For me, artwork is an intrinsic part of any interior scheme.

It sets the scene and can give impact to an otherwise dull space. Scale is as important as content. Get it wrong and a piece will lose all of its grandeur and impact becoming lost in an expansive surrounding space.

For this reason, I tend to have bespoke artwork made for each project, prints are scaled to the space and canvas paintings are commissioned to suit the colours and layout of the scheme.


What’s a sofa without a stylish cushion arrangement? Not only are cushions functional essentials, they’re also your sofa’s seasonal outfit changes – a way to dress up, dress down or style any sofa just as you’d like it. 

A new set of cushions can revive an older sofa, change up your style and even transform a whole sofa arrangement. Don’t underestimate the power of these sofa staples whichever way you style them.

Behind the brand: Ralph Lauren Home

Think of a classic American home style and there’s one name which stands out – Ralph Lauren.

The iconic brand is the epitome of fine living. With its genteel touches and timeless designs, it draws on the style of high society.

“I design for the home the way I design for a man or woman. The same attention to detail and the same eye for what is beautiful and unique – Ralph Lauren”

Six reasons artificial flowers are a good idea

I love real flowers. I do. But there is a time and a place for artificial flowers too, especially luxury artificial flowers. Whilst real flowers offer invigorating scents and the satisfaction of flower arranging, these less perishable but equally reviving floral beauties offer a few outstanding benefits of their own. It may be one of the best decor investments you ever make.
