Santander-cycle-bike-hire-london1. Spring is the best time to ride through London, especially on a blue skied, sunny day. How gorgeous is all that pink blossom?Flower-market2. I think my permanent social media status should be: Always colour hunting!bright-bazaar-book-the-times3. The Times newspaper named the Bright.Bazaar book as one of the best books for your ottoman. Not only that but they also wrote how the prime minster’s wife, Samantha Cameron, was recently pictured in a rare interview sitting on a mustard-yellow sofa with graphic animal cushions that’s very similar to the cover of my book, which is my old living room! They said: “If it’s good enough for the prime minster’s stylish wife, then it’s good enough for us.” It’s so exciting to see such a huge endorsement for the book a whole year after it was published – I am thrilled!Colourful-houses-in-london4. London was on #makeyousmilestyle fire on Saturday afternoon.Paddington-bear-london5. I randomly spotted this tiny Paddington Bear soft toy in a window box and it made me smile.Whippet6. If I see a Whippet while walking through Primrose Hill high street (or, frankly, any high street) I will run after it and ask its owner if I can have a picture with it. This fellow is called Merlin and it made my weekend meeting him!Valspar-3d-house7. The interview I did with the Guardian newspaper about the 3D House I designed for Valspar Paint went live.bottlecloth-tablecloth8. I love the loose yet striking look of this Witty Conversation tablecloth, which was the result of a collaboration with talented Danish illustrator, Ulla Puggaard. 9. I’m smitten with this mini pot from Shino Takeda Ceramic. 10. I love all the colours and textures of this Tasseled Jacare Pillow.
