MY WORK Interiors Trend Report – Real Homes magazine March 2015
Archive for January 2015
Doing research for my Stylish New Looks for Lighting feature for Real Homes magazine (February issue, out now) I was reminded how important it is to choose the right type of lighting for every room: task – focused lighting such as a desk lamp or overhead for kitchens; accent – to highlight certain features or areas such as a painting; ambient – to create a mood and feeling of a room. This rather chic ambient Devon Floor Lamp from John Lewis would look amazing in any room at this time of year. It’s yours for £130.
The trend for eccentric wallpapers is huge this year in interiors – but not just for feature walls (so early Noughties). Instead I love the look on two, three or all walls (even put wallpaper on the ceiling if you keep the walls in a matching paint colour). Two of my favourites are from The Graduate Collection which showcases products from exciting new designers coming out of UK universities. The Dachshund wallpaper would be perfect in a hallway, boot room or similar small space; while the Marie Antoinette design would look great in a bedroom, large bathroom or dining room (look closely, and you’ll see how quirky/eccentric it is!). I think they’re genius.
