Inside Out

Spring and Summer give us a time to use unusual pieces normally for inside the house in the garden; for example mirrors to bounce light in a small area, outdoor weather proof fabric for seat pads and cushions, on one of our ranges of Lutyens chair and benches, decorative objects obelisks, clocks and stag heads, hurricane lanterns decorated with sea shells and of course our wooden and lead planters, all available to source at our showroom.IMG_5166 Ralph posing for his supper on William Yeoward Fabric on our Lutyen Chair.

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Decorative mirrors, repeated in a collage, give an architectural statement to a room as well as bouncing lots of light. Here are a view that are available from Ian Thompson Interior Design.

Pretty in Pink

Celebrate International Women’s Day with pretty pink rooms. Pantone’s 2016 colour is Rose Quartz, a baby pink hue, that can add subtle warmth to a neutral room.   An accent of pink will add a little femininity to a masculine room or just indulge yourself in a cloud of pink. Here are some ideas…

Figuratively Speaking…

I blogged last year the trend of adding sculptures and 3D art to a room and it was even more prevalent at this year’s Maison Objet. Every vignette had a torso, bust or sculpture. It’s a quick fix for an unremarkable space, just add a bust and it will immediately elevate the space.

This sculpture offsets the symmetry of this room, deliberately, so it gets centre of attention.

David Bowie’s House on Mustique

It’s so sad to hear of David Bowie leaving this world.  I remembered an old Architectural Digest (1992) that featured David’s and Iman’s home in Mustique, it’s Indonesian design is beautiful, and I thought you may like to see it if you not as old as ourselves to remember!
