Yellow is the colour of happiness. It's sunshine, warmth, love and its bright! Chin up buttercup, its time to put some yellow in your home. Be inspired by your surrounds, imagine daffodils, lemon tart, canola fields and sunny days at the beach. Enjoy!

Green is probably my favourite colour (just quietly)! It is the colour of nature, its fresh and it is a little bit risky! Especially in Interiors. Be brave, it can seem daunting but it will make your space seem alive, cozy and eye catching. Enjoy!

Next up in our colour series is coral. We love the soft tones of peach, apricot and pastel pinks. You can use this colour on walls, floors, the outside of a building or in the smaller details of your house. Enjoy.

Christmas may be over, but that does not mean we have to stop injecting sparkle into our homes! I love the silly season and one of my favourite things about it is the fairy lights and unashamable amount of glitter floating around. I have been searching for some non-christmas sparkle inspiration and here are my top picks. Enjoy!

I was talking with some friends over Christmas about wanting to change the look of my bedroom. I want something that is impressive and inviting. One of my favourite things to do is relax in bed with the latest interior mags and a large plunger of coffee. I want to be surrounded by style and comfort but also something light and original.
Here is my favourite finds on Pinterest and some options we have in store for a fast and effective bedroom makeover!
I love the look of an upholstered bed head!

‘With a blank canvas, textiles can transform any setting into a fresh, new space.’
We hear you recently took a trip to India for work, what would your day look like in India?
Up early and eat the most delicious ‘masala dosa’ for breakfast. It is an Indian breakfast with paper thin crispy crepes with spicy potato filling. It really wakes you up! Spend time with suppliers designing ranges including fabrics, colour palette and block printed patterns. The Indians are very hospitable and there is always ‘Chai’ on offer to keep you going. We try and stop for lunch and love visiting ‘Latitude’ the café on top of Good Earth in the Khan Market in Dehli. It is a must every trip. Salty lime sodas are a favorite! Off to another supplier - taking photos out of the taxi as I go. Camels on roads, monkeys on power lines are all in a days work. Return to the hotel and enjoy a well deserved Gin and Tonic or two.
Shopping in India can be fabulous - what was your best buy?
A beautiful hand stitched vintage wall hanging that is massive and hangs on the wall at home – it was so heavy I had to ship it back with stock.
Eating a ‘thalis’ (which is a selection of all different tastings) by candlelight on a rooftop Haveli in Jaipur
Finish this sentence, 'a trip to India is not complete without...'
Getting lost in the Kinari Bazaar, literally the ‘trimmings and trinkets’ market in Old Delhi.
Where do you find inspiration?
All around from trips in Taxi's to the incredibly talented people we work with.
Most memorable car trip?
Driving home down a dirt road from dinner near the Amber Fort in Jaipur, we literally came across an elephant coming home from work at the fort. His master stopped and he was poking his trunk in the car windows and we were able to get out and meet him!
Favourite colours from the trip?
The Saris the women wear are incredibly beautiful and the colours always inspiring. Hot Pinks, Orange, Yellows and even the Neon colours are on trend there!

For those of you like us, who have regular family and friends visiting (or in my case babysitting) you will appreciate the need for a stylish, yet comfortable guest bedroom. The simplest things can make the biggest difference in a bedroom for example, a jar of gorgeous flowers next to the bed, some great design books to browse thorough in the early morning sun, or an antique map or original abstract to create a talking point.
Colourful bedding, a special cushion and some fun towels will complete your guest room and show your visitors you really appreciate their company!
If your visitors are the type who often arrive without much notice, have some quality faux flowers on standby to pop on the bedside table to add that extra special touch.

We enjoyed the delights of florist Jane Lampe of Floreat Floral at last weekend's Jumbled Floral Styling Workshop. Jane worked her magic by showing us the ease and simplicity of flower arranging that is quite simple and nowhere near contrived.
By following a few simple design tips, we were all thrilled to see how ordinary blooms from the garden can be turned into stunning arrangements (even if we do say so ourselves!)
The favourite blossoms included the humble rosemary bush, along with crab apple branches and simple daisies. It seems that you don't have to spend a fortune to end up with a florist's touch in your home.
The food was delicious, the champagne and coffees delightful, but the warmest feedback came in terms of the lovely company we shared. Yes, it's true - girls really do love an excuse to get together.
The feedback from our guests included "I really enjoyed the workshop, especially the relaxed atmosphere and the delicious food and bubbles - such a great afternoon."

Geraldine James, says in her book Creative Display, "If you love something enough, show the world how much by displaying it for all the world to see." We are big believers in mixing textures and materials on walls and love spaces that show the personality of their creator. It's great if you are a well travelled person and have carefully selected items from around the world that tell a story. It is just as wonderful if you see something cute at your local shops and love it enough to add to your personal collection.
The key is to love your stuff. Wonder Walls by Sarah Bagnerakes makes sence of the trend, "Whatever your taste, it's about celebrating the unusual, the beautiful, the eccentric, and the simple." We love rugs on walls, vintage dresses, retro prints and original abtracts. Artwork that grabs your eye and you feel continually compelled to look at is what you should look for. And then complement with bits and pieces from your home. Kids artwork, a favourite tea towel, or your wedding veil. These are all things that will make your walls gorgeous and personal.
Here are some fabulous walls we have found online and think they are perfect for inspiring us all to get creative with our decorating.
