Went to Decorex in London yesterday! And this is a little preview of what I saw! A mix of patterns and colours . Optical with flowers, turquoise blues with salmon/coral pinks! Hawaiian Tropical! This was the stand of The world of Interiors, their style is typically sophisticated, convention English quirkiness, as always!

Lelièvre showed the second fabric collection by Jean-Paul Gaultier. Similar colourway and patterns that mixes Madonna like images with old fashioned bookmarks! I like!

Came across these Moroccan tables/chairs in lovely shades. Mixes well with the above interiors! More tomorrow!

At Designjunction I bumped into my old friends the architect and design trio Claesson, Koivisto and Rune who had designed these cosy lamps for The Andes House. Just one of the many destinations during LDF. Puh, got home yesterday afternoon after having done London Fashion Week and London Design Festival. Very inspiring and fun though!

Conran Shop is these days run by Sir Terence fashion designer son Jasper. And very well so! This was part of their exhibition during LDF, more about it later!

Reuse and vintage is still very much on! Here Galapagos that is trying to produce vintage furniture in new clothes as a line! Nice!

Hanging lamps, in a bunch or hung together is the big trend! Glass, metal, ceramic, wood - any materiel is aloud.
Ceramics are very much inspired by old designs, from the Victorian times to the 50-is and 60-is. Hot pink and gold are really hot here!

Neon's as an accent colour give that little extra to your interior or home! Very in! This was just a little preview of what to come here. Follow me and see more during the following week!

Tricia Guild launched her new book, Colours, yesterday at her home store on Kings Road in Chelsea/London. The flagship store had been redesigned in blues and greens with a hint of neon pink! Refreshing and vibrant! More about the fabric side of trends from me next week when Focus (Chelsea Design Center, Decorex and a lot of the interior design fabric showrooms show their new collections.

When I was working with Elle Decoration in Sweden in 1990 the trend was very much about branches! It is all back but more colourful and oversized! There was also a big focus on lamps in any forms at London Design Festival this year, from floor lamps like this to hanging ones in glass, with croched shades etc. More next week...

Knitted, croched...the handicraft trend when i comes to lampshades continues. This i saw at Tent yesterday...more later on here...now I am on my way to the Victoria and Albert Museum to see some more design...full report next week! Have a nice weekend.

Moooi had made their exhibiton at their showroom in Portobello Docks more human! Felt like you were in somebodies home! Well worth a visit if you are in London this week!

Breakfast à la John Bauer at Moooi. Lovely display made me feel like a little troll in the forest. Lovely!

Tom Dixon held a fun speach with his little dog under the arm!

New kitchen gadget from Tom coming soon, and a new book is out! More to come here soon!

Tea party at Claridge´s with Mulberry yesterday!
Mulberry showed their SS14 collection yesterday at Claridge´s in London. Teaparty with invitations that included a Wedgwood Mulberry teacup! This is my favourite outfit, you who knows me would have known that. Black leather and with no bondage is my style!
