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. Allow me to challenge the norm for the purpose of this post… […]

Set in style

Ever watched a film and whilst doing so, looked around your home and thought, this place has that set’s potential. I’m always most impressed by a good film’s set design as opposed to its actors or styling. I was crazy for the interiors that featured in A single Man. Oh! Have a look – here’s […]

Tips from a decor voyeur

This post isn’t as much about décor trends as it is about human nature – but tell me you don’t enjoy peeking around inside other people’s homes … Be honest!

Come dine with me

Hubby and I have just spent 45 minutes poring over the Mr D takeaway menu (I’m getting sushi, he’s having a burger) and I noticed that nearly every fast-food franchise has a preponderance of red in its corporate identity … think about it. Even their outlets seem to boast bright red decor. So, curious, I […]
