One piece of news I’m delighted to share with you is a recent interview I did with the lovely Tudor over at Terry’s Fabrics. They are running a Creative Trends feature where interior designers, crafters and DIY bloggers share their recent projects and designs. Thank you Tudor for including me in this feature, it was an honour to be asked to contribute.

As much as I love a calm neutral backdrop to a design scheme, a bold pop of colour can bring fun and drama to an interior space. Often all you need is a bolt of colourful cushions, a few colourful chairs, or a quirky signature piece to bring a room to life.
Decorating a space in a white palette visually increases space and light and can add a dramatic impact to a room. But developing a successful design can be difficult. Get it wrong and you end up with a space that appears cold and sterile, but get it right and you can achieve stunning results.
Even though my namesake Emerald Green was the 2013 colour of the year, it’s not a shade I’m overly keen on. But my, I do like Radiant Orchid. An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm
