Inspirations from Design Week (Sept15)

Hi everyone. The last two weeks have been manic, firstly there was Design Week in London so I was absorbed in Decorex 2015 and Focus 2015, I had a "significant" birthday which involved organising a dinner for 45 of my closest friends and family. Then on Monday I came down with a bout of 'flu.  All in all, pretty busy two weeks but no excuse really as I should be able to squeeze in an hour to write a blog post, you are probably thinking!  Anyway, here's a visual feast for you from Design Week to stimulate your creative juices!!

First up, Focus 2015 at the Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour.  It's twice a year and an intense week of visiting the showrooms and chatting about any new launches or just generally catching up and usually over a drink and nibbles (better not to drive!). I also attended a talk by the wonderful India Hicks who took us through a visual feast of slides from her new book Island Style  I am always drawn to the floral displays as they are spectacular. My friend Jayne Copperwaite Flowers .  Here are some of them

The following day, my friend and I headed for Decorex 2015 which was being held in the grounds of Syon Park again this year. For those of you who don't know what it is, Decorex is internationally renowned for being THE event to discover the very best and most coveted products from a collection of 400 hand-selected exhibitors. Here are some of my favourite photos that I took on the day. A veritable optical feast.  Enjoy and be inspired!!

Phew, a lot of photos but I hope you enjoyed them.

I'd also love to get some feedback from you as to what topics you'd like me to cover in my blog so do get in touch.
