Gloomy outdoors-Brighter looking indoors

Summer is flying by and looking out the window this morning despite a promising start its looking a little grey!

We have been really busy all Summer with lots of interesting projects including-a ‘fold away’ home office with new colour scheme and loose furniture and window treatments, a living room re design with new colour scheme, lighting, carpets, bespoke walnut credenza unit with matching lacquered and walnut alcove units. Also the makeover of a conservatory area with hexagonal built in seating/storage solution. A traditional bedroom re design with wardrobes, carpet, new colour scheme, lighting and bespoke inset moulded lacquered wardrobes.

All went well and have some snaps of the works in progress.

Lots of new project are getting underway in next few weeks, with large extension/renovations projects covering every room in the house-so watch this space!

So do get in touch if you have any rooms that have gone a bit ‘tired’ or are simply not working for your Family’s changing needs and I can take a look.

Interior Design Christmas reading-Nicky Haslam

I read an engaging review in the Sunday Times last week and had to get a copy of ‘A Designers Life: An Archive of Inspired Design and Décor’’ by Nicky Haslam. Haslam founded his London-based architectural and design firm, ‘NH Design’ in the late 1980’s and counts Mick Jagger, Ringo Starr, Paris Hilton and Brian Ferry among his high profile Clients.

Describing his company as motivated by creating interiors that are ‘’flattering to their owners’’ –according to him they are a mix of the deeply serious, grand and impressive with charm and above all wit.

I love his opulent watercolour renderings which are based on select interior design projects some of which are now housed by the Victoria and Albert Museum. As he says about the sketches for Brian Ferry’s house ’’The drawings I did for their house, though looking awfully wonky now, started my practise of making them for every project’’. A great book well worth a read for anyone interested in interiors!

Friday round up-a beautiful home

On a recent trip to London I came across some of the work of renowned florist Nikki Tibbles of 'Wild at Heart'. Her innate style, sense of colour and proportion extends to her own home. A gorgeous subdued colour scheme is the perfect backdrop for pops of colour and plays on scale, proportion and texture...superb.
