Sunday kicked off this year’s London Design Festival with the fabulous Decorex. Held at Syon Park again with over 400 hand-selected brands, exclusive installations, unmissable collaborations and some truly inspirational speakers, I thought I should put together some of the highlights you have to see… FUTURE HERITAGE I am really excited about this years Decorex with the […]

LIFESTYLE CRUSH: THE BRITISH COUNTRYSIDE

With the launch of our new botanical collection we clambered through British hillsides and forests to seek out the most amazing botanical beauty for our autumn and winter season. Our new botanical collection has given me a reason to fall in love with the British Countryside all over again. With our...

4 events you have to go to this bank holiday

As I am chained to my desk at the moment, I got to daydreaming about all the things I want to do this upcoming bank holiday. So, I thought I would write down my wish list of activities and events I would love to go to, if I had infinite...

MY NEW CRUSH: LEIGHTON HOUSE

Tomorrow kicks-off the start of London Festival of Architecture, which is Europe’s biggest annual architecture festival. It runs for the whole of June, so I thought I would celebrate the fabulous occasion with one of my favourite buildings, Leighton House. The former home of the Victorian artist Frederic, Lord Leighton,...

AA CITY GUIDE: MILAN

Yesterday marked the start for design devotees to make the annual pilgrimage to Milan. Yes, it is the creatives hot diary entry, Salone del Mobile. The event gets bigger every year with new districts to visit and growing lists of people to see. I thought, instead of giving a preview of what’s in...

AA CITY GUIDE: STOCKHOLM

I have to admit it; I am obsessed with Stockholm these days. Having recently dashed across to the design-conscience city, I love how they can make any space cosy with their playful attitude to lighting and casual approach to creating great tasting food – not to mention beautiful architecture.

25hours Hotel Bikini Berlin

Though the name may sound a little strange, this place is one of the coolest hangouts I have stumbled across. Once a bland 1950s high-rise, this sexy pad has been cleverly transformed into a super-funky hotel, 25hours Bikini Hotel. Nestled in the West City, the interiors have been designed by...

AA CITY GUIDE: MELBOURNE

Happy Australia day! I love Aus – it’s always so exciting and inspiring, and is such a design and architecture hotspot. You don’t need to look much further than this amazing colour-explosion home in Byron Bay (one of my all-time favourite house crush posts by the way!), or the famous Walsh...

AA CITY GUIDE: PARIS

I love Paris – j’adore. It’s a beautiful city, especially in winter I find. I could walk around for hours exploring the little alleyways and side streets, sipping coffees (well maybe not the coffee its not so good in France) and soaking in the atmosphere. I’m particularly fond because they’re...

Inside Hong Kong: Glimpses from my trip

I’m in Hong Kong a lot. A few years back NYC used to be the my most visited city for work, now it’s HKC. I’m a little obsessed with this city – I visit it a lot but I love to go most when it’s still nippy at home (early spring...

My secret London spots

Morning, it’s been crazy here of late at HQ. Spring samples arriving by the pallet load, constant replenishments to our stores at Heal’s and Upper Street as Christmas is now in full swing and lots of plans for next year. Crazy times. So crazy in fact that I’ve pulled rank and...

Floating hotel Bert’s Barges

I love people or brands that do things differently, shake things up, steer away from the norm and none more so than the latest hotel to hit my ‘hood. I say hotel, but Bert’s Barges is in fact a boat hotel. Some of us dream of being hoteliers (I know I...

Roman & Williams rustic country cool

I am the biggest fan of the design powerhouse Roman and Williams, and their weekender pad in Montauk sits in my inspiration folder. In my next life I want a weekender in Montauk where I could potter round the garden on the weekend, swim in the ocean, cook something yummy and...

MY ULTIMATE SHOPPING DESTINATIONS

Hugest biggest thank you to everyone who came to our Abigail Ahern Flowers launch at Heal’s last night and for all the zillions of amazing comments about our new faux florist. You can see images of the space on my insta feed, and I’ll have a few more up on the blog...

SPOTLIGHT ON DETROIT

Morning everyone, did you guys know I used to live in Detroit? To be a little more precise I lived in the ‘burbs in a small town near to the art institute Cranbrook, in a place called Birmingham. I remember freaking out when Graham asked me what I thought about...

THE ACE HOTEL, DOWNTOWN L.A.

I’m off to LA in a few weeks to shoot for my new book (super exciting) and I reckon I might be checking into this place. It’s my latest current obsession, The Ace Hotel. Designed by the über cool collective Commune who have designed some of the coolest residential and commercial spaces...
