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.

RESOLUTIONS, GOALS & NEW COLOUR TRENDS It can’t still be January, can it?! Almost a full month in and it continues to feel very much like December’s hangover – that morning after the night before.

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.

Holiday House London - Following the beautiful runner up the stairs, Fiona Barratt Interiors's 'Curated Design' living room caught my eye immediately. A generous, light-filled space with a great sense of flow, it was finished to the highest of standards. The sculptural light, curving downwards above the coffee table, was a stunning focal point with its undulations emulated in the art relief hung on the back wall. This was a scheme with space to breathe - to step back and admire all the wonderful pieces within it - and a place where every vista was curated to perfection.
