Design/Architecture

  • 15 Collingwood is just ‘fabulous’

    Beautiful mid-century and modern movement design classics mixed with industrial and reproduction furniture, it’s all high quality, but most notably (to Philistine Muddy at least), it’s VERY affordably priced.

  • London’s spring exhibitions

    You can’t beat London’s museums for a culture fix. So unleash your inner Brian Sewell and check out these must-see Spring exhibitions – featuring Grayson Perry, Hockney and, um, Arnie’s Terminator suit.

  • On-trend Xmas decoration tips from Texture Interiors

    Do you love decorating your home for Christmas? Bringing the boxes down from the attic that were carefully and lovingly packed away the year before (or thrown in hastily, ahem, guilty as charged)! It’s always exciting to see the decs again, your favourite bauble, all those happy memories (like the year you set fire to the […]

  • Muddy watches – Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

    Well they came, they sang and they conquered and Muddy was lucky enough to be within spitting distance of Jason Manford who played the role of Caractacus Potts (rather ruddy well actually)! More well-known for appearances on TV shows such Live at the Apollo, 8 Out of 10 Cats and QI, the seemingly multi-talented Jason Manford took […]

  • What’s on Northants – Thurs 25

    Albion Artists Exhibition, The Primrose Gallery, Thurs 25- Sat 27 Aug I always feel dead posh at an art exhib (just me? tee hee). This one is a joint exhibition of recent work by Northamptonshire professional artists, Angela Stanbridge, Peter Almond & Jane Warwick. They all work in very different ways, giving a diverse and […]

  • Stay here: Thornbury Castle, Gloucestershire

    Hero, our Muddy editor over in Bucks/Oxon, went to stay at Thornbury Castle and she reckons us Northants peeps will want to hear about it, so here you go you gorgeous lot! Fancy something a bit different on the blogaroo today? No problem, may I offer you a stay in the Cotswolds castle where Henry VIII and […]

  • The summer hols continue…

    Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, Errol Flynn Filmhouse, Fri 29 Jul Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots (ahhh I remember the halcyon days). But when they accidentally push […]

  • What’s on Northants

    With the weather set fair, and summer holidays on the horizon, there’s still a fair bit to do and we haven’t even reached end of term.  There are loads of fantastic outdoor events taking place across the county, this weekend in particular, and if you are thinking of taking up residency in Northants this summer then […]

    • Muddy Guide

      An Introduction to Stained Glass (Copper Foil), Bay Tree Cottage, Thurs 23 Jun Those folks at Bay Cottage are pretty nifty at mixing it up aren’t they? During this hands-on introductory stained glass workshop, Anna Conti, will help you master the Copper Foil technique to produce two beautiful light-catchers to take away (and equip you […]

    • Muddy Lounges in the Castello and Kino

      Something’s happened in the towns of Market Harborough, Kettering, Peterborough and Wellingborough; a kind of shabby, chic lounging experience, only enhanced by a spicy Bloody Mary and a ridiculously delish brioche burger (AND a dicky bird tells me it’s coming to Corby soon, so you’ll never be wanting for a decent Bloody Mary again). Now the […]
