Inspiration request

We received an email from someone looking for a bit 'o inspiration: "HELP! I need inspiration. I am redoing a guest room and I want it to have that Indian/Moroccan feel to it with out feeling 'themey'." Not a problem. I went through my stash and found some not overly Indian/Moroccan bedrooms that I think would make beautiful guest rooms. But beware - make it too beautiful and your guests will never leave!

Jason Martin


Jason Martin describes his style as a "highly edited mix of seemingly opposite styles. Mixing minimalism and whimsical, preppy with bohemian and old world with family friendly, Jason creates very personal spaces for each client." I love bio blurbs especially when they nail it like that. We featured Jason's work back in December when he was pulling his website together and now he has emailed that the site is ready to rock. Look at the goodies there now! These are great rooms with lots of vintage touches and a look that should inspire!

Latest from Wendy Blount

Interior designer Wendy Blount was the topic of a post Jo published back in September. Wendy emailed us the other day to let us know she has updated her website. Less elegant and way more funky with bold and dramatic colours and patterns. Such lively spaces. Thanks so much Wendy for the opportunity to share more of your work!

Bathing Beauties


Nothing dates a house more than an outmoded bathroom (that and an aging kitchen). I couldn't resist posting these 80s bathing beauties. Come on! What's not to love? In 25 words or less "Why I hate these rooms". Your time starts now. Making the most of Bedrooms & Bathrooms, by Mary Gilliatt, Orbis Publishing, London, 1983 is the source.

New sponsor

I'd like to take a moment and welcome a new sponsor to DTI - Totally Home. They are based in the UK and are advertising their awesome selection of wallpaper. I cannot get enough of wallpaper and dread the day when I will have to make selections for projects around my house. Totally Home carries wallpaper by Graham & Brown, Linda Barker, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, Mode, Soraya, Basso & Brooke, Barbara Hulanicki, Erika Wakerly and Hemingway. Go on over and have a looksie. Below I've included some samples that caught my eye.
