Don’t freak out, I don’t always ride around on my pennyboard in Kurt Geiger Sharkie’s however, during fashion week, anything can happen :D
I saw the board, I saw the shoes, I saw the soft carpet where I would land if I were to fall so I took a chance.  Granted, I didn’t exactly get far, as I can just about stand in heels, but Kris managed to capture the rare and kinda cool moment. What do you think? Should I be cruising around LFW in heels next season?

New Marvel HQ: The Bedroom & Bathroom

November 11, 2014

Kris Atomic New Mavel HQ -6114

You, my dear friends are looking at the new and updated bedroom in New Marvel HQ. It’s got a custom-made “Headboard Workshop” bed, Linen H&M Sheets and an oh so sweet MADE.com chair. I kept things pretty neutral again, ensuring it was the perfect location for sleep and chilling to the maximum level. One of the main ways I achieved this look was by painting the room with Farrow and Ball’s Calluna. Sure there is a busy Ikat wallpapered wall but it’s behind the bed, so instead of being overpowering it’s a nice centre piece as you first enter the room. I also kept the furniture colours to greys, blues and white. Everything about the room is quite mellow and I found sticking to my chosen colours quite easy. At first, like me you might feel like its too matchy when initially picking items but by choosing items in a range of hues, you actually end up with a pretty sophisticated range of decorative items, hopefully leading to the emotion or feel you wanted to create for the room!

New Marvel HQ: The Living Space

November 9, 2014

Kris Atomic New Mavel HQ -6470

So here is the new living and dining space! Thoughts? Do you like the palette i’ve gone for? I wanted something relaxed, that would be a great place for a movie night but also for a meeting, so basically casual/cool but presentable. Somewhere that wasn’t insanely colourful but that would always have room for something new. So as you can see the main colours are light & dark grey, white and black. Plus lots of different wood textures from the floor to the tables to the stools. I think it really embodies a clean and neutral aesthetic, one that has SO much potential for future interior developments and seasonal moments like Christmas or Easter. Are you making over your living/dining space? Send me your Pinterest boards, i’d love to see the styles you’re going for!

So whilst researching I came across quite a few websites, so here is the first batch of them, more are to come. They all have different and really cool things, some require more time rifling through the pages than others but overall I think you’ll find them all pretty helpful!

Oh and here’s a funny little video of me picking some furniture from Dwell for the living room!
