Every time I look at photos from our Wilderness project, I find yet another favorite element. This tufted ottoman is so classic and refined! Which do you prefer, upholstered or wood coffee tables? .

FINAL EXERCISE DURING OUR DECO WORKSHOP SEMINAR.
Project by Stavroula X. inspired by the wallpaper 'Curio Strand' of @cole_and_son_wallpapers. Stavroula created a POP-LUXE combination where Retro forms and luxury elements reconcile!
A big thank you to @cole_and_son_wallpapers for providing us with the samples for the purposes of this project!
Here’s phase two of my wife’s dresser. I don’t think I’ll ever buy another set of drawer slides. These Hard Maple rails slide in and out like grass through a goose. The Black Limba slab on top is dead flat thanks to the Lucas mill. I can’t wait to see it with finish applied.. Do you guys have any suggestions for drawer pulls?? lmk gramfam..

Rain rain dont go away! 🌨
Sorry I know rain and moving furniture don't go together very well but we definitely need it, so grab a cuppa, a biscuit and take a break! ☕🍪😉
It's a little harder to get moving when it's cold and rainy.
Flicking through all those gorgeous interiors on Pinterest. I found this beauty. .
Who has had to style large spaces and what did you find that worked and didn't work?
Anyone else notice that ceiling fans are looking a lot better in recent years? It's no wonder, they're often a component of the room which can add an element of contrast but generally preferred to be an understatement (particularly in small bedrooms). Did you know that ceiling fans are perfect in tall rooms with fireplaces as they help to circulate the warm air which rises? The temperature near the ceiling is greater than at floor level and fans help to move this air trapped near the ceiling. 📷 @beaconlighting

Spatial reaction for your wellbeing ⠀
As mentioned in my first post, your reaction to a space consists of a range of elements that compose your experience.⠀
Ensuring that you have a positive relationship with the spaces you spend your time in is key. A knock on effect of this is feeling comfortable and safe in your environment. This is SO important for your mental wellbeing.⠀
Key elements that can help to increase the love for your spaces are: ⠀
* Colour ⠀
* Natural light ⠀
* Plants ⠀
* Comfortable seating ⠀
* Functionality ⠀
* Cleanliness ⠀
Nailing these things not only help to create a great interior, but also acts as a checklist for renovations. ⠀

Thank you @sophiainrome for reminding me about the “fireplace” I installed.
As is so often the case in old properties that have been “rent-ified”, our chimney breast was just an awkward expanse of wall that with an air vent in it. Hanging a picture on it looked really weird and reminded me of student houses. I like pictures to be anchored by a piece of furniture or a feature.
I sourced the simple pine surround on eBay for £39.99.
To fix it snugly against the wall I sawed off two pieces where the mantelpiece needed to run behind it, and I attached the whole thing to the chimney breast with two discreet corner plates so as to not ruin the wall when I would remove it at the end of tenancy. It made SO much difference to that little sitting room! It added character where, apart from the window, it had been completely stripped!
It is just a sneak peek of this photo session we did at Hillsborough. I was in Berkeley, so I woke up that day 4 am so I could arrive just for the sunrise and take advance of the different light we get in the morning... Perfect for the location they live in and the story of them. We started at 6:30 am and laughed, ate, I took a lot of coffee with cream (thank you guys), we talked about Africa, she showed me the beautiful collection of her dresses (I will save for future photos), and I was captivated the most for the connection in between... .
