I’ve already written a post on how to choose […]

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.

2020 – the year of home. And yes, that’s my very positive spin on a, frankly, INSANE few months, which have been both astounding and catastrophic in equal measure.

All this aside, 2019's arguably hottest 'trend' - 'Mixed Materials' - is far from flighty.

As an interior designer, I’m well versed in grey. Grey walls, grey floors,  grey furniture. Not if I can help it, mind you, as I always encourage my clients to allow some warmth and depth into their schemes – it’s just better that way; more homely. Pink has long been a stellar way to achieve […]
