September 19, 2017

Regardless of what’s in or out in the interiors world, there’s no doubt that marble has grown in popularity over the past few years and it looks set to stay for a few more yet. Today I thought we’d take a closer look at this marvellous natural material for our homes.   Marble – The Ongoing Home Trend   Favoured since the Roman times’ marble was, and has been, a statement of wealth.

The New Art Deco & Art Nouveau Modern Style

  Don’t you just love a good whodunnit? My all time favourite has to be Agatha Christie’s, Poirot. Not only because I like to work on my detective skills (essential for when tracking down odd socks), but because of the interior delights of the period in which it was set. Such an elegant, glamorous and luxurious era, I’ve been an admirer of Art Deco for many years. But today we’re not just looking at some fab modern Art Deco style…

Affordable, Versatile & Stylish Flooring - Vinyl Is King

  Sometimes what we’d like to have is mostly outweighed by how much we can actually afford. Looking at alternatives that are easier on the pocket, especially when you’re starting out or on a budget, can be your only choice in the matter. What’s great today compared to when I bought my first flat 26ish years ago is that going cheaper doesn’t necessarily mean you have to lack on style either. Flooring can be hugely expensive, so I thought we’d take…

100 YEARS OF ITALIAN DESIGN WITH HEALS

  Like many of you, I’m off on one of our summer breaks, and because time somehow caught up with me, it was either pack or write. The packing won as you’d expect as somehow I don’t the family wouldn’t have appreciated holidaying in their birthday suits.  So from sheer lack of time and unfinished writings, I thought I’d share this post I was asked to write for Heals at the beginning of this year. If you’re a new follower you…

Botanical Wallpapers & How To use Them

  You know you’re kind of obsessed with botanicals when your latest acquisition happens to be a dress that’s covered in banana leaves.  The I.E. hubs may think I’ve gone a bit bonkers, but then he doesn’t really pay that much attention to interiors and fashion world so I’m ignoring the “It’s err very green darling” comment. In the meantime, until I find somewhere to wear it, I’m going to imagine myself sipping cocktails with Club Tropicana playing in the background…..…

The Importance Of Rugs & How To Use Them

June 13, 2017

I see rugs for our homes as shoes are to a well-dressed outfit. You wouldn’t go to the trouble of selecting your best outfit for a night out and then go barefooted. It’s the same principle with rugs. Shoes complete an outfit and, in some instances, will actually outshine what you’re wearing, if you want them to that is. It’s the same with rugs. They can be a game changer on how a room looks and feels.  Rugs can either…
