabulous door shot? (Yeah course you have, I have) I've been changing small details like the door handles and light switches to a matt black finish. I'm still waiting for the switches to arrive but you can see how well this colour palette is working together. The contrast between light and dark is striking but it has a softness too which I love. . . . Literally so desp to get this room finished 🙏 I have also purchased a new console table from @outandoutoriginal for the bigger alcove in the dining room, it currently has a grey book case in it which quite frankly I find offensive. . . .

Struggling again today! My Pops dropped off a couple of bits that were surplus to his and mum's needs and it hit me like a ton of bricks and hurt alot! Not being able to have his epic hug and having to stand 2 metres away (from our doorstep) was the most awkward and uncomfortable I've ever felt with my Dad. Think the hurt in his eyes, hurt even more! But we're all in this together and if we do as we're told, we'll get there! 🤞 In random news....you see that bureau? Well, that's Wolf and Loki's loo! I dont like litter trays being scattered about, so we customised a piece of furniture which is practical and fits in with our decor! Classy.....

Today we finished our #lockdowndiychallenge, which is this vintage coffee table that Andrew rescued from his great-aunt’s house clearance. It’s had sat in the loft of both our houses for over three years so it’s nice to have finally had the opportunity and inspiration (thanks @lookweboughtahouse) to finally upcycle it. . As per the rules, we only used items we had already, and it took around two hours to complete (not including the 16 hours in between coats of paint). . We are over the moon with the finished result! Check our stories to see the before. What will you be up-cycling? . . . #stayhome #stayhomediy #upcycle #mydfs #mynortheasthome #periodhome #cornerofmyhome #myhomevibe #northeasthomedecor #northeasthomes #ukhomes #glimpseofmyhome #instahome #ukhome #interiorstyle #interiordesign #terracestyle #victorianterrace #realhomesofinstagram #inmydomaine #beautifulhomesinthenorth #spotlightonmyhome #livingroom #livingroomdecor #lounge #designupnorth #walltowallstyle

Yesterday was a bit of a struggle for me so I took a break from social media and from the news. I set myself one task to complete for a client and I had an early night. It has done me the world of good and today I woke up feeling so much better. I think we can put too much pressure on ourselves to do everything and be positive whilst we have all this extra time on our hands but sometimes we just need to stop and be kind to ourselves. Tomorrow I really want to try doing some water colour painting because painting is so therapeutic. I haven’t painted anything picture wise since my art foundation course ( which was back in 2006/2007). Art was my favourite subject in school, through art is how I enjoyed time with my mum whilst growing up whilst drawing, painting and making things. And art is what I love to talk about with my clients as I get to learn about what they love through the pictures they have collected over the years. It’s through art that we can learn so much, be inspired and de-stress. I’m challenging myself to create my own artwork tomorrow. Thank you to @calligraphybyfk for the pretty pictures and honest words to keep me inspired ❤️. I might share some #bts moments as I make my masterpiece so follow my stories tomorrow! Also... I wrote a blog a couple of days ago sharing some things that have helped me stay sane over the past few days.

CARD DELIVERIES / I’m keeping the people who live in my village in cards. I can’t deliver essentials or supply anything foodie or useful in that sense but I can keep them stocked up with cards for the next few weeks! It feels helpful that they can still mark birthdays, anniversaries, special occasions or let someone they’re missing them by popping a card in the post. And it keeps me busy. 💌 💌 Little handwritten notes of thanks or hello go a long way right now. I’ve included stamps with the card deliveries so they don’t have to leave the village at all. I’ll be setting up a ‘Keeping You In Cards’ code and some new bundle packs on my website in the next few days for you all to use. - - - #keepingyouincards #snailmail #cardstoyourdoor #stayathomeclub #helpinghowican #stationeryandgreetings #madeintheuk #printandpattern #alisonhardcastle #designupnorth #alisonhardcastlecards #carddesign #printdesign #getorganised #stationerylove #greetingscards #stationerydesign #designprocess #surfacedesign #justacard

