It’s the middle of August, we should be basking in sunshine whilst wearing tropical print bikinis, and instead, we’re looking out from our desks at grey skies whilst wearing our cardi’s!  But fear not, we have just taken a trip to the Caribbean…well, almost… after seeing the new collection from Matthew Williamson for Osborne & Little we certainly feel one step closer. In ‘Cubana’, Williamson conjures the glamour and excitement of pre-revolutionary Cuba; printed fabrics and wallpapers in a daring colour palette feature flamingos emerging from exotic foliage, leopards creeping through...

Colours are bold and beautiful, textures are sumptuous and inviting, but the Prints, it’s all about the prints! We’re floating away into a Canovas...

One of the wonderful perks of our job is getting to see all of the amazing new collections that our favourite designers and fabric houses bring out each season. Just when we think we’ve seen it all, another fabric reignites our passion and leaves us desperate to use it in a latest Interior scheme, if not for a client then for ourselves! Just a few weeks ago we were presented with the fabulous new William Yeoward collection and with every unveiling of each new design nothing but “oohs” and “ahhs” could...

So that’s it, Christmas has come and gone and 2014 is well and truly here! We hope you all had a joyous Noel surrounded by loved ones and we hope Santa was good to you! I must have been a good girl as Santa was very good to me; I was blessed with many lovely gifts, one of my favourites being the stunning book ‘A Living Space’ from Interior Designer Kit Kemp. It is a truly inspirational book which promotes thinking outside the box when it comes to scheming a...

I apologise in advance as I am about to make you all green with envy. I have recently returned from a holiday, not just any holiday, but an amazing holiday in the most beautiful villa high up in the hills and under the Tuscan Sun. A whole week of blissful escape, leisurely days spent relaxing by the pool, cycling the wonderful walls of Lucca, walking the trails of the Cinque Terre, and long nights devoted to sampling the local produce and drinking (too much) delicious Italian Rose whilst looking out...

 The new collection from Cole & Son has a little of the surreal about it, in Fornasetti II, gold keys dangle enticingly amongst a leafy backdrop, a family of owls gaze expectantly, monkeys creep around a beautiful architectural structure, and theatre guests look out of their boxes waiting for the show to begin. This is certainly not a collection for the faint hearted but if you are looking for a paper that will amuse and entertain, as well as create a stunning talking point then look no further. Pop into our...
