Room Reveal | A Camo Kids Bedroom

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,…View Post

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.

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. I started looking for speedier alternatives, but ultimately decided to take a few extra weeks and finish with a space doesn’t involve cutting corners. This is where the room is…

ORC Reveal | Eclectic Living Room

ORC Reveal | Eclectic Living Room

It’s One Room Challenge reveal day. Over the last eight weeks, I’ve been working to make the living room in our Edwardian house brighter, happier, and more functional. I’m calling the overall vibe “Global Eclectic.” The house is rented and the budget was tight, so it’s not the most dramatic makeover. And Covid sprang a few shipping delays on me, so it’s not 100% finished. But it’s close enough to share. Learn more about Emmerson & Fifteenth’s interior design services here.…
