Decorex – Lighting I loved

Isn’t it funny how you see something a week or so in advance
of when you need it and then just can’t get the image out of your mind. I’ve
been a bit like that with some of the amazing things I saw at Decorex this
year.  Decorex is the show for architects
and interior professionals where we all go to seek inspiration, to see the
latest interior trends and talk to new and existing suppliers.

I have a few projects on the go at the moment that need some
really specific things to bring them to life:  lighting is one of those things. Lighting can
really transform a room. It should be functional but can also be beautiful,
mood enhancing and task oriented. Here are some of the lighting ideas which
caught my eye…

 

 

a fabulous drift  wood lamp from David Hunt Lighting

and something to create a talking point!

Oh to have a hallway tall enough to accommodate this hanging light

I know exactly where these could go

and this bronze light is just superb

a quirky take on lights and mirrors from La Deun Luminaires

the amazing luminescent properties of ceramics from Boatswain

A real curiosity from the natural world, there’s no lighting here these beaufiul butterflies simple pick up the light within the room!

I work on interior design and garden design projects in

afield. I will design a garden to complement the architecture of your home and
choose the right landscaping materials to complement it. If you are frustrated
with endless searching for the right fabric or wallpaper and paint colours and
overwhelmed with the enormous choice, then allow me to make a handpicked
selection for you. I will complement the style of your existing rooms and
provide a few choice pieces which will bring the whole look together.

 

 

 

Decorex 2012 – Furniture I loved

Inspired by some of the leading design brands exhibiting at Decorex and also some of the small, young brands who were
exhibiting for the first time, I have returned to the office filled with energy and ideas.

Here’s a selection of my favourite furniture from the Decorex show

An inspirational table and bench by UK joinery company under the watchful eye of Tom Faulkner

A contemporary stool and desk from Pinch designs

Bringing a touch of creativity to mundane storage

Companies displayed a lot of cabinetry with clean, sharp lines,  like this from Michael Northcroft, and also cabinets with pale outsides and wild colours lining drawers… a look which I loved

This was a great shaped tables which appeared again and again around the Decorex stands

And this

What’s happening at London’s Decorex show

I have a busy day at Decorex in London planned for today.  Decorex is the show for architects and interior professionals where we all go to get inspiration, to see the latest interior trends and talk to new and existing suppliers.

The grounds of Chelsea Hospital are transformed with the installation of a large marquee and trade stands. This year Vivienne Westwood, a doyenne of British fashion and design, has decorated the entrance so it is bound to be full of glamour.

2011 Decorex Foyer

I’m looking forward to catching up on all that is good in design and will bring you more of what was good later in the week
