RED is known to increase the heart rate, to encourage lively conversation and to stimulate the appetite. It is no wonder why RED is used time and time again in restaurants and
I’ve shared in my previous blogs and on social media that I will always be a moderate minimalist. Most, if not all, of my inspiration comes from the simplicity of the Japanese design aesthetic. How do I keep my interiors interesting, from falling flat or washing out? Texture, texture and more texture! However, jus

I thought, as a young, woman that it would be far too restrictive to dress that way! Roll the clock 20 years later…….and here I am! Yours tru
Today, I tuned into COLOR HIVE. COLOR HIVE is a UK study that brings to light color trends and how they come to be. The 2020-2021 color trend focus is on the environment-Water scarcity, Transforming e-Waste(tech upgrades) and Designing for Death (memorials). A term “Under the Dome” describes a new model for living-a pla
Are you a trend follower? Impulsive to get the latest craze in your home décor? Are you now feeling pressured to redecorate your mid-century modern home (that was a long-running trend!) and turn it into a “Maxed-Out” haven? Fret not! You can hang on to your beloved mid-century pieces and still have room to add a b
