Design Trend – 2014 Bohenian Yarn

March 20, 2014

Modern Bohemian interior style home trend

I absolutely love the carnival tones and eclectic patterns of a trend I am choosing to call  bohemian yarn until somebody informs me of what the actual design term will be. We are all accustomed to the design staples of old – global traveller and modern bohemian but there is a real focus on the craft of design in the current trend and an eclecticism that doesn’t merely suggest a hint of the hippy trail installed in the villa of a Notting Hillbilly to me, I am absolutely smitten with it.Read More

Through The aperture: Columbia Rd Flower Market

If you are looking for something to do during a Sunday in high Spring and you want to be immersed in a wash of colour and smells then I can recommend nothing more highly than Columbia Rd Flower Market in East London. Amongst the hubbub of thronging people, the soundtrack of cockney stall holder patter and enough young and trendy to fill your boots you will come across the most overwhelmingly colourful array of flowers & plants at very reasonable prices. The street is dressed by lots of trendy cafes and home boutiques but really this road on a Sunday morning is all about flowers, flowers flowers.Read More

Peep around Our New Bedroom Design

March 13, 2014

1bedroom

We have at last completed the bedroom and upstairs hallway (well except for the floors, but that’s the case with most of the flat!). So I thought I’d share how it turned out, I’m really pleased with it, it’s a room that makes me smile and I’m glad we’ve been able to bring some personality to a small space without overwhelming it.
There was naturally a very cottage-y feel to this room with its small dimensions, uncentralised window and sloping ceiling which threw me in my initial thought process. It seemed to be insisiting that it required a rustic cottage look and I wasn’t sure if I should go with this and celebrate it, but having moved from town to country and back again I didn’t feel entirely comfortable paying homage to a rustic country look in the heart of urban Tooting.
