I’ve had quite a break over Christmas and New Year but back now and kicking the year off with a project from one of my favourite designers… Mixing pattern, textures and materials are the key to Studio McGee’s designs, for example juxtaposing a leather sofa next to a linen sofa. A dark almost black buttoned […]
Another fabulous project from Studio Mcgee, contemporary meets traditional… What’s not to love about this space, a mix of contemporary pieces and traditional give it a modern look with a heritage nod. Textures are big with Studio McGee and if you look closely at the coffee table in image 5 you will see it has […]
Crib Creative If we want to make a personal good impression we will want to dress our best, this can also be said of the first impression one receives as they step inside our home… When someone visits our home for the first time, it gives them an impression of the person we are, it […]
Described as “Cape Cod meets West Indies”, another fabulous project by one of my favourite design companies. The exterior architecture of this new build leans towards Hamptons, however Black Band Design have also injected a tropical feel inspired by quote, the “vibrant waters of the Caribbean”. When planning a new build by oneself with no interior designer […]
1. Image via Mercer Interior The word, ‘boho’ may conjure up a riotous mix of colours and patterns, muddle these together in a messy but creative way and throw in some greenery and you may have the boho of the past. However, today boho can be far more chic, in fact…..’boho chic’. ‘Boho’ stems from the word […]
“Casual and sophisticated, modern and timeless, serene but colourful” is how the designer describes this relaxed, South Carolina home. The designers, Guest House Studio, have used varying shades of blue for this project, with paint, soft furnishing and artwork. Blue is ‘cool’ on the colour charts but can evoke a moody or calming affect when you […]

A Beach House Beauty by Blackband Design
Another stunning beach style project by one of my favourite interior design company’s, Blackband Design. This Newport Beach house has fabulous texture and colour and must be a dream come true to the home owner’s.
Blackband Design have won the ‘Best of Houzz’ annually since 2014, which is not surprising as their designs are most definitely unique and their work very popular. I love how they mix styles of furniture, the way they incorporate colour and the textures they use in thier interiors. This Newport Beach house is typical to Blackband’s take on ‘beach style’ and incorporates all they are about.
I hope you feel inspired by this lovely home, I especially love the black, bamboo table in the entrance way and the gorgeous vignette in the second image. If you are interested in Blackband Design taking on your project, please hop over to their website, Blackbanddesign.com or their Houzz site, (link above).
With regards to my own beach house, the build has progressed to the extent it should be fully landscaped in a couple of weeks. I went down the week before last and later in the week I will be sharing a sneak peek of the kitchen and one of the bathrooms…Oh, and my gorgeous barn door which is now hanging.
