Parisian Skyline

L’oeil de boeuf windows seen, especially when you’ve got your nose in the air, walking around Paris.  These are the oval windows peeking out of slate roofs, carved from stone or made from zinc.  It’s easy to bring this architecture into your home with L’oeil de boeuf mirrors,  some pics below to show you ideas.

Some decoratively carved, others simple and more country like. as you would more often see in Normandy.

Ambiance Lighting

Good lighting is like a layer of magic dusk sprinkled over everything, it affects mood more than any other factor and is not a designing ingredient that you should skimp on.  Without the correct lighting even the most expensive and well considered decorating scheme can appear flat and uncomfortable.  As with all good lighting design it’s about layers, background lighting, ambiance light and task lighting.

Palette Cleanser

A Happy New Year to all, I hope you had a good Christmas with family and friends and Santa was good to you.

Don’t you just feel, after taking the festive decoration down from your home, that all is bear and oh it highlights the areas that are in need of a little attention.  It’s time for the Spring clean and assessing what interior changes are to be tackled.  I have a few images of neutral rooms, a calming palette cleanser after all the bling of Christmas, Winter whites and nudes with soft textures keep in cosy.

All items in this photograph are available to buy at our showroom at 665 Lisburn Road, Belfast
