Often the first thing to make an impression when someone walks into your house is the hallway - an often overlooked space. I mean it is a transient space after all so it’s not like you’re spending loads of time there, but that’s no reason to neglect it! Funk it up, get wild with tiles or paint, add some fun storage solutions or interesting lighting. There is so much that can be done and it doesn’t have to be expensive. Perhaps a DIY project for this coming Easter Weekend?

There is something very satisfying about this house. It’s my structured architectural side coming out and I love it! The textures, the straight lines, the feeling of openness and the landscape planting tops it off. Brilliant.

Lighting has to be one of my favourite aspects to my job. Not designing lighting plans, that can get tedious (however being a geek I actually quite like it even though it does get tedious…) but the pieces themselves, whether it’s a pendant light, table lamp, wall sconce or other. I just think there is so much that can be added by these little beauties. Good lighting should be layered but no one said it had to be invisible or boring! I say be daring and make a feature of your lighting choices.

A shot from the book Icelandic Interiors by Home & Delicious. That bookcase looks like it’s struggling to breathe but I like it! On a side note - Iceland intrigues me. It’s on my hit list of places to visit mostly because I want to do the Thermal Baths and see the Aurora Borealis (well the northern lights are also on my bucket list so might as well get the baths in whilst I’m at it eh?). Anyone fancy a trip this/next year??

And another from that fab apartment in Moscow. I want this hallway! I love the floors, they have so much movement in them. The whole thing is sharp, contemporary and finished. Very Cool.

On the face of it this bedroom looks quite sweet & feminine, but take a closer look. This person is definitely harbouring some darker issues…….. The choice of word proudly displayed over the bed for one and that baseball bat next to the bed? (I mean seriously? The only reason one has a baseball bat next to the bed is to beat the living sh*t out of intruders or worse….your sleeping partner…..) and lastly the black skull. Imagine opening your eyes to see that staring at you every morning. Dark man, just dark.

Well well well, look what I found?! It looks slightly different here but it is in fact the same flat I posted about here, here & here - designed by my friend Kristina Johansson. This shot made the cover of Swedish Elle Interiors back in December and quite rightly too! isn’t it awesome?! For more info on Kristina you can check out her website Mimunio.

I love the mix of copper & minty sage green in this image. It’s very refreshing and calming. One of things I’ve put a lot of thought into is my kitchen - I mean, there are so many different directions you can go in and for me it’s such a fundamental part of the house that it will inevitably dictate a lot of how the rest of the place will look. Although I am pretty convinced I’m going to go darker the combo above it definitely one to consider.

Funday Sunday! and indeed it has been so far - morning brekky with good friends followed by the flower market and shortly I’m off to a open house hosted by the wonderful Alex MaCarthur. I blogged about her not long ago here. But before I jet I just wanted to say how cool are those floors?? I mean not my colour palette at all but who cares? They are fab and daring! Kudos to these folks for taking a risk with such a heavy pattern because it paid off. Paid off well.

Happy Saturday! What’s the verdict? Do we like the bright neon or not? I think it’s fun and bold but I’m not sure I could live with it for long. Thing is, when it comes to paint the best part about it is that it’s easy to change! All the more reason to experiment.

I take it back……I’m over my interiors fatigue as I have fallen for this bedroom. Actually, I’m pretty sure I’ve blogged this before but who cares! it deserves to be seen again. I want this. I literally want allll of this.

Is there such a thing as Interiors Fatigue? It might be just because I eat, sleep and breathe interiors but recently I’ve been struggling to find images that really inspire me. So I’m putting it down to overload. With spring on the way there are sure to be some fab new interior shots. I do however like this pendant light. Very cool.

Interior Designer. Images I collect which I love. It might only be a part of an image, a single object or the composition, but each has something that I am drawn to.
