The Bramwell Brown Blog

Meet the Blogger and their Weather Clock - Jane Cousens

This week we are meeting interiors and lifestyle blogger Sarah-Jane Cousens from Just A Little Build...

Can you tell us a bit about your blog please?

The blog was started in June 2016 when we moved out of the house and into our onsite static caravan. Throughout the whole 8 months, I diarised the unfolding of our build and experiences as a family. I shared my pictures through Instagram which was the springboard to 'Just A Little Build'. We are now living in the house and slowly furnishing it room by room. With the build now complete my blog primarily focusses on home interiors, lifestyle and any new projects which we decide to embark on. 

What's your favourite room in the house and why?

This has to be our open plan room - the space that we spend 90% of our waking time and what formed as the basis to our build project.

Where do you hang your Bramwell Brown Weather Clock and why?

My Bramwell Brown weather clock will be going down to our holiday home in Cornwall as the weather by the coast is much more interchangable. I hope to see the mechanical barometer work more often down there!

Can you sum your Bramwell Brown Weather Clock up in three words?




Any tips for incorporating clocks into your interior design?

Be practical and put them in places that you are going to see them the most after all, that’s the whole reason why you bought a clock in the first place - to know the time! I like having a clock in family spaces as that’s where I spend most of my time.

What are the big interior trends that we should be looking out for in 2019?

Apparently…. we are moving away slightly from the colour grey - who would have thought!? The latest interiors trend is warm, earthy neutrals. For the past few years, grey has dominated the neutral interiors palette. But sandy shades are back, and proving to be anything but boring. 

Finally, we love mechanical/ analogue objects; what mechanical/ analogue do you have in your home or remember from your childhood that you love(d)?

My mum still has our great great grandfather’s clock which is very traditional in design but still makes a wonderful chime!

Thank you to SJ for speaking with us.
