My year in review – 2020. The year the world came to a stop!

There's certainly not a lot of good that can be said about 2020! The year none of us saw coming and one that all of us are wishing not to repeat. (Although, at this moment in time, from where I'm sitting 2021 is still looking very '2020') I'm aware I managed to go yet another... Continue Reading →

My Year in Review – 2019

Well, the first month of the new decade, 2020, is almost up - time has been a bit of a misnomer for me through 2019 until now and I've just realised how little I managed to get on the keyboard to upkeep my blog for such a very long time. 2019 was a busy year... Continue Reading →

Colour of the Month – Teal

Photo courtesy of Instagram.com/the_painted_bird Teal is a colour that is taking the interior design world by storm. Relatively unknown and unused until recently, these days teal is big news. It is said the name for teal originates from the teal duck, which has this colour around its eyes. A mix of blue and green, but... Continue Reading →

Colour of the Month – Coral

It's March and that means, theoretically, Spring should be with us soon. And who isn't looking forward to that?!

My thoughts took me to the colour... Continue Reading →

A Cabinet Worthy of Your Vote

I've recently been working on upcycling an old television cabinet into a trendy and stylish drinks cabinet. Drinks cabinets have a chequered, interesting history in the world of furniture - if any a piece of furniture could talk to tell a tale! Drinks cabinets are synonymous with 1970's and 80's middle class England where, following... Continue Reading →

Colour of the month – Bronze

OK, perhaps bronze isn't a 'colour' as such - it comes in many different subtle hues - but in keeping with the current trend for metallics used in interior design, I thought making it my colour of the month just felt right. Photo courtesy of amyreb_kb (Instagram) Bronze is a warm metal, which is tactile... Continue Reading →

Patience is a golden virtue

Towards the end of 2018 I got some work in that was exciting and different, but never have I had a commission that has caused me such an emotional rollercoaster. Don't get me wrong, the ultimate resulting emotion was one of joy and pride, particularly when my lovely client sent me lots of beautiful photos... Continue Reading →

Colour of the Month – Silver

Most of us incorporate silver into our interior design schemes, often without even being aware of it - think taps, mirrors, door handles, cutlery - although that is often an unconscious decision of simple practicality. Others really embrace this adaptable and beautiful hue into their homes, with intent, passion and flare. With the recent trend... Continue Reading →

Metallics

Incorporating metallic into your interior design scheme is easier than ever right now.  Years ago those metallic touches were confined to the taps and mirrors, but these days there's barely a surface which cannot be metallicised and made to look good for it. The choices of metals and shades available are numerous and the beauty... Continue Reading →

My Year in Review – 2018

It's almost over folks, another year down and it's been quite a remarkable year in so many ways.  It has, as ever, flown by at an ever increasing rate.  Our climate and weather continued to baffle, amuse, entertain and exasperate us, giving us The Beast from The East at the beginning of the year, followed...
