Confession. I know I'm an interiors blogger but I've never actually put up a shelf. I've watched many times over as my hubby Jason does various bits of drilling into walls and levelling up shelves only to watch said shelves drop out of the wall because the plaster wasn't strong enough to hold it. I once recall being well excited that we had managed to put up our new circular shower curtain rail so that I could finally shower without spraying the entire bathroom with water only to have it slowly collapse on me, mid shower, mid shampoo. Almost more frustrating than when the boiler light decides to go out mid shower. Almost. Anyway...Read More
Award winning interior design blogger and interior stylist Sarah Akwisombe shows you how to create a statement home that fits you and your personality.
Just a quick one - the other day I was out having a much needed girly day with my mate in East London and stumbled upon what has to be one of the coolest and most intricate installations I've ever seen, for NikeLab x Ricardo Tisci.Read More
I often get asked where I find design inspiration in London and my favourite places are actually hotels and restaurants. They're usually more 'out there with their decor and I always go away with some fun new ideas. A couple of weeks ago, on a warm summer evening, hubby and I were asked to go along to stay at the Citizen M hotel in Tower Bridge to see what we thought.Read More
Living in a block of flats means we have a communal garden so don't really get to entertain outside much (boo), so when M&S invited me along to learn how to create a summer flower arrangement I got a chance to get stuck in and indulge myself. Learning how to create a summer table display and a hand tied bouquet was loads of fun, both of which I'm sharing below!Read More
Last week I launched my installation at Habitat's Tottenham Court Road. Considering it was just over 2 years ago that I got 'let go' from my full time office job, I can't quite believe it. When I was questioning whether I was any good at interiors or if I should just go and get another job I would have never thought that in such a short space of time something like this could happen. I thought I'd talk you through how the collaboration came about and show you a little bit of behind the scenes of the installation!Read More
Word up! Things have gone from 0-60 around here lately. What with No Bull Blog School, the blog, styling work and various other things a gwan I needed to find somewhere outside of my flat to really crack on and get productive. I've always loved the idea of shared workspaces but couldn't really understand why people who work for themselves would pay to go and work somewhere else when you could just roll out of bed and pick up your laptop.
So I decided to try it. AND THEN IT HAPPENED.Read More
Hey, hey, hey hey, I said hey, what's going on? Anyone remember that tune?! Banger. Anyway - I've just uploaded this week's vlog and amongst talking about my very exciting project with Habitat (which I'll tell you more about very soon), I'm also having a meeting with my business mentor, having a session with my money medium (yes that's really a thing) and juggling being a mama with being a blogger. Life innit!Read More
