We have some very exciting news coming up next month. Our shutters will be making an appearance as part of the first Breast Cancer Research: Holiday House London event this November!
And we’re back once again with another set of our top ten Instagram accounts that you should all have on your following list as your daily digest of interior design inspiration. Every month we find our current favourites from the world of all things home design whether that’s a crew of architects, interior designers, bloggers or even mad scientist tap designers. If it tickles our intrigue, we want you to know about it.
With winter finally upon us, it’s the sad time once again where we have to say goodbye to the sunshine and hello to the scarf, gloves and the odd beanie hat. Along with that there’s the joy of getting your home all comfy and ready for the festive season. And with this happy time of year just around the corner, there are a host of interior design bloggers who are at the ready with their tips and tricks of the trade to help you have your home all cosy and comfortable while staying on trend this winter.
And here it is, the London Design Festival 2017 is here and not holding anything back. All that we promised in the last blog post is officially open and the budding designers and the simply curious have flocked out in their masses to take in all they can. Though, with that being said, there isn’t much time to go hopping around to see everything, sadly. But we had the pleasure of wondering around two of the most highly anticipated events of the week. Decorex International 2017 in Syon Park and the Focus 17 exhibits in Chelsea Harbour.
Once again the London Design Festival is back and looking as spectacular as ever with its setlist of exhibitions spread throughout London. The plethora of exhibitions is split between nine districts that are all over the city and celebrate the history of design within each district from the museums to the educational houses that have stood for just as long, if not longer. All exhibitions look as diverse and appealing as the festivities have always been known for. As it's about to start, now is the time to get excited. Here are six of events that we are most looking forward to seeing.
Like clockwork, we’re back with another set of ten Instagram accounts you have to be following for all your interior design inspiration needs. We go through the entirety of Instagram to find the biggest, brightest and best accounts to see. Whether they are constructed with loving care by property developers or show off an orchestra of colour at the hands of a much-loved blogger.
With the weather constantly looking less and less grey than we were starting to get a bit too used to, it’s time to make those changes around our home to work alongside the better weather. Here are five of our favourite interior design trends that should be making appearances this summer in your home.
Let’s face it, August has so far been a very wet month and actually looks like it’s set to get far far worse. But fear not, London has never faltered due to a little spot of rain. Here are 8 fun activities to get involved with this month if you do find yourself scowling in the rain.
1. Go to a gallery, any gallery.

You are probably aware that shutters have proven themselves to be a great solution for solving space issues at home. In addition to them, there’s a wide variety of options available today. While we’ve been at several of the best interior design festivals this year, we’ve seen heaps of incredible ideas being put on display throughout the festival and we thought we’d let you know about five of our favourites.
Pool Table or Dining Table?
Recommended to me by a friend and I would highly recommend Plantation Shutters to anyone else who is looking to get shutters installed. Super helpful service from the whole team at Plantation Shutters. From initially measuring up while I was abroad with work, to adjusting my order when I had changed my mind and the top-quality installation. Most importantly, the customer service and transparency has been great. I placed this order on 4th Feb (just as COVID-19 was spreading to Europe). The team were in regular contact throughout and still delivered on time - even a global pandemic could not derail them! Impressive stuff! Thanks again!!
