When the show contacted us about the baskets they said they would be used as a great storage idea – but we still don’t know what they will be storing ! We can’t wait to watch today’s episode at 2pm where apparently Peter Andre teams up with interior designer Linda Barker to spring a pleasant surprise on grandfather Ronald Jones from St Helens, Merseyside, designing him a gentlemen’s club in his own lounge… which sounds intriguing?!
However they end up being used there’s no doubt these gorgeous rattan baskets are just a fantastic storage solution full of period charm …
We have some very exciting news to share with you all and we can’t wait to tell you more! Last night, Cassie and I went off to the big city for the House Beautiful Awards Ceremony at the Science Museum. We had been nominated for an award in the ‘Best Lighting Category.’
We were greeted with drinks and canapes and mingled amongst the other guests. It was a star-studded event and we even spotted Alan Titchmarsh talking to Mary Berry.
We were then directed through to the theatre where the awards were going to be given. We eagerly awaited for our category to come up. There were some fantastic winners in some of the other categories. Our particular favourites were Thornback and Peel who won the ‘Best Furniture’ Award with their collaboration with Sofa.com. We also loved the winners of the ‘Best Fabric’ category: Wabi Sabi with their 2013 collection.
We just had to share these gorgeous pictures with you. Etre Creative have been busy again, this time styling a beautiful show home at Montford Place in Sunbury on Thames for Linden Homes.
Here is what Emily from Etre Creative had to say:
Nothing says English country home elegance like Downton Abbey. If, like us, you have been thoroughly enjoying the wonderful period style and design of the Edwardian era in this new season, why not see if you can recreate a little of the look in your own home with our range of period look lighting?
The weather may have given us a gorgeously hot summer for a change, but if you’ve been busy working the likelihood is that you haven’t actually had a chance to visit the glorious seaside towns this country has to offer. As we’ve had some beautiful coastal-inspired fabrics made up for summer we thought we would give you some tips on how to inject a touch of coastal charm and summer into your own home…
Add a touch of French Riviera chic to your furniture for sophisticated summer evenings out on the decking with subtle neutral colours and delicately illustrated fabrics. We particularly love the Ocean Printed Cotton and Sailboat Printed Cotton here at Jim Lawrence that can be made up into different size cushions, and other soft furnishings.
