ORC Week 1-2 | Mood Board | Modern Boho Bedroom

ORC Week 1-2 | Mood Board | Modern Boho Bedroom

It’s One Room Challenge time again. The ORC is a biannual event where a whole bunch of interior “influencers” transform a room over six weeks – a bedroom in my case. We post progress deets every week. It’s about community, not competition, which I love, and it’s a melting pot of gorgeous design ideas and DIY inspiration. I’m working on a modern boho bedroom in my new flat. Modern Boho Bedroom Plans Painting – Alive Neave // Similar Pendant Shade… View Post

ORC Week 1 | Mood Board | Eclectic Living Room

It’s time for another One Room Challenge makeover. This time around, I’m redesigning the living room in our Edwardian home in Southwest London. If you’re not familiar, the ORC is a biannual event where interior “influencers” each transform a room over (usually) six weeks, posting progress deets every week. This time round, we get an extra couple of weeks, because of the Corona situation. So much amazing interior design inspiration comes out of this event, and I’ve loved swooning over… View Post

My Go-To Source for Affordable Custom Blinds | Mood Board | Boy’s Room

I gave my son’s room a mini update not long ago. I added a mid-century dresser, moved his keyboard in, and switched the furniture around, but it still wasn’t completely finished. Today, I’m sharing my go-to source for affordable custom blinds, and talking about the impact the right window treatments can have in interior design. There were a few niggly issues in this room that needed addressing. The rug was too small, the bedside cabinet had seen better days, and the curtains… View Post

Mood Board | An Industrial Art Deco Bedroom Design

Mood Board | An Industrial Art Deco Bedroom Design

Today’s bedroom design combines art deco lines with industrial features, and it all started with the bed. It’s definitely a bit more glam than I tend to go for, but the Art Deco lines on the headboard are killer, and the Scandi-style feet with their little brass ends are just so pretty. Rather than go all-out luxe, I paired the glamourous bed with a few industrial touches, because that’s my jam. And set it all in a loft room, because… View Post

Mood Board | A Black And White Bathroom

Mood Board | A Black And White Bathroom

As a serial renter, I’m always thinking about what I would do if I had free reign on the homes I live in. High up on the priority list for our current house would definitely be a black and white bathroom renovation for the master suite. Of course, I already have a design plan in mind. A monochrome palette would work well with the design in the master bedroom, and adding brass and wood accents would warm the scheme up… View Post

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… View Post

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… View Post
