Five interior design must haves


Wondering what interior design trends you need to take note of? Here’s our run down!

The interior design market is always evolving. There is so much choice that it can be tricky to know where to start and it is easy to feel overwhelmed. As a professional designer who is constantly researching, I come across items and brands that regardless of changing trends and styles, I use for both myself and

also for my discerning and style conscious clients.

Oversized Window Mirrors

I love love love these mirrors.  They provide a statement in any scheme and depending upon the material and colour, they are versatile enough to go in a  any classic, scandi, industrial or shabby interior scheme.  To create a grand statement, place them on the floor behind a console table or either side of a doorway or piece of furniture.

Plant Stands

Wherever possible, I love to use carefully selected architectural plants and greenery in my designs. Whether you choose artificial foliage (and there are some seriously stunning and realistic ones out there) or you prefer the real thing, having pops of those luscious leafy greens makes any interior come alive. 

Plant stands have made a comeback in a big way.  A tried and trusted way of using them is to group them in threes. Try positioning a selection of ferns, palms and grasses of different heights – the impact will be gorgeous! I love these stands from The Contemporary Home for their structured geometric style and these wooden stands with brass planters from Audenza make a real statement.

This Dutch based furniture company sources its products from all around the globe to inspire a range of interiors from the industrial to the vintage. These beautifully crafted pieces range from exquisite sideboards, coffee tables and lighting to beautiful woven textiles and exotic carpets. Take a look at who stock a wide range of Dutchbone, you might just find yourself something a bit special.

Statement Ceilings

Forget your matt white ceilings, this trend is set to gather momentum and I can’t wait to try it out this year.  Try contrasting a paint

colour to that of your walls. Or transform the look of your room by tiling or wallpapering your ceiling (very boutique hotel) to give your space something to really talk about! 

If you want something less drastic, these innovative ceiling rose tiles from might just do the trick.

Drinks Trolleys

I have purchased a couple of these for clients who wanted something fun and a little bit different.  They look great as an alternative to traditional furniture pieces especially when situated in living spaces. 

As many of them are designed with wheels they can be moved around the room according to suit.  I really like this marble and brass one from

the Home Lust Concept Store.
