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. This is a very cool part of the world - with small, boutique galleries lining the cobbled streets and skilled artisans selling their bespoke pieces. Whilst design is key here, there is a distinctive less-is-more approach.

And relax! I’m talking that exquisitely indulgent moment – the moment when you first melt into a sumptuous hotel bed. Transient, yes but oh-so memorable.

This week, The Design Centre at Chelsea Harbour was my stomping ground and early morning coffee my fuel. Sporting my trusted snakeskin boots and a slick of punchy lipstick confidence, I was ready for anything that London Design Week could throw at me. And gosh, was there a lot. This year's theme - 'The Rise of Individuality and Creative Expression' was to be explored and interpreted across over 100 free events in and around the Design Centre. Including prestigious 'meet-the-designer' talks and presentations, highly skilled artisan demonstrations and showroom events aplenty, this was set to be a more jam-packed and unmissable event than ever before.

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 […]

Colour Trend: Purple Reign. Pantone’s announcement that Ultra Violet would be the colour of 2018 did not come as a total shock to me. Whilst I personally find this shade is a little brash and gaudy, purple has been gaining popularity for some time now. Unashamedly ‘70s – Prince would be proud - Pantone’s select hue also has a space-age, futuristic feel which seems totally relevant at this juncture. Whilst our sustained love of personalisation confirms our nostalgia, the growth of crypto-currency and technological advances highlights our embrace of the future. Ultra Violet ticks all the boxes as the next big colour trend.
