Summer Blues: Best Bright and Neon Blue Homewares

May 11, 2022

.

I don’t like to play favourites, but you have to hand it to blue, it is a very versatile and persuasive shade! I usually gravitate towards the blue-green hinterland, but lately I’ve been attracted to a different blue – a more immediate and shocking shade. Dark-almost-neon blue, vivid blue, Yves Klein blue, sometimes Matisse blue, the kind of blue that pops and creates energy instead of calming.

Seasonal changes in the home for autumn with Magic Linen

September 27, 2021

So today, I am sharing some of my favourite examples of stunning papers that really work from wallpaper website I Love Wallpaper.

In Bloom: Chic Floral Interiors Pieces

April 27, 2021

.

Spring has arrived, at long last, and with the world around us suddenly coming into bloom I’ve got flowers on my mind. The Cottagecore aesthetic is a trend that has seen a lot of growth over the last year. Though it’s not a look I’m naturally drawn to, I love bringing all forms of nature into the home. I see this trend as a slightly more folksy version of maximalism, and whist I’m not going to be falling for it hook line and sinker, I may just add one or two selected curated pieces, possibly in blush and rust tones, to my home this year.
