Competition: Win £400 to spend at Dwell

It can be so hard to get your home looking as you’d like it when you’re working to a budget – sometimes it seems to take forever to work through the shopping list of things you need when decorating a new place. I’ve had to set myself a rule of...
Four DIY-able Kitchen Storage Ideas

Four DIY-able Kitchen Storage Ideas

The insides of my kitchen cupboards are starting to look like a game of Tetris. With every recipe calling for a different type of wok, casserole dish or loaf tin (?) things have started to get out of hand! The time to figure out some wall-based storage is long overdue, but living...
Rustic vs Contemporary

Rustic vs Contemporary

Today I wanted to share a tour of a cool little house that I spotted over on Bjurfors last week. This two-story home is in Malmö, Sweden. What’s great here is how the owners have allowed the rustic elements of the home so much emphasis (namely the enormous wooden beams, the windows and the...

Preview: Four AW14 Interiors Trends

It’s the 1st October, the mornings are suddenly darker and I got absolutely soaked on my way to work this morning. Autumn is definitely here (nooo!), but rather than resisting the season’s changes, I’m trying to embrace them. What the new month does bring is a fresh set of interior trends...

Monochrome Cool

Monochrome Cool

I might be in a minority here, but I’ve always thought that monochrome was a bit stark. I’m not hugely into bright colours either, but just sticking to variations between black and white seems so limiting, not to mention being quite harsh on the eye. If you described this house to me I’d probably hate...
Bedding Down for Winter

Bedding Down for Winter

If you’re reading this from the UK, you’ll very well know that the temperature here has plummeted over the last few days. On Sunday I had to break out my warm coat for the very first time, and now I’ve picked up the first stuffy nose of the season. Winter is truly on its way....
Styling up a Shelfie, at SMUG

Styling up a Shelfie, at SMUG

On Sunday I was lucky enough to be invited along to SMUG’s ‘Shelfie’ blogger breakfast, a collaboration between the shop’s owner, Lizzie, and Tiff Grant-Riley of Curate & Display. After teas, coffees and a custard-stuffed croissant (for me) we were let loose on the shop, picking out our favourite products to style up for our shelves....
Happy birthday to me...

Happy birthday to me…

Today Decorenvy is one year old. A whole year! The time has passed so quickly, I can barely believe it. It seems like a fairly major milestone, so I didn’t want to let the occasion pass without some kind of acknowledgement. When I wrote my first post (don’t judge me on its quality!) in October 2013,...
Let's Go, Indigo

Let’s Go, Indigo

As the rains pick up and the nights grow longer, our interiors are starting to imitate the outdoors. Cue one of AW14’s key colour trends: Indigo. The sultry shade of blue is taking over just about every surface this year, from  accessories and textiles to (for the very brave!) walls and floors. It’s a colour that...
Keeping it Green

Keeping it Green

I had a bit of a eureka moment recently, when looking around our flat and trying to put my finger on what exactly it is still missing. There’s nothing else we need, so why doesn’t it look finished? Plants. In our haste to buy coffee tables, lighting, bedding and art we’d sort of forgotten that...
Teardrop Tableware from Fou de Feu

Teardrop Tableware from Fou de Feu

These are really floating my boat today. This selection of jugs, cups, plates, spoons and boards make up the Rhythm Collection, which was devised by Fou de Feu founder Veerle Van Overloop. Each piece is formed of three rounded corners and a pointed edge, designed to look like teardrops. I particularly love the various sizes of chopping...

For London Design Festival 2014 and as part of the Islington Design District, SMUG’s CAFÉ SMUG kicked off the festivities with their ‘Cocktails and Canapés’ evening on Tuesday. The café will be playing host to design enthusiasts for the duration of the festival, putting on a programme of design-led activities and workshops. Outside of scheduled...
LDF 2014 | The V&A

LDF 2014 | The V&A

The hub of London Design Festival 2014, this year the V&A has more exhibitions on than you can shake a stick at. Nestled in corners and stairwells across all four floors of the building are cool, quirky and thoughtful installations to celebrate all aspects of Design. On Sunday I went for a little snoop around...
AW14 Trend Preview: Winter Pastels

AW14 Trend Preview: Winter Pastels

It’s that time of year again – the AW14 interiors trends are coming out of the woodwork. Spring 2014 saw the introduction of ‘chalky’ pastels, i.e. faded shades of pastel pink, blue, yellow and green. It was nice to see pastels look a little more grown-up, in contrast to the sickly shades that usually crop up...
Space Saver | The Yeh Table

Space Saver | The Yeh Table

Everybody, meet the Yeh Table. Its flat back and gently angled legs allow it to flatten gracefully (yet securely) against the wall to create a non-intrusive surface space. Use it by the front door as a handy drop-point for keys and phones, in the bedroom as a nightstand, or in the living room to display...