This bedroom is all about texture - from the hand woven South African Baskets, to the pure linen bedding and solid oak furniture. It’s not always easy to make your mark on a room in rental properties, but playing around with texture and colour in your fabrics and accessories is a great way to build cohesion and drama without losing your security deposit. You can hide all manner of ugly carpets with a well-placed area rug, and if your tenancy agreement allows it, hanging framed prints will also instantly start to bring a room together and detract from any questionable paint choices or vast expanses of magnolia. #rentaldesign #rentalhacks #roomdesign #interiordesign #bedroomdesign #designinspiration #designupnorth #roomreveal #Newcastle #bohemian #minimalist

Before all the craziness kicked off, the lovely @askatekira and @adamhollin were in town to take some snaps of a couple of our recent projects. We love this bright and airy bohemian bedroom that was recently completed in Newcastle. This grey, unfurnished rental was a total blank canvas. Without being able to add colour to the walls, we focused instead on creating warmth and cohesion through the furniture and accessories. This minimalist yet cosy scheme uses a paired-back palette with pops of rusty terracotta combined with layered, natural textiles and accessories to create a calming and welcoming master bedroom - a perfect haven for self-isolation! #roomdesign #interiordesign #bedroomdesign #designinspiration #designupnorth #roomreveal #interiorphotography #Newcastle #bohemian #minimalist

For once in my life.... #storyofmyhome . The other day while on my way home from work I stopped to take a picture of York‘s notorious shambles. It was then I realised for once in my life (all 29 years of it in york) there was nobody on this famous little street. My friends and I often joke we must be celebrities in other countries due to constantly being in tourists pictures. This is one of the U.K.’s most photographed streets used in many a TV / film backdrop! This might be a surreal picture but it is a sign of community, all coming together to stay in and fight this together! I think there is nowhere more close to someone’s heart than their hometown! And when we are allowed out I am so excited to explore more uk places! Where is your “place” in the uk? Where do I need to visit! . . . #myhousethismonth #theshambles #walltowallstyle #interiorstyling #myhomethismonth #mystylishspace #myseasonalrevamp #myinteriorvibe #mygorgeousgaff #myhometrend #interiorsnapshot #dailydecordetail #travelphotography #yorklife #interiordesign #mycosyhome #visityorkshire #myspaceanddecor #mycreativeinterior #myperiodhomestyle #beautifulhomesinthenorth #howivintage #mycuratedasthetic #designupnorth #spotlightonmyhome #visityork #travelblog

Literally no one will be watching - Just Dance 🙌🏻 . Has everyone been joining in with the #Interiorsthatcrush hashtag? Or does everyone’s house look like mine and every room looks like it’s been crushed and turned upside down - turns out WFH with your business partner means WFH is the thing you do all day everyday 😭 we’ve just been saying next week we need to sort out some routine - for this Marathon 😬 . Posters from one of our previous projects @the_bigdisco 💃🏼

PR bedside tables. For a very patient customer in London, thank you Peter. As you may have read in the post on the design process I had a fantastic brief from Peter that informed some of the design and the finish. Finished with 2 applications of @rubiomonocoatuk Fumed light pre colour, then sky grey 2c top oil. @armacmartin Handles. @blum_uk Movento runners.

New on the blog.... It's the final reveal post of the 70's living room. Yay! 🙌 That's right, the one I've ready shared way too many photos of already. Yay! 🙄 It's a long one. Because it was a long project. Please do check it out as there are links to everything you see in this pic and loads more in this room to see 👌 . I'll be spending most of today in bed me thinks.... After having a tight chest for nearly four weeks, I've finally come down with "something". Not sure if it's the C word. But my throat is mega sore and I'm well tired. Whatever it is, I hope it passes soon and without much fuss 🤞🤞🤞 . Stay well everyone 🤗
