I’ll be heading over the the National Floor Show next week – http://www.nationalfloorshow.co.uk/ – to get a little underfoot inspiration, and will be making time to listen to a presentation by the trend forecaster Victoria Redshaw. Earlier this month I did on on-line interview with them which has just been published on their webpage and blog at http://trendsblog.co.uk/?cat=11 (Posted 2nd September) and have blogged about them before https://moregeous.wordpress.com/2009/05/22/homesmine-summer-interiors-special/
I sometimes read interviews back and wince a bit, because I’m far to blunt for my own good. Maybe mentioning the gorgeous Carol Vorderman’s leather pants splitting at the Overseas Property Show wasn’t such a great idea?
One of Victoria’s questions was about my favourite products and designers. The clever bods at Scarlet Opus have put together a montage of some of those very items, and it’s fabulous!
In fact, when I saw the collage, it was like a mood board describing how I imagine my own home renovation will end up…. and it has inspired me to crack on with the hellhole which is the house I live in (think amazing Victorian higgledy piggeldy place but with no upstairs loo, plaster falling off walls and the thinnest windows in the world).
Mart, be afraid, be very afraid….
