Don't you just love all the adjectives estate agents and designers use to describe small gardens? Petite. Minikin. Bantam. And then we upgrade from foreign words to compound adjectives like space-savvy or better – clichés like less is more. But let's face it – less is less and for whatever reason you have a small garden space, you just have to embrace it. As seasoned London landscaping experts say, learn to love it. Because…

DIY Your Own Wall Art (Instead of Spending a Small Fortune)

We haven't lived in our apartment long and therefore I am still in the process of decorating it (does that process ever end, though?). It's an industrial loft with very high ceilings and all white walls so for me, a lover of art, color, and texture, getting the place…

We Answer Wednesday - Monochromatic Decorating At Home

"I don't love bright colour.  I know lots of people love colour in their space but it's just not for me.  How can I make my space look great without big, bold colour? I don't want it to look boring."

It Can't Just Be Smart...It Needs To Be Vogue

It can't just be a "smart" watch.

Because Apple would effectively eliminate and alienate every style-and-label-conscious consumer in its target audience.

Common objection to an iDevice gracing my wrist - Why do I need a smart watch?  I'd rather sport a Chanel J-12 or my Cartier Balloon Bleu.  I have an iPhone...with a super blingy…
