Designing a children's bedroom? Go hard or go home! Alternatively, go to sleep, go and play, go and do your homework - there are many plates to spin to ensure the space works both visually and functionally.

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 […]

'Trend' is fast becoming a dirty word. Fickle and fanciful, it alludes to a fast-paced, throwaway approach - the antithesis of sustainability. With uncertain times ahead, the idea of the 'investment piece' is beginning to dominate our sartorial and interior design decisions with a 'make do and mend' mantra on its tail. All this aside, 2019's arguably hottest 'trend' - 'Mixed Materials' - is far from flighty.

MORE THAN A TREND: MIXED MATERIALS ‘Trend’ is fast becoming a dirty word. Fickle and fanciful, it alludes to a fast-paced, throwaway approach to design – the antithesis of fashionable term ‘sustainability’. With uncertain times ahead, the idea of the ‘investment piece’ is beginning to dominate our sartorial and interior design decisions with a ‘make […]

Interior design mistakes - we've all been there.

The constant decision-making – from […]

The days are getting shorter and undeniably colder but I, for one, am delighted. This is largely because, dark mornings and de-icing aside, it feels the perfect time of year to truly indulge. In food, in fashion – there’s no such thing as too many coats – and in you. Who doesn’t rejoice in a […]

Whilst I strongly support the notion that great design is for everyone, regardless of budget, and appreciate that many people have great success in the aforementioned areas, I feel it necessary to highlight from the outset that 'stylish interiors on a budget' is not necessarily my specialism. I say this wincing uncomfortably and hiding behind my hands. This is, after all, not what I should be saying out loud. Upcycling/reviving the old has seen a fashionable revival. Sustainability is hot topic. But, whilst I support these ideals and practices wholeheartedly, it's important to remember that we all have our individual preferences and strengths.
