Meet The Designers - Wilful Ink & Studio 27

There’s a reason behind my Meet The Designer posts and that is to introduce you to a whole new world of design for your homes that you may not have yet discovered. It has to be said there are some pretty damn amazing independent designers out there creating wonderful individual designs that you just won’t find on the high street.  They provide us with the opportunity to step away from the mainstream and create spaces that encourage personality, individuality and…

The Eco-Friendly Living Room & Guide

  A fresh new week has begun and all is looking rather rosy now I have my new glasses and can see properly again. Although, I have to say there was a positive side to my not writing as much with more time to daydream think about design and interiors.

Series 7™ Chair Special Edition - lala Berlin & Fritz Hansen

If you joined me last week, you’ll not have been able to miss the broken glasses saga.  I’m afraid to report that my balancing act continues as I await my new pair, which, I hasten to add, can’t arrive soon enough! Sadly this has meant my lengthier, planned posts being delayed, but I hope you’ll still enjoy today’s one because it happens to be on one of my favourite Mid-Century iconic chairs, the Series 7™ by Arne Jacobsen.   Series…

An Alternative Quick & Easy Window Treatment - Window Film

  After all the excitement of  Meeting The Designers last week, I thought we’d take a break and take a look at our windows today. The fact that I’ve happened to break my only pair of reading glasses, has also found me in a somewhat rather peculiar position of playing a game of Computer Statues. Not one I’d recommend as I’ve discovered it requires great skill balancing glasses on one’s nose and not being able to move at all. I’ll…

Meet The Designer - Linda Bloomfield - Handmade Porcelain

There’s something rather special and personable about holding a piece of pottery that’s been lovingly crafted by hand. In this instance, London-based potter, Linda Bloomfield’s beautiful contemporary designs not only captured my eye at the London Design Fair but also connected with me as a person. Their organic forms, together with Linda’s trademark dimples and visible throwing lines, just yearned for you to reach out, touch and hold them. Which is exactly what I ended up doing and more. Yep,…
