The Pink House dining room’s Spring revamp

Somehow, between not adding a dinner service to our wedding list nearly 11 years ago (given that we ate out 75% of the time, I was much more interested in accumulating cash to spend on honeymoon) and procreating two small Pink House Dwellers who smash plates like they’re at a Greek wedding, we never got round to acquiring attractive tableware, although our plastic Peter Rabbit bowl game was strong.

Until I laid eyes on Marks & Spencer’s latest array of dining table deliciousness...click below to see my pick of their spring collection styled up in The Pink House dining room.

6 reasons shopping in store is the shizzle

Hey! Did you know you can still buy three-dimensional things in a real life shop and not everything has to be bought by clicking a button? I know! So ODD. But really rather lovely. My latest blog post includes my picks of the M&S SS18 Home collection, plus some pics of me cavorting around the store like a child. Hope you like it!..Emily x #ad #mymarks

Evening! I’d just like to take this opportunity to apologise for the lack of blog post this week - I’m working on a couple of very exciting and rather time consuming projects which are taking temporary precedence. Plus, to be perfectly honest, I’ve been going out and getting slightly squiffy on the odd school night, making me a little less productive of a morning #tiredasanewt 😳. I blame Dry January: I have a very bad habit of obstinately not wanting to do what I feel I’m ‘supposed’ to do, hence my January being rather wetter than my December ☔️🥂. Oh and as an aside(board) 🤦🏼‍♀️: I’m still on the search for the perfect vintage sideboard to replace this @mucknbrass beauty which I borrowed for the @sundaytimeshome photoshoot but is now with its rightful owner 💖. Any leads much appreciated - I’m after something about 2 metres long, pretty and robust. Although aren’t we all...🍆😅. #bigpinklove #showmeyoursideboard

Oh hai, pretty little pink P pot from @pentreathandhall that the Pink House Husband bought me for Christmas (who else wanted to go on Blockbusters so they could say, “can I have a P, please Bob?” 💦🙋🏼‍♀️). I can’t say it was the biggest surprise I’ve ever had, mind you; I am the world’s least subtle gift hint-dropper after all 😬. Oh, and HOW gorgeous is this Cacti 🌵 book by @emmasibley89 from @londonterrariums? Even if it wasn’t really useful and beautifully art-directed on the inside, I’d be buying it for the #shelfie and #styled potential of the cover alone. That green is just heart-eyetastic. And then in the background you’ve got my current obsession: my to-die-for new @sofasandstuff armchair upholstered in @ian_mankin airforce blue velvet (topped with my @bluebellgray cactus 🌵 cushion, which I’ve managed to keep alive for AGES now 😉). Blog post on my new soft furnishings coming soon...#canihaveappleasebob #whyhaveonly34peopleusedthathashtag #doesanyoneactuallyknowwhatimtalkingabout

I styled an exciting photoshoot at The Pink House today (more to be revealed soon 😊) - even the kids and Pink House Husband had to be photographed 😅. Luckily, bar carts are easier to style than children...🙄. Child wrangling aside (“I’ll give you one chocolate for every 30 seconds you sit still” 🤯) it was fun to get to grips with this side of the family room which up to today has been covered in piles of kid-related crap (there’s nothing like a photoshoot for renovation motivation). While I search for the perfect mid-century vintage sideboard I borrowed this one, with its pink neon ‘LOVE’ decoupage, from the fabulous @mucknbrass. I’m hoping she won’t need it back any time soon 🤞🏻💖. #photoshoot #barcartstyling #upcycledfurniture

