London Design Festival



what's new!

September is a fantastic month to be in London, with the London Design Festival starting everything off this weekend. My little contribution to the event is a wallpaper and fabric feature I produced for You Magazine, showcasing lots of fabulous new designs for Autumn Winter 14.
London will be buzzing with creativity over the next few days, so take a look at the links below for information on all the events taking place and see as much as you can!

PS-A huge thank you to Amara for nominating me in their interior design blog awards. If you'd like to vote for Trend Daily as well as some other pretty fantastic blogs, that would be brilliant-just click here: Amara interior blog awards

homebarn at home...a sneak peek

What better way to start a new week than with
 some glorious vintage living. 
Today's post features a little sneak peek inside
 the fabulous home of Sarah Wilkie from HomeBarn. 

Situated in Little Marlow, Bucks, 
with a great country pub just down the road, 
HomeBarn is the perfect day out from London. 
Take a trip-you won't be disappointed.

Take a look at their first issuu magazine
 I produced for them here and visit their website here.

bucks open studios...commercial square studios

Evie and I visited bucks open studios again today
 and as tomorrow is the final day, 
I've put all my photos together on one post.
 It's a long one and apologies in advance
 to the artists for not always getting the correct exposure,
 so some colours are a little off the original. 
More photography practice required!!

behind the scenes...



my on-line diary on instagram...

Just a few Instagram snaps 
of what I've been up to recently.
The every-day, the ordinary, at home,
out and about.
My on-line diary, as always, in pictures!

artists highlight....



bucks open studios... commercial square studios

Every year, thousands of artists nationwide open up their studios to the public during 'Open Studios' season. My local event is Bucks Open Studios in High Wycombe, once infamous in the furniture making industry, home to Robin Day's early years at art college (now the Buckinghamshire New University and still renowned in the world of furniture and design) and still home to an incredible variety of artists, from disciplines as wide and varied as ceramics, jewellery, embroidery, painting, glass-blowing and of course furniture making, to name just a few. 

Bucks Open Studios will run until the 22nd June and covers villages and towns throughout the county. I'm thrilled to have finally tracked down a few of my shots from last year's visit. Some pictures,as yet, not credited until I visit the studios this weekend, when I can hopefully fill in the missing gaps. 

The first 7 shots are of Elizabeth Callinicos' studio space, which I instantly fell in love with and spent a lot of time in. With an MA from The Royal College of Art, Elizabeth took part in an exhibition, 3Up, a season of 3 person shows in 3 parts for The Crafts Council in 2000. 

Elizabeth's work was showcased in the second part of the series entitled Tectonic and billed as 'three relationships between craft and architecture.' Exhibiting alongside Elizabeth were Shin and Tomoko Azumi and Thomas Heatherwick Studio (whose current and arguably most notable work comes in the form of the 2012 Olympic flame and the proposed London Garden Bridge).

I will post further shots of other exhibitors I visited last year, as well as this year's event which I will attend over the next few days. Meanwhile, take a look at the links below for further information and events in your local area. Most of all, if you have even the slightest interest in design, then take time out to visit just a few artists and designers-many of whom open up their homes to proudly display their crafts. We need to support and champion British design and aspiring talent...enjoy!
