Mario Gerth

Photography is enjoying major superstar status as the choice art form for the coolest, most chic interiors and since we recently launched the incredible work of German artist Mario Gerth in our very own Art Room, I thought it might be interesting to take you a little behind the scenes of his creative process and share some details of his travel stories from his journey through India and Africa.…

Create A Little Magic This Autumn

It’s been said that all it takes is a lovely display of pumpkins outside a grocer’s shop for me to stop in mid sentence, stare whimsically mouth open for a few long seconds and forget entirely what I was saying – it’s called in our house, ‘a pumpkin moment’ .…

Discover Tatine

Oh no! I thought I’d have time to squeeze in another ‘garden’ post just before summer is deemed officially over but with our new Autumn/Winter collection tapping its fingers impatiently, waiting to be uploaded to the site, along with me irresponsibly running off to London Design festival and shirking my duties, I kind of missed that boat – oh well, I’ll just have to save it for spring ( if you’re on instagram you’ll have seen I now have seven lovely jungle style bamboos planted in a row …well it’s a start!)

We have to accept that even our lovely Indian summer is closing the gate quietly and autumn is pretty much here – give or take a faded green leaf or two.…

Decorating With Accent Walls

Don’t know if you’ve heard but apparently decorating with ‘feature’ walls is out. Tchsssh so harsh! – it’s hard not to feel a bit sorry for these discarded heroes of fashion, cast aside and sniggered at with a ‘to-think-anyone-thought-that-looked-good’ smugness that only comes when we know the evidence of our own decorating faux pas have been swiftly covered up.…

8 Tips For Curating Art in Your Home…

 

I thought I’d share a few tips I have on curating art for your home. People sometimes get put off by the word ‘curate’ thinking it’s something that takes place in an art gallery by a professional and not for the everyday home.…

HenPower meets Curious Egg

‘ HenPower? Ageing? What on earth has that got to do with art or interiors?!’, I hear you shout. Well… more than you might think so bear with me while I introduce you to an amazing idea.

When we set up Curious Egg, we wanted to connect three distinct elements under one roof, interiors, art and wellbeing because we feel these affect one another in a big way and can genuinely change lives.…

The Stone Hunter

There is something intriguing about a man who hunts stones for a living. Most of us have strolled along beaches and half-consciously picked up a pebble that has ‘spoken’ to us maybe through its eye-catching colour or seductively smooth texture. It’s a casual gesture but a primal one and whether we are aware of this or not, to gather and manipulate stones is an innate activity that has connected us with the earth since human life began.…

New Technologies & The Handmade

With London Craft Week just behind us and craft fairs coming into full bloom, ‘handcrafted’ is a bit of a hot topic at the moment as are ‘ new technologies’ – a slightly odd couple to be sharing the creative industry headlines.…

Scaling the Walls

I have always felt bigger than I really am. Ok at 5ft 1″ I knew wasn’t tall but it has literally taken years for it to occur to me I could actually be seen as a ‘small person’. That’s the funny thing about scale, its all about perception and illusions (…no, not delusions thank you) if you make it believable then people don’t notice.…
