Home & Garden

Are you sitting comfortably?

THEN I’ll begin! Seating in the home is a vital element for being comfortable, and able to relax in your own environment. Most homes will have a sofa, and, because of our holiday environment and the need to increase capacity for visitors, many of these will be sofa-beds. But, apart from the sofa, there are […]

THIS week, as Summer approaches, we have put together a guide to watering your plants, ensuring your garden remains full of vibrant colours and smells! As we all know, during the Summer, our plants can quickly dry out, whimper and look a bit worse for wear! It’s vital they are watered, regularly, with a steady […]

Revamp your flooring

IF you are considering revamping your Tenerife property, one of the largest areas you will need to consider is flooring. This is a big investment, because it covers such a large space, and needs to be chosen with care. Mistakes can be disastrous. The same techniques apply to flooring as to other areas of interior […]

Your wall colours

THE use of colour is an integral part of any interior-design scheme, particularly so with the walls. This is partly because they make up the biggest area, and, whatever colour or pattern you choose, will dictate how the rest will look, or come together. Paint is one of the cheapest tools you can use to […]

Refurbishing your bathroom

WHETHER you have just bought a property, or have had it for some time and it is looking a bit tired, you may want to think about refurbishing the bathroom. If you want to stick to the same layout, the process can be relatively simple, because you may not need to move the plumbing. This […]

Dress those windows!

ABOUT a decade ago, the interior-design fashion was to match everything in the bedroom, to make it look very “designed”. This included the bedspreads, curtains, and, quite often, a set of toning plastic flowers, as well. Apologies to anyone who still has these items still in their property! Of course, now things are completely different, […]

A good night’s sleep

A GOOD night’s sleep is more important than most people realise. The health benefits are endless, and so are the negatives of not getting enough. This is quite relevant to me at the moment, because, with this heat and a newborn baby, the lack of sleep is not letting me think of much else!So, having […]

How to dress your windows

DRESSING the windows of your property is a vital part of your interior design, for a number of reasons. In Tenerife, at least some of your windows are likely to be patio doors. They take up a large part of the room, and the colour, style and pattern you choose will have a huge influence […]

The great outdoors!

IF you ask anyone who is a full-time resident here in Tenerife, or has just come over for the winter months, why they choose Tenerife, the number-one reason will be the climate! We all love the sun, and are trying to escape the grey skies of Britain, or anywhere else in Europe. Not so long […]
