September in London is just back to back with interior and design tradeshows, exhibitions, seminars. You name it, it was happening!
I headed straight to 100% Design as there is always a great mix of products from leading local and overseas designers, as well as showcasing the up and coming. I picked out a range of products to give you a flavour of what was on show from the practical, the quirky, inventive and the unexpected…
Watch any interior style programme and they’ll talk about creating a statement, an impact. This month’s interior design article is about just that … how to turn your wall into a stunning design statement. And there’s a 15% discount offer at the end!
In the first of my new series ‘weekend decorator’ I’m featuring what is probably the most under utilised surface in your home, one that you can turn into a real design statement.
In the fourth of my world’s most unusual hotels series, I’m featuring the Wanderlust hotel, located in Little India, Singapore.
The owner of this four storey boutique hotel gave four design agencies an entire floor each and full creative freedom to design whatever they wanted. And design they did, letting their imaginations run wild, resulting in four ‘in-your-face’ themes – ‘Industrial Glam’, ‘Eccentricity’, ‘Is it just black and white?’ and ‘Creature Comforts’. This concept was the brainchild of hip hotelier Loh lik Peng.
If you’re anything like me, with summer upon us I want to be living outdoors. So why not make the most of the glorious long daylight hours and balmy evenings by creating an outdoor living space. Even if you have a small patio or terrace, there is still so much you can do.
This is part of the colour & design surgery series, answering questions from clients and readers.
Question: “My partner and I are in our first home together and have, maybe out of laziness, decided to keep all walls white. You’ll see from our photo of kitchen that the cupboards & appliances are white too. We do love colour and would like to know what we can add to the flat to get some colour without painting the walls?”

Having complied my ‘top ten ladies who tweet’ I thought it only fair, well truth be told I was asked “Where’s the one for us men”… so here it is.
Gentlemen who twitter… my top 10. Each of these lovely gentlemen I either know personally or professionally, whose tweets are educational, inspiring and darn right funny!
Last month Twitter (the micro-blogging site) celebrated their 5th birthday. Stylist.co.uk complied a list of their “top ten famous women who use the site to update us on their lives and work in 140 characters or less.”
In response to this I thought it would be fun to compile my own top ten favourite women who tweet. All ladies I either know personally or professionally, who inspire me daily.
They may not be famous ‘yet’ but they soon will be given their generosity in sharing their insights and support, wisdom and knowledge, all sprinkled with wit and humour.
Cushions are a simple and effective way to inject colour and personality into your interiors. They also make a beautiful personalised gift. If you’re a bower bird like me and have a box full of ribbons, bits of fabric, odd buttons and sparkles, here’s a way you can put them to creative use.
Claire-Louise, renowned West End costumier who runs The ThriftyStitcher has kindly shared her 5 simple steps to making your own cushion. She’s also giving 10% discount on all her classes (see end of blog for details).
