5 Rules For Keeping Your Fabrics Fur Friendly

5 Rules For Keeping Your Fabrics Fur Friendly

I’m going to make an assumption now, based on an entirely narcissistic self evaluation. You’d pretty much do anything for your pets, right? I would. I recently considered genuinely ending things with my partner when he revealed he had a mild canine allergy (we’ve since settled on a hypoallergenic breed and the relationship lives to fight another day). You might never have considered yourself to be the type of person to entirely redesign your life to accommodate these furry creatures that seem to have burrowed their way into your heart.

Tackling Tricky or Tiny Hallways

Photography credit to Distinctify The green eyed interior monster seems to have made its return. Months ago I found myself seething at the sight of someone’s beautiful bathroom complete with a roll-top tub, last year I became overcome with jealousy at the mere mention of kitchen renovations.

Are we letting trends dictate our lives?

Are we letting trends dictate our lives?

Graham & Brown released their colour of the year for 2019 this week. It’s teal, if you wanted to know. More specifically it is a stunning shade of blue named Tiru that they have pulled from the patterning of their wallpaper of the year for 2019 and it’s highly likely to be seen just about everywhere in the next year. But should you be paying any attention to this? Should you be listening to these trends? Who exactly is dictating the next big thing in interior design and why does this suddenly make these trends explode?
