Burberry Magic

I have been looking forward to London Fashion Week, as it's a great time for me to get some inspiration. My favourite had to be the Burberry Prorsum Autumn/Winter collection 2010, which was launched yesterday. Again, Christopher Bailey gets it right, pure genius!

The collection had a slicker and harder feel than usual and played on military silhouettes and lots of detail. "Aviation was the pivotal inspiration for the collection," Bailey said. "There was lots of fabric manipulation and lots of detail."

I absolutely adored the colours and textures that he used and not only would I love to wear them but they would look great in interior spaces......So feast your eyes to a few of my favourites even though I loved them all.


Ohhhhh now that jacket would look great as a rug. I can also imagine a cool upholstered armchair with that dress.......



Another glorious rug!!! Loving the dress....Great accent colour!!!



Gorgeous colour!!!



These two colours work great together and the textures used are just yummy!!



Stunning and edgy. Love the boots!!

Surface Bound

I was very much looking forward going to the Surface design show last week, as it is the only event to focus exclusively on interior and exterior solutions for building design.

There was such as buzz at the show, I suppose I wasn’t the only one extremely excited at this event. There was so much to take in as they were showcasing hundreds of the most innovative and creative surface products currently on the market.

One of my favourite products at the show was Murapec’s latest interior surface range ‘impressions’. This is a beautiful new range of sculptured decorative panels offering 11 exclusive designs, available in over 50 different laminate finishes.

Ideal for commercial wall coverings and interiors, impressions panels add real impact and atmosphere to any interior space, without cutting back the budget.

For more information take a look at their website, http://www.muraspec.com, you won’t be disappointed!


It can also look great in commercial spaces.


This is one of my favourite Designs


Another favourite product of mine was Krion. This is a new solid surface from Porcelanosa Group. It is very hard, compact, non porous and fully homogeneous. Krion comes in two new versions: Stone and Lux. What's great about this stone is that it can be fully restored to its original appearance. Even cigarette burns can be removed with normal detergent.

Krion is an ideal surface for kitchens as it has an extraordinary resistance to chemical agents and also to heat and sunlight. What is also fantastic about this product is that it is an anti-bacterial material thanks to its composition, 'additive free-bacterial product'. Therefore any bacteria present cannot develop and dies.

My favourite aspect of this surface is that seamless joints are created; therefore it gives the illusion that it is made up of a single section.

Krion is available in 86 different finishes. Sounds pretty much like a dream surface............
