The whole purpose of this blog is to share with you the things that get me up in the morning. I'd love it if when reposting them, that you link back to this site. (In fact, doing so would really make my day.)

Although the key thing to note about hanging picture frames is that, really, anything goes, it is important to get it the balance right. This website illustrates the basics perfectly: http://www.thinctanc.co.uk/design/hanging_pictures.html. Once you know the rules, disregarding them can have surprising and pleasing results, especially when working with awkward spaces and/or pictures that have a personal value.
I don't have the time to post this week, but I just had to put this up... Just divine - not sure I could live in it, but the proportions and layout are great. Here's the website(I found this via my favourite blog 'Desire to Inspire')
The Kings Cross home of fashion designer Roksanda Llincic and her husband Phil Bueno del Mesquita is a glam-chic space created with low-budget materials. It may surprise you to learn that is was once a loading bay - the way they've interpreted the space is pretty extraordinary.
Working closely with architect David Adjaye they have created an environment that explores the use of light and dark as focal points, defining an area and drawing the eye to a favoured piece. The result: an atmospheric space that is an undeniable extension of her fashion line. Gorgeous.
Here's a couple of mood boards that I made earlier this year. I love putting together images researched, along with drawings made onsite during the initial meetings with clients, and not forgetting the all important colour palette. I find this to be a far more productive way of visualising the conversation between myself and the client as apposed to rendered drawings which can be limiting when it comes to managing client expectations.
