In the pink

This kitchen felt very dark and a bit gloomy with very little natural light coming through. We added some slim, long windows to the adjoining living room wall, and painted the ceiling a Mexican pink. Voila! it changed everything. The new windows now bounce the light off the pink ceiling and it feels so much brighter, and much more inviting - it's now the hub of this family home.

Clients are often scared of painting ceilings, but with the right colour choice, it can be a total game changer.

no-limit sitting

I have always loved this Ekstrem geometric, knitted back chair – more than just a chair, it's such an interesting object to have in your space. It is unbelievably comfortably and allows you to sit in it in many different ways – and although quite large, the beauty is it doesn't feel like it takes up a lot of room because you can see through it! Designed in 1984 by Terje Ekstrem, this was one of Norways first postmodern designs, and still remains a design classic today.

Kilim Love

I just love this patchwork of Kilim rugs – I've had this image for ages, and always go back to it. So much nicer than a carpet, and you can keep swopping it around!

Pink and green…

Pink and green should always be seen I say! This is a recent bathroom project, that's part of a house renovation still in progress. We used Diespeker terrazzo porcelain tiles for the floor, bright green Vola taps, a Kast Concrete pink basin and a mix of coral pink and off white paint palette. A good result.

Back to the 70’s

The new Standard Hotel in Kings Cross is just my idea of heaven! Total 70's, meets Deco, meets Biba, meets Stranger Things, all rolled into one fabulous palette of blues, pinks, reds and oranges. Designed by Shawn Hausman , every single detail has been meticulously taken care of, oozing style and so many curves! Brought to life in the renovated Brutalist Camden Town Hall Annex building, but not feeling like London at all.

Love these Omkstak colourful chairs - a design classic since the early 70's and still looking good! Designed by Rodney Kinsman who's still going strong and has stuck to his original design aesthetic's.  Another fave is the Sling chair that came in either leather or canvas sling seat.  And the chrome tubular chairs that were my family chairs as a kid, have just recently been resurrected and had a makeover in tan leather, they look amazing!

In Progress…

This geometric patterned kitchen wall was designed using handmade encaustic tiles from Bert & May.  They have such a nice uneven, mat texture...we also put in a new skylight window with architectural tube lighting and a new end-cork wood floor.  Shelving and storage are still a work in progress...

Adobe Style

I've been looking at 'adobe style' interiors for a basement project I'm working on - this involves using a special natural clay to plaster the walls.  It gives such a natural, warm feel and is going to really suit the cottage I'm working in - very exciting & quite a challenge!

shelf envy

These pictures are from one of my all time favourite exhibitions by Martino Gamper a couple of years ago at the Serpentine - it was called 'Design is a State of Mind' and featured an array of mixed shelving designs from Ettore Sottsass to Charlotte Perriand to Ikea!  Each piece displayed a collection of objects which were chosen by Gamper from the personal archives of his friends and colleagues, all telling a personal tale...knick knack heaven!

The Toy

This was my favourite piece from the recent Eames exhibition at the Barbican - I just love its simplicity and versatility - It's just pure genius! I wish they still made them.
