Doorways of Gozo and Malta

During a recent trip to Malta and Gozo I loved seeing the faded, weathered and soft colours of doorways and window shutters, of quarried stone and smoothed marble.  These cool colours are the perfect foil for the hot sun and intensely blue sky. Tranquil and cool and some inspiring colours, especially for mohair curtaining colours....a real Duck Egg blue - hard to achieve, but a total classic.  I had such curiosity about what is behind these doors:  the churches led to grand and opulent interiors, the houses from the odd glimpse that I had were simple and tranquil and cool.

100% Design, South Afrrica

We were thrilled to partner our friends at Evolution for the inaugural showing of 100% Design South Africa, held in Midrand, Johannesburg for five days alongside the well known and popular show, Decorex.  There were a total of 50,000 visitors who came to see the dynamic mix of new and old interior companies, young designers with cutting edge furniture, lighting and really endless products, fabrics, ceramics - all on show.
