I regularly talk about interior design, interior design brands and interior designers here on Interior Style Hunter.

Stylists work with existing products and designs to style and enhance a space whilst designers create products from scratch. The purpose…

Interior Style Hunter interviews Peter Humphrey & Louisa Blackmore of Humphrey Munson

In the last few years, Humphrey Munson has leapt to the forefront of the British kitchen industry with their contemporary take on classic English design. Eschewing the usual kitchen design company format with sales teams and display-only showrooms, Humphrey Munson have blazed a trail with their design led approach and live kitchen spaces at their showrooms in St. Albans, Hertfordshire and Felsted, Essex, so much so that walking into a showroom feels like walking into a real home. I caught…

Peter Linnett Sculptures

12th July 2017

I was recently introduced to the work of sculptor extraordinaire Peter Linnett. Peter is based in London and worked for many, many years in antique restoration and this has probably been the biggest influence on his work. He creates functional sculpture, meaning that you can use it as furniture, but they are truly pieces of art. Linnett uses materials that age with dignity and even goes as far to say he welcomes the ageing process as these add to the…

A few weeks ago I was invited to meet Michelle Mone. Quite daunting I have to admit, we were to discuss Michelle’s new venture into the interior design sector. We all know Michelle Mone as the supreme entrepreneur who founded Ultimo, the iconic lingerie company, and then sold it a few years ago after building a team of 63000. Michelle’s incredible achievements have also earned her the title, Baroness of Mayfair. So it was very appropriate to be heading to…

Living in Blue, The Interior Style Hunter Roomset at the House and Garden Festival

20th June 2017

It was so great to be invited back to the House and Garden Festival for a second time around. Last year it was all about neutrals and glamour so I thought that this year it should be all about colour. My favourite colour and a colour I often wear and use is blue. I wanted to explore the concepts of living in blue by immersing myself into a space that’s richly coloured. I’ve specifically attempted to match the walls and…
