Cushions – they just make everything better, don’t they? My husband, who doesn’t entirely agree with the initial statement and actually finds the sheer number we own somewhat ludicrous, would testify to my mild obsession. In truth, cushions are a fundamental part of my work – and life! Comfy, stylish and an easy (and relatively […]

Festivities are well underway. We’ve enjoyed (and quickly tired of) heavy snow, indulged in Christmas Jumper Day and shamelessly eaten our body weight in Celebrations (or at least I have)! The tunes are playing on repeat in every department store, on every school run and every office party playlist. Lights are up. ‘Out of office’ notifications […]

White decor - To achieve a Hygge-inspired Scandinavian space - the ultimate winter retreat - champion white and work texture. It can be daunting but don't be afraid to forgo colour, instead layering shades of white on white. If you wish to expand the palette, introduce soft greys, muted taupe or desaturated blues for a sense of tranquillity. Complement gentle hues with whitewashed wood, raw birch or greyed-oak and embrace natural materials wholeheartedly.

The ideal non-colour, perfect for a fuss-free interior reboot. Reflecting light beautifully, it is incredibly versatile and works with just about anything! After all the excitement and sparkle of the festive gift […]

Gold has certainly taken the reigns as hardware hero. Gold accents add a gorgeous glow so if you possess a greyed-out or monochromatic space (or love a desaturated outfit), I urge you to introduce a little gold. It really will uncover a new dimension. Whether its some shiny brass buttons on a blazer or a few choice home accessories, even a touch of gold can change the status of an outfit of an interior scheme from mediocre to outstanding...

Today, we’re talking about one of my favourite subjects ever. GOLD! Not a total surprise, you might think. And you wouldn’t be wrong. It has featured heavily in my ‘New In’ section for some time, in many of my Sarah Mailer Design interior schemes, plus it’s the metal du jour. Having graced both London Fashion […]

Focus/17 (17th  – 22nd September) runs with the motivation (as always) to unite the design world at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour (DCCH). This fabulous venue is somewhere I regularly frequent as a designer. Chelsea is known as the interior design epicentre of London and the Design Centre is home to 600+ leading international brands, offering a dynamic collective unseen anywhere else in the world. It's a real go-to destination for industry professionals but is also open to retail visitors who want to step beyond the high-street, gather inspiration and shop higher-end. A dynamic and immersive six-day event, Focus/17 showcases global creative talent in an elegant, sophisticated setting.

No – moreover than that – London Design Festival is […]
