Happy 14th Birthday Google - we love you!

Happy 14th Anniversary GOOGLE. Has it really been that long!

Just wanna say thanks for GOOGLE SITES ~ I built my 'free' website all by myself using this  (Dezine Konnections Interior Design) and it wasn't rocket science :-)

I've gotta get on the GOOGLE CHECKOUT bandwagon though for my eCommerce platform. I've heard so many good things about it. Online shop coming soon - watch this space.

I also use your blogging platform, as you can see this 'blog' is on BLOGGER !!!! So very grateful.

GOOGLE DOCS and CALENDER keep me organised 

I lurrrrrve PICASA. All my images in one place and easily editable. It's easy peasy.

I blab a lot over Gtalk ~ GOOGLE TALK. No dodgy connections. 

Where would I be without my ever life-saving GOOGLE MAPS. Totally lost! No kidding.

GOOGLE CHROME is my gateway into the virtual world wide web.

My emails flow perfectly well with Googlemail. Ooops scratch that, I mean GMAIL.

And lest I forget ~ GOOGLE is the best 'Search Engine' EVER

}My take on Google - It's been wonderful knowing you so far. I've still gotta catch up on G+ (I know), create my own video on Youtube (yeah am behind times) and GOOGLE DOODLES ROCK by the way!~

Object Arrangement ~ Vases

The art of arranging objects isn't really that hard. Make them interesting using various sizes and shapes. This will draw ones eye's to the assortment. Mix the textures and slightly the colours too.

The fireplace in the picture above is the icing on the cake. All the colours tie in beautifully with each other. This Swedish interior is so very cool.

The Ultimate Man Cave! Really!

I guess this is every man's dream. Somewhere to chill out and relax. Invite your buddies around for a game (and a drink or two maybe) or just relax by yourself in front of the screen and watch a good old movie!

I love the setting above, so American! The space has been maximised to include the necessary elements for the ultimate man cave. A bar area to chill and sip drinks at, the cinema corner with the 'dropped' floor and not forgetting the centre of attraction - game table. 

One thing that sticks out about this room is the functionality of the space. First rule of thumb in designing ANY space is always 'function over beauty'! Get the layout right first (always keeping in mind the users of the space) and everything else will follow.

If you need a space like this, a man's hideout in the basement / garage or a shed in the back yard, send an email to You can also visit our website and see the other services we provide.

Colour Trends & Inspiration ~ Autumn 2012

Seems like we are fast approaching Autumn/Fall. For one the weather is getting cooler, London 2012 summer Olympics is finally over and kids are back in school. We will soon be seeing falling leaves, a bit of frost as well as the wonderful variety of natures autumn colours. 

The Autumn 2012 colour trends are browns, greys, orange, greens with the added bonus of pinks and blues. Not forgetting the other usual suspects such as yellows, beiges and blacks.

According to Pantone 
}Color is the catalyst that can spark the sale, define the space and create the magic and the mood.~ 

In interior design speak,colour truly is the element needed to clinch that sale. It is

The Glass & Art Deco Effect

One thing that never seizes to amaze me is Art Deco and it's smooth and clear lines, geometrical designs and glass. Art Deco has been around since the 1920s (started off in Paris) and I believe isn't ready to be forgotten yet. There's still a lot of Art Deco antiques and as well as reproductions to be had.

This mirrored Art Deco set (vanity table, mirror & stool) is part of House of Fraser's 'Black Orchid' line. All I can say is TOTAL GLAMOUR!!! The black and clear glass combination works well ~ simple but yet understated.

Back to school ~ It's all about the kids

Am sure a lot of you, like me, would be like 'phewy' the summer is finally over (for the kids) and they are back to school this week. This is also the time to revamp your kids bedrooms ready for the New school year.

I decided to write this post around 'Back to School'. As all parents know,
