Our Living Room Shortlisted on Apartment Therapy’s Room For Colour 2013!

October 22, 2013

So I have been asleep for the last month and apparently failed to notice the exciting news that our living room (which I entered 6 weeks ago) had been shortlisted by compendium of modern style Apartment Therapy in their international category for rooms with the best use of colour. Am posthumously very excited (and annoyed with myself that I failed to notice or ask anyone to vote for us). I absolutely love this site, which Forbes described as “one of the most influential interior design sites on the Web” with good reason, so to have come 7th out of 25 in this category is a real honour. Go check out the other rooms on here there are some real beauties.

Chasing the Winter Blues away at Liberty

October 14, 2013

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

With the weather getting dark and icy and with the yearly arrival of minor ailments and hibernational moods, I decided it was time to take myself on one of my twice yearly sojourns to Liberty to get lost in their cathedral of consumption for a couple of hours. Like many girls of my generation, Liberty is a byword for the beautiful, it is one of those stores that across its four floors still maintains the feel of intimacy in small wood panelled spaces that feel like treasure troves to the particular, whilst collectively encompassing its original conception as a nineteenth century bazaar built on a grand scale, a true example of Zola’s Ladies Paradise.Read More
