Living It Up

On November 4th, 2013 by .

I recently worked on the hit TV show The Hotel Inspector, with Alex Polizzi, where I was responsible for the makeovers and styling.  This meant that I had to change the existing decor, giving the space a complete transformation. The next task was to find some fabulously stylish and generous interior companies to work with us.  One such contributor was ‘Living It Up‘, an online retailer selling contemporary home and garden products.  They were extremely kind and donated several items for the first show.  I’m afraid I can’t reveal the particular products they loaned until the programme airs, in early 2014, but the items below give you a good idea of their range.  The cushions have to be a favourite of mine as they cover off almost every trend; butterflies and owls, geometric stripes, Monochrome and bicycles.  They also sell some lovely furniture pieces and new to their Autumn season is the Vintage Range, all the designs are available in eye-catching finishes as well as classic neutral colours.  Whether its shabby chic storage units or vintage consoles and bureaus, their modern takes on classic designs are beautiful. Their Sunburst clock is also a steal at only £49.  In fact, if you have a good look at their website, you’ll find that Living It Up are really competitively priced!

New year inspiration

On December 31st, 2012 by .

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year. If like me, you feel a little flat after all the festivities, then try to think about things that make you happy for 2013, through images…

Image 1: A long walk always blows away the cobwebs and is often where I find so much of my inspiration. Image 2: I love throws; cashmere, mohair, silk and wool, I think I have one in every material! I see it as an essential accessory for every bed and sofa ;0) Image 3: I will try to be as creative as I can at home and at work, I thought this picture demonstrated how something so simple can look so stylish. Image 4: A log fire makes me feel so happy, the crackle and smell of the burning wood brings back Childhood memories from the house I grew up in. It’s amazing how something can bring so much comfort. Image 5: Spring planting, this is the year when I plan to start my vegetable patch, a little way of I know but I love the idea of using these little sticks in the ground. 6: My family inspires me every day xx

What is your inspiration for 2013…?

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!
