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…

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…

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…

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…

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?

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…

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…
