Hi guys. Whilst I’m always out and about gaining inspiration along the way from some of my favourite supplier showrooms and seeing inside some fabulous homes I take a lot of my inspiration from websites as most of us do. So I thought I would share with you my top 6 favourite blog sites, these are sites that I read on a weekly basis for inspiration, fun updates and to see what trends are happening around the world.

Genevieve is my favourite US designer. Her style is eclectic mixing old with new. She has a real talent for combining contrasting metals, colours and finishes to deliver a wonderfully layered interior. Her blog reflects her style she talks about her own home renovation to her favourite tunes. I also follow her on Facebook.

Graphic Designer and photo Stylist Radostina certainly knows how to draw you in with elegant images that make me want to paint my apartment white every time I read her posts. She writes about other designers interiors, interiors from all over the world, and presents them with beautiful images, often only writing a few sentences and letting the images do most of the talking.
