Winter trends you’ll want to snuggle up to

Black is, um, the new black

You see, Maison & Objet isn’t just any trade show, it’s the trade show, the interior design market’s fashionista. Flocked to this year by more than 85,000 professionals, purchasers and […]

It’s time to stop and smell the lavender…

The colour purple isn’t just a movie that earned Oprah Winfrey an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actress in 1985, it’s also a big colour trend in interior design this year, and one that this week’s guest blogger, 38andstilllearning’s Cathy Nolan, couldn’t be happier about…
