As London Craft Week got underway across the city, GUBI unveiled its first UK showroom last week. Housed within an elegant Grade II-listed Georgian townhouse in London’s Clerkenwell, it’s a home away from home for the Danish brand, designed to create a cosy setting for their collection of considered furniture and accessories. GUBI House is conceived just as if it was a real, genuine home and it’s so inviting you almost don’t want to leave! The impressive showroom is spread over four floors, with a series of intimate rooms, each with their own feel. I can’t think of any other showroom space in ..read more

I always think that interior spaces should be designed with tactility in mind. After all, we experience our homes as much with our sense of touch as with our sight. The key to making a neutral scheme feel cosy, inviting and characterful, rather than bland or boring, is in embracing texture and materiality. I believe you want to create a rich sensory experience that goes beyond just aesthetics, whether that’s through the use of natural materials, soft edges or warm surfaces. My dining space, here, has simple bones – plain, off white walls, a built-in bench seat and a streamlined minimalist dini ..read more

When I’m sourcing for clients or simply scrolling through Pinterest, I often come across lots of lovely things but never end up sharing. So rather than gatekeeping, here’s 10 beautiful things on my interior wishlist, from textured throws and striped pyjamas to modular sofas and cosy armchairs.

The great thing about our extension is the space and flexibility it affords us. When I was designing the new addition to our Victorian terraced house, I wanted to create a relaxed, informal space that could adapt and evolve with our needs, whether that was in response to our mood throughout the day or according to our changing requirements as we grow into the space. Typically, rooms in a home are clearly defined – bedrooms are for sleeping, dining rooms for dining and living rooms for living. But, I wanted to let go of the rules and create a space that didn’t define what you could do in there ..read more

[Ad] The story behind the French brand Ligne Roset and the iconic Togo sofa

We probably all recognise the familiar form of the Togo sofa – the curved embrace of the seat and the puppy-like folds of the fabric like a Sher Pai dog. The retro form is as iconic as the Wishbone chair or the Wassily chair, creating a statement in any room it finds itself in. I think it’s a design that says something about its owner, showing that you know something about design and don’t care for traditional rules that would set a sofa formally on legs. Indeed, a Togo is one of those pieces you strive for and aspire to – maybe something you would pin to your Pinterest board and dream of owni ..read more

It’s time for part three of my festive gift guide 2023 – today, focused on the hard to buy for. Ie. those people in your life who have everything and are a little on the picky side when it comes to aesthetics! I think in those cases it’s often best to pick experiences over material things, so you’re giving something that they can enjoy time and time again. So we’ve got a gallery membership, a basket weaving kit, a candle making kit, a magazine subscription, a wine selection case and more. 1. Attirecade shoe cleaning set, £35, Arket 2.
