Upcycling: It’s Good for the Soul

Upcycling: It’s Good for the Soul

Taking on design projects is a fantastic way to let your creative juices flow; they’re almost a form of therapy for the creative mind and they reaffirm that yes, you are in actual fact a DESIGN GENIUS.

Urban Design Is King

Urban Design Is King

I’m a fan of urban, contemporary design that includes industrial inspired elements, with a little bit of vintage thrown in for good measure.   If you’ve been unfortunate enough to read a number of my posts, then you will have cottoned onto this pretty quickly.   I adore the raw simplicity of urban design. How […]

My First Guest Post – Autumn Styling

My First Guest Post – Autumn Styling

I recently collaborated with fellow blogger, Emily May, where we worked together to create a fabulous Autumn inspired interior.

Cosying up for Autumn

Cosying up for Autumn

I’m not one of those people who redecorates according to the season. However, in the midst of Autumn, when the days get shorter and the air a little more crisp; Autumn Home Interiorsit’s always nice to maximise the ‘cosy’ factor by incorporating a few well chosen accessories.

3D Visualisation Project – Homebase

3D Visualisation Project – Homebase

I recently dived into the Homebase website and had to physically lift my chin from my biscuit coloured carpet when I saw the sparkly, edgy and downright fabulous interiors ‘stuff’ that graced my laptop screen.

3D Visualisation – Welcome to My Dream Office

3D Visualisation – Welcome to My Dream Office

If you, like me, work in an office, chances are you spend at least 8 hours a day in the blasted thing. If you’re unlucky, that means you spend A LOT of time sitting looking at scuffed walls that are in desperate need of a repaint.

Designer Spotlight – Abigail Ryan Homewares

As a design geek, I’m always on the outlook for new and inspiring designs to feed my unwavering passion for interior design. I’ve sampled the delights of IKEA (read it here) and BHS (check it out) on my blog and now I’m turning my attention to a design duo that are much closer to home.

The Art of Displaying Your ‘Stuff’

The Art of Displaying Your ‘Stuff’

Let’s take a look at how you should be displaying your worldly goods, shall we? By following these tips, you would STILL be able to make random purchases from a Charity shop (while blindfolded) look good.

BHS Is Getting Its Freak On!

BHS Is Getting Its Freak On!

I’m thinking that maybe there’s been a huge shake-up in the management structure or something because there’s been some pretty drastic restyling within BHS…and it’s all good!

Oops, I Did It Again…

I like words. And consequently, I like letters. So it should come as no surprise that I like incorporating letters into the design of my personal space.

Vintage Vases: They’re Hot, Hot, Hot!

I’ve been doing a little bit of internet trawling in an attempt to gleam whatever inspiration I can for the current design scheme that I’m putting together. I’m talkin’ decorative accessories, here.

The Secret Life of the Desk

The Secret Life of the Desk

I recently acquired a new desk. This was an important purchase for a few reasons: I was starting to suffer from Repetitive Strain Injury, yes, yes very funny but seriously it ain’t a pleasant feeling.  One afternoon, after having spent all day on my laptop (from the comfort of my sofa) the index finger of my […]

Design – It Isn’t Just Aesthetics

Design – It Isn’t Just Aesthetics

I’ve become acutely aware that not everyone shares my keen interest in and enthusiasm for all things interior design related.

IKEA – My Top 5

IKEA – My Top 5

I’ve been browsing through IKEA’s offerings online and I have to say, IKEA as per usual has its finger firmly on the ‘design’ pulse.  It seems to be paying attention to contemporary trends so much more these days.  Yes, the modern(ist) Scandinavian influence and styling is still very prevalent but I do feel it has made amazing progress regarding […]

The NDA Unofficial Field Trip – London 2013

The NDA Unofficial Field Trip – London 2013

My day started at 04:45 on Saturday morning; I dragged my sorry a$$ out of bed repeating to myself that the early start was worth it.  Because on Saturday I ventured to London to meet a dozen individuals that I had only ever corresponded with via an online forum.  Just to clarify: an online student forum.  […]

A Little Trip to the Dark Side

A Little Trip to the Dark Side

Educational establishments should put a disclaimer on all of their Interior Design courses.  Before I embarked on my current journey of discovery I thought I was confident in what I liked and didn’t like, and for good reason. I was a fundamental fan of the neutrals family.  Beige?  Loved it.  Taupe?  It gave me goose bumps.  Glorious shades of […]

A few before and afters

A few before and afters

I love before and afters. We all procrastinate a little too much I reckon  (me included trust me) dithering around about whether to change up a room or not.  Panicking it might not work out but you know what just do it. I’ve been over on the forum for the…
