  • Golden Day

    Posted on February 1, 2018

    It’s Golden Day today, a much anticipated yearly event when the children can choose which creative activities they’d like to enjoy, for a more relaxed, fun school day.

    As I dropped an excited Bunty off this morning she said “You can have Golden Day today too, mummy”. After initially dismissing the idea, I thought again and decided I can have a Golden Day! I still have the same to-do list but I’ve approached my schedule with a Golden Day attitude, and it’s going well.

    I’ve decided to treat myself to a golden bunny today too, to mark the occasion. He shall sit on a window ledge until I’ve saved enough for him to multi-task as a useful door stop.

    I’ve just returned from the Maison & Objet trade salon in Paris where it’s always interesting to see various key trends (urgh, that word!) highlighted and predicted for the year to come. This year it’s all about the exhibitionist approach to home decoration.

    According to Vincent Grégoire, Director of M&O’s partner trend-forecasting agency Nelly Rodi, the modern day consumer seeks refuge from reality through ‘story-living’ and ‘showroomisation’.

    Enabled by the internet, the consumer can learn, buy, and curate. And then show off. The consumer is now the art-director, the ‘prosumer’. The new design professionals, the new opinion-leaders.

  • A New Year

    Posted on January 12, 2018

    … and a re-issue of Flea Market Style is in the pipeline. How exciting! I really enjoyed visiting each and every one of the special homes featured in my books and they continue to inspire me. My home’s in there too and here’s a corner, adorned with my own market finds, photographed by my dear friend and flea partner-in-crime, Debi Treloar.
