Home tour: the Charleston designer showhouse

If I were in the vicinity of Charleston I would definitely go to this year's designer showhouse. I have been swooning over the pictures of the house on instagram and the internet. An old Charleston townhouse is totally refurbished and decorated by  designers like Mitchell Hill, The English Room, & more. The Henry Street House at 36 Society St., will be open to the public until April 15. The Revival-style home originates from 1804, but was destroyed in what is known as the “Great Fire … [Read more...]

Chic Party Ware

I'm always in for hosting a party. Whether it is a cocktail party, wine and cheese evening, or Valentine's day, it all starts with deciding on the decorations, tablesetting and party ware. That's why I love the partyware from Harlow and Grey. Disposable plates and cups have never been more glamorous and chic. It's almost hard to believe that they are disposable. Gold accents, art deco style plates, marbelized cake plates and salmon pink hexagons are just a few examples of their super stylish … [Read more...]

Trend: Globe Lamps

A huge home decor trend that I just love, love, love, is the renaissance of the chic globe lamp. The globe lamps were a big hit in the 1960s and 1970s and are taking over stylish interiors rapidly. They are mostly combined with brass or marble to enhance the chic style, yet they are also perfect to pair in a sleek Scandinavian style home decor. It was actually FLOS who re-introduced the globe with their IC Lights series designed by  Michael Anastassiades. Then came Bolia with a table lamp … [Read more...]

Dream Big, Little One

Kids room

One of the best things about kids, is their unlimited fantasy and dreaming. So why not make their dreams come true - is what the designers at Circu furniture must have thought. They create beds, chairs, toys boxes and other furniture for the play room/kids rooms. Think a baby crib shaped like a hot air balloon, an armchair inside a rocket, a TV inside a magical mirror, or a big shell shaped bed for your little mermaid. Circu enables you to create a magical room for your little one that you could … [Read more...]

Interior Trend: Playing Games

Fashion and interior design are constantly inspired by things around us. One very distinctive influence on interior design this year is gaming. We will see furniture and design that is inspired by games, and is translated into playful forms and colours, but also sophisticated, refined and dramatized home decor. Not only furniture but also home accessories will show influences drawn from games, the circus, or gambling. It can be any kind of game: a social game [board games], role games … [Read more...]
