In terms of design I saw a lot of "rust" treatment for the exteriorson commercial and residential properties. Intentionally done, I might add and some of it done really well. I was taken with two examples particularly (see below pics), the two door tavern and shelter pizza (from the guys behind Rosarito fish shack). Both executed very differently but very striking industrial style. I was quite taken with the vintage Americana vibe at shelter pizza.

The next couple of weeks are crammed with trade shows and fairs. September has such a back to school feel for interior designers and always a fun month with new products, fabrics, colours being launched and lots of drinks receptions! It’s worth keeping an eye on pinterest and various blogs to see the emerging trends. What will you be visiting?

We are just back from the most gorgeous weekend away in honour of our tenth wedding anniversary (and our first night without our little boy). We treated ourselves and stayed at the glorious Coworth Park hotel in Ascot. And boy were we completely cosseted. From the moment of arrival to the bottles of complimentary water left in our car for the journey home, we had an amazing stay.

Whilst the interiors world seems occupied with emerald green at the moment (I might add I LOVE almost all greens), I’ve found myself being drawn to strong contrasts that seem to include yellow. Marketing folks and those who have studied colour psychology will tell you that yellow is more likely to capture your attention than any other colour, hence why it is used in advertising and for warning signs – not just traffic signs but also in nature.
