A DAY IN THE LIFE OF THE PEPPA HART OFFICE

Call it a stroke of genius or a moment of madness, Sophie decided to bring the Peppa Hart office under the roof of her Mediterranean Farmhouse to mix her busy business with raising her babes. Soph hated wasting time commuting to and from work, so this space is literally 10 steps from her master suite but all completely seperate…. Soph loves the idea of spending max time with her kids before she starts her work day and as soon as she clocks off in the evening she is straight into mum mode.

We wanted the extension to complement rather than contrast the original roof, so needed to find the perfect crown to sit atop this little black beauty.

MY TOP TIPS FOR CREATING AN ADULTS RETREAT

Guys, it’s this simple... ditch the TV and the kids will be out of your Adults’ Retreat faster than I chug down my first coffee of the day. Believe me, you’ll have the room to yourselves in no time! #funnybuttrue

The only problem in my house is that my husband’s not that sold on the no TV idea either. And without him, the ‘Nathan and Bonnie room’ becomes just the ‘Bonnie room’, and where’s the fun in that?
