I write about culture and luxury for The Economist, style for Intelligent Life, and I’m a columnist at Elle Decoration. I’m writing a book about colour to be published by John Murray in 2016. You can see a selection of my published work in the portfolio section.

I am fond of all sorts of things including, but most definitely not limited to, clothes and jewellery I can’t afford, historical style, beautiful books, chocolate, spaghetti carbonara, old movies and stationery.

For commissions and general queries please feel free to email me.


Everything on my blog is there because I love it. I always credit and/or link to the creator but if it’s yours and you’d like me to remove or alter a credit please let me know.
