Interior DesignTrend for 2013 ~ African Print influences

Yes African Prints have exploded all over the world. Also known as Ankara in Nigeria, it's been introduced more and more into interior design and now found it's own firm footing.

This bedroom below reeks of African heritage. From the bedspread, pillows, colour of the bed frame to the painted walls, plates and all. Everything is so well coordinated without loosing the functionality of the room.

I will most definitely be blogging more on this as I'm a British-Nigerian and I think Ankara, the African print fabric has taken over the world.

In terms of creating eye-catching focal points in any space, I make fabric lampshades using the Ankara material by hand. The designs and colour combinations are endless.

Here are some below for your viewing pleasure ;-)

Please visit my Ankara Lampshades shop on Etsy. I also share images on my page on. You can also reach me via:

Timeless Furniture ~ The Bathroom Vanity

Gosh I haven't done one of these in like  ..... ages. 

I think this baby-pink beauty is a winner. It's in the style of new Baroque    It's a revival of the old style and the pink colour puts a spin on it. I absolutely love it. The edges of the mirror have  been delicately cut out. 

The handles look like a big buckle. Too cute

The knobs on the dresser

I'm curious as to where you would place this piece? In the bathroom or somewhere else entirely? Would love to read your feedback!

The Cloth Shop ~ a treasure trove of fabrics & trimmings

I've always wanted to visit this cute little shop in London ever since I saw it feature on Kelly Hoppen's Superior Interiors. The name is 'The Cloth Shop' and it is nested along the famous Portobello Road. My wish came true last week when I got the chance to go to venture into the big city. That's just what I did.

You see I live in the country (escaped London a while ago now).
