Designer Furniture from Oz Design

My number one rule is to never follow trends too closely. Instead, I like to do what I call 'interior grazing'; grabbing a few nibbles from every scheme that appeals to me. Doing this creates a room that feels balance and won't date. This post is going to explain my philosophy further!

Brown Sofa - Oxford - from Oz DesignA friend of mine recently told me she was at a loss when it came to decorating around her brown leather sofa.

100 Ways to Happy Chic Your Life by Jonathan AdlerIf my mother told me tomorrow that I was adopted, I think I'd book a redeye flight to New York to declare myself Jonathan Adler's brother. We seem to share the same adoration of colour, a love of quirk, a fondness of humour and a partiality to a scatter cushion or seven. It's in his latest release - 100 Ways to Happy Chic Your Life - he cements himself as my ultimate go-to guy for out-of-the-box home decor inspiration. So, we may not be brothers, but we are at the very least cut from the same cross-stitch!
