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.

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!

Which bed to buy?

On July 16th, 2012 by .

Whether you are thinking about buying a solid wood, metal or maybe upholstered bed frame, it is important that you choose carefully and spend time comparing styles and prices; after all this will be one of the biggest investment purchases for the bedroom. If you are designing your room from scratch then the bed can be a good starting point for the rest of your scheme. For example, if it is shabby chic French look you are after, opt for an upholstered bedstead in faded greys, creams or blue and team this with weathered furniture and painted floorboards, finish the look with faded french linen bedspreads and a droplet crystal chandelier. For a classic French look then visit La Maison on Shoreditch High Street, London, they have the most beautiful antique bedsteads, mirrors and armoires. For antique lighting, try The French House. If it’s a sleek and modern finish then B & B Italia has some very cool and individual pieces, I absolutely LOVE their Lazy Nights bed, combine this with a tri-pod or cord lamp from Design House Stockholm and faded wooden furniture from Hay, if it’s a Scandi look that you are after. Or, consider high gloss cabinets and dressing tables from Camerich for a minimalist feel. For mid-range prices, look at Raft for their classic reclaimed bed frames and Camerich again for their simplistic and modern style (it is a more affordable B&B Italia or Ligne Roset).
