Mood Board | Calm Country Cottage Living Room

Mood Board | Calm Country Cottage Living Room

I’ve been working with one of the loveliest families in Kent, on a design plan for their cottage living room. They’ve got two gorgeous kids, aged 4 and 2, and they wanted to carve out an adult space free from all the plastic paraphernalia that comes with living with small people. Inspiration The brief was a calm, clean, clutter-free area space with a traditional vibe, “typical of a Country Living feature.” I pulled together a few photos that, I thought, summarised…

Mood Board | Modern Vintage Boys Bedroom

Mood Board | Modern Vintage Boys Bedroom

A couple of months ago, I worked on a shared boys bedroom with a modern vintage vibe. The clients are the two oldest (age six and eight) in a family of five children. Their bedroom is big and bright, with a gorgeous fireplace and lovely high ceilings. It had been newly painted in Farrrow & Ball’s Ammonite (a soft, warm grey), and had new carpet installed, so the design was really all about finishing touches to create a calmer, more cohesive…

Mood Board | A Moody Girl Cave Design

Mood Board | A Moody Girl Cave Design

I’m digging dark, intimate spaces lately, and today’s design board is just that. This girl cave design incorporates a cocktail bar, and maintains a moody, cosy vibe with a limited colour palette of deep grey, navy blue, brass and natural materials like wood and leather. The bar stools, from Chairish, were the jumping off point for this whole design. The rich leather warms up all the grey and blue, then gold accents turn this otherwise masculine space into a cozy girl…

Mood Board | Designing An Eclectic Family Media Room

I’m sharing an example of an Interior Design Room Scheme today, in this case an eclectic media room designed for the whole family.

You’ll get a full list of links to products or instructions on where to buy, and you still benefit from access to trade discounts. But you manage the installation yourself, which can save a good chunk of money.…

Today I’m sharing a full design plan I put together for a remote client, who asked for a blend of traditional English and Art Deco styles for his living room design scheme.
