Chinking cups and the clatter of plates die down, papers folded and discarded, everyone journeying back back to their abode, staff having well earned rest after a busy day. A the sun goes down a calm descends and Yao managed to get over to Mote House and take some photographs when it was quiet, or should I say in “lull” before the restaurant opens. This building is 18th century built in the typical Georgian proportions, a wonderful space to work with
Another project successfully completed by Inside Design Co, Tunbridge Wellls. This project took a long time to come to fruition but it’s finished at last. Set in the Derbyshire Dales its a real treasure………
This last week has been a real push, made much easier by such a friendly team helping us, always with a smile. Hours leading up to launch somewhat frantic, but it all came together in the end.
One very happy client thankfully
Here are a few last minute shots courtesy of Yao photography
More to follow when we visit again
Allthough I love colour and paint very colourful artworks, for interior spaces, especially the wall finishes I like a far more understated affair. I like to use colour that has no sense of time, does not denote a fashion “trend” but one that instills a sense of calmness, unseen, just “there” . You could liken it to blank canvas but that really demotes it I feel, I like to think it enhances the symmetry of the architecture, like putting on a tailored jacket to enhance your “shape”.
Its important for me that each piece of the “jigsaw” has integrity, it has a purpose, and that purpose for me is to create a sense of emotional wellbeing, this is where I source my designs from, happiness, feeling comfortable, feeling secure, and of course excitement.
Greys, Charcoal to silver, always have been a favourite, using the tonal values, rich, dark, and dramatic, to a much lighter airy feel. These images inspire me, they demonstrate what I feel, they are tear sheets from numerous media sources, elle decoracion and various american mags. Always on the look out for inspiration, not only from the media, but from nature, food and paintings, more on this later
George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg together design amazing interiors, based in Toronto and New York. These are some of their interior images, but look at their website for some very simple and stylishly impactful interiors.
totally into red at the moment, putting together some new interior schemes for a new project and finding red so inspiring
New design – fabric
What a unique concept. One can purchase the tiles separately and form a design unique to your specific location. Easily constructed by bending and joining the shapes with special “rubber bands”. I am sure you will agree the results are amazing.
Well I would love to, but John Galliano beat me to it! A few days ago this wonderful tree was unveiled at Claridges, the hotel in London know for its 30’s deco. Mr Galliano chose to make this giant 20 foot tree with a “frosty” feel to it, with ice blue exotica, snow leopard and parrots…………………. Quite stunning, especially the way it has been lit to cast wonderful shadows on the wall. I love it, what do you think?
