Double height ceilings = win!

In this day and age property in London is at a premium (and that is to completely understate the situation!).  As a result it is rare to see a genuine double height ceiling that has not been converted into 2 floors.  With that in mind feast your eyes on this monster of a London room: […]

Beautiful house in North Carolina

This stunning home in North Carolina works for a number of reasons: obviously it is initially aided by its incredible surroundings but, even given this, the design team have done a great job of creating an beautiful living space.  The use of glass in this project is not surprising given the view but I really […]

Architects…you got to love them!

I love working with architects, I love being able to bounce our ideas of another person and bring a project to life however for me architects, for the most part anyway, are not very good at turning their baby (the design of the house) in to a home.  So although all the basics are there […]

Awesome house to finish the week!

This is a very daring Design which works in perfect harmony – the combination of the stone and the wood works amazingly and the large windows provide the property with ample lighting.  This, for me, is what modern Design is about: innovative, fresh, against the grain yet practical.

Not to long ago we were coming up for hallway ideas for one of our favourite clients!  The interesting thing about working on a hallway is that, unlike in most conventional rooms, you cannot view all of the products simultaneously.  As a result, when designing hallways one must approach the design in a more linear […]

Ice Drops In June

I was recently in the ‘Wired’ Custom Lighting showroom at Chelsea looking for a very special bespoke chandelier.  For this particular project we decided to spend a large proportion of the budget on a single item – the logic behind such thinking is that if the item in question becomes a centrepiece it will come […]

Very striking Romanian Design!

I was really struck by this Design.  It is so clean and minimal but without forsaking style.  I particularly like how the bed sits upon the wooden boards – it is a reminder of simple living whilst the fact that they are ‘floating’ reminds us that the Design is contemporary.  I love the colour and […]
