Budget-Friendly Family Bathroom Renovation, East Sheen

This budget-friendly family bathroom renovation is from the same East Sheen property where we added a new extension with a large kitchen / dining / living area, utility room and guest bathroom. It was a “Give a mouse a cookie” type sitch – once they had a shiny new extension, the rest of the house didn’t seem up to par, so now we’re slowly working our way through the original rooms and giving them some love too. As is often…

Modern Kitchen Extension, East Sheen

Modern Kitchen Extension, East Sheen

We replaced it with a much larger and more functional extension which added a cosy living space, and a larger kitchen and dining area, along with a pantry, guest bathroom, and utility room. The Brief When I got…

I recently worked on a fun camo kids bedroom for some lovely clients based in Surrey. Having traded their smaller London home for more space in the country, they wanted to make their 7 year old son’s bedroom special, especially since it’s the first time he hasn’t had to share a room with his twin sister. The design was fully driven by the little man himself, and he loves camo. Before Here’s where the room started. They’d just moved in,…

Design Tips | Pretty, Hard to Kill, Air Purifying House Plants

Air-purifying house plants are an essential element of almost every space I design, and botanicals have been trending in the interiors world for a while. Plants help create visual balance in well-designed interiors. Organic elements always play nicely with sharper angles. Plants also have health benefits, filtering toxins and improving air quality. The NASA clean air study is one of my go-to, if slightly unexpected, design resources. It highlights the plants best at filtering specific toxins from the air, and…

Design Finds | Photowall Bedroom Wallpaper

Design Finds | Photowall Bedroom Wallpaper

The most striking design feature in my recent bedroom makeover is undoubtedly the Dark Emerald Green Watercolour Wallpaper I installed behind the bed. My flat is a rented modern new build, and the bedroom was a blank canvas. I wanted the space to feel modern with a hint of boho, which meant subtle texture, raw materials and a limited colour palette. I also wanted the design to pack a punch. Wallpaper can be renter friendly, and it’s a great way…

ORC Week 5 | A Midcentury-Inspired Bed

It’s One Room Challenge Week Five, with reveal day set for next week. The UK has just gone into a second lockdown, and everything is delayed. I can’t get the wallpaper hung for at least another two weeks, and there are shipping delays on the remaining furniture and the lighting.
