Wall Murals


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

A Stylish Combination – Roman Blinds and Roller Blinds

This may seem like an odd combination but it can work wonders if you’re using your roman blind outside the window recess.

Decorative Touch


The panelled finishes of our roman blinds can make a beautiful decoration at your window, especially if you’ve chosen a bright and beautiful pattern or design, and sometimes that’s exactly how people want to use them.

Rather than compromise the light control and protection at your window, you can use a roller blind inside the recess to make sure the window stays covered when you need it to.

Double the Protection


If you’d rather have a view during the day but full protection at night, you can always use a voile or magic screen roller blind (you can compare the two here) to ensure that you still have plenty of natural light in your home during the daylight hours.

If you have a roman blind fitted above your window, outside the recess, you can then drop that down in the evenings to cover your window fully and make sure no one can see in.

Beautiful Blending


If your room features different shades and hues, you can use this stylish combination to further accentuate the colour scheme in your room.

Go for a neutral or solid colour to keep in with the accents in your room and then accessorise with a bright and bold pattern or design to add a zing of personality to your home!

Keep Your Home Warm This Winter – Radiators

Believe it or not, this isn’t a stating the glaring obvious post – everyone knows that radiators will keep your home warm!

However, we’ve been looking for some handy hints about how to utilise your radiators to their full potential and keep your home as warm as possible this winter.

Clear the Way


If you have any furniture sitting in the way of your radiators, it can hinder the progress of the heat.

Of course if your sofa sits in front of you radiator, you may not want to go to the trouble of completely rearranging your room, but if you have a few tables or an armchair in the way, you might want to nudge them over to one side to clear a path for the heat.



Lining the wall behind your radiator with tinfoil is an excellent way to reflect the heat back into your room – this works especially well with radiators that are on the outside wall of your home as it stops the heat escaping through the brickwork.

While you can purchase specially made foil to do this with, standard tinfoil that you can find in your kitchen works just as well and is also a much more affordable alternative.



A perfect solution for home with high ceilings, placing a shelf above your radiator is a great way to stop the heat from rising too far and losing the benefits in your room.

Not only will it help to keep your home warmer, it will also give you an extra storage area where you can arrange your ornaments or create a themed display that will fit in with your decor beautifully.
