With a couple of small children it's not as easy as it used to be to get away and live it up in a posh hotel for a weekend... So, I was delighted to purchase a copy of the latest Design Hotels book which is packed with lavish glossy photos and pure indulgence which is ALMOST as good as the real thing.
Yeah right, who am I kidding? It doesn't come close, but it's a great way to check out the latest interiors of 220 stunning hotels, including 30 properties that are new to the latest edition.
The new edition of The Design Hotels™ Book provides insight into trends and developments in hospitality design. With its images of striking architecture and interior design, this opulent coffee table book brings the experience of staying in a Design Hotels™ property to life. Just as well eh!
Swedish wallpaper manufacturer, Sandberg have launched an ethical new range of wallpapers which have been recreated from initial pen-and-paper sketches and then screenprinted at the company's factory in Sweden, using water-based, non-toxic inks. What do you think?

Have you been wooed by Cath Kidston mania? I love the twee prints and coordinating floral patterns and if blended well can look stunning in any setting. Bowled over by enquiries for our hand sewn patchwork chair we decided to have some small sofa frames built which provided the perfect platform for this blue velvet loveseat featuring contrasting heavy weight cotton fabrics from the Cath Kidston collection. It was only finished today so this really is one HOT, love seat... It's a bit like Marmite - I think you either love it or hate it. What do you think?
