Trend: Monochrome Interiors

On April 18th, 2013 by .

Everyone is going mad for the Monochrome trend right now, so here are a few black and white rooms which I think are really successful.  Although it’s a simple palette, the question is what ‘style’ of Monochrome do you go for?  Romantic: delicate and decorative textiles with pretty ceramics, Graphic: strong geometric pattern, clean lines and an abundance of black and white prints or Industrial: lots of textures, warehouse style with faded linens and a hint of charcoal.  I know, I know, sorry to add more options, but this is worth considering before you start planning!  One thing is for sure, the strong black and white theme will be certain to add impact and drama to any room in the home.

Introducing: St Aidan's Homeware Store

On December 3rd, 2012 by .

I am always on the hunt for new and exciting interior finds, so when this email popped into my inbox, I had to share it with you.  Launched by Joe McIntyre, the previous Art Director of Coast magazine, St Aidan’s is an online homeware store selling a collection of quirky and cool finds. Having had a life long passion for interiors, when Joe was faced with redundancy, he this felt like this was the right time to fulfil his dream of a homeware business.

“I set up St Aidan’s as a place to help source those quirky, cool finds that help give our homes a bit more personality. There’s some great Bloomingville products in the store as well as original works from artists and ceramists along with some fantastic vintage finds.”  Be sure to take a look at his site as I am sure you will love the collection as much as I do.

My Olympic Angle

On September 4th, 2012 by .

I have been lucky enough to visit the Olympics a few time over the last few weeks and have been completely caught up in the atmosphere, grinning like a child whenever I’ve been in the Olympic Park.  I feel very proud that we have held what is being named as ‘the most successful games to date’, the athletes, the volunteers, sponsors, organisers, architects, what an amazing contribution!

I fell in love with all of the buildings, the fluid and organic shapes, the bright pops of colour and the range of materials used.  Below is my take on what I saw.   I hope you are all enjoying the Olympics as much as we are!
