Brunch is possibly my favourite meal of the day and to be honest I wish I could do it more often but life doesn’t always allow for it. We volunteer most Saturday mornings and then we’re at church every Sunday morning. We love both and wouldn’t swap them, although that does mean brunches are few and far between. Having said that, they’re extra special when they do happen. It’s a meal that allows you a bit of a lie in and some extra time to prepare something tasty. I’ve teamed up with Argos to inspire you with a cosy, Winter brunch, styled with some of my favourite items. Oh and I’ve included the recipes too!
The guys at Argos recently got in touch to see if I would share my top tips for choosing and styling a sofa and with updating our own sofas in the last year I have a little bit to say on the matter. Our home is totally open plan, bar a door for the bedroom and obviously the bathroom too. Our ‘hall’ kitchen, living room and dining room all flow into one another with no separation. This is a total bonus for a small or shall we say ‘cute’ flat like ours, giving the illusion of space, something you fight for in central London. This does however blur the boundaries between work and play for me as I set up shop in the dining room each day. Part of me likes not being shut away in another room but it does make it hard to clock off. All of this means we’re more deliberate with our living room area as we wanted it to be comfy and inviting with soft finishings and textures, nooks for cups of tea and space to store all our books for some time away from screens.
