Making Spaces in Print – Pt 4

This time last year, I was ripping out this fireplace. Very cathartic indeed. And one year later i’m sharing the latest magazine feature for Making Spaces. Come and see the very same fireplace and the room it’s sat in, in this month’s edition of HomeStyle Magazine. The Sherwood Forest Project in print Doesn’t it look great? My very wonderful client agreed to be in the pictures, sit still and even wear shoes. She is not a fan of shoes at all. The room may look a little different in the feature as things were moved around for the shoot. The left hand alcove was fiddled with a fair bit. Magazines don’t like to include TV’s in shots as they’re so f’ugly and a complete arse to make look good in photos. Annoying if you’re looking for cool ideas of how to incorporate them into your home though. Kind of does my head in that they insist on taking them out, I mean, we (nearly) all have one. So here’s a shot of where it actually …

Making Spaces in Print – Pt 3

It’s June! When the hell did that happen? Last time I checked we were all dancing around a maypole. Blimey. So, yeah, May has flown by, and as they say, “time flies when you’re having fun”. And I was. The Houzz UK feature, which was wonderfully confidence boosting, prompted an avalanche of emails. A new project on board already and another consult booked for next week. Making Spaces was interviewed for Yorkshire Living, a complimentary magazine, still available to pick up in and around the God’s own country. Keep an eye out, you can’t miss it. Making Spaces only bloody made the FRONT COVER! Look! Sherwood Forest in all its glossy glory. Then my very first design project from October 2014, before Making Spaces even officially existed was in Homestyle Magazine. Take a look and have a read. It’s pretty cool to think the whole living room was made-over for £1000.   And if that wasn’t enough, i’m currently in this month’s (July) edition of Real Homes magazine. I’m sitting on a chair this time as …

Making Spaces in Print – Pt 2

In October last year I wrote a bit of a heart to heart giving you guys some insight into Making Spaces, who I am and how this all began. Near the end of this rather cathartic post, I let it slip I’d had some of my work photographed for a magazine feature. It was all very exciting. It was lovely to have my own home featured in print, but having your work and someone else’s home photographed, all because of you and your mad design ideas… well it felt pretty damn good.   The Blue Room, which you may be familiar with, had its very own photoshoot, AND a four page feature in the Dec/Jan edition of HomeStyle Magazine. And it looks great. Big thanks to Olly Gordon and Abbi Henderson for a great day of fab styling, photography with a smile, champion crumpet eating and Yorkshire tea drinking. I cheekily asked HomeStyle for the PDF’s so I could show you guys. So thanks to them for sending them over and letting me share on Making Spaces. Let’s have a peep. …
