Interior Design

Monika's Home Tour


This gorgeous home belongs to blogger Monika from sweet The Doctor's Closet. I first caught a glimpse of it in Style At Home and immediately fell in love with the beautiful pastel colours and her glamorous styling. Her house is so femininee and chic and totally up my alley. Her home pretty well sums up my perfect abode.

Maria Barros

Maria's fresh, pretty Colour Palette

I am loving the work of Portuguese interior designer Maria Barros. Maria has captured the imagination of the blogging world with her fresh, colourful and creative design approach. Her work is constantly being featured on blogs and Pinterest all over the world. I too, am totally enamoured with the gorgeous spaces she creates. The confident colour combinations are new and exciting and her mix of patterns and prints is clever and confident. She says her design is a reflection of her "HAPPY" self.  

I can see how that is true, I feel happy just looking at her photos!

 Carolyn Quartermaine



Carolyn Quartermaine

I bought Carolyn Quartermaine's first book unwrapped when I lived in London in my twenties. She is a London based textile designer and stylist and I instantly fell in love with her prints and the beautiful colours of the fabrics she uses - mainly silks and floaty chiffons. She mixes her fabrics back with vintage pieces and antique furniture in a palette of vibrant pastels and gold. She is truly an original and innovative designer who has kept reinventing her style over the years. She  has appeared in magazines all over the world including the cover of Vogue Living.

Scandinavian Design

The Style Files

I love the crisp, clean lines of Scandinavian design. Their minimal approach using bleached timbers, distressed furniture, lots of white on white and accents in warm timber tones is a clever mix of sophisticated European styling and the Hamptons design approach. The result is never hard edged or too sharp because of the combination of new with old. Antiques, recyled timber, vintage pieces and second hand market finds add warmth, character and personality. The layering of whites and neutral tones with minimal colour, results in a crisp, modern look that has been adopted by fans all over the globe.
