( London design festival is here )


As many of you may or may not be aware, London Design Festival is well under way. With so many design events to see, it's hard to know where to start. I am huge fan of both Tent London and Super Brands London.
Tent, located at the Old Truman Brewery, London E1, is most definitely one of my favourite and one I will be attending this weekend (look out for a post about this next week). Now in its sixth year at the Old Truman Brewery, Tent London presents over 200 international exhibitors, showing the very latest in contemporary interior products - furniture, lighting, ceramics, textiles, materials and accessories.
Over 19,000 international trade buyers, high calibre specifiers, opinion forming media and design savvy consumers from 44 different countries attend the four-day event. It is regarded as the most cutting-edge and progressive trade exhibition during the London Design Festival and must attend for those who need to be seen with their finger on the pulse.

Here are a few of my favourite exhibitors to look out for at Tent London...

Super Brands London, co-located with Tent London - a main destination hub during the London Design Festival, the exhibition occupies a 2,500m2 ground floor space of the ex-industrial, now impressive exhibition space - the Old Truman Brewery; bringing together two floors of pure design.

( autumn is coming... with black, white, jade and timber )

TREND SPOT: 
Autumn is just around the corner and I am loving the crisp warmth of black, white, jade green.... and of course, natural timber! 
This beautiful Spanish house is a great source of inspiration with it's charm, character, traditional influences and contemporary comfortable feel. house. It was designed created by the Madrid architectural company Abaton. I adore the balance between the colours and multiple materials used in this home. I'm not normally a big fan of making new joinery look aged (painting effects), but the dining room storage cupboard work perfectly.

( London living - my winning photo )

I'm so excited at the moment! I woke up yesterday thinking it was going to be just a normal Monday. I was in work for 9:00am on the dot and checked my emails as usual. I was extremely excited to see an email from a very popular London blog called  'London Living'. I had entered a photography competition through them about 2 weeks ago. The competition requirements were to upload a personal photo that represents your Summer of London, so I thought, 'why not'. To my shock and 'over' excitement, I WON!
Here is my winning picture below. You will be able to see my photo along with all the runners-up, at the Getty Images Gallery in Stratford, London in the Autumn. I'm so excited to see one of my photographs in a prestigious London gallery :)
To see more photos by me, please check out my instagram profile.
