Today's question. what should be the first area I think about when designing my kitchen? As long ago as the 18th century the area used for the actual cooking within a kitchen was recognised as the most important part of the kitchen. Once this was established the kitchen became a room of central meaning for the first time. From an aesthetic point a range cooker or professional cooker like the Lacanche, with an extractor above, which is a dominant feature should always be considered first. Then the food storage and food preparation areas can be fitted In around it

Such a clever idea for a Father's Day cake. Get baking
Just what I need, coffee and one of MrH's ginger biscuits. Well perhaps more than 1!
Today's question. How can I display pictures in a more interesting way? Why not group prints and pictures in salon style on a wall to create an artwork or installation rather than displaying them singularly. Work from a corner, rather than the centre, and take it right up to the ceiling to add height. Here are some example from my Pinterest pages. http://pinterest.com/hutchinsonstyle/display-art/
Garden job this week. Your herbaceous borders should be about to peak this month so ensure you keep them well staked to avoid any flops. Fill any gaps now so they are almost disguised by new lush growth as it pushes through. And keep deadheading to ensure you have flowers through the summer.
Our blog has a great guide to garden jobs to complete this month. http://www.alisonhutchinsondesign.co.uk/2013/06/04/garden-jobs-for-june/

chilling story on morning TV about how many chemicals we come into contact with each day when showering, cleaning our teeth, washing our hair, putting on our make up.

Today's question. how to I pull the colour scheme for my small room together without appearing dull. Paint the ceiling, coving and any shelves the same colour as the walls. It will add height to the room and automatically makes anything in it look more expensive. Opt for one of the neutral shades from Little Greene. Their paint is fantastic quality and environmentally friendly too. Call me if you need a colour chart posting out to you.
Here are our top tips on what to tackle in the garden this month
Garden job to do this week: Keep hoeing off weeds to prevent them seeding. Small weed seedlings can be left to shrivel and die on the surface of the soil. Put larger ones in the compost heap as long as there are no seed heads.
Cut back spring-flowering clematis as they finish flowering and tidy up spring-flowering shrubs. Cut clematis back to where you want them to grow from. The growth that they put on over summer will be the flowering stems next spring. With spring flowering shrubs, cut out one third of the old wood at the base of the shrub to encourage strong new shoots. I like to run a pair of secateurs over the whole shrub and tidy up any spent flower heads too but that’s just because I’m a bit too tidy for my own good! Enough said.

Today's question. i have fallen in love with a fabric with a striking pattern but don't know how to include it in my recently decorated room. Where should i start. Pattern and texture are the herbs and spices of the decorating world. If you already have curtains and don't want to replace them immediately try using the patterned fabric for cushions or a throw. Then pick out one of the colours within the pattern to use within your accessories etc.
