Ideal Home Show

Last Friday, Candice and I went to explore the Ideal Home Show in Kensington Olympia, London. As neither of us had been before we were expecting great things; and we weren’t disappointed! Firstly we browsed around the garden section and were very tempted to spend the rest of our day in the Jacuzzi’s. We made our way round to the show homes, one of our favourites being The Gap House. Styled to suit urban townhouses, themes from Abigail Ahern’s new collection were evident with moody blues and charcoal walls. Focused on utilising small spaces as the UK population grows, The...

Clocks go forward

We all love our Sunday morning lie-ins but those who love to snooze on the traditional day of rest will lose an hour’s sleep on Sunday 29th March, as the clocks go forward one hour to signal the beginning of my favourite time of year – British Summer Time (BST)! There’s nothing better than waking up with a bit of sunlight streaming through your bedroom’s window which, for me, is much better than hearing the lashing of rain on your windows during the colder Winter months.

For example, you may feel stuck in your job and unsure of what the future holds. The most likely source of your dreams are what you think about just before...

Spring Trends 2015

As the mornings gradually become lighter and spring approaches, I took a trip to London to suss out the latest trends emerging for the upcoming season. Browsing around Regent Street, Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road, I visited Liberty, Anthropologie, Dwell and Lombok to name but a few. An evident trend was the running theme of neon’s and bright colours; something I personally think everyone should try at least once in their home because, well, why not? With hints of 50’s interior inspiration from old fashioned fixtures to pastel dial up phones, the mixture of bold colours and soft tones...
