Artful Arrangements

We love a gallery wall for its flexibility and impact but you may be thinking you have seen it all before … the trick is to think a little out the box and mix up the idea. You can use anything from your holiday sketches, gallery posters or the collection of mirrors you love too […]

How to choose colours for interiors

We recently had the chance to answer readers questions in the Metro – always fun for us to share our thoughts and ideas and exciting to be asked! One of the questions also reminded us that starting the design and decoration of a room is often the hardest part – deciding what colours you want to […]

The Japanese House

I trekked my family over to the Barbican to see The Japanese House: Architecture and Life after 1945 – always a tall ask when my children’s first choice over half term would be the Science Museum or when I am particularly persuasive, the V&A. But bribed with food and lots of ‘this will be so […]

Natural Charm

  We landed up staying for a few days at Gastehaus Berge in Aschau im Chiemgau by accident. Too many hours spent on Air BnB searching for somewhere to stay in the area with just a little bit of style (I wasn’t asking for too much was I?) and I gave up leaving my husband […]

Where Architects Stay

  I landed on this book ‘Where Architects Stay’ after a stay at the stylish Berge Gastehaus and I have been paging longingly through it since our holiday became a distant memory. Its a beautifully presented book of short stories and stunning photographs on architectural gems around the world. Most importantly, unlike most interiors books, these places are […]

Minimalism in Miami

We picture Miami full of tropical colour and pattern but the recent sale of Calvin Klein’s minimalist beach home shows a different aesthetic.
