Helma Bongenaar decorative plate window
My grandmother didn’t walk she glided. I rarely saw her feet because they were hidden beneath that most beautiful shimmering silk saris sometimes detailed with real gold thread and beautiful peacock blues and greens. She was small like me and used to seemingly float along to wherever she was going ... Read More

art first interior design project
Curious Egg was born out of my passionate belief in the power of art to make life better.  Our homes are our sanctuaries – the place we retreat to after a busy day, where we feel safe and can truly be ourselves. The things we choose to surround ourselves with ... Read More

Monachyle Mhor hotel room
Running through the veins of the most creative entrepreneurs, I think, is a mantra that goes like this, ’ in times of uncertainty, innovate and diversify’ and in the first of my new ‘Creative Minds’ posts, I’ve chosen a special place created by a innovative farming family who have done just that ...

Typographical garden art
Type based or typographical art is still the popular choice for eclectic interiors and pocket sized 'street' philosophy can now be seen on at least one wall in just about every home in the UK - some specimens more creative and insightful than others I have to say and don’t get me ... Read More
Daniel Pirsc in his porcelain worshop
Porcelain wallpaper - are you thinking what I was thinking? What could that possibly look like?  The idea was starting to make my head hurt so whilst on our travels through Europe, we decided to seek out the maker of this magic and ask him to explain himself and this ... Read More
2017 Home Styling - 5 Retro Art Movements You Need To Know
Hey my first blog post of the year woohoo! January is gone ( hopefully along with its weather!) - always a month of resetting, reflecting and forward planning and now that we stand peering out at the year ahead, it may seem a bit frivolous to be talking about interior ... Read More
Inigo Scout
There’s something about saying the word blanket that sounds comforting. B-l-a-n-k-e-t, it just peels off the tongue rises into the air and gently comes to rest around your shoulders with a soft ’t’. 'Onomatopoeia' I think they call it - always wondered when I'd have a need to use that word! But ... Read More
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 ... Read More
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 ...

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 ... Read More
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. While I was musing over this, I saw an ... Read More
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 ... Read More
An Amazonian Garden Fantasy
This year for my birthday, I got a beautiful book, ‘The Cabaret of Plants - Botany and the Imagination’ by Richard Mabey - how great a title is that? Now it has to be said that I do actually judge a book by its cover which is why I’ve never converted to ebooks ... Read More
