I love having visitors over to my home, not only because I’m a social creature but also because it has the added, built-in benefit of making me do a deep clean before they come. All those little things that I have been putting on the long finger get sorted out and ticked off the list. Keeping a clutter-free home takes discipline and organisation and life is always battling to get in the way. There are lots of little ways to maintain your home on a regular basis without having to do a big panicked clean-up before your guests arrive.

You don’t even need to put things out of sight; I really like my stuff — books, runners, travel keepsakes — but I like them neatly organised using beautifully functional furniture and homewear.
