In the ‘spirit’ (sorry!) of Halloween, today’s Friday’s Favourites are Orange and Black.  Believe it or not, I have found some beautiful spaces where these two colours are used, usually in combination with a little (or a lot) of white. via via ML Interior Design via Greg Natale Mona Ross Berman via House…(Read More)

Bone Inlay Furniture


I have always admired bone inlay furnishings. I don’t know whether it’s the colour, the beautiful Indian craftsmanship and the fact that my late Granny was Anglo-Indian, or all of the above.  To own a special piece has long been on my Wish List and last week, this beauty finally made its…(Read More)

Copper and gold tones have stolen the interiors limelight in recent times but today’s Favourites celebrates a timeless pairing, Silver and Grey.  While grey is also having its moment of glory as a versatile neutral, silver, often seen as chrome or nickel has proven its worth.  It brings the glamour of a metallic to…(Read More)

Slipcover Chairs


Slipcover Chairs have been on my design ‘radar’ for some time now.  They give a relaxed vibe and therefore are often seen in coastal homes.

The resort has recently been renovated and…(Read More)

Today’s post is about Black Internal Doors.  I recently noticed that these were a recurring…(Read More)

According to the Dulux colour forecast for 2015 (from Interiors Addict), pink and green are right on trend.  Pink is such a versatile colour and I love it bold or in a softer pastel.  Natural colours such as green are also set to dominate.  When combined with white, stronger shades of the two can create…(Read More)
