Celebrity Homes: Sir Elton John and David Furnish

December 7, 2009

Usually, I am more a fan of the neutral colour palette, but I may just have changed my mind when you see bold colours used as well as the Los Angeles home Sir Elton John shares with his partner, David Furnish.

I think the view here speaks for itself. And that rug looks so soft. Oh, to have that rug under my bare feet.

I would have never even considered using purple countertops but this kitchen looks so sleek.

Kirstie’s Homemade Home

May 1, 2009


Kirstie Allsopp is back on television, but shockingly, with no Phil. Over the past two weeks she has been on a mission to renovate Meadow Gate; a dilapidated country cottage in Devon using everything either made in the UK or made by herself.


Up to now, she has renovated the kitchen in a blue and white theme and her three bathrooms; speaking to interior designer Anouska Hempel and visiting Burgh Island Hotel for inspiration.


I have to say, I had reservations about the renovation when seeing her plans to decorate the walls with plates and some of her purchases but having seen the end result, the cottage loks beautiful. Ooh, and her attempts to make scented candles, cushion covers and blowing glass to make her own tumbler brings out the crafty side of me.

What do you think of the cottage? Check out Channel 4 for more photos and info.
