behind the scenes...







W.E Interiors on location at brixton east...


One of the best things about being freelance, is getting the opportunity to work with new brand names and helping them improve their presence on 'the high street.' W.E Interiors is already a hugely successful furniture supplier in its own right, but now seemed the right time for them to branch out under their own brand name and offer their services and product direct through their newly refurbished retail outlet.

In November 2013, W.E re-launched their store in Battersea Park Road, where they offer their full range of hand-made oak furniture, soft furnishings, accessories, artwork, rugs and a full interior design service. It's a super-friendly team who will advise you on their fully bespoke service. The company has a strong ethical ethos, which I admire and will go to great lengths to give you exactly what you want at the fairest price possible. 

Our shoot team consisted of photographer Paul Craig, in-house interior designer Lynn and manager Ian, myself and W.E's PR Lizzie Owen. The location was the very fabulous Brixton East and I've included some of my own instagram shots at the end of the post. It's a lovely place to shoot and a great venue for workshops and parties, so take a look at their link at the end of the post. Andy is your contact there and couldn't be more helpful!

a visit to...


amsterdam... design bloggers united dinner

I have been promising my friend Rene in Amsterdam a visit for so long and last weekend I finally made it! Tying in perfectly with another trip to the inspiring Woonbeurs and Meet The Blogger conference, my friend Toni of skandivis and I spent a long weekend in this fabulous city. I have a few more pictures to post next time of the rest of the weekend, but for now, here are some great shots of the dinner venue for the Design Bloggers United Dinner. They very kindly let me join them last minute in this amazing spot, for which I'm very grateful. When you next visit the city, make sure you try a pizza at Pistache-it's fabulous!


Design Bloggers United are a team of 9 super-dedicated bloggers, who somehow manage to maintain their blogs alongside their full-time jobs, along with organising very inspiring tours, highlighting design individuals and brands. It's a very cool idea and they all appear to work as a close family team, which is lovely. Their personal blogs are all very different and unique, of course, so do take a look at their links and The Design Bloggers Tour website below to be inspired!

behind the scenes...



on location...

at mapesbury road, nw2.

Wow-some places and their owners simply blow you away. Love vintage or not, you cannot help but be seriously impressed by the attention to detail in the home of super-stylist Marianne Cotterill. Used as a location house for film and stills, Marianne's totally individual go-for-it approach to interior design and styling is a result of many years scouring car boots, jumble sales and salvage yards. She just simply has the knack of spying the beauty in everything and is not afraid to mix and match to a level way beyond most people's radar. Of course, her stunning 6 bedroom late Victorian home not only makes the perfect surroundings, but positively enhances her eclectic mix of vintage and modern. 
From early 20th Century, art deco, mid century, to contemporary, if Marianne likes it, she will use it and it will look good. A lady who inspires other stylists without really trying-she just is what she is, down to earth and oh so talented. Brilliant!

Here are a few of my little instagram shots from our shoot at Mapesbury Road last week. Take a look at the full house portfolio and Marianne's beautiful website at the end of the post!

styling details...


homebarn at home...a sneak peek

What better way to start a new week than with
 some glorious vintage living. 
Today's post features a little sneak peek inside
 the fabulous home of Sarah Wilkie from HomeBarn. 

Situated in Little Marlow, Bucks, 
with a great country pub just down the road, 
HomeBarn is the perfect day out from London. 
Take a trip-you won't be disappointed.

Take a look at their first issuu magazine
 I produced for them here and visit their website here.

artists highlight...



bucks open studios...commercial square studios

Evie and I visited bucks open studios again today
 and as tomorrow is the final day, 
I've put all my photos together on one post.
 It's a long one and apologies in advance
 to the artists for not always getting the correct exposure,
 so some colours are a little off the original. 
More photography practice required!!
