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.

Get the Look: The Greenery Trend

We are currently in the midst of a self-imposed spending freeze, and to curb my desire to shop/decorate, I’ve been window shopping online instead. Obviously, I found a lot of pretty things, so I’m rounding up a whole host of them to piggy back off my 2017 interior design trends round up post. Starting with green, green, glorious green. I labelled this trend in home decor “Botany” in my last post, but although palm prints can look amazing (like in Whistler Leather’s showroom, above,… View Post

So Hot Right Now: 2017 Interior Design Trends Report

I spent last Thursday perusing all the pretty things on display at London Design Week. I’ve been asked a few times recently – particularly by friends and family who want help decorating their own spaces – what’s trending in interiors. Now, I’m not saying you have to follow even a single one of these to have an awesome home. Because, you know, you do you. Except I personally love almost all of the interiors trends in this round-up. And whether… View Post

Favorite Things: A New Orleans Family Vacation Rental, A Tiny Home & Ugly Shoes

Travel: A New Orleans Family Vacation Home Our New Orleans family vacation was one of my favourite family holidays ever. We traveled there from Chicago on Amtrak – so fun! The only part of the trip that I might have done differently was our accommodation. We stayed in a hotel in the financial district, which was fine, but didn’t give us a very authentic New Orleans experience. This shotgun rental home, in the city’s Lower Garden District, would definitely have solved… View Post
