September Moments

And here we are again at the start of another month. Autumn is a time of year that I normally adore, but I have to confess that this year I’m finding it slightly less exciting. I think it’s because the summer was a little disappointing weather-wise and September, which can so often be glorious, was mostly cold and wet. Sadly no Indian Summer for us this year, but never one to focus on the negatives, I am trying to get myself in the Autumn/Winter spirit and the blog will ┬ábe doing the same soon too!

September was mainly a month for us of settling in to the house – the builders left at the end of July, we were away for a large part of August, so September was the first time that we could really sit back and appreciate the house now it’s finished. We had our Christmas shoot with Homes & Gardens at the very end of August (coming out next month), followed by a shoot with Essential Kitchens Magazine (for early next year), so those meant we really had to make a final push to tidy and sort all the rooms. As a result I’m now able to share more room tours with you on the blog – I started with the Summer Room┬álast week, which if you missed, do check it out and there will plenty more coming soon.

We’re also starting to make the house work for a living too! We’ve registered it with a location company and have already had our first shoot, with another booked for later this month. We also have launched the Chauffeur’s Flat on Airbnb, so it’s been quite a busy time, but lovely to see all our hard work finally paying off.

I hope you have had a lovely month and wish you a warm, cosy October.

    Hi Laura
    I have recently found your blog and am thoroughly enjoying your beautiful posts, I too live in Dorset and between working, dog walking and ferrying teenagers around I find I can enjoy sitting down to read your realistic blog posts.
    I often find blogs I read do not relate aesthetically to my lifestyle with posts on way out clothes or impractical interiors.
    You mentioned in a recent article about registering with a location company, could I ask, does the mean that companies may use your home for photo shoots. This is something I would be interested in for my own home would you be able to provide any further information as I am ensure where to start.
    Many thanks and patiently awaiting the next post
    Joanne

      Hi Joanne,
      Thank you so much for your lovely comment – I’m so pleased that you like my posts!
      We have just started using our house for photo shoots – we use Shoot Factory, but I think there are a number of companies out there that you can register with – try search location houses and see what comes up!
