  1. The Power of Purple

    The Power of Purple
    Purple is a colour that can inform the atmosphere of a room. Often associated with royalty and power, different shades can create a different feeling within a space. The darker shades have a bold presence, bluer shades create a calm feeling while bold red shades are likely to attract more attention. Even a lighter lavender colour can give a room...

  5. Monochrome Monday

    Monochrome Monday
    Monochrome is a great interior trend that never goes out of style and its versatility means you can always add new pieces. My best advice for black and white is that just because it's minimal colour, you don't have to follow the minimalist theme. Go for it and add lots of print and pattern, try mixing up different textures and...
  6. Pretty In Pantone

    Pretty In Pantone
    Pink is the new neutral. With each new year, comes fresh colour pallets and this year pink is making a big comeback. We’re talking a soft, pastel blush pink, that adds a warmth to the room.  On walls or soft furnishings it becomes both subtle and sophisticated.

    Industrial Inspiration
    Some of the best inspiration for your interior is where you least expect it.

Metal products teamed with our signature geometric prints - perfect for an industrial inspired kitchen. We love the copper splash backs, exposed lighting and contemporary metal...

    A stylish headboard can really make a room sing, and I'm starting to fall in love with oversized statement headboards. These giant headboards (often seen in hotels) have got me wondering if it's too much to want one in the home? Too flashy or just plain cool, what do you think?

    Deco off and Maison et Objet
    Jane and I escaped the post Christmas blues and hopped on the Eurostar to visit Paris Design week last month. First stop was Deco Off, walking around the streets of Paris visiting design houses in their permanent or temporary showrooms. Day two was Maison et Object, 8 vast halls of product to peruse, and we didn't even manage to get...
