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!

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

Art and Interiors

Following on from my fleeting visit to the Affordable Art Fair Preview Wednesday evening, it made me think seriously about the strong and growing relationship between art and interiors.

For me, a house becomes a home only once you add your own personality to the walls.
