My last 3 months of interior styling

On June 4th, 2013 by .

My interior styling work for 2013 has been a bit of a shoot marathon but I have loved every minute of it.  From Look Books to magazines, short films and cook books, the work has definitely been varied!  Some of the projects have been months in the planning and have allowed me to have complete creative control, this part is very special, being able to see an idea transformed into a set and then a photo.

The first image is from the cook book we shot in Feb & March called Children’s Party Cook Book by Kyle Books.  It’s due to be published in September 2013 and so I can talk about it a lot more then.

The great team behind Children’s Party Cook Book.Vicky, Hatty, Bella, Jemma, and Dee! Thank you also to my two assistants Abi & Eleanor.  We had a very tight schedule but it was made so much easier with such a creative team.  I can’t wait to see this one on the shelves, only a few more months to wait!

I went straight from the book shoot onto Asda A/W – 13 moodboards in total.  I am now an Asda specialist! Some fab products on offer this season and at some amazing prices, you won’t believe it’s Asda….

Trend: Futuristic Interiors

On April 22nd, 2013 by .

‘Futuristic Interiors’ was the subject of my trend prediction article, which I wrote for a magazine back in June 2012,  almost one year on, we are starting to see this forecast come to light.  Below is a copy of my original article, along with snapshots  from the two magazines who covered the story at the weekend.  If you want to see the full version of my article click this Zest Media link and go to page 55.

My article
Think clean lines, teamed with soft organic shapes on a backdrop of white; and this is the futuristic look that is becoming a firm favourite with designers around the globe.  Fashion collections for Spring/Summer 2012 saw world renowned designers, dressing their models with ‘space-age’ clothes and alien inspired hairstyles, whilst architects and interior designers are having fun with white sci-fi style spaces, teamed with splashes of punchy neon.

“Futuristic Interiors continue to gain momentum as consumers interpret them as cutting-edge and ahead of competitors. Businesses that can incorporate minute elements of sci-fi style will automatically be more likely to be perceived as innovative and effective at pushing boundaries.” Armida Ascano, Trend Hunter.

One designer that is known and loved for producing this style is Pierre Paulin, with his best example being the Ribbon chair, created in 1966.  A beautiful sculptural design, which takes on the appearance of a spaceship and from the 1960s to the present day, has never ceased to be modern.

At a time when everyone is watching the pennies, it is no surprise that we are embracing a refreshing and simplistic style, which is not only achievable but also affordable.

Get the look

Kitchen
For a space-age look, combine curved units in a white gloss finish with bright LED cabinet lights, a great way to illuminate and display modern kitchenware.  Extra drama has been created by hanging a contemporary pendant light over the work surface.

Living room
A graphic feature wall has been created with a white cubic shelving system, a stark contrast to the soft textures of the rug.  The stylish angular chairs in slate grey and mustard make a confident statement whilst adding warmth.

Wall art
Graphic furniture has been combined with a unique and innovative, colourful decorative motif concept. Each piece is bicolour (double-sided), and comes in a choice of 3 options. Whether placed on the ground, fixed to a wall (a wall fixing system is supplied with each pack) or suspended from the ceiling via 2 rails (priced separately), they produce a unique tri-dimensional effect that is reminiscent of flying saucers!

Dining room
The white furniture in futuristic shapes work well together, with wave plates and ribbon style chairs, the look has a soft fluidity about it.  The lighting has been carefully considered with a delicate ceramic pendent suspended directly above the dining table.

Bathroom
The organic shape of the bathroom unit has been mirrored by this vermilion colored stool.  It’s a great example of simple design with dramatic impact.

Furniture
Clean lines, geometric shapes that often take on the look of a spaceship; a good example is Ligne Rosets Pumpkin chair.

Lighting
Often made from new materials and structures, futuristic lighting has a firm place within modern interiors, lighting up and transforming any contemporary décor.

Wallpaper
Futuristic wallpaper along with graphic geometric shapes, has been trending for a few years.  It looks most effective hung on one wall to create a stylish focal point.  Sanderson have just launched a range called Concord, a graphic design in a range of colour options.

Laura Ashley Spring/Summer 2013

On November 29th, 2012 by .

I can’t believe it’s been 3 weeks since my last post!!  I have been feeling so anxious that I haven’t be able to write anything!  This is the problem when a big job comes in, radio silence on the blog…Anyhow, I’m back (until the next shoot!) and wanted to share with you some of the gorgeous products from all of the Spring/Summer 2013 press shows; starting with the lovely Laura Ashley.

All of the images below are from the Bloomsbury range, a pattern originally launched in 1987 and adapted to todays trends.  For me, this was the collection that stood out the most at the press show, it’s colorful, fresh and exciting and is sure to be a hit.  Away with the beige and in with the colour!
