We recently saw the new collection from Etamine at Zimmer and Rohde which is an uplifting, delicate collection with wonderful bursts of brightness against pure white backgrounds and delicious combinations of colours. Taste and elegance prevail as always, and although this collection feels perfect for the lovely sunny weather we are currently enjoying, I have no doubt that it will look just as gorgeous, dare I say it, when the autumn comes around again.

There is lots of lovely bold colour coming from Colefax and Fowler‘s collections at the moment which we are absolutely loving! There are four brands under the C&F umbrella and having had a good look through all the new collections recently, it was impossible to pick out just one to show you, so we are showing you a bit from them all!

I have been a fan of Zimmer and Rohde’s design for a long time – I think the look they create is wonderfully classy and stylishly different to other products on the market. We saw the new collection of fabrics and wallpaper last week and I was again impressed with their new creations. We are awaiting samples and I can’t wait to start using them.

As you may know, I am a bit of a DVF groupie (see blog on 31 May 2014) so I am rather thrilled to see her two new collections for the interiors market. The first is a new venture into interiors fabrics and trimmings for Kravet which is, as you would expect, full of vibrant pattern and delicious colour and which has a really joyful feel about it.

The second is a new collection of rugs for the The Rug Company which have a certain animal skin feel to them and can’t help but add glamour and fun. I saw them in The Rug Company’s Kings Road store last week and they are absolutely beautiful. DVF Python rug

The newly launched Bohemian Romance collection from Mulberry is absolutely gorgeous. It is all that you expect from Mulberry who have always been brilliant at plaids, velvets and prints in the elegant country style but they have added additional colour and some fantastic new designs that bring their range right up to date. I am really excited about this collection and can’t wait to get my hands on the samples.

It was always going to be a challenge for Matthew Williamson to create a second collection that is as fabulous as his debut collection for Osborne and Little (see blog post 17 September 2013) but he has only gone and done it. We saw the Samana Collection today and we were honestly blown away by it. It is a collection of wonderfully creative, truly different, gloriously colourful, beautifully detailed fabrics and wallpapers. Do you sense that we liked it?

I remember many years ago seeing an article about Diane Von Furstenberg’s Manhattan home and studio and thinking how utterly wonderful it looked. Full of colour, originality and inspired yet relaxed creativity, I also saw how the live/work space could really work (albeit in on a magnificent scale) which deeply inspired me. So I felt utter joy last weekend, whilst taking a swift but glorious break in New York to round the corner and see this amazing building and I unashamedly stopped and stared. I haven’t been inside but thankfully Architectural Digest have so when I returned home I looked up the article and drooled. Here are the beautiful pictures (by photographer François Halard) and the full article can be seen on the Archtiectural Digest website.  I have pledged to go back to New York regularly so I might be knocking on your door Diane – sorry in advance.

Mandarin Stone are well known for their beautiful natural stone products and we are delighted to have a fantastic showroom in Cambridge manned (womaned) by a very helpful and well informed team, but what I hadn’t realised is that they also have the most beautiful selection of decorative tiles.  The designs are delightful and are coupled with the most wonderful colours and textures and I highly recommend a visit to the showroom to see them as beautiful as these pictures are, they are much better in the flesh.

It is a year since our book ‘Secrets of a Stylish Home’ was published and we are delighted that the sales of the books have been better than we ever expected. It was incredibly exciting to see our work and words in print, not least because the team at Merrell Publishers did such a great job with their beautiful design and layout. There is a germ of an idea forming for another book which we hope to start work on early next year but until then, thank you to all who have purchased the book and have let us know that you like it. To the rest of you, it is still available to buy!
