The front door. A staple item to a home, and one of the first things that greets guests. Gone are the days of the functional front door draped in a drab tone representative of an old sock. The front door is experiencing a come back, with Instagram hashtags dedicated to the greats and good in the front door world (simply type #LondonDoors, #Door, #FrontDoor or #DoorsofInstagram in to Instagram to open up an endless list of snaps), and we are certainly embracing this new trend.

Gemma has grown up by the Dorset seaside, and adores any colour that can be found on a sunny shoreline or in the perfect sunset. She has a crafty eye, and is always looking for that perfect project to channel her inner upcycler. Her weaknesses are stationary (notebooks with a foil finishes), profound song lyrics and film soundtracks, and she can frequently be found stalking her way around floral pictures and stunning snaps on Instagram.
