UAL Graduate Diploma Interior Design | An Honest Review

UAL Graduate Diploma Interior Design | An Honest Review

From 2017-2018, I took a Graduate Diploma in Interior Design at Chelsea College of Arts, which is part of UAL / University of the Arts London. I got a bunch of questions about why I was doing it, what it was like, and whether it was worth it, so today I’m dishing the deets. Chelsea’s Graduate Diploma Interior Design is the equivalent of the third year of an interior design undergraduate course. It’s full time – around 35 hours in… View Post

Inspiring Design: A Neutral Scandinavian Apartment

Inspiring Design: A Neutral Scandinavian Apartment

Man, this whole trying-to-be-productive-even-though-the-kids-are-off-school is just not really working out. I’ve basically given up. I’m just going to embrace the fact that I will be confined to play parks surrounded by screaming children or covered in glitter for the next week or two. Actually, as I write this, I am in fact sitting in a horrendous indoor play area. It’s so loud, you guys – audibly and visually. But look – this Scandinavian apartment isn’t! It’s light and bright and… View Post

An Afternoon with Sweetpea & Willow

An Afternoon with Sweetpea & Willow

I went to the most fun blogger & press event at Sweetpea & Willow a couple of weeks ago. Their Isleworth showroom is only about three miles down the road from me in South West London, but I’d had no idea it was there. It’s packed with lovely things, and very glam. Now, glam is not my usual interiors repertoire but, as you might be aware, I tend to like all the things. And there was a lot to like.… View Post

Get the Look: The Global Trend

Get the Look: The Global Trend

Every time I work on one of these design trend round-up posts (so far we’ve covered Greenery and ’80s-Inspired Geometry, after I chatted about all of them back in this post), I think this design trend is my favourite. And then I start on the next one and I’m like, nope, this one is my favourite. Let’s just accept that I like ALL THE THINGS and move on. Cool? Cool. So yes, the global trend. I’ve always been inspired by global design, and I… View Post

Get the Look: ’80s-Inspired Geometric Home Decor

Get the Look: ’80s-Inspired Geometric Home Decor

Well, lovelies, I’m back with round two in my Get the Look series, following on from my interior design trends round up post. Last week, it was all about Greenery. Today, we’re talking 80’s-inspired geometric home decor. Think crisp, graphic prints and plenty of bold colours. Making Spaces’ bold drawing room (below), pulls this look off immaculately. Most of what I remember from the 80s was not pretty as far as home decor goes, but I am loving this modern take on it… View Post
