Wake up your walls

Have you seen the wonderful short film put together by John Lewis to encouage and give advice on combining statement wallpaper with your paint choices? It features the gorgeous GP & J Baker Nympheus which I love, particularly as its hard to believe it was created in 1915. So if you've got any DIY projects planned for this bank holiday weekend it worth having a look.

My kind of Monday

Saw this and fell in love. Dark walls, great view, yellow upholstery, oak chevron flooring and vintage furniture….. bliss

Eating out should visually entice

I’m a real believer in being seduced by your surroundings. If I like it, I LOVE it and if it’s meh, I seriously DISLIKE it. I can’t help it; even though I try to curb my inclination to critique it is usually readily available, wanting to join the party.  For me personally, when I go out to eat the environment in which I enjoy my food is as important as the food itself.  {I’ve probably made all the foodies out there shake their heads in disbelief}  That doesn’t mean that it has to be fancy or white table clothed, just considered.

The luxury steakhouse Beef Bar has restaurants in Monaco, Berlin and Mexico City. Emil Humbert and Christophe Poyet designed the spaces using geometry and symmetry whilst creating great focal points such as the lighting in bronze and alabaster, a tarnished metal bar and lots of matt black and shades of gold.
