DOING IT FOR THE KIDS: CHILDREN’S BEDROOM DESIGN Designing a children’s bedroom? It’s an exciting prospect but there are many plates to spin to ensure the space works both functionally and visually. Creativity and strategic planning are the perfect partnership when it comes to children’s bedroom design success. And whilst this is true of any […]

Interior design mistakes - we've all been there. Sofas that don't fit, impractical finishes regretted mere moments after installation, a colour that looks totally different to the tiny sample you signed off. In this post - the first of two - I will be identifying 3 common interior design mistakes and discussing ways to avoid them.

3 COMMON INTERIOR DESIGN MISTAKES – AND HOW TO AVOID THEM!

Renovations can be great fun. A chance to put your ‘stamp’ on a space – to elevate its aesthetic and and establish a fresh approach.

And – at the risk of full disclosure – know that I couldn’t be less of a seasoned ‘re-purposer/’up-cycler’ if I tried. Whilst I strongly support the notion that […]

Inspiration was rife in Mykonos - from the hotel's relaxed Myconian/Ibizian aesthetic to the breathtakingly beautiful Elia Beach. Every evening we would meander along the idyllic pedestrianised streets of the Old Town, famous for its smooth, stoney paths, overhanging trees and sloping white-washed buildings.

Whilst design is key here, there is a distinctive less-is-more approach.
