I love to see people take risks in the world of interior design, even if it isn’t to my taste nor something I can imagine living in. If it’s ballsy I give it 2 thumbs up. Like this all black apartment in St. Petersburg I found on The Village. Black from floor to ceiling, sparkly drippy chandeliers, swag burgundy curtains and bedding. I hate to say it but had I not known what website this was from my first guess would have been it was located in Russia. Do you think you could live here?

How cool is this chandelier?! Dram is a light sculpture composed of 120 vintage tumblers and drinking glasses from the 1960’s and 70’s. Each glass, imbued with a history of domestic use, contributes its unique qualities to the whole. Dram pays homage to the barely noticed beauty of everyday objects. By Vancouver firm Propellor.
I was searching for bathroom lighting as I have a renovation I need to start soon and came across the talented lighting designer Matthew McCormick from Vancouver. Love these!
Elegant and a bit edgy is a mix that always captures my heart and eyeballs. My eyeballs almost popped out of my head when I saw this new London location home available through Shoot Factory. Marble, brass and crystal chandeliers is a combination that you can never go wrong with. NEVER!
I wanted to share another to-die-for project by London design firm 2LG Studio. A 5 bed Arts & Crafts home given our modern twist with contemporary craft and bespoke elements. It was love at first sight and we wanted to maintain the strong heritage of the architecture, whilst bringing it up to date with our new take. We created a bespoke colourway of our floral, handprinted, wallpaper (designed in collaboration with Custhom) and our hand knotted rug for FloorStory. Giving a through-line on the ground floor – our personal take on the nature inspired prints of William Morris. Much of the original oak panelling, doors and pillars is left lovingly exposed, with the rest of the home given a neutral base to let the artworks and antique pieces shine. The lighting in the hallway, and throughout in brass and black metal, has a leaf motif that is entirely appropriate for the Arts & Crafts movement, yet adds a modern wit.
A bespoke brass and oak dining table, commissioned by us from british design brand, Novocastrian, with contemporary chairs by Ercol, becomes the centrepiece of the home.
