Ta-daaa! The Real Living feature: Our (ex) home

Lately, a lot of people have been asking me whether I miss our "old" house. And it's strange, but here's the thing: After finishing a renovation (nearly killed us), finishing off every last detail (never ending story), getting it 100% PERFECT to put on the market (niiiightmare), and then tidying, de-cluttering and keeping it spotless (with 2 young children) for open for inspections? Well, no. No I don't miss it at all. But it was such a fab house, and we loved it dearly. What I'm really looking forward to now (well, soon anyway!), is having a go at the beachy decor thing. You know, with a 50s twist! Anyway, here's that feature! The story begins: "Forget the diamonds, eBay is a girl's best friend - well, certainly Louise Bell's."

Real Living's November 2010 issue is on sale now.


  1. Wowzers! That's absolutely amazing Louise - congrats. By the way, I have extreme love for your giant yellow pom-pom aka juju hat.
