The London Sofa by FBC London

19th December 2016

During a private tour of the Pimlico Road Design District last week I was introduced to the team at FBC London. Their shop on Pimlico Road is filled with a carefully edited collection that represents the FBC design ethos. From beautiful ceramics, to furniture, vases, incredible lighting and a lot more, but there’s one piece in particular that I locked eyes on, the London Sofa. This sofa has the perfect curves, just enough to make it feel contemporary, but still functional.…

I first met Julia at LuxuryMade in September, the fresh design of her collection caught my eye. It’s not often that an architect designs a furniture collection, so I was of course very interested to learn more about Julia Von Werz as well as her her first pop-up shop coming soon to London. “After showcasing my collection in London for the first time at the LuxuryMade show during LDF, I received a phenomenal response and so I am delighted to…

Peacock chairs, duck feet lamps, Zebra’s and Juju hats, all set against a dark background with the occasional plant thrown in and a hint of gold every now and then. It’s unmistakably Rockett St George, the fabulous online store that nearly all designers go to find unique and fun pieces. But this my dear readers, is Rockett St George come to life, and what better surrounding than the 4th floor of Liberty. As you walk in you are presented with the…

Trend Alert: Retro Remix, geometric colour block

22nd May 2016
geometric colour block dulux retro remix

I’ve seen Retro Remix, the new colour forecast by Dulux Australia popping up all over the web. It’s a bold new version of the colour blocking trend that we saw a few years ago. Dulux Retro Remix trend has more emphasis on strong geometric shapes and clashing colours from the 60’s and 70’s. Taking inspiration from the 60’s and 70’s when colour and pattern began to appear in our homes and products were starting to be made in new materials…

Flair Florence; and what is the future of interior design retail?

14th May 2016
Flair Florence

Unfortunately there aren’t many interior shops that really grab my attention, London does have a large range to choose from, but it’s more a case of buying bits and pieces from different shops scattered all over town. But during my recent visit to Florence, I was introduced to a shop called Flair as it was where Silia retail some of their products, and this visit helped to give me a new perspective on shopping for interiors. The last recession really took it’s…

FAQ Interior Styling

FAQ: I want to restyle my home, where do I start? Over the past week I have been asked this question about 10 times, both online and offline, “I want to restyle my home, where do I start“. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, and will say it again in the future. You always have to start with a plan. I know that we don’t enjoy sitting down and planning, we’d much rather just head to the shops and fill…

Only buy things you love

Living-Room-Set-Up-OKA

My best friend and I were having a chat about her home this past weekend. She lives in a smart studio in West London. It’s a small space but she’s done some great things with it. I’m always surprised at the amount of furniture she can fit into the small space. We often laugh because I like to go around and help her ‘edit’ her clutter whether she likes it or not. And we have many stories about our decluttering exercises.…

Shop: The Nautical interior accessories edit

Nautical Interiors Accessories Edit Numbered

I’ve been noticing the blue interiors trend popping up on the high street.  Blue is traditionally used in a nautical scheme.  While I love the Nautical scheme, it’s execution is often not very sophisticated.  However, things seem to have changed, and I’m loving these well designed Nautical interior accessories that can very easily be incorporated into your space.  These are also the perfect gifts for upcoming Father’s day. 1. Teacup and saucer from Anthropologie’s From The Deep range. I love how…
