This week my favourite decorative surface - tiles. It's amazing how the simplest tile can create an amazing effect with the right design, pattern and grout colour but just look at these wall and floor showstoppers.
I've been looking around for new suppliers for some new projects and so paid a visit to Hampstead as I'd heard of a great little shop up there - Via Arkadia was definitely worth the visit.
NB Tiling can be DIY'ed but trust me (I've tried it) it's a long, dirty and tricky job, that's why The Open Plan has a team of trusted decorators we like to use in our client's homes and business spaces, whilst we make sure that you see and get to choose from all the best designs and colours. So don't go it alone The Open Plan
*Just like the city itself, London's Interiors blogs offer something for everyone.
Whether it’s a calming space to relax, a family-friendly environment or unexpected snippets of inspiration at every turn, these London-based bloggers have captured the hearts – and design sensibilities – of thousands in the capital and beyond. Step inside and see for yourself…
The Open Plan
Whereas most interiors bloggers start their sites as enthusiasts with a great eye but little design experience, Lisa Roberts-Goldner of The Open Plan studied at the Chelsea College of Arts and has her own interior design business. Despite her impressive professional credentials (including working for the uber cool kitchen company Plain English and with a host of notable designers) her blog is full of fun and quirky observations that make up her trademark style. Expect cool interiors spotted around London, places to visit for design nerds and advice on everything from paint selection to choosing a new kettle.
