Wishing you all a Happy Bank Holiday .. Let us all hope that the weather warms up! .... We here at NP/ME have had a busy few years ....

And... We are going back to our routes of 'doing up' our own properties as well as dealing with clients needs ... Which is exciting ... 

As you will know from this site we have been involved with the design of a new product on the market THE/TOOL ... Which is the only tool on the market that easily and cleanly removes wall plugs ... Click on  THE/TOOL tab more information and special offers ... 

We have always designed bespoke furniture items for clients and ourselves and we are now doing more of this ... Can't find it on the market we will design it ... Some of this is based on the up-cycling/recycling trend of the moment... I will post more on this as the items become available ... We have sold all the pieces we have designed so far ... So all very exciting ... 

Here is just a small piece that I designed for myself ... A wooden composite chopping board polished with oil and set on a stainless kitchen stool base ... It is great because it can be used as a side table at any height ... Or pushed to the lowest level for me to chill on & eat my dinner in front of the TV .... I will be using it for this purpose this weekend eating my Sushi [See Voyage tab] to watch Line of Duty!

So my friends have a wonderful Break .... Natalie x

One of my favourite pastimes, as you know if you read my blogs is flicking through my beloved glossy magazines, when I get a moment… A few months ago I was looking at the adverts in the back pages; I am always fascinated to see what is selling… I noticed a picture of some really beautiful little ceramic knobs.. I instantly liked them for two reasons, firstly they were different from what is on the market at the moment and secondly they were being sold in collections of multi-designs, which really appealed to me... You can of course buy them in matching groups, if that suits your design remit…. It is really quite on trend at the moment to use different styles of door knobs in contrasting colours that complement each other and this is a really good way to update a cupboard or a cabinet in a really short timescale.


Sometimes you just want to rejuvenate an item of furniture without too much fuss; these are the “go to” item, for me. Once I had seen these beautiful little creations from the company “These Please”,who hand make and hand paint each unique piece in designs to suit all the rooms in the home, including the babies room … For me, it was all about finding the right item of furniture to show case these little beauties…

And this cabinet was the perfect candidate …

The lovely people at“These Please” kindly sent me a set of 20 shiny ceramic door knobs… To update this time worn, quirky chest of drawers, I wanted to keep the rustic look of the drawers, so all I needed to do was to replace the knobs, which are extremely well made, easy and quick to fit. My only tip would be that when fitting, if using tools, do not over tighten the securing nuts as you could possibly crack the knobs…

Just look at the difference…. I think the pictures speak for themselves….


If you would like to get some of these beautiful door and drawer knobs, which are sold at an extremely reasonable price point.. Contact www.theseplease.co.uk / 01435 817153. The knobs come in various set sizes and modules, which have circumference dimensions of between 2.5cm – 4.5cm. You can choose from a large number of designs, styles and colours….

Go to the site and check them out you won’t be sorry …..
