How to create a home that feels like a holiday home despite the weather

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We had a gorgeous lunch yesterday with Mandy and Rupert, Founders of HUSH that felt very summery and woke up this morning to a weather that feels very automnal… #depressingweatherI wish we could just all embrace a proper Spring, we all need it!One of the reasons I like our home to be white is that it gives me the feeling that we are in a holiday house and to achieve a relaxed feel, I use natural fabrics with texture in the bedroom like these stonewashed linen duvet covers and white crockery and tableware in the kitchen.Which brings me to tell you about our new white ceramic bowls from our NATURALS // collection which are selling like cupcakes.We’ve received so many orders for these that they temporarily went out of stock but I’m pleased to say they will be back in stock at the end of the week along with this crinkled vase and these beautiful wooden chopping boards (yes! we managed to source more of the medium so you can now have a complete …

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX: COFFEE TABLE

When it comes to decorating, I think it’s very liberating to allow yourself to think outside the box.I used this pretty owl vase mostly as a pen holder and until recently this stool was the perfect side table to have by my sofa.My inspiration for the shot above was a coffee table made out of African stools spotted in an old Living Etc issue (circa 1998). Unfortunately I can not check the credits any longer as I threw away lots of magazines when we moved from Bristol back to London but I’m pretty sure it was a Dutch house.In all these years searching for similar stools, I only came across dark African stools or lighter ones that cost an arm until I used this wooden stool.What do you think? Would you mind sharing what ‘outside the box thinking’ you’ve done at home with your decoration?I’m also very excited that the God of Design aka Philippe Starck has chosen 20 of this stool to decorate his new MAMA SHELTER in Istambul. How cool is that!!?? I wish I …

Rocking the Industrial vibe…

 If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a few behind-the-scene shots! This week, I styled new things from our Industrial Chic collection and I had a ball because there is nothing else more inspiring than styling products you really love.And I love this clothes rail and this new stool!The Form table (pic 2 & 3) is now sold out but will be back in stock end of June. The Rock Flag print is from here and the Bell pendant light is a new light from Normann (be careful the large model is actually huge!)What do you think?  // Photography: Francois Kong | Styling: Karine Kong  http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs

BEHIND THE SCENE VIA INSTAGRAM

If you’re not on Instagram, here are a few shots from today’s photoshoot with Francois.We photographed first this pure nature wooden stool because I wanted to do something special with it in my lounge and then went back to the office to shoot new products from our collection including this beautiful industrial stool and the BELL pendant lamp (which by the way, had a minor accident during the photoshoot so we will add it to our sample section soon).// Products featured: Monkey print | Rock Flat print | Form table | Knot chair | Bell lamp | Wire letter tray http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs

I would love to get your feedback on our latest catalogue

Here is my latest baby…A small yet beautiful, inspiring catalogue, packed with styling & decorative ideas to show you how to create inspiring, welcoming and beautiful family homes (you can view it on issuu here).While it’s lot of hard work to put something like this together (and it costs an arm!), I thoroughly enjoy the creative process and it’s quite amazing after months of hard work for us to hold a print copy in our hands (no it doesn’t break my heart when you want to be taken off our list…#just a little #ItTotallyBreaksMyHeart #labouroflove #justkidding).We won an Award with our first catalogue but I’m specially proud of this one because this time, I was able to style everything so there isn’t a single spread I don’t like but I have my favourites…OK.. I’m in love with our NATURALS // moodboard on page 4 & 5, it’s a collection that I sourced when I went to Paris at the beginning of the year and that really inspired me.Unfortunately, one of these gorgeous chopping boards is already sold out …
