My Paint Colour of the Month – Farrow & Ball Stiffkey Blue

I recently took stock of the numerous items of unpainted furniture that were cluttering up my life and business and decided to take action, deciding on blue as a starting point colour, primarily as it's a favourite of mine but also because I have it on good authority (Colour Curator, Joa Studholme, no less!) that...

Paint it, don’t bin in!

This blasted pandemic and subsequent lockdown madness/inconvenience has resulted in an increase of people opting to upcycle/renovate their furniture, rather than buy new.

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 →
