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… View Post

Mood Board | Designing An Eclectic Family Media Room

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. Room Schemes give you a full room design, with all the tools you need to execute that design yourself. 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.… View Post

Mood Board | Art Deco Meets Traditional English Living Room

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.

The client loved the set design on the TV show Jeeves & Wooster, and wanted 1930s Art Deco-inspired touches throughout his living room. He wanted… View Post

How to Make Overnight Guests Feel At Home

How to Make Overnight Guests Feel At Home

This year was one of the first we haven’t hosted overnight guests for Christmas, but it got me thinking about how we’d do it in this house if we needed to.

So, with a focus on small space solutions, here’s a little guide to how to make overnight guests feel at home, even if… View Post

Mood Board | Design Plans for a Long Living/Dining Room

I’ve just been granted clearance to buy a fancy Chesterfield, and I want to nail down the design plans for my dining/living room quick in case the hubs changes his mind. It’s a multifunctional space, with a study area thrown in for good measure, and, as usual, I’m blending an eclectic mix of design styles. The living/dining room is long and narrow, which makes for a bit of a design challenge, especially with so much to fit in. We need… View Post
