Summer

The great British summer, well it was last night with all the little parties going on in the design quarter, from Chelsea harbour, weaving my way up Lots road, and sliding into various gatherings along the kings road, to discuss exciting new projects was heaven, given it was such a beautiful warm and sunny evening -   Of course the champagne helps…

Seriously though, it always surprises and delights me to see new and varied ideas being presented to a plethero designers & architects alike.  It would be so easy to become complacent, with the over whelming feeling you “have seen it all” and I would be the first to admit after 20 years in the design industry, we, of course  see variations on old pieces, but that in itself is creative & lovely to encourage designers to “think outside box”

From the deep ocean blue Ikat fabrics and complementary orange linen bursts of colour, I’m excited to be using these designs & palettes in my current projects.  Working on the most stunning house in Palma along with it’s charming Casita (guest house) I’ve used a palette of misty greys, warm whites with hints from the sea and ocean bed by moving away from the fashionable, but somewhat predicable white washed walls, to painting them in mortar and limestone from Little green paint company – an all time favourite of mine

With the triple height of the main house, it has given me the most wonderful opportunity to introduce the Bocci lighting to cascade down the wall highlighting the wonderful height & enormity of the room without overwhelming it …

And in order to continue the clarity of the scheme,  I decided to accessorise only in white with unusual finds from the four corners of the earth – quite literally in some cases…

So  - as we travel towards the completion date of our Majorcan project, with containers bursting with gorgeous bespoke pieces, driftwood tables, Porta Romana Lamps and artwork from Trowbridge, I will relax back into the summer of 2016
