New at Rifle Paper Co

Morning! I hope everyone had a fantastic long Easter break. We visited seaside towns Margate and Ramsgate for the first time this weekend – towns which are swiftly filling up with trendy Londoners who have moved down – bought huge houses by the beach and are living the dream – tempting… I’ll be publishing a design guide later this […] Read more…

28 Kothi Guesthouse, Jaipur

28 Kothi is a boutique guesthouse in Jaipur. When I spied this unusual beauty on my Instagram Feed last week I felt a most visceral draw to the space.

For me, it’s always the descriptions of the interior of the homes that fascinate […] Read more…

Lubna Chowdhary

I’ve been meaning to post about Lubna Chowdhary’s work which I spotted last year at Origin but lost her details. It’s only now that she’s doing the blog rounds that I found her again. I remember there being a huge crowd at Lubna’s stall, so much so that I could only manage to grab a […] Read more…

Earlier this month, I was away for a mere two weeks and came back to discover Minimoderns, the wonderful brand for design conscious families, had in that short time launched a glorious amount of gorgeous items! Firstly, a collaboration with Rug Designer brought about their first foray into the grander realms of soft furnishings. The […] Read more…
