Won’t you Charleston with me?

In light of what was and what is going to be – that is the 1920s era and the soon to be released, new edition of the Great Gatsby – art deco will be the interior inspiration for the purpose of this post… From the flapper inspired Crawley dress sense in Downton Abbey to the […]

Pattern on, in and all over print

When it comes to pattern and print… I can’t get no! satisfaction! For the most part, clashing patterns and universe forbid, denim-on-denim in fashion, always illicits the up-then-down glance from passer’s by, but in décor – I don’t mind it in the least.

Fashion-come-decor // twice the charm

Since the cameras, lights and all the action started in New York and made it’s way back to finish in Paris tomorrow, I thought to add a second addition to our fashion-come-décor post, to send off the height of this season’s splendour, in splendour.

Every now and then something triggers memories of dreams I had when I was young and bright-eyed. Be it a photograph or a song on the radio while I’m driving to the shops and I remember that when I was 13 I truly believed I would never drive. That as soon as I was free […]

Fair, fairer, fairest home of all

Apart from their ability to plump (or deflate) the ego, mirrors can add an exciting element to your décor. The trend these days, though, veers sharply away from large expanses of bikini-unfriendly reflection. The most stylish homes on are wearing itsy bitsy teeny weeny mirrors – some of them even in polka-dot shapes. The trick […]

Pretty in (pastel) pink

It’s a fact that brighter-than-bright décor is trending all over the world. But this doesn’t mean that you have to adopt the style if your personal taste tends more towards the pale. Pastel shades are soothing and pretty and, in large, doses, infinitely easier to live with. One trick that international decorators have adopted, though, […]
