I love antlers (and I don’t care!)

Antler decor: stag antler shield from Rose and Grey | www.angelinthenorth.com

It's hard to explain to a co-habitor why you want to put something in the house you share that seems completely incongruous. If only my husband spent as much time on blogs and Pinterest as I do, he would immediately understand my love, and need, for antlers. I know we live in a three bedroom suburban semi ...

DIY geometric bowl

DIY Sharpie project: monochrome geometric bowl | www.angelinthenorth.com

This old black and white bowl had been hanging around in our various bathrooms for a number of years. It was about to go in the bin, but its life was saved because it happened to be the perfect size to fit on a particularly awkward shelf below the new bathroom cabinet. I've been shopping around ...

Bathroom reveal!

Bathroom makeover | www.angelinthenorth.com

It's been a while - we started it in November - but I'm finally ready to share our finished bathroom. The majority of the renovation work was completed before Christmas but since then we've been tying up loose ends and adding the all-important accessories. First, let me remind you how horrible it was before - resplendent in ...

Let the light shine in

Bifolding doors create open indoor space in boathouse | www.angelinthenorth.com

If you were designing your dream house from scratch, I'd put money on your 'must haves' including lots of glass at the back. It's hard to find an episode of Grand Designs that doesn't have floor to ceiling windows or doors that open wide onto the decking or patio. It's not hard to see why, especially at ...

47 Park Avenue

47 Park Avenue, hall | www.angelinthenorth.com

When I saw this home on Design Hunter I thought, at first, it must be in Brooklyn, New York, or Paris, or London, at least. In fact, 47 Park Avenue is in East Yorkshire. Delving into the blog’s archives, I found it has been featured by several bloggers and magazines, and many also seemed surprised to find a ...

Interiors UK show 2014

Light up letters and tan leather sofa at Interiors UK show 2014 | www.angelinthenorth.com

As you know if you've been following my house tour, we're gradually renovating the entire house. So I'm always looking for inspiration and ideas, and was pleased to be invited by Neville Johnson to attend the Interiors UK show at Birmingham's NEC. I took a friend who has recently bought a house which is also a ...

Statement floral decor

Contemporary statement floral decor | www.angelinthenorth.com

The throw on the bed in the last picture in my recent post about my spare bedroom got me thinking about florals. These statement prints appearing on walls and fabrics everywhere are far from chintzy: florals have shaken off their 'old lady' connotations, and many designs have now moved on from the shabby chic trend of ...

How to decorate a 1960s house

Leeds 1960s house tour: how to decorate a 1960s house | www.angelinthenorth.com

I love my house, but not how it looks. We bought this place because it was in the right place at the right time and was a sound investment. I love what we're doing to the inside, but it's hard to renovate in the way that we're always told we should: by being true to the ...

Festive focal points (not fireplaces!)

Ideas for Christmas decor focal points if you don

I'll be honest, we aren't really going to town on our Christmas decorations this year. It's hard to muster enthusiasm to get all the trimmings out when, firstly, I'm not exactly sure where they are (loft somewhere?), secondly, we've all on to keep everything relatively straight and tidy with the renovations going on without bringing out ...
