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.

Make way for George Home

On April 22nd, 2014 by .

Have you seen the new collection by George Home?  The style, quality and price will be sure to rival other high street brands. I know this as I worked with Asda at the Style Consultant for the launch of this George Home catalogue, alongside the very talented Alwyn Human who is the Style Director at Hanger Seven.  It’s fantastic to finally see the fab George Home products in store and hard to believe that we are now hard at work on the A/W collection!

The Riviera trend from George Home include all the key pastel colours for this season.  My favourite item has to be the Calypso throw for just £15.

Bright Bazaar - debut book!

On April 15th, 2014 by .

I bought a copy of Mollie Makes magazine last week as my fellow blogger and author, Will Taylor,  mentioned that his super stylish home was going to be featured. The article is to coincide with the launch of his fantastic debut Bright Bazaar book, where Will shows you how to use colour in an intelligent and user-friendly way.  It’s available to buy through Amazon now, and if you haven’t bought it already then what are you waiting for!  Image below by Andrew Boyd

Above is a picture of Wills office space, combining a mix of old and new pieces.  The weathered table sits quite comfortably with his modern accessories and it’s his fresh pastel palette that pulls it all together.  This is a common thread throughout Wills work, he is so passionate about colour and manages to articulate his expertise in such a friendly and conversational way.  This relaxed journalistic style has won him fans right across the globe and I almost certain that this will the first of many publications from Mr Bright Bazaar, huge congratulations Will xx

Now it’s time to get crafty!  As I was flicking through the beautiful pages of Molly Makes, I stumbled across their free giveaway, a template for a floral brooch that was so pretty, I had simply had to make it. This was partly due to the fact that my 4 year old daughter was sitting at the tale with me and said “Mummy, you can sew, can you make this?!” Below is a picture of the finished article with my very happy daughter wearing it.
