In June, Nicola Wilkes and Holly Jolliffe came to shoot our house for the November 2011 issue of Ideal Home magazine.

We bought our two hundred year old old cottage, located in a small village overlooking the Blenheim Palace estate, as a quick renovation project to be sold and then move onto the next property. But, we fell in love with it, and the village and the wonderful people here. Then I got pregnant and we discovered the fantastic school... and here we remain!

The house is always evolving and we are about to start re-working the kitchen, bathroom and the exterior of the house - none of these have had much attention, except for a quick lick of paint since the initial renovation. Planning a more industrial kitchen (maybe featuring another of our wallpapers), a chic bathroom with freestanding bath and wall hung basin and loo.  Our bedroom is also about to go 'grey' - in love with Farrow and Ball's Downpipe grey at the moment! Oh, and our daughter has outgrown her room and is moving to a larger one! All of this gets me very excited - absolutely nothing better than designing interiors!

Thanks to Ideal Home, Nicola and Holly.
