    London Living
    I went to visit this house near Portobello last week. The property was a shell when they bought it, with only the outer walls and the inner winding staircase remaining. A huge project. The only camera I had with me was my iphone (so apologies about these less than spectacular photos). Now I am itching to get back and shoot...
  3. Summer Summer

    Summer Summer
    It's thrilling not to be wearing socks!  Lying in the garden all weekend I was thinking about how we should dress our homes like we dress ourselves. When the sun comes out and we store away the woolly jumpers and winter coats, couldn't we also get out the summer cushions for the sofa or even put a new blind on...
  4. Emeralds For Ever....

    Emeralds For Ever....
    One of the most powerful things I saw last year was the "A Bigger Picture" Hockney exhibition at the Royal Academy.  Maybe it was his lush colourful depictions of the Yorkshire landscape that led Pantone to name Emerald the colour of the year for 2013... I thought I'd post up some of our favourite green inspiration, alongside Korla's extensive Emerald collection.  First...

    Kyoto Koi Tropicana
    Look how lovely Kyoto Koi in mushroom looks made up into a central ottoman/pouffe. It works well with the marble floor, raffia chairs and hessian rug.

    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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. Kids Haven

    Kids Haven
    Time to showcase the Blue House International's children's atelier. This is the most incredible playspace for kids that Korla has decorated, and now, (drum roll) it is open. YEY. We tried it out with the youngest two Korla Monsters this week, and loved every second. It's amazing to see a room of toddlers all  exploring and involved with a hum...
