Creative Spaces: The Gorgeous Country Cottage Of Clare (@ourlittlechurchcottage)

Clare's Gorgeous Country Cottage Kitchen

“Everyone was so kind and welcoming and the village was full of rustic charm and we knew we’d found somewhere pretty special.”


For the next Creative Spaces feature I’m so pleased to share the gorgeous country cottage of Clare, better known on Instagram as ‘@ourlittlechurchcottage‘. With a beautiful balance of quaint features and modern styling, and soft pops of floral colour, Clare’s home feels so welcoming, cosy, and calm. I’m a particular fan of how she brings a creative touch to her interiors by making some decorative elements herself. It just adds to the personality and joy of the cottage. I can’t wait to find out more about the space, so let’s get started…

“As you might be able to tell, interiors are totally my thing! I love the creativity that goes into layering things and finding your style.”


There may have been a longer delay than intended in sharing another Creative Space with you (finding the right spaces and fitting in with everyone’s timings has been a bit trickier than expected) but, I promise you, the wait is worth it. The next feature I have for you is so gorgeously classic yet contemporary, with touches of tactile comfort and a light but grounding sense of nature. Ceri Olofson, of Candour and Polish, is an incredible copywriter and brand message coach (you might remember her Creative Business feature last year), she’s also an avid lover of interior design. Her stylish office and home are so perfectly ‘her’, and I can’t wait to hear the story behind their creation…

Creative Spaces: The Beautiful Garden of Hazel Shaw (Eden Blooms Florist)

Beautiful Garden of Hazel Shaw, owner Eden Blooms Florist

“As the years have gone by its moved from being a decorative garden to a productive cutting garden full of herbs, annuals, roses, dahlias and peonies which we use for our wedding work.”


I am giddy with excitement as I write this post. It’s the first in a brand new series called ‘Creative Spaces‘… a series I hope is going to really inspire and interest you. It’s certainly brought me joy already, just putting it together!  From small business studios to home interiors and from the literal (i.e. a space where creative magic happens) to the lateral (a space where lots of love has gone into its creation) – the Creative Spaces series is going to explore some wonderful, gorgeous, and imaginative spaces, and the stories behind them.  

To start things off, I’m bringing you a breath of fresh air with the beautiful garden of Hazel Shaw (owner of Eden Blooms Florist). I follow Eden Blooms on Instagram and, throughout lockdown, Hazel has been sharing stories and images of her stunning garden. As someone who doesn’t have a garden, it has been a wonderful escape for me and I’ve looked forward to seeing that little coloured circle appear around her Instagram profile icon – signalling more inspiration and peaceful imagery might be just a tap away.

Without further ado, let’s discover more about Hazel’s garden (prepare to feel a sense of content calm wash over you)
