  • How to look chic with Children’s Art!

    You are standing at the school gates, waiting to collect your child and out they run with a happy little face and clutching an artistic masterpiece. Let’s not beat around the bush here, sometimes this piece of work can be awful. I mean isn’t “junk modelling” just your recycling returned to you covered in Sellotape?! But amid the Rembrandt misses can be some very beautiful Picasso hits. They mean the world to your child and to you and they should be celebrated.  It can be the most meaningful art that ever enters your house.

    Falling Hard for Art

    I see so many beautiful things in the homes of my friends and clients (I am, quite simply, surrounded by good design), but there is one particular accent to great design that consistently turns my head.
