A Vintage Block Party

Some of you might know that I live in a particularly charming Art Deco block in East London which lends all sorts of feels to my period drama fantasies.

Greenpoint, Brooklyn Design Guide

Welcome old readers and new, re-charged and inspired after my annual break, I’m back with an abundance of design inspiration for you, starting with our glorious trip this summer to Brooklyn.

Period Inspiration: Netflix’s ‘Anne With An E’

There’s nothing that states ‘required viewing’ for me than when a new TV series is accompanied by swoon-worthy interiors and new Netflix show ‘Anne with an E’ (a re-boot of the iconic Anne of Green Gables) is a living breathing evocation of everyones favourite modern crafted brands – it’s basically Restoration Hardware meets Farrow and Ball by way […] Read more…

Home Office Goals

2017 has got me thinking about my own space. As a freelancer in my twenties I would hot-desk, work on the dining room table and then when we moved into our own home our guest room doubled as an office. Somehow renting an office space or a desk never appealed to me it never felt like […] Read more…

Each year the Palace (of Versailles) holds an exhibition on its grounds by a major contemporary artist – this year Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson – best known for bringing a colossal sun into Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall for […] Read more…

Versailles anyone? Based on life in the French Court during Louis XIV’s reign and his strategy for strengthening his hold on the country by the moving of political stronghold from Paris to the then tiny village of Versailles.
