A new year is filled with promise, excitement, intent. Whether it’s embracing a fresh routine, learning a new skill or embarking on a renovation project, January’s your starting pistol!   All dressed up and nowhere to go. Time to get planning! I tend to go off-piste all too quickly when it comes to lifestyle fads […]

Finding the ultimate neutral paint colour is arguably the holy grail of interior design. Clients and friends describe this as needle-in-a-haystack territory; there are just so many options to choose from. And, let's be honest, a flimsy little colour-card can only take you so far!

Unless you've been living on the moon, it's likely you're aware that leather is a HUGE trend right now.

One thing's for certain, home offices are now incredibly desirable. Somewhere that you can work productively and effectively, where you can Zoom with confidence, without the family's washing on display for all to see.
