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.

Designers Guild – William Yeoward Philippine Wallpapers
I can’t get enough blue and white in my home, so when I saw Designers Guild’s William Yeoward Philippine Wallpapers, it was instant love and instant “want”.
I haven’t quite worked out why William Yeoward have named this range “Philippine Wallpapers”, possibly they are printed in the Philippines but I do feel some of the designs are reminiscent of the hand blocked indigenous fabrics I saw when I lived in SE Asia. They describe their new designs as “large scale and unique, geometric, floral, striped designs. What is definitely unique about them is the range of printing techniques used to produce these papers, some even appear hand blocked. The range consists of a mix of “dramatic modern florals, textural stripes and geometric tiling”. The colour palette covers hues of rich indigo and includes more earthy tones reminding me of the ochre hue I often use in my floral paintings.
I don’t know about you but I have definitely been inspired and would love to wallpaper behind the bed in our guest room once my son moves out. I will definitely be choosing blue and white and totally in love with the wallpaper to the right of image 3, “Felixton Denim”.
