I had an appointment in London, last week. I could only get away for a single day, went there and back missing the chance to go and explore as I would have loved – I so rarely get down.

However, I did pass through the beautiful Russell Square tube station on my way, and was reminded of its Art Deco splendour. Colours and patterns I adore so much, and often return to in my jewellery designs – then I noticed it’s the exact palette I have chosen for my new kitchen, with Farrow and Ball’s modern emulsion in ‘arsenic’.




As I hung around taking snaps of the amazing tiles, all the commuters left, leaving me alone down there for a blissful three minutes.

I showed the kids my photos the next day. “It looks look minecraft” said Robert.

In other news, you may have noticed my new blog look. Although I still love my last theme, it wasn’t mobile and tablet friendly so this new design is. I hope you like the change and can still find your way around. Please let me know if there is anything amiss.

I have also changed my gallery look, and am very pleased with its ‘glossy magazine’ feel which makes it a great place to show my photo shoot images. Both are still being tweaked a little to make them mine.

Last but not least is a shiny new logo and branding I have been working on with Bec Gilray of Do You Punctuate … But that’s not quite ready yet …