This is the space between our open plan dining area and family room where the Christmas tree was 🎄❌. And before the tree, this was where our large dresser live since we moved in in July (I sold the lovely solid oak dresser on eBay for a ridiculously low price just to make space for the tree 😬 - Pink House Husband is still cross 😡). Anyway. I’ve thought for a couple of months now that it would be the perfect spot for this vintage chest of drawers and I think I was right; the honey tone of the wood looks lovely against the @farrowandball Calamine pink wall. This is my first try at styling it up, but actually, since taking the photo I’ve already swapped the @dalevnmarshall watercolour for a smaller picture (don’t worry - Dale’s colourful, thought-provoking art will find a home on another Pink House wall) and I’m planning to get shelves fitted further up the wall. This section of the house is rather tricky as it’s an odd shape - I haven’t really showed any of it on Insta yet - but I’m getting closer to its reveal...Happy Wednesday eve to you all. I’ve eaten a Pasta n Sauce with extra broccoli 🥦 and I’m considering opening a bottle of wine...🍷 #wetjanuary

Talk about an amazing Christmas present: today The Sunday Telegraph’s @stella_telegraph magazine named me as one of their top 50 influencers, along with some amazing women who have massively influenced ME since The Pink House launched last February! 💖These include: @mad_about_the_house @erica_davies @frenchforpineapple @mother_pukka @dresslikeamum @mother_of_daughters @rockettstgeorge @frenchforpineapple and @pandorasykes 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻. Genuinely overwhelmed and completely delighted to be included alongside such wonderful women.

Happy Christmas Eve Eve everyone! I’m planning to spend mine with a bottle of champagne and Daniel Craig 🍾💖. Don’t worry about the Pink House Husband - he’ll be upstairs trying to assemble the remote controlled car he bought for the 7yo Pink House Dweller. He thought he’d bought one that didn’t require assembly - turns out he’s basically bought a box filled with hundreds of tiny car parts 🙄. We may require a back-up present as there’s a decent chance this one won’t be ready till the spring 🏎❌. Anyone got a spare Lego Death Star?

One of my favourite things about Christmas is how rearranging furniture to make way for the tree results in my trying out different furniture configurations. 🎄Today I swapped out the round side table for this little gold chest of drawers; I thought it would look rather lovely with this vintage lamp on top. I switched the shades too - HOW pretty is this ombré pink shade from @bhs_uk? British Home Stores? Yup! They’re back, and their lighting range is especially good - defo worth checking out between sherries. Actually, I’m currently enjoying a rather large @edinburghgin Plum and Vanilla (thanks @nimsburt 👊🏻) with tonic. Again, it’s a combo well worth checking out between sherries. Hic. Happy festive evening to you all! Mine’s a Thai takeaway and whatever film me and the Pink House Husband can agree on (usually takes about an hour of negotiation). 🥂💖 #pinkchristmas

How to create a wow-factor Christmas table (even if you can’t cook)

In-laws coming round for Christmas dinner? Can't cook to save your life? Join the club. But never fear - what we lack in culinary skills, we can more than make up for in fabulous table styling.
So when the people at Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayonnaise asked me to share my ideas on how to upgrade your Christmas – specifically, your Christmas table - I was only too happy to oblige...

Making more progress with the sitting room - isn’t it amazing how loooooong it takes to get a room properly finished? So here you can see I’ve started to put some of my books on the shelves (I have literally thousands of books; way more than I have space to shelve them) and it already feels so much more like home. And I’m sorting the lighting sitch too - introducing another new member of the Pink Household: this lovely black-and-gold @pookylights floor lamp, which casts a gorgeous soft glow but is also really good for reading under when you angle the head just right. Still searching for the perfect brass candle sconces to go either side of the @rugmanart Bowie pic. I love the @abigailahern pineapple ones but I’m concerned they’re a bit big for the space. Any recommendations much appreciated. Have a fab day! 💖😘#pinkhouserenovations

