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…

May 2, 2017

It appears that we are ditching the wardrobe in favour of the The Clothes Rail when it comes to storing our clothes.  The question is are your brave enough to have your clothes on display? Personally, being a clothes, shoes AND bag lover, I’m not sure I’d want it all on show, but then that’s probably because I wouldn’t want the OH to know the extent of my hoard!   There are positives to ditching the wardrobe and looking to the clothes rail as…

  Last week on Instagram, a friend and fellow Interior Designer, W Interior Concepts based in China, posted an image of waterproof wallpaper. Yep, you read that right waterproof, as in shower proof! I have been completely smitten by it ever since.   This Wet System™ wallpaper has been developed by Wall and Deco, an Italian company. It not only combines waterproof properties of liquid membranes but is also highly decorative wall finish for damp environments such as bathrooms and shower rooms.…

February 27, 2017

  A photo below popped up on my feed on Instagram a few days ago, and I was instantly inspired by how Ashley from Little Glass Jar upcycled this cool Tolix style stool into a bedside table. Who would have thought a stool could look this good in a bedroom space.   There’s a natural tendency for us to shop for furniture made specifically for certain rooms. Today’s post is to inspire you to think outside that box, have a little fun and add some personality…
