Fashion Africa

If you follow me on Pinterest you’ll have seen my ‘tantalising textiles’ board and have figured out that I have a real ‘thang’ for textiles. Lots of colours? Yes. Graphic and bold prints? Definitely. Made in, or inspired by the African continent? Absolutely. Year on year, fashion designers incorporate fabrics and colours into their collections […]

The August Break 2014

Holy smokes yes – yes August is here! I know I’m not the only one shocked to the core that we’re eight months into the year, so I won’t bang on about it… too much. While people are jetting off on their hols, or downing tools for a few weeks, I am not going anywhere. […]

AGA City60

Have you ever admired the beauty and craftsmanship of an AGA cooker, only to remember that you don’t have a farmyard sized kitchen to put it in?

Dulux Visualizer App

I’m sure we can all agree that the toughest part of decorating (or redecorating) a space is usually picking paint colours. First off you have a million and one shades to choose from. Then you have the finish to think about. Chances are you’ll buy a bouquet of tester pots (that’s what they’re for right?), […]

Seen it… want it

They always say (you know ‘them’), that simple ideas are the best. I think they’re right… whoever they are. Check out this sleek and super simple Lapp iPad stand from Griffin + Sinclair.     Made from solid oak and handmade in the Midlands, the oak gets cut and then laminated together – this forms […]

Seen it… want it

Talk about your statement chair. There is nothing about this that I don’t like. Such curvaceous goodness, beautifully bold and so inviting.   As much as I want to just sit and look at it, it’s also crying out to be lounged on. I’m pretty sure you’d need a hoist to get me up out […]

Pip Prinsloo

As part of John Lewis‘ recent ‘Design Insider’ Week and coinciding with the launch of their new Croft Collection, I was lucky enough to get to spend some time with the Head of John Lewis’ Home Design Studio, Pip Prinsloo. Almost a year to the day that Pip started working at John Lewis we talked […]

MADE.COM and Print Club London

Collaborations aren’t a new thing, of course not – they happen all the time, but when I heard about this one I actually said ‘YES, this makes sense!’. Two of my favourites MADE.COM and Print Club London have come together and created a fab collection of accessible, original art.     Every time I visit […]

Garden parties

I’m all about socialising and if there’s food and drink involved, all the better! At the mo I’m day dreaming about warm (ok hot) afternoons turning into warm evenings when I can sit in my garden, ‘take tea’ then sip cocktails with my ladies. The fact that my garden is a an absolute disgrace right […]
