Introducing Wendy Morrison rugs

First day in the office after the bank holiday and it’s been manic. No, I haven’t taken any days off in case you’re wondering. I wish I could!! I’ve been working non-stop clocking in 70 hours a week. But it doesn’t feel like work at all! Anyways. I’ve been in London all week meeting great creative and chic mamas for our magazine features. I can’t wait to share with you what we’re working on. I have new contributors joining the team, new features and inspirational interviews which I recorded.

Today, I’ve been doing a small shoot with one of Wendy Morrison rugs and thought I introduce her rugs here as well. Sometimes it’s hard to find what you’re looking for; what your vision is.  I was looking for something geometric and vibrant. I asked Wendy if she could send me a sample and she sent me a whole rug!! It was great seeing it in real life. It’s so stunning!! The colours are strong and I love the design. This is definitely one of the game changers for any room. Okay, now you might think it’s too much, too bold, too loud. But, if it’s balanced well within the space, it doesn’t have to seem like that.  It just needs some other attention seekers that divert the attention away from its boldness.

If you’re still not convinced, I also love this Raika rug below. It’s from her new collection “Curated” which will be available within the next month or so.

Made from hand knotted wool and silk. The wool is sourced from nomadic desert sheep of the great Indian Thar desert.  Life spent under the strong, hard sun means their wool becomes soft and shiny and is the perfect background for the gorgeous sari silk used for the motifs. The sari silk is made up of old saris so is recycled and eco-friendly. Amazing!!

Let me know, if you’d like more information, samples or prices. To see all Wendy Morrison’s rug, head over to her website.

I’m part of Decology

Decology is an online bespoke and accessible design platform connecting interior designers with you, the client who is willing to put some work into your decorating project or makeover yourself while getting guidance from a professional designer.

Honestly, I was waiting for something like this for a few years. Sometimes I have to reject projects because of their location or time-commitment, which is very hard to do. But family has to come first so that’s why, for now, I can only offer my e-design services. Decology works in a very similar way. It is basically an online service where you submit your ideas, vision and wishes for your space. Within few days you receive concept board/moodboards from the Decology designers. You pick the one you feel you want to work with and start collaborating on your room. The designer will provide visuals, floor plans and shopping lists. Once everything is finalised you can place and track all orders under one roof.

I love this kind of service!! Obviously, across the pond it is very popular to get design help through this kind of service. I think that over here, it may take some time but I’m a great believer and supporter of latest technologies in design. I think this is what will transform the interior design landscape in future.

It is still very new but today I have submitted my first moodboard for a review. It’s pretty basic ..so it hasn’t got the situ visuals, floor plans or the shopping list. This is just an idea for an office space I was playing with this morning based around the client’s art and working around the existing furniture.

I will be posting more of the process and details about the work I will be doing as a Decology designer, so you can see “the behind the scenes” and how it all comes together. In the meantime, if you are planning to redecorate in near future and you can manage the job yourself but need some professional guidance, check out Decology.
