International Women’s Day is celebrated throughout the world and has done since the early 1900’s. It acts a collective celebration of their many wide achievements across all platforms within society. From the scientific to the political and from the social to the creative. The day also acts a landmark in its progress. And while the previous year has provided many extraordinary achievements, it also illustrates a stark reminder of the press for progress that is yet to be made in the pursuit of gender equality.
February has come and gone with some serious speed. So, to greet March in with hopefully warmer arms that February had for us is the return of this month’s top 10 inspirational Instagram accounts that you must be following for all your interior design needs.
We’ve worked in some of the most incredible homes, restaurants, bars and office spaces throughout London over the years. The interior designers and architects that have flooded through, leaving excellence in their wake have never failed to surprise us in their innovative work. For this blog post, we’re going to look at five design features that we’ve seen in their work and the work of others, that makes these spaces perfect for entertaining guests. Because if you have it, flaunt it.

Yet again it’s been an incredible few days for the 2018 Surface Design Show and we went along on Wednesday to enjoy all the marvellous variety that was on offer.
A fantastical mixture of manufacturers, architects, designers and lighting designers funnelled into the Business Design Centre in Islington to show off the biggest, best, brightest, smoothest and most innovative products that have been a staple necessity of a designer’s catalogue for many years as well as some additions that are yet to have their moment in the limelight.
2018 is here and with that we’re kicking off our run of favourite Instagram accounts of the month! Throughout the year we will be hunting around the biggest and brightest stars on Instagram when it comes to interior design, picking out our favourites that we think should be on everybody’s list for inspiration. And we’ll be posting them on our blog and all across social media every month so be sure to get involved.
With 2018 finally here, we’re in that time whereby the change is on the minds of the many. Whether that be the introduction of a new wardrobe, lifestyle choice or indeed interior design choice. Naturally, at Plantation Shutters, we’re always on the lookout for the interior design side of things. And with that, we’ve scoured through the musings of the biggest and best names in the industry, from designers to journalists for what they believe will be the next big thing this year.
Every month of 2017, we’ve been throwing the best that the world of Instagram has to offer up for inspiration your way. Everyone from architects to bloggers have shown us what it truly means to be the biggest and the best with their stunning feed catered to their brand and personality for us all.
Plantation Shutters fitted and installed two sets of shutters in my living room. We're very happy with the finished result and the installation process.
