New beginnings for Stella + the Stars

New beginnings for Stella + the Stars

Make sure you're sitting down for this one as it might be the most random/surreal/mad/unexpected/[insert preferred expletive here] kind of post I have written on this blog. Stella + the Stars is moving to the desert... No, it's not a joke, I swear. Surreal, yes, but also actually happening. We are leaving everything we know in London to settle in a crazy new place with a bunch of people we've never met. New beginnings, I warned you, didn't I?

[Star Tips] How I added pops of colour to revamp a white office space...

I have just completed my first corporate styling project, and used pops of colour, statement pieces and quirky accessories to revamp a PR office in Central London. I thought I'd share these with you as well as the result, as, although it's a big office space, not an actual house or flat, the principles of interior styling are often the same and you might get some inspiration and tips from the project to apply to your own home. So ready for the full tour?

[Star Buys] How to buy original yet affordable artwork with Predella House

I am a tiny bit excited to introduce Predella House - an online art gallery, curating art 'for the culturally curious' that looks 'to break down the traditional barriers of elitist art purchasing' and open the doors into a new dimension of art buying.

[Eye Candy] Photo Diary: BHS Luxe Lounge at London Fashion Weekend

The British high street giant decorated the exclusive lounge this year using pieces from their new Spring collection of home accessories and lighting and we were tasked to review it (while enjoying free bubbles and amuse bouches, and browsing the fashion collections showcased. I know, it's a tough life, innit?). Want to know how the day went?
