    Art @ Home....styling
    We saw some great things at the Affordable art fair....my favourite? A stunning yellow painting by Jeremy Sharma (Scintilla (Summerwell) #1). It's gorgeous, wouldn't this make you feel happy whatever the weather? And, as this is an interiors blog.... how to decorate with Art: a few mood boards and room sets below to give an indication of how we would...

    Art @ Home – Getting Started
    We're getting excited for the opening of the Affordable Art Fair tonight. A few weekends back we caught up with our friend and gallerist Tolla Duke who runs Give Art Space . Give Art has a mission to make great art accessible, sounds a bit like our Korla mission with interiors. We talked to Tolla about how intimidated people can...

    Bunny Turner's Beautiful House
    Bunny Turner's house is featured in this month's House and Garden magazine (on the cover no less...) and of course we are THRILLED that she chose some Korla lumbar cushions in Blue Bhutan Lattice for her guest bedroom. The ultimate compliment. Thank you Bunny! We love your home - especially the modernist cube kitchen/dining extension, such an elegant and simple contrast to the...

    Korla Hearts vintage furniture stores
    UPCYCLE is today's mantra. We thought we were onto a good thing, and indeed we were, but we weren't sure we were ready to share it with the world. But a posting by those ever-clever Honeycombers and with loads of followers on Facebook…we'd be kidding ourselves to think it's our little secret. Hock Siong & Co is every thing they're cracked...
  5. White Brick Walls

    White Brick Walls
    There is something about white brick walls that is pleasing. Contemporary yet retro, calming but colourful, chic but not precious. Liveable. All are top priorities for Korla designs.  How delighted we were, therefore, to find ourselves mentioned in a blog, called, (can you guess?....) White.Brick.Walls The blog is about all things designy that make WS happy.  Our cushions did, in their...
  6. Chair Revival

    Chair Revival
    We love a 'before and after'. Like the TV programmes where you get your teeth whitened and a haircut and look 25 years younger.  Here's MC's fabulous revamp and revival of a chair that was need of some love and Korla style. The chair was found at Hock Siong (that treasure trove of 2nd hand stuff) and we upholstered it in our...

    Sunny Living
    Emily kindly sent us these photos of her sitting room. On her twin chairs she's used Kyoto Koi in Jean Blue, and on the Grey sofa and ottoman she has a mix of Bhutan Lattice (cornflower blue) and Phoenix Dusk.  Mixing and matching Korla style.

    Last sun before Halloween
    I am obsessed with these non-glazed tiles in the bathroom at Singapore's Tanjong Beach Club - super duper cool. (And check out the ladies loo door panel. So retro-tastic).   Designed by Takenouchi Webb the club is a concrete box sitting behind 4 palm trees, with sliding shutters whose slanted slats are a clever echo of the palm fronds on the...
  9. My new swivel tubs...

    My new swivel tubs...
    It's been a wait, but they are here. We will shoot them soon, all made up and beautiful, but here is a sneak peak of the pair being road tested by the monsters. The design is a kind of Milo Baughman mix tape: inspired by a couple of things I saw on 1stdibs (love that site) and Talisman London. I...

    Hann's House
    Interior Designer Emma Hann sent us these photos of her new home in Perth. We are loving the mix and match with Florence Broadhurst's Japanese Floral (from Signature Prints Australia) and the reverse of our Bhutan Lattice Noir is in a very now Hound's tooth check.  Emma is at emmahannid@gmail.com.
