Here at tuiss we strive to give you the latest fashions and help you with your home design dilemmas and decisions.
We know that sometimes when you’re planning your next project it can be difficult to achieve the look you want because there’s just too much to choose from. You end up with piles of magazine clipping and moodboards, and don’t know where to start the fine-tuning.
That’s where Houzz comes in. Continue reading

New collections are pinging into our inbox from designer after designer, and sometimes we just don’t know how we’re possibly going to incorporate them into our homes. How do we know which are going to stick around? And which are just a passing phase? Which shades and patterns are actually going to be big next season?
Exhibitions and shows are the best place to find answers to these questions, inspiration and a good deal more. Plus they’re so much fun! (We do love collecting the freebies.)
And with the next batch of Home Improvement and Interior Design shows just around the corner, we’ve chosen 5 you cannot afford to miss from all over the UK. Continue reading
When Harper Lee announced she would be releasing a sequel to literary classic ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’, the world went crazy, snapping up copies of the original, with some bookstores reporting increases of over 1000% overnight!

In a recent article, it was reported that the Duchess of Cambridge was “green with envy” when she visited Frederik VIII’s Palace during a visit in 2011, and later took interior design tips from Princess Mary for their own home- at Kensington Palace.
Frederik VIII’s Palace is home to some of the most impressive wall murals and artworks, since it’s renovation in 2010, completed by contemporary Danish artists, including Olafur Eliasson.
Murals are a great way to add substance to a room and often make great conversation starters for guests. Continue reading
Christmas is certainly the most wonderful time of the year and some of the stunning decor ideas we’ve seen have definitely proved this to us.
But what is the best way to make your home feel nice and Christmassy for the holiday season? These are our home essentials at Christmas…
No home is complete at Christmas without a tree!
Even the smallest home can benefit from adding one of the classic Christmas touches – available in a range of sizes, materials and styles there really is the perfect tree for every home.
Another classic touch for the home at Christmas, wreaths are a great way to welcome people into your house and add a subtle decoration to the outside of your home.
We simply adore the traditional holly wreath but there are plenty of other alternatives – such as sparkly tinsel, ringing bells and bright, colourful bauble wreaths out there too.
You don’t need to cover the outside of your house in lights to create a bright and beautiful display this Christmas.
Even just a subtle addition of lights in your front window can help make all the difference and really show your neighbours that you’ve fully embraced the Christmas spirit.
Don’t let the food do all the talking at your Christmas dinner, add a sparkling and festive centre-piece to your table to really get your guests in that Christmas mood.
With the dark night’s setting in and the temperature beginning to drop, we’ve been looking for some heating solutions to keep our houses feeling warm and toasty this winter.
We just happened to stumble across Bisque and their huge range of fully customisable radiators and it’s safe to say that we warmed to them straight away!
They aren’t just highly practical and stylish to boot, they’re also available in a selection of colours and finishes, allowing you to create the perfect finishing touch in your room.
Their classic designs can be made in a plethora of bright and brilliant colours, adding a playful element into your home or blending in seamlessly with your decor.
When it comes to towel rails, they have some of the most innovative and contemporary designs available for both your kitchen and your bathroom.
Not only will these chic and stylish radiators keep your room feeling warm, they also add a modern edge to your room and could even be mistaken for wall decorations!
Fully customisable to suit your needs, you can even preview the product before you buy to make sure that you make the perfect choice for your home.

Creating a stylish, industrial look in your home has been made even easier with the release of the ELECTRICITY range of light switches and dimmers from Buster + Punch.
We simply adore the attention to detail that has gone into these creations along with the surprisingly large choice of colour combinations so you can find the perfect one to finish off the look in your room.
The white and brass designs are a particular favourite of ours as we love the contrasting colours and think it really hits the contemporary style on the head, as does the more striking combination of smoked bronze and brass, shown below.
Whether it’s a standard light switch or a dimmer switch that you’re after, we think these gorgeous creations would work perfectly alongside our blinds in a more contemporary environment, like these simple yet stylish Essentials Gloss White venetian blinds…
And we even think that, with the right decor, even our Shantung Mulberry curtains could be a great companion for these sleek, stylish switches…
