Pushing Perennial Boundaries

Mothers Day BloomsMiranda Priestly may not have thought that spring florals were particularly ground breaking, however the creative set on the London flower scene are pushing the perennial boundaries to create arrangements that are notably exquisite. With florals quite literally breaking out of their vases and popping up everywhere including the spring/summer shows (400,000 delphiniums encasing the Dior show anyone?!) flowers are once again at the forefront of fashion; and what better time to get educated about these botanic beauties than just before Mothers Day, she deserves the best after all..

LIVING IN STYLE

After sleepless hours and weeks of not being able to find the right photo frames, this living room, is finally finished.
I’ve been helping my sister design her compact living space for the previous few months, finding little bits either new or vintage that will make up this eclectic space. It is actually finished. Here are a few little shots of the finished space; my favourite piece has to be the silk Burberry scarf that we had framed showing a map of London.

WORK STATION

I’ve always thought it to be really intriguing to see where people work. Whether it’s an office at work or a desk from the comfort of your own home, the way people work affects what they do, how productive they are and really gives an insight into who you are.

WHITE CHRISTMAS

‘Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more’ – Dr. Seuss
With only hours to go until the big day is upon us, here are some photos to inspire that last little bit of Christmas spirit. Christmas is not only about the presents and the decorations (although they are very fun), but the main joy for me is having my family all together for a few days over the festive period. A time when we can talk about the year previous and the year ahead and enjoy each others company; give and receive gifts and basically not worry about anything for one whole day.

HOW TO – SET A CHRISTMAS TABLE


“Zak I want to do something different for the Christmas table this year!”
Laying out the table for Christmas lunch every year is always something that I enjoy and both me and my mother love nothing more than a traditional Christmas with all the trimmings. Having had the table set up the same for the previous few years, she called me recently and asked how we could spruce things up. Here is some inspiration, on how to switch up your table decorations for various schemes and bring the sparkle back to your Christmas.
