Minnie Kemp’s style secrets for the front of your home


Do you remember that scene in Bambi when the philosophical brown owl explains what it is to be “Twitterpated” from high up in his oak tree? I highly recommend You Tubing the scene. Spring is here and, in the spirit of fresh woodland walks and sweet skunks called Flower, here are some tips to keep you fresh and frisky throughout this coming year.

City homes are notorious for having limited outdoor space, but that doesn’t have to stop you from getting green thumbed

Firstly, it all begins with your front door. Re-painting yours is a serious move. Why not go for Annie Sloan Capri Pink? It’s a bit of a statement with no strings attached. After all, it’s the first and last thing you see as you leave home, but it never bothers you when you’re resting amongst your decor, so why not have fun with it? Try out a bold paint color that really makes your heart leap. I love Invisible Green from Edward Bulmer, combined with Designers Guilds’ Tuscan Olive on the exterior window frames. Combining different shades like this creates depth.
