I regularly receive emails and phone calls from my lovely readers who would love to know the colours and finishes we choose for our home - they are listed in a few posts but thought it would be best to have a new blog post listing them all so its easier to find

The exterior colours as as follows

  2. You have a beautiful home. We are renovating our Edwardian at the moment. We did a major reno 15 years ago - amazing how time flies and it needs a refresh now. We're putting in a white shaker kitchen with Caeserstone waterfall island bench, with darker colour blocking on one section of the island bench cabinetry. I love your dark cabinetry and would appreciate your advice on what you used - is it laminate or two-pack, and what is the colour please? So many choices! Many thanks, Julie

    1. Thanks Julie and best wishes on your renovation - sounds lovely. Our island bench is a laminate - I can't remember off hand what the actual colour was - so sorry! If I find it I will come back and let you know

  3. You're home is amazing, I just adore it. We are about to commence what I call our Hamptons Inspired house soon. I have having trouble finding the cabinetry handles and knobs in stainless steel, any suggestions?

    1. I bought mine through Mother & Pearl in Richmond - they have a great range so hope that helps