Welcome to The Pink House, beautiful @bendgoods bar stools from across the pond (L.A. to be precise)! 😍To my knowledge, these are the only Bend Goods Lucy counter stools in the UK (this design comes in counter and bar height) - come on UK retailers: stock up! Because these stools are not only beautiful, they’re SERIOUSLY comfy. The only down side? They’re so glam and gorgeous they make the rest of my kitchen look like it needs an upgrade. But never fear, for upgrade is what I plan to do, starting with marble work surfaces in the new year - as soon as I can pin Pink House Husband down for a date, we’re off to ogle stone slabs. Actually, on that subject, does anyone know of a company who could remove our existing heavy worktops for us in January? Any suggestions much appreciated - we’re in South East London. Right better go and tend to my post-friend’s-40th hangover ☕️☕️☕️. And convince PHH to take the 4yo to Rugby Tots. Because later this morning I’m off for a bottomless Bloody Mary brunch at the @sg_darwin in the Sky Garden with @gold_is_a_neutral and @katefaithfullwilliams 🍹🍹🍹🍹🍹👍🏻 #partyseason #barstools

Happy Friday from my vintage 19th century French refectory dining table of absolute DREAMS 😍. I’ve never before found a dining table I really liked - they’re either too heavy, too flimsy, too contemporary, too old fashioned, too glassy, too veneered, too cheap-looking or just too damn ugly. But this one’s different. This one, which I just acquired from @retrouvius, has gorgeous, aged, honey-coloured wood, a pretty central drawer with original handle that runs the width of the table, a comfy, bendy foot rest that makes you wonder what shoes have bounced on it over the last 200-odd years 👠👡👢👞👟, and a surface that’s already scored with old scorch marks, woodworm holes and scratches, meaning I don’t have to worry that any new marks will harm it - they’ll just add to its history. And guess what? The Pink House Husband LOVES it! 😱 #kitchentable #kitchenrenovation #pinkhouserenovations

Since moving to London, I’ve become obsessed with plants and plant prints. Maybe it’s because our house backs onto a wood, or perhaps its my contribution towards cleaning up the filthy London air. Or could it simply be because they look so damn good. 😍Having started with this @sandbergandfriends Malin wallpaper in my kitchen, I’ve started layering foliage - plants and prints - on top. The latest arrival at the Plant Party 🎉 is this @houseofhackney Palmeral lampshade and matching mug. You might also spot the little brass mister (missus?) I bought from @petershamnurseries last week. Also in shot: hanging macrame planter from @by_me_katie (I have another waiting to be hung in another corner), plants and pots from @forest_london, and cushion from @amaraliving. Oh and stealth green radiator painted in @farrowandball Smoke Green 💚🌿💚. #plantsonplants

I would just like to state for the record that my sitting room DOESN’T currently look anywhere near as festive or floral as this. One of the funny things about being a blogger/influencer/PLEASE can someone come up with a non-cringe word for my job? is that you live your life slightly out of synch with the seasons 🍁🌱🎄☀️❄️🤷🏼‍♀️. So this photoshoot took place at the end of October, as did a New Year shoot in my dining area (pics of that coming soon). Then normal autumnness was restored for a few weeks (decorations were sent back to where they came from - well, most of them *cough* @amaraliving Battenberg dec *cough*) before Christmas hit in my kitchen last week once again. It’s fair to say that a) the small Pink House Dwellers are very confused (“Santa won’t know when to come down the chimney!” 😬), and b) the Pink House Husband is sick to the back teeth of cardboard boxes full of sparkly stuff, confectionery-themed decor, and Christmas. Me? I’m LOVING it! 🎄👍🏻 Photo: @susielowephoto Amazing real roses in the Christmas tree: @hayfordandrhodesflowers #hohoho #christmasinoctober

