Introducing Paula Beades Bespoke

On July 11th, 2014 by .

I am thrilled to share with you these beautiful memory blankets, handmade by my good friend Paula, from Paula Beades Bespoke. The colourful eiderdowns have been created using all of my children’s old clothes that were too precious to giveaway, each piece unlocks a story and holds a special place in my heart.

The girls have one each and are absolutely thrilled with them, hopefully they will stay with them as they grow up and be treasured (rather than trashed!) Thank you so much Paula, you are one talented lady!

Also shown below is selection of Paula other designs ranging from jean bags, fairy wings (which are gorgeous) stools, cushions, blinds, curtains and other creative pieces. If you would like to commission Paula Beades Bespoke, please email her directly at: paulabeades@yahoo.co.uk.

Crown paints: Geo style

On May 12th, 2014 by .

With the interiors world going crazy for Geo patterns, it is no wonder that the main paint houses, including Crown Paints, are keen to show you how to apply this technic to your walls.  It is a fresh and dynamic design style and as you can see from the image below, not just for modern homes. The shot has been created with thought and skill; the muted pastel palette sits well with the luxurious velvet chair, whilst the dark furniture and accessories add contrast and drama.  What do you think?  Is it a look for you?

To create this look, make sure you plan out your colour scheme and find a way to bring the look together with the rest of your furniture and accessories.  Crown paints have incorporated their colours and pattern with the geo cushion and balanced out the pink tones with some pretty flowers.

Introducing Paint by Conran

On April 10th, 2014 by .

One of the worlds best-known designers and someone that I have admired throughout my career, has launched his own paint collections; Paint by Conran. Sir Terence Conran, founder of Habitat in the 60′s, revolutionised interiors bringing modern design into the home for the first time.  To add to this acclaim, he also has his architecture empire ‘Conran and Partners’ as well his shops, restaurants and award-winning London hotel. For me, Terence oozes effortless style, Conran products have always been functional yet aesthetically pleasing, designer items that look cutting edge but still sit comfortably within a family home.

His paint collections are influenced by five beautiful landscapes, with each range allowing you to mix and match your colour schemes.  Take a look at his site for the full collection as I am sure you will be seeing a lot of this paint in all the magazines over the next few months, I can’t wait to try it.
