100% Work

A great work studio example created by Vitra at the 100% Design exhibition at Earls Court.  Love the high table and chairs highlighted by the shallow pendant lights. Zeus makes an appearance in the kitchens section...

100% Design 2012

Exhibition season is here in the interiors and design world and it's a busy time of year.  Here are a few snapshots from 100% Design at Earls Court last week.  It was a bright, sunny day in London.   Approaching the exhibition centre.... The black clad entrance was lit by a luminous, white centrepiece and star-like constellations.  A walk through the long, black hole tunnel led to the show...  One of the first exhibitor stalls we came across.  Very retro... The retro theme was loud and clear at 100% Design and at Tent, London, another London design exhibition. More design exhibition photos and trends to follow.

Creative Clutter

Clutter isn't always ugly!  Here, packed wall-to-wall fitted shelving inside an alcove is displayed creatively and in such a way that feels interesting.  Clutter can be beautiful!

Love.... clever lighting

Clever lighting makes such a difference to any interior.  Here a plain, drab hallway is given that touch of drama with not only the lighting but also the floor-to-ceiling doors.   More lighting tricks....

Focus on Colour

Colour abounds in this symmetrical bedroom arrangement.  The dark flooring and undercurrent of grey avoids a flighty feel to the room and allows the depth of colour in the floral displays and linen to sing through. Another layer of interest is achieved with the textured wall and interesting ceiling pendant.  A colourful yet restful bedroom.   Have a super, restful weekend and thanks for reading : )

Lanky Lilies

Love these calla lilies elegantly posing in a tall glass vase and echoing the lanky light sticks around the room.  Adding height to a room gives a different dimension and an altogether uplifting feeling to the viewer.  Reminds me of some wallpaper I recently had installed at a client's home which gives a similar effect and feeling. This twig arrangement in a rectangular vase is simple yet highly effective in adding textural interest....
