Okay so this first stop hasn't meant I have needed to travel anywhere but it is going to be amazing ride none the less. Next week is London Design Week at the wonderful Chelsea Harbour, it is a great time to catch up with friends throughout the industry, snack on some gorgeous bites and drink free glasses of champagne - and whilst all this is happening you get to see some of the new collections from wonderful fabric houses such as Romo, Zimmer and Rohde, Sahco, Designers Guild, O&L and more...
We will be keeping you up to date next week with daily events through our twitter and will even be posting glorious photos as we go round and view each of the new collections. This year I am especially excited to see what Zinc (above) come up with as I love the glamourous look they have. I am also extremely excited to be able to sit down and find the time to go through Zimmer and Rohde's complete collection - I love this fabric house and their range of sheers are second to none!
Also this up coming week is the Ideal Home Show, which starts today and we are giving away 2 ticket's to the show here, the show has been going for over 100 years and is a great place to see what is on the consumer market at the moment. As an interior designer it's so important to know what is being pushed in the consumer market as well as what is hot within the trade - you need to know what's out there! Whether your client wants to buck the trends or is completely uninterested is what is 'trendy' at the moment it is always important to keep your knowledge up.
If you are in London please do leave us a comment as it would be great to meet up. Also be sure to enter our competition as you could also win ticket's to the Ideal Home Show - which would really make the trip to London worth it!
