Explore your comforts



This wallpaper has been in this property for over 78 years! With a touch of paint to freshen it up it subtly corresponds with the scheme. Soft greys take authority for the larger pieces of furniture, whilst metallic golds reflect light outwards. The textures here are warm and inviting. It’s important not to have the same textures throughout, and instead a varied amount of lush fabrics. The symmetry of the books here are important to make your eyes zoom in on the bowls, sofa and pillow arrangements.

How the EU referendum will effect Interior Designers


Leaving Europe would be a leap into the unknown for millions of people across the UK who work in the creative industries, and for the millions more at home and abroad who benefit from the growth and vibrancy of Britain’s cultural sector.

Exporters and importers from the EU are more likely to have a strong opinion on staying in the EU. Aside from the risk of restrictive trade practices such as trade barriers or tariffs or quotas  they may need to work harder to position the UK as a compelling and attractive business proposition.

From the smallest gallery to the biggest blockbuster, many of us have worked on projects that would never have happened without vital EU funding or by collaborating across borders. Britain is not just stronger in Europe, it is more imaginative and more creative, and our global creative success would be severely weakened by walking away.

Brexit has been a much talked about issue in 2016 and the result on friday will determine what businesses will thrive, and those that will collapse. I fear that Interior Designers like myself won’t get the opportunity to show their skills with others losing job;, funding becoming impossible and exporting and importing taxes becoming ludicrous. Whatever vote you chose, make sure it’s the right choice.
