Put a Hex-agon on Your Room

B&B italia hive collection

Hex-quisite Design.  Design Hex and the City.  Interiors Hex-traordinary.  Please, someone stop me.  The bad puns just keep popping into my head.  In addition to geometrics generally, it seems the interiors world has gone crazy for hexagons, specifically. One of my favourite mid-century modern designer, Isamu Noguchi, created a design classic […]

Moody Rooms, Warm Metallics

The interiors trend for warm metals is still going strong.  I think they look particularly striking when paired with a dark background.  This combination can show a strong Asian look. Warm metallics and dark rooms can also create a very contemporary style. The bronze lamp here really brings the charcoal […]

Oh Buoy! Nautical Salvage Style

As an island, buoys are a fairly commonplace sight on Martha’s Vineyard.  Some stylish islanders, however, are finding creative ways to use buoys around their house and gardens.  I’ve heard some of the older islanders are astonished at the prices you can get now for disused or damaged buoys!  The […]

Do you love the colour red?  Well, continuing on from the theme that fashion trends translate into home decor, we are seeing lots of red in interiors these days. Red just provides such a shot of high-octane glamour.  Let’s see how that works in the home. Are you ready to […]

Living on the Edge

the wife is always right

Punk is back!  Of course, if you happen to walk by Camden High Street, you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s never left. The Met Ball earlier in the year had Punk: Chaos to Couture as its theme.  You can check out Vogue’s coverage of the celebrity outfits here.  It’s reappeared […]
