End of the school holidays


Here are a few snaps from around the new place. Today we have visitors coming, our new pieces of furniture arrive, and I need to get all the girls things ready for school tomorrow.



From next week I will resume usual interiors-focussed blog transmissions from here. I’ve got room makeovers and a few fashion shoots lined up too.

Over at Lovely Food I will be starting a new series, beginning with a 21 day super-cleanse. Remember the Charlotte Diet from a year ago that I said I’d write up? That one. I’ve spent the past year writing it – and over the past couple of months I’ve also written the maintenance plan.

Very excited to be sharing this big project!!

See you on the other side…

Our house

    It looks lovely Charlotte and I’m sure you’ll make it even lovelier. Looking forward to seeing the makeovers.

    So excited to read the blogs about your new home and I adore your interior photos as they give me inspiration for my own home! Love, love, love Lovely Food too – roll on next week!

    Have you committed to buying in the region Charlotte, or is this home just another stepping stone towards it?

      Victoria – we are still saving like mad. As contractors we need a huge deposit. I am going back to work in October and we will probably buy a second flat in London next.

      We will definitely be staying in this area though. We moved here for the girls school and will be here for fourteen years.

      The plan is to buy a really good house around here in about three years. It’s been a bit of a long road since we sold our beautiful place in Auckland.

      Hi Jeska, I’ll let you know when the 21 day cleanse begins – will be this week or next. Suddenly hugely busy! Huge congrats on Sunday’s news too 🙂

    So this is your new home! It’s gorgeous. I can’t wait to see what you do with it and how you work your Charlotte magic on this house. I hope your girls are settling into school ok. xx

      Hi Gillian – yes the girls are loving the new school. Everyone is much calmer and happier. Except the cats. They want to go outside and they aren’t allowed to yet!!

    Oh, you’ve really got yourself a bit of ‘Sussex’ in that beautiful house – and that view and outdoor space is fantastic! Hope that you are settling in well and look forward to seeing more of your home soon – it certainly looks full of promise! x

      Hi Louise – we are settling in remarkably quickly. It feels like home and did from the day we moved in. That said, we’ve just had our second lot of stuff arrive (the boxes we did ourselves) and now the house is just piled high with stuff. Time for a huge clearout.
