GAME-CHANGING DECORATING IDEAS

There are so many game-changing things you can do to turn a space around but the single most transformative and the cheapest thing you can do is to paint it out in a new colour! Don’t sit on the fence or procrastinate any longer; just do it and it will open up a whole new world, one in which you never want to leave!

DESIGN SECRETS

The great thing about being an interior designer is that you have a lot of insider knowledge up your sleeve; lots of tips, tricks and some winning advice that isn’t always obvious to an outsider and yet makes the biggest difference.

HOW TO MAKE A SMALL BEDROOM LUXE

The inspiration for this post was this amazing little bedroom, featured in this month’s Livingetc. It’s the guest bedroom of Gabriel Hendifar and Jeremy Anderson – the duo behind super cool lighting company Apparatus Studio. What’s so inspiring is how much style and luxury they’ve managed to pack into such...

WHY THIS WORKS: SPRING GREENS

Let’s talk Spring, shall we? Before I do its a long weekend here (4 whole days off). I’m sure that won’t happen but I’m going to pretend it might – so no blog until Tuesday just to warn. With the clocks changing this weekend and the new season definitely upon...

WHY THIS WORKS: SIMPLE SPA STYLE

  This Aussie spa style bathroom has a great headstart with the window and soaring high ceilings, but it’s actually quite simple if you really drill down into it. No super expensive gold or marble here – it’s just paint and tiles on the walls, simple chrome fittings and plain white bath...

WHY THIS WORKS: RAW MATERIALS

I’m pretty obsessed with somewhat rougher, cheaper materials at the moment and how to make them look luxe. Corrugated iron, concrete, worn leather and plywood look achingly cool but also low-key glam in this dining room. It doesn’t need the finest marbles and damask to make a statement, which is always good news...

WHY THIS WORKS: ELEGANT WITH AN EDGE

There is real skill when designing a room with a limited palette to still make it look tantalising. I’ve banged on about this all the time, and why reigning in your palette is the fast track to a sophisticated look. Here I’m doing something a bit radical though, well radical for me...

WHY THIS WORKS: KITCHEN COOL

I love that this London kitchen feels like the coolest of downtown bars or restaurants. No soulless, sterile decor or boring kitchen chores here! You can imagine perching at the island to relax with a good drink, or rustling up an effortlessly fab dinner, no? As ever, the reason this works is...

WHY THIS WORKS: TRAVELLED IN STYLE

Morning all, I’ve just come back from the most incredible buying trip in Paris with Gem. Truly fab not just in the products we found – lots of amazing lighting and textiles, vessels, tables, massive cupboards, but also in how inspirational it was. When Gem and I get together for even...

WHY THIS WORKS: CHIC SHACK

I am a huge fan of this little nook. Cowboy-esque in style it feels welcoming, super cool and laid back all at the same time. It just shows what you can do with the smallest space (like my cabin), or even just a neglected corner. The layered artwork is fabulous as...

WHY THIS WORKS: LUXE LIBRARY

I am a little bit obsessed with libraries as they feel all gentleman’s clubby and grand, no more so than this one from Nanette Lepore’s pad. I adore this room. I get an instant psychological jolt of happiness when I look at this space – I love that interiors can do that. Now...

Why this works: bold blues

Last week I was talking hallways and how to make the most of them. I think people panic that there’s nothing they can do in a tiny hallway, so they’re just resigned to having a bit of a bland walkthrough space. Well no more, I say! Today I wanted to show...

Why this works: Traditional with a twist

I’m a big fan of masculine interiors. I’m not talking sterile bachelor pads here, I’m talking sophisticated, glamorous spaces with a gentleman’s club vibe. The one above has all of this in spades, which is why it so works. Classy, with a deep and inky palette, so of course I’m a fan. Something I...

Why this works: Chicago loft

We all know that opposites attract – especially in interiors. Something magic happens when you combine lowbrow with highbrow. I get asked quite a lot for tips on decorating with opposites – can you sit cheap finds next to expensive finds without one throwing the other off? The answer is yes, but there’s...

WHY THIS WORKS: COSY CABIN

I’m a big fan of this look and all things rustic, ski lodge, cabin inspired! Feels such a perfect meld of casual with luxury, particularly this time of year when it’s getting darker and chillier by the day. The most important element to nailing this look is something that is so...

WHY THIS WORKS: SAFARI GLAM

Morning, slightly later than norm as I overslept until 6 then dashed out for a swim. As its getting cooler and darker the number of people swimming outside is getting less and less which suits me just fine. Now I’ve exercised and had my handmade granola, greek yoghurt and berries...
