12.06.12 ★ Style love: Sam Lennie’s family home
11.06.12 ★ my week
Dancing in the Jubilee moonlight, loving all the Queenie celebrations and our ELC Happyland figure, going ga ga for Sam’s home tour – our first ever and what a start!
Loving baby Ruby and our accessory model Jess, becoming overwhelmed after discovering a new favourite shop Latham’s and said cushion from shop! And pancakes – what’s not to love?

Sam Lennie, an interior designer & co founder of Phoenix and Fox, lives with her husband and two teenage boys Oliver and Barney. Their house built in 1927, is a family house design haven with an eclectic personality, ranging from a Scandinavian style white contemporary kitchen, to a dark and cosy living room space inspired by the Abigail Ahearn revolution. The house has a gorgeous flow from one room to another and it is hard to describe how’s Sam’s style has created such a warm inviting family place to be whilst confidently showing such contrast.
Make a cup of tea and sit down. You could be here some time.

03.06.12 ★ Out & About: The June 7
Our aim with Out & About is to highlight that there are some cool, unique and even random happenings for you to enjoy with the kids. The crew at Chalkboard Living love the month of June because it marks the start of summer. It’s also when we get to enjoy the longest daylight hours and more daylight hours equals more time for fun (kids and adults alike!). With this in mind, here are seven ways to treat the family during these early days of summer. And why “seven”, you might ask? Well, why not? We like to be different!

01.06.12 ★ Well hello there…
Essentially British, Chalkboard Living is my vision of a world full of cool stuff + kids. It’s family living in style. It’s about incorporating kids into your life without letting go of your own sense of fashion, style, of design and yep, your sanity, too. And if you’ve never had a sense of style or love for design in the first place? We will inspire you.
We are here to show you gorgeous family house tours, kids rooms, stuff to do for fun with your kids in under an hour, places to go each month, cool parties and totally rocking fashion and i think you’re going to like it.
Come along and join the party…we have milkshake!
