New Delft: Story Tiles

I forgot how relentless the trade show reporting side of my job can be. I wrote this post exhausted, in February when I had just returned the previous evening from a flying visit to Ambiente in Frankfurt – the biggest trade exhibition for tabletop and home accessories. I had walked ten huge halls each the size […] Read more…

New Neutrals by Morris and Co.

William Morris is the one and only designer that could make me embrace print and colour with abandon. His lush floral prints and dusky colour palettes evoke such vintage romanticism yet remain modern with intricate details in the pattern which have you ever noticed cleverly disguise the repeats? However, thankfully appealing to my love of […] Read more…

Wall Envy

We are moving home in January and for years i’ve been thinking about my art wall, but because we have always rented and never really been allowed to have art up, I haven’t collected as much as I would have liked. These two walls from Dwell Studio catalogue really have me swooning – I love […] Read more…

You are Loved

I re-discovered my love of New York based illustrator Shanna Murray’s work the other day. In the last few years, Shanna has very cleverly transformed her chalkboard style illustrations of wild flowers and laurels into poetic wall decals (and stationary) .

An example that I can’t get out of my head is a series of delicate mirrors by Dutch designer David Derksen. Called Transcience the project shows the beauty of […] Read more…

Love film

There is nothing like gaining a little more privacy in a busy city is there? These decorative window films by Emma Jeffs are great for just that. These removable films give you privacy without obscuring much needed light and actually transform the room into something quite dreamy! If you have an unsightly view outside your […] Read more…

Zina de Plagny at Surface View

Wall wizards Surface View are known for their extensive image library of archived designs with which they adorn walls and windows in your home. We wrote about them here last year. Their recent addition has me breathless. Surface View have been given access to a beautiful collection of original mid-century textile designs, from the archives […] Read more…

Le Cirque

I found this mysterious wallpaper on German wallpaper distributor Tapeten Agentur’s website, with only the title ‘Le Cirque’ attached. I literally can’t stop daydreaming about its characters – an exotic troupe of brave acrobats and glamorous show-people, with their menagerie of animals navigating across a magical globe. This would be so beautiful simply framed. Anyone […] Read more…

Les Invasions Ephemeres

I spent a long time on this site [with the sound on] feeling a little like Amelie Poulin. With each click, it dragged me further into its quirky, whimsy, Parisian world till I was  on the verge of running out of my front door and hugging a complete stranger, or presenting an old lady on […] Read more…
