Ikea Hack

Ikea Hack

We’re seeing more and more companies popping up promising to take Ikea cupboards and frames from basic to brilliant… I guess you could call it a glow up! The hack is becoming increasingly popular as it can be a more affordable way of upgrading without starting from scratch. All you need to is switch the doors, handles or legs to ones they’ve designed especially to fit, et voila! Sound simple? Well, that’s because it is…

We’re back with another Before & After post. This one is for you people out there who love an eclectic look as much as we do. Warning: you’re about to see the most perfect mix of bold colours, patterns and textures all in one reading (if we do say so ourselves)…

Soho House: Get The Look

Soho House: Get The Look

Talk about #InteriorGoals or what?! With 23 hotels based across the world, the interiors in every Soho House are something to behold. All of the Soho House’s are different in style but they have at least the following in common: the effortlessly chic feel. They all offer guests an invitation to a comfortable and relaxing, but fun, atmosphere, created to give visitors that home-from-home vibe…

Lacquered Walls

Lacquered Walls

What we really want to start seeing is our newest crush; lacquered walls. Shout out to style guru Ashley Stark Kenner for inspiring us. We all know that lacquered walls are certainly not a new technique but there’s no denying that they seem to have lost favour. But if you fancy giving it a go, you have two options: bring in the professionals, or attempt it yourself. DISCLAIMER: it ain’t cheap and we’ll explain why below…

Anthropologie Home are known for their one-of-a-kind mix of clothing, accessories, gifts and home furniture & decor. We can’t tell you enough how hard it was for us to select just a few of our favourite pieces…

The Fashion Bug Blog

The Fashion Bug Blog

If you’re prone to an Insta-scrolling session like us, you’re sure to have heard of the uber-glam mum of 3, Laura Wills, aka The Fashion Bug Blog. Laura has a massive following of over 220K and has become a friend of ours since we were lucky enough to work with her on her second daughter’s nursery. Now I’m expecting my first child, it seemed like the perfect time to sit down and ask her just how does she do it all…

The Red Thread

The Red Thread

No, this journal post is not going to be based on the colour red like you may think. Instead, we will be talking about ‘The Red Thread’ which is a Scandinavian expression used to describe a unifying theme. When relating The Red Thread concept to interiors, it means that by using similar styles throughout your home you will maintain a regular theme, therefore, easily creating a more cohesive home…

Coffee Table Books

Investment Pieces

Investment Pieces

We were shocked to learn that 22 million pieces of furniture are thrown out of homes every year. With the environment under such threat, we think it’s super important for everyone to start thinking more economically by investing in furniture and decor that you’re not going to fall out of love with in years to come. This doesn’t mean to say they need to be expensive, just that we shouldn’t approach design with such a disposable outlook…

Desks & Chairs

Desks & Chairs

If you’re someone who works from home, it can get a bit demotivating and send you a liiiiittle bit crazy. So, it’s important to make your home office an enjoyable place to be so you can actually enjoy working in it and be as productive as possible. Having a desk and chair you actually like will give you more of a reason to keep your office tidy as you’ll always want it all on show…

Italian Influence

Italian Influence

This week’s design is based on our luxury bespoke design service and is all about crisp clean lines and understated fabrics and furniture: the ultimate in modern Italian luxury. The brief was to create a simple and smart interior and immediately our thoughts turned to the Italians who do this so impeccably. Creating that signature modern Italian style is a constant balancing act - warm neutrals with subtle accent colours, smooth leathers against textured weaves, clean lines sat alongside smooth curves. Keep reading to learn more about how we do it…

Patterned Outdoor Tiles

Patterned Outdoor Tiles

If you've read our recent post on outdoor furniture, you’ll realise we've got BBQs and frosé on our minds at the moment. I’ve been looking for patterned tiles for my own patio after being left feeling inspired by lots of Pinterest-worthy images scattered over the internet. The beauty of a lot of these tiles is that they can be used indoors and outdoors, so why not even start them in your living space and take the same pattern out into the garden to give that open indoor / outdoor feel?

Tropical Oasis

Tropical Oasis

After the success of our previous Before & After post on Loft Living, we could see that these types of posts go down a treat so we’re treating you all to another transformation blog. This time we are showing you one of our personal favourites. In need of some serious loving, Decorum got their hands on this apartment and decided to turn it in to a fresh and chic home…

Colour Blocking with Paint

Colour Blocking with Paint

It’s time to stop shying away from the idea of using more than one paint on a wall. Say hello to colour blocking - something so simple that can completely change your room. Playing around with colours is a great first step to adding vibrancy to your home. Many turn to the idea of adding cushions, artwork and other colourful accessories to their space to add a pop of colour but there’s no need to follow the crowd…

Outdoor Furniture

Outdoor Furniture

As summer is fast approaching, it’s important that your garden is looking on point. If you’re like us, then I’m sure you take full advantage of the (very!) rare UK sun when it appears. But then, as soon as the sun disappears, a lot of people go back to neglecting their garden, but it’s just as important to keep the exterior of your home looking as good as it is the interior all year round. So, if your furniture is looking a little rusty then you may want to invest in some new pieces but we want to encourage you to step away from the three piece rattan sets…

Yellow

Yellow

Yellow: a colour that instantly takes your mind to a sunny day. A vibrant but cheerful colour, guaranteed to brighten your mood when stumbled across. Many people automatically turn to white paint when looking to have a brightening re-vamp to their homes. But why not try yellow? It gives that brightening effect just as well, but it can also give your home a touch more colour…

Coloured Grout

Coloured Grout

We’re always banging on about tiles in the studio, but we’ve recently realised that actually we could give a lot more thought to the grout. Obviously we don’t just chuck any old colour in. We check it tones, we think about how much we want each individual tile to stand out. But what we hadn't thought about, is how we could use colour. Yes, real, actual, colour. We’re talking pinks, oranges, blues…

Missoni Home

Missoni Home

Fashion is one of our greatest inspirations so we always love when a major fashion house takes on the world of interiors… you only have to look at how excited we were when Gucci Decor was launched! This time it’s all about Missoni. Missoni, a name autonomous with bold, colourful knitwear and that iconic chevron weave, went on to launch Missoni Home in 1983 and has gone on to be one of the most popular high-end fashion led homeware brands in the interior world.
