A lot of people ask me which photo books I think are the best for when it comes to showcasing your favourite pics or for putting together a portfolio. I always say it’s BLURB all the way.
I’m so excited to report to you that I won the Best Stylist/Interior Designer Blog at the inaugural Amara Interior Blog awards last night!
You could be mistaken for thinking this is Scotland, but no, it’s Glenorchy in the South Island of New Zealand!
Behomm is the first worldwide home exchange website for designers and visual artists only. Launched in 2013 by two graphic designers from Barcelona it has quickly established itself as the accommodation site of choice for creative types across the globe -it already had 1000 homes..and counting!
Last month at the London Design Festival, 2014 was by far one of the best yet. I felt there was a real energy about the event and an excitement around all of the new products, that I haven’t felt for a while. I was really impressed by some of the graduate exhibits at LDF and saw so many items that I felt were really original and inventive.
Out of the masses of amazing stuff I came across I have made an edit of what I think are my favourite items and collections from the festival, below. I hope you agree!

Hands down the best for me. SO beautiful, elegant and cool, all in one. Basically, the bird is illuminated through contact with the perch and this lets the bird balance and swing without any cables whilst maintaining luminance.
The bird has been precisely counterbalanced to sit in a resting position on its perch unless activated into gentle motion by wind or touch.
