Designed by Glenn Gissler Design, this New York penthouse apartment luxuriously portrays style, glamour and sophistication. The palette primarily consists of white, black and grey and this simple yet attractive interior works beautifully and in harmony. The choice of materials such as the polished chrome, marble and wood compliment the colour palette used in the design of this elegant apartment.

The National Gallery: {art and interiors}

Founded in 1824, The National Gallery is an art museum in Trafalgar Square, London, which boasts an impressive collection of over 2,300 paintings from works by Leonardo da Vinci, Van Gogh, Cezanne, Botticelli and many more. It is among the most visited art museums in the world and I can see why.

Art is a valuable essential in interior design. Art doesn't just have to apply to walls or be portrayed in a framed piece. Implementing art into the home through home accessories such as those seen in the vignette above is an exciting and excellent way of embracing a cultured lifestyle.

Van Gogh's Sunflowers collection add a beautiful and refreshing spring look to your home. Similar looks can be achieved by implemeting other gifts inspired by paintings available at the National Gallery.

Using accessories inspired by art is a fabulous way to bring art into your home and it's timeless. 

The National Gallery Company Limited (NGC) is the trading arm of the National Gallery. Its primary purpose is to generate income for the National Gallery and the National Gallery Trust through a number of commercial operations. NGC runs the Gallery shops, located within the gallery and online. 

There are three destination shops within the National Gallery open daily from 10am to 5.45pm (Fridays until 8.45pm) and an online shop at:
With a broad range of products inspired by the Gallery’s permanent collection and to accompany the changing exhibition programme, items range from postcards and pocket money items through to art books, designer jewellery and vintage champagne.

London Design Week: {lighting design}

During London Design Week 2016 I attended the wonderful John Cullen Lighting showroom launch. It was a fabulous evening, abundant with journalists and those in the property and design industry. There were many delightful pieces on show from John Cullen Lighting, Cox London and Harlequin London. The showroom was beautifully transformed, with new collections from each of the lighting companies present.

Cox London beautifully transformed the kitchen area with their stunning Ferro Vitro Chandelier.

A highlight of the evening was the display of the magnificent Arlequin chandelier by Harlequin London who was also showcasing their new Saint-Louis collection for the first time in the UK.

The Lighting Pod was lit up with the Lobmeyr Ripple and ensured a magical experience throughout the evening.

John Cullen Lighting had their latest products on display such as the Guida and Riena, which is ideal for use in both the house and garden.

Dame Zaha Hadid

It is with great sadness that I write this post. I have just come to learn of the passing away of one of the most inspiring architects of the late 20th century. Dame Zaha Hadid who was born in Baghdad on 31 October 1950, was at the forefront of contemporary architecture in the late 20th century. Throughout the world, Zaha Hadid has left her mark through many impressive designs and some of the most awe-inspiring buildings ever created.

Zaha Hadid was the first woman to receive the Design of the Year Award and the RIBA Gold Medal. She has been an inspiration for women worldwide in many professions, primarily interior design and architecture. I hope many more women will aspire to walk in her footsteps.
