February 14th, eh? If St Valentines is more of a botheration and you’d rather spend time with someone you love – yourself, then let Muddy inspire you to do something different during a soggy February day. However if you’re planning gifts, adventures, experiences – all in the name of love then we’ve got it covered.

It’s all well and good keeping the decs year after year, but it can get a bit tired, decorating your house the same way every year…which is where Pamela Gearing who owns Texture Interiors steps in.Read more

It’s indoors for one, and not in a dusty church hall. Nope. No dark and unused corners here, it’s in the owners’ home with roaring fires and mulling wine (I can almost smell the orange and cinnamon from here).I met Trudie Baker along with her hubby Shawn (and their talented trainee chef daughter), running their Bakers Bangers stall at the Althorp Food & Drink festival in September.Read more
Muddy men, though you’re often teased and prodded on Muddy Stilettos (because I know you like it that way), let it not be said that I never take you into consideration.
It is of course Father’s Day Sunday 19 June so here’s a Muddy Guide for those gift buyers who want to avoid my usual stance – a wild-eyed panic 12 hours before the big moment with nothing to show for your 10 years of taxi-ing and toy mending.Read more
Time to pimp up your patio? I’ve just discovered this range of funky deckchairs and cushions that will help your garden get its groove on…Read more
