Bite Size Design Tip - Decorating in One Colour

There’s no doubt that the Georgians were probably the best at creating the perfect homes to live in. Their success was born about by their attention to scale, proportion and symmetry. Whilst we may not all be fortunate enough to live in a Georgian property, we can utilise a popular trick of this era, and that is to choose ONE colour to paint our rooms in.

The Colour Edit – Red

February 13, 2017

With tomorrow being Valentines day and all, I thought it only apt to do a post, not on love itself, but the colour red that represents our celebration of love.

Obsessing Over Black

July 5, 2016

My thoughts this week are on using black within our spaces. The word ‘black’ often conjures up negative images of darkness, mourning, as well as authority and status. So it is no wonder that when contemplating a design scheme, black is not going to be an obvious choice, especially with colour trends being introduced year in, year out.
