Balineum 'S' Series

Balineum is well know for its beautiful bathroom washstands and high end bathroom accessories from towels and linens to towel stands and lighting but unbeknown to me it has also had a very successful traditional tile business in Italy for the past 20 years. This year they have bought this huge range of tiles to the UK and I was very excited when they asked me to do a feature on them on my blog.

It was only a few months ago that I was taking my parents in to the Fromental showroom in Chelsea Harbour to show them the stunning hand painted wallpapers that were on display. Little did I know at the time that some of the work could have been that of the then head designer, Diane Hill. She has since left the company to set up on her own and has literally launched her website this week.

Rapture & Wright

Rapture & Wright

Last Friday, I set off for a one day screen printing workshop at Rapture & Wright. It was a beautiful, sunny winters day and as I drove into the Cotswold I was put instantly into a calm and enlightened mood. I wished I could up sticks and move from Surrey to live in the picturesque Cotswold countryside, but alas I was here for one day only and I had a mission on hand. To learn the art of screen printing!

There is something about these cushions made by Rifat Ozbek which set them aside from the rest. Something other than their price tag which can reach as high as £900 a cushion! The quality together with the matching and contrasting designs make these cushions stand out. The stunning ikat and beautiful use of colour make me want to buy a whole truck load and distribute them around my house with flourish!
