it's good to be naughty.

A little naughty but I absolutely ADORE this illustration. I really want Tilly to put this design on a mug so it can make me smile every day.

latest work.

Just thought I would post an image from a photo shoot I did recently. This bookcase and dinning table was created by a furniture manufacturer who then asked me to style the interior for their portfolio. So I kept it quite simple and just turned the books the other way round on the shelves to create a neutral look and bring the focus to the furniture. Would love to know what you all think.

knitted food.

I begged and begged my boyfriend to get me this cushion ... and he finally did! I am soooo happy - he could not believe a cushion could be worth £45 but trust me it is! And now this is the one cushion that we fight over when watching a movie! I also LOVE Kate Jenkins knitted food - especially these sardines on toast.

feed the birds.

As part of the London Design Festival Selvage put on a workshop at the V&A where you made your own pigeon. My friend and I got very excited and spent 1 hour making a pigeon - my boyfriend even had a go! I was very impressed with the result of his pigeon especially as it was his first time on a sewing machine - now he can sew his own holes up! hehe.

All the pigeons were then taken down to Trafalgar Square and photographed.

design with cutlery...part 2.

After my post yesterday I decided to research into other homewares inspired by cutlery and came across these gorgeous napkin rings up-cycled from silverware. These can be purchased from JJEvensenArt shop on etsy. Does anyone else have any cutlery inspired homewares?

life with wallpaper.

I have been helping a friend choose a wallpaper for her bedroom and whilst I was searching for the ideal one I came across so many beautiful papers that I wanted to share them with you all. After lots of testing and sample purchasing we opted for this elegant Ibis wallpaper by Turner Pocock.
This green and white wild flower wallpaper is gorgeous and would look perfect in any bedroom with white floor boards.
This Farrow & Ball wallpaper is a real statement piece in Kimberly Cornelison's hallway - found on design sponge.
I am so impressed with Otto's wallpaper. 'Ohoy' is my favorite. What a talented young boy. You can order the wallpaper in pre-cut lengths to fit your wall exactly.
