September stories.

The start of September always ushers in a raft of emails in my inbox, showcasing the new season collections from some of my favourite design brands.  While I don’t believe anyone needs to be updating their home decor on a yearly – let alone seasonal – basis, I’m always excited to see new lifestyle imagery from the brands whose designs I’m always most drawn to; to gain inspiration for new ways of arranging my home, new colours I might like

Italian vacanza.

I always love to see how the creative and unique approaches design companies take in sharing their brand philosophy with their customers. Danish design brand Vipp have been slowly but surely developing their own portfolio of design-led one-of-kind hideaways, that allows guests to fully immerse themselves in the wonderful world of Vipp and experience all their products in the most beautiful of settings. It’s such a wonderful and immersive approach, don’t you think?    And their latest offering, Villa Vipp,

I’m definitely a sucker for anything that looks to be extremely tactile, soft and – technical term –

The February Edit.

All of the lovely new SS18 collections landing in my inbox just now give me hope that springtime really is on it’s way! I’m definitely in need of a little colour palette pick-me-up after a few long, dark winter months (my first up North) and seeing a wealth of warm caramel hues, fresh inky blues and a smattering of punchy florals has certainly lifted my spirits the past few weeks.   Of course, not being one whose naturally smitten with

A better everyday life.

Hands up if you have an item of IKEA furniture in your home.  Silly question; who doesn’t?!   I hadn’t realised until moving up to Manchester that one of my new local IKEA stores in Warrington, Cheshire, was actually the first to open in the UK, back in October 1987.   Growing up in South London my first experience of the big Swedish blue-and-yellow store was when the Croydon outpost opened in the early 90s on the site of the
