Posted by on Jun 19, 2014 in Uncategorized | No Comments

For the lucky people who are going on holiday in the summer, thinking about a room in your house is most probably the last thing on your mind.  However I am always inspired by a trip away, I love experiencing different cultures, trying new foods, people watching and being inspired creatively by their surroundings both outside […]

Escape Outdoors

Posted by on Jun 17, 2014 in Uncategorized | No Comments

We have been having some great weather of late and I am sure once you have finished work or at the weekend you have been trying as much as possible to escape outdoors and get some well needed rays.  I have been doing a bit of work outside, nothing major, just planting some things and […]

I really enjoy styling events and was lucky enough to be asked to style a pop-up prosecco bar for  local company Aitken Wines an independent wine specialist who are celebrating 140 years in the business.  It is definitely a challenge to create something special for just one night, as always budget was limited and it needed to […]

I am in the processes of changing my hallway, again.  I did it fairly quickly when I first moved in as I couldn’t cope any longer with the existing burgundy and pink pinstripe wallpaper. However it was always one of the spaces I had earmarked to go back to, as was never quite happy with […]

Wonder wall

I have been asked a lot recently about wallpaper:  What are the benefits of wallpapering, and if so is it acceptable to just paper one wall? What other creative ways can I use wallpaper in interiors? Where can I source interesting wallpapers? Wallpaper is a great way to add pattern and texture and intrigue to walls […]
