March 3, 2017

Designer Crush – Timorous Beasties I’ve had a serious crush on Timorous Beasties designs since my Interior Design study days. You may have already come across their designs, but just in case you havent, they are a predominately a fabric and wallpaper design company.

July 26, 2016

Eco Friendly Designers – Tom Raffield Today, we are all consciously aware of our environment and the detrimental effects we have on it. The knowledge that we have available to us, and the choices that we make in our day-to-day living, hopefully, mean that we are all doing our bit for future generations to come.
