East London Street Art

On June 23rd, 2009 by .

Living and working in East London means I am constantly surrounded by the colourful artwork that adorns the streets and buildings of Bethnal Green and Shoreditch.  For someone who has an appreciation of art, design and illustration; I love it and for that reason I wanted to share my favourite pics with you!

A lot of th paintings are humorous, often ridiculing the police or current affairs and politics. This is a trate of Banksy and you can see an example of his work below.    Don’t get me wrong, I am a big Banksy fan but sometimes he can be talked about a little too much.  So for that reason, it's good to see so many other artists staking there claim on the fine buildings of east London.Banksy

Guest writer Oliver Heath

Pippa Jameson Interiors has teamed up with Interiors expert Oliver Heath to provide 5 essential tips on selling a home in a recession. Over the coming weeks we will advice you on what to do and not to do when preparing your home for sale. These are tough times that we are facing, especially if you are in the position of trying to sell your home in a market that has collapsed. That said, there are still buyers out there but just not as many. For this reason your home has to really hit the mark when it comes to presentation.

“You want to leave potential buyers with a sense that the property has been well maintained and looked after so that that they don’t get the sinking feeling that as soon as they move in there’ll be lots of things that need doing”.

PART 1: DECLUTTERING

There is nothing that puts of a buyer more than clutter! Even though you may adore your little collection of porcelain cats and dogs I can guarantee that your buyer will not. Things that are personal to you mean nothing at all to a buyer; harsh but true. So put away all the little nik naks that are lying around and invest in some good storage. If you have things rammed into overflowing cupboards it is going to look like the house is too small to cater for your belongings and give the impression of being cramped. (more…)

Colour Blocking trend for 2009/2010...continued

On June 15th, 2009 by .

  Back in January 2009 I posted trend predictions for 2009/2010.  One of the stories I wrote about was ‘Colour blocking’ and how it would start off as a fashion trend and then slowly filter down into the interiors market.  Well, I have just attended  the Exclusively Housewares trade show at The Business Design Centre where there was a huge selection of gorgeous homeware accessories and ‘Colour blocking’  a plenty’!Kitsch, Pippa Jameson Interiors

My first example is from a stylish homware company called Jospeh Joseph.  They have a brilliant range of user freindly kitchenware (available through John Lewis). I’d say it was a cross between Paul Smith and Alessi-gorgeous!  They range from brightly coloured chopping boards through to a set of vibrant magnetic measurung spoons.  We have just bought one of their bright glass chopping boards for home.