Happy Saturday! I'm feeling a little fragile after a night of imbibing at @thenedlondon with @sheknowslondon @jadelovejoy @ernaleon @beautybytahirauk 🍸🍹🍸🥂🍹🍸💃 🤢but I've just eaten a restorative Thai prawn curry 🍛 👍🏻 (Thai Orchard in Forest Hill - highly recommended) and my hand has stopped shaking enough to share with you a moodboard I made for a new client 😅. I don't take on many interior design projects as I prefer to spend the majority of my time writing, drinking champagne and preventing my children from killing each other (🖋📚🥂👦🏼👦🏻💣🔪⚰️❌), but I couldn't resist this one as my client has THE best taste (well obvs - she hired me 😂) and a fabulous home. So this moodboard is for the family TV room in her beautiful West London apartment, which she wants to have a luxe feel, while still being practical enough to accommodate a fairly large family wanting to watch the box together. (I mean large as in lots of them, btw; I'm not referring to their BMI 😬). So here we have a gorgeous @wendymorrisondesign wool and silk chinoiserie rug made bespoke to match two gorgeous sapphire-blue velvet chairs my client already owns 💙💙. Calamine pink @farrowandball walls, marble coffee table and lamps, and a sofa upholstered in Dusk grey @designersguild velvet piped in Blossom pink, among various other goodies. I'm about to get ordering the items and the rug is going on the loom this week I believe; all very exciting! 🎉 I'm doing another room in the same house of which I'll share details with you soon...TAP FOR CREDITS... #moodboard

Following on from yesterday's Insta Stories where I showed you around my beige af home and discussed my renovation plans, a few people have asked about the kitchen handle situation. Specifically, how I intend to replace the current chrome handles with gorgeous new brass @busterandpunch babies, without leaving a mess on the cupboard door where the old holes were (the new handles are a slightly different size). The answer is here in these pics: the Pull Bar/Plate handle - the key being the 'plate' part (B+P do a non-plate version too) which lies flat on the cupboard door and hides all previous holes and any scuffs or scratches created when removing the previous handles. Hooray! 💛💛💛 Any other excellent kitchen hacks, I'd love to hear them! Photos: @busterandpunch #homedecorhacks

Today I'm feeling all Throwback Thursday for this, the family room in the house I left 3 months ago. But it's not because I'm feeling nostalgic - it's because I've just hired someone to come and install similar egg-and-dart cornicing in my new London sitting room. I've always had a thing for fancy cornicing (#ihavethisthingforcornicing - turns out I'm the first one EVER to use that hashtag so either a) no one else loves cornicing like I do, or b) I'm a hashtag geek) and the coving currently in my Edwardian sitting room is way too plain and boring and definitely not up to the standard of the original marble fireplace. Right I'd bette go because PHH is giving me death looks as I'm writing this instead of eating the miso aubergine (🍆 😬) he's so loving prepared. Happy Thursday evening everyone! #tbt

Since The Pink House started back in February last year, I've been a big fan of MiaFleur's colourful, fabulous home decor, but always thought their floral name was, well, a little too Cath Kidson for my tastes (sorry Cath 😬). So when the excellent MiaFleur ladies recently announced they were changing their name to Audenza (@audenzahome) to reflect their fabulous and fearless approach to living, I was all like YESSSS! 💪🏻💖👊🏻🥂And being a sucker for a good brand, I love their funky af stuff even more than I did before. Case in point: this Brass Flamingo Leg table lamp, because a) #flamoji, and b) pink, gold, totally bonkers, why would you not?

In Mondays we draw mice 🐭! In fact, I drew this little guy two years ago (thanks Facebook) when I was working on the design and branding for The Pink House. I've always had a thing for mice - they were the first thing I learned to draw as a toddler (they were always eating lollipops, for some reason 🍭); I had a myriad of furry cat toys; and one of my most prized possessions as a kid were my pink mouse slippers. In fact, I've also always felt a strong affinity with cats 😻, and have a vague sense that perhaps I was feline in a former life (hence the mouse-love). So when it came to designing a logo for The Pink House I wanted to ensure it reflected my aesthetic and the things I loved and felt intrinsic to me. In the end, this dude didn't make the cut, as I thought the logo would look too messy (it's hot pink with curly lettering reflecting my love of calligraphy - see it on my bio). But maybe one day a little gold Ms Mouse will come to join the Pink House Party - perhaps on some gorgeous packaging... 🐭🎉. #thepinkhousemouse
