I’ve spent the last week working on kids room designs and this image is strangely appropriate and on cue with its beaded panelling, Serge Mouille wall lights & neon sign. Rather liking the sheep too, however bright white for a kids room? That’s a brave choice!

I’ve been thinking a lot about my kitchen recently. It’s such a vital part of the house in terms of layout and aesthetically that I really want to get it right. Obviously I’m going for that whole contemporary/period mix, but with so much choice out there it’s hard to narrow down to even what materials I want to use! and don’t even get me started on colours…… Clearly I need to give this some more thought……

Here’s hoping that one day my hallway will look this finished…….

Without a doubt one of my favourite dealers in the UK is Alex MaCarthur. Over the years she has developed and created a look that is so strong and unique. She specialises in finding all those pieces you wish you had and more and the best part (in my opinion) is her showroom. She has an achingly beautiful four story Regency Townhouse which has been converted into her showroom. Each floor is carefully curated and put together in a way that lets the customer visualise what a piece might look like in situ. She is ahead of her time in regards to this concept and has perfected it into an art. Can you tell I have a major girl crush? I want her life……

A little bit of retro for you today. I love the globes and in fact I really like the dark floors against that pale washed out sea blue walls. Hmmmm perhaps one to try for my flat?

For those of you who are collectors there is an upcoming sale that you simply can’t miss. Les Trois Garcons are auctioning off many of their collected treasures on the 5th March at Christies. Anyone want the Unicorn Heads?

Not usually something I’d post but i’m loving the combination of the oversized mantel piece, art work and bertoia chairs!

An oldie but a goodie. I’m in love with the scale of this room and the ceiling details!

Ooooo Lilac! Yep I’m still in my lilac phase I’m afraid. I’m sure that subconsciously all this colour craving means something……. and funnily enough a very pale lilac is something I’m currently testing out on my walls at home. I’m thinking of painting the underside of the stairs or the kitchen ceiling in this luscious yet subtle colour. I’ll let you know how it turns out……

Oddly this image pretty much sums up my taste right now…..clean walls, midcentury pieces, taxidermy, vintage mirrors, cacti/succulents, brass & chevron. All that’s missing is a dark dramatic wall. What the? is this person a mind reader?. Amazeballs.

I love the simplicity of this. Everything contemporary is sharp and set against the old beamed ceiling.

Not one to usually promote concrete floors, mainly because they come with issues (cracking mostly) but this one - this one is good. I mean talk about polished?! I actually think it’s coated with a lacquer. Good choice.

It’s the weekend!! This week has been a blur and I’m looking forward to taking things a little slower. I’m going to declutter my house (which actually sounds pretty stressful - Woosaaaaa, just breathe) but I’m aiming to have a minimal, clear space like the hallway above. It’s a perfect blank canvas.

Sometimes concrete can work so well.

Sometimes the lines between what’s real and not real can get a little blurred, much like this picture. What you say? It’s just a picture of a unkempt bed! Yes it is but it’s not real. It’s a very good 3D rendering or visual. As in - none of it is real. The whhhole thing is fabricated. For the most part I can still (just about) pic out these sneaky 3D visuals but they are getting harder and harder to identify. I’ll admit it, I was fooled by this one. For more of these impressive visuals check out Juraj Talcik.
