THE COLLECTION – VINTAGE/RETRO

Sourcing vintage/retro fabrics has become my latest fad – just loving it … beautiful abstract prints that hold good today or colourful florals that Aunty Betty would have donated her housekeeping for.

This is the latest Collection at crush-cube.co.uk but of course it’s not me just to use one fabric! I’ve set them alongside lovely Designers Guild’s fabrics to create unique, useable covers.

Here are a few to get your taste buds going (the full range has yet to be put onto the website but you can view them on my facebook page facebook.com/crushandcubes in the meantime :))ImageImage

An original, stylish seating for those discerning people wanting something different and unique.

THE ONE!

I found myself today in a well known designer trade outlet store lusting after the amazing array of brightly coloured handbags – which one do I choose? I loved them all! How do I choose the ONE? So I held them up against myself in the mirror to see which ONE felt and looked right for me, just as you would with a CrushCube. Look at the style and colours in your space and choose ONE that feels right for you ‘cos once you’ve got that cube in your space you’ll smile every time you see it and use it – just like that fav handbag – beautiful and practical at the same time!ImageImage

Wild and Coffee

Situated on New Oxford Street London this rustic and quintessentially ‘now’ coffee shop is a must visit not just for the great coffee but also for the understated interiors.

Go see for yourself!

Here’s a little taster …

Accessorises ca…

Aside

Accessorises can make or break the whole ambience and ethos of a space.

As an interior accessory CrushCube adds a splash of colour, texture, originality, creativity and style as well as having a purpose. The beauty of CrushCube is not merely visual! The zipped cover means you can restyle your CrushCube without having to start from scratch with fabrics of your choice from this decade or from time gone past. Contact inspired@crushinteriors for more details or have fun on the interactive page on our website crush-cube.co.uk .

This new retro/vintage range is fused with contemporary fabrics to create an original seat/small table.

Trompe L’Oeil to great effect

Trompe L'Oeil to great effect

After a lovely country kitchen dinner at The Pig Hotel, Dorset we retired to the lounge where I took this photograph of the trompe  l’oeil plaster work. I think it looks fab and is a precursor of the whole place. Here is how the owners describe the hotel –
‘Home grown in every way – breaking the mould of designed boutique hotels, daring to be comfortable in its own skin, working with what it has and recognising what is good about that. It isn’t perfect, its warm, relaxed, comfy, interesting, and homely with muted colours, a bit shabby chic and evolved rather than interior designed –actually we have recycled a lot of stuff – restoring and reconditioning pieces but adding twists and quirks here and there. Sitting areas have big chairs and squashy sofas, roaring fires in winter and a relaxed bar to hang out in.’

Well worth a visit.
