Let’s Gossip about some gorgeous spaces…

You are about to learn that, when it comes to TV viewing options, I am most definitely 31 going on 21, but I’m hoping you’ll forgive my tastes in TV programmes, as today my inspiring images come from none other than the Gossip Girl set.

This post was actually inspired by a client of mine who spotted a desk in the glamorous Lily Van Der Woodsen’s study (and let’s be honest who doesn’t love her style) with a note saying “I want this desk please!”

Having trawled TV websites for some further good quality shots of the Van Der Woodsen’s Upper East side apartment, I hope you’ll agree that these really are gorgeously put together rooms (and therefore please do try to forgive me for the teen TV viewing!). S x

This is the desk, isn't it gorgeous? And I love the chandelier and Missoni covered Eames chair too


I absolutely love the burlesque vibe of the shaded chandelier against the shaggy red carpet and the beautiful Norman Cherner chairs


The turquoise throw, splash of red on the back walls and Tom Dixon's fresh fat bowl made from extruded plastic give this room its wow factor


I love nothing more than filling a table with books, pictures and other trinkets - this one would be an absolute dream to fill!



From fashion to fixtures

For my interview at KLC School of Design I was set the task of creating a mood board for the re-design of a Fashion PR’s studio apartment. The challenge got me thinking about the inevitable similarities between fashion design and interior design. Constantly changing seasons, the need for flexibility, personalisation of trends, low/ high maintenance looks and ever-adored classics, are just a few of the things that make both design worlds ‘tick’.

The five fashion images below inspired me to trawl my files in search of spaces that reflect the gorgeousness of each wonderfully individual, fashion-forward look. From the splash of colour on Sarah Jessica Parker’s kitchen unit inspired by the luscious redhead, to the natty ‘nauti-ness’ of ‘Gossip Girl’  Blair’s ensemble, which inspired the seaside bedroom at the Tresanton Hotel in Cornwall, each fashion shot enabled me to channel a different feel, and find a collection of five diverse, fashion-inspired interiors that I hope you’ll enjoy.
