Twenty four hours in Budapest

Chapter 2.

Budapest, Gothic Revival Architecture, Hungarian Parliament Building

At the back of last week I ended up going on a fleeting visit to Budapest with a lovely client, sourcing tiles… Budapest hadn’t been on my radar particularly and least of all for tiles but much to my surprise I fell in love with both the city and the 80kilos of tiles we brought home with us!!

Finally after many months of no posts, hours of laughter, lots of cups of coffee, several bottles of wine and some sleepless nights, this is the moment I have been waiting for….. a formal introduction to Annie, my new business partner. It is an understatement to say just how excited we are for what lies ahead.READ MORE

Spring has Sprung

at Chelsea Harbour with London Design Week 2017…

London Design Week 2017, Design Centre Chelsea Harbour – Love these enormous balls of nature!

The last few months we have been concentrating and working on lots of new and exciting things but before we do our grand reveal I wanted to write about an exciting week I very much enjoyed at London Design Week 2017 at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, London.

Each year I love the buzz and energy coming out of each and every showroom at the harbour – it is wonderful how the centre comes alive and the conversation and the inspiration becomes intoxicating. I have fallen in love with many of the new collections and met and put lots of wonderful new face to names but I think my most exciting introduction was to the Tissue d’Helene showroom in Design Centre East. Their variety of different and eclectic brands lent itself well to a morning of complete happiness.

Half-term happiness in Scotland

‘The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love colour the most’ John Ruskin, The Stones of Venice.

Gleneagles, Scotland, AutumnHaving just jumped back on the train to London after a wonderful and restorative week in Scotland with the kiddies for their half term holiday, it seemed the perfect time to document our week.

Gleneagles, autumn, scotland, autumnal huesHaving grown up in Scotland I love being able to give my little people a tiny slice of my childhood and honestly what better time to go than the autumn. The light, the colours and the huge skies completely blew me away. READ MORE
