A patisserie in London

Here is a prime example of how pattern can have a HUGE impact on a space. BOOM! Pattern expert ELEY KISHIMOTO has unveiled its interior design for the new Southerden Patisserie and Café in central London, in collaboration with long-term creative partner, UK-based design practice Studio MacLean. The newly opened store is situated at 72 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3UD. The new Bermondsey Street store was complete at the end of January 2015, in time for its official opening in February 2015. The transformation from run-down hairdressers into a beautifully crafted patisserie store was truly remarkable; EK’s eye-popping graphics (from floor to ceiling in its Venice pattern), coupled with Studio MacLean’s technical lighting solution, have aligned with the beautiful heritage of Bermondsey Street, opposite the Fashion Textile Museum.

Inside Out's Colour issue

My monthly email from Inside Out magazine's Managing Editor Lee Tran Lam landed in my inbox and I got colour bombed! It's time for their April Colour issue with its two covers and promises to be a rainbow kaleidoscope of fun interiors.

There's one unapologetically vibrant home that I think you'll love ... It belongs to stylist, retailer and international pilot LeeAnn Yare, and her home is an express trip through a memorable world of colour. (I love that she waited until her husband Glen went away surfing before setting out to paint the living area black – seize the day, indeed!) A leftover wallpaper roll gets a second life as bright harlequin-style patterns multiplying across her kitchen island bench, while even her children's bathroom is decorated with Florence Broadhurst motifs. My favourite example of her wonderfully unreformed love of decoration is her office space, where the a vintage-looking carpet is cut into a cowhide shape and her walls have rejected anything resembling a blank space – the surfaces are covered in stretches and patchworks of wallpaper – she says it's like working inside a gigantic moodboard! LeeAnn styled the story and it was photographed by Larnie Nicolson

Wow! Can't wait to see more in this month's issue out tomorrow. Don't fret if you aren't in Australia though. You can read along on  ZinioGoogle Play,  the Apple Newsstand and Nook.

Welcome to the bold, contemporary world of Brazilian interior architect Paula Neder...where colours and patterns are aplenty and chair porn is the name of the game (I looooove the 'bondage' chairs!).

Bold bathrooms

Natalie Clayman sure knows how to create some drama in a bathroom, again with colour and pattern. These bathrooms are sure to shock visitors when they open the door. And I guarantee when the initial shock wears off, it will be followed by a smile.

Big and bold

This London home for rent via Domus Nova is beyond incredible. The architectural features are so typical of London and OH SO FABULOUS, and the furnishings and bold use of colour play off really well with the grandeur of the home (though admittedly not for everyone). It is 6200 sq ft spread out over 5 stories, has 6 double bedrooms with 6 ensuite bathrooms, a decked roof terrace, a great backyard. What an absolute dream!
