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

Stylish stays – California edition.

Right, it’s time for the next stop on my fantasy Stylish Stays tour, and this time I’m heading to the cultural city centres of California! Well, it is just a short hop, skip and a jump from the desert vacation homes I was drooling over before… California is one of those places that feels ‘familiar’ to me even though I’ve never visited before. Whenever I picture myself there I’m transported to the bustling Beverly Hills shopping malls and palatial-style mansions

New neutrals.

Goodbye grey, bonjour beige! Say hello to a new colour palette consisting of soft, neutral shades and warm, subtle contrasts. Gradually over the past few years, cool greys have been edged out for a warmer greige, and we’re now seeing an even cosier, yellower tone emerge as the base canvas for the best Scandinavian brand’s new catalogues and inspirations shots. I’m not quite on board with Dulux’s more magnolia-esque Spiced Honey – the brand’s Colour of the Year for 2019

Ladies first.

I’m currently in the midst of rounding up a blog post on my favourite co-working spaces in Manchester, but for now I wanted to share with you imagery of this most stylish of co-working spaces in Soho, New York. I came across The Wing via an Instagram post by Gillian Anderson (you guys know how much of an X Files geek I am..), which showed one of the space’s telephone booths emblazoned with the inscription: “the office of Dana Scully:
