    French romance… German efficiency… Scandi shabby chic… there’s no denying the wealth of design inspiration we take from our European neighbours. Whether you crave a touch of the Med in Macclesfield, the Alpine look in Aberdeen, or the feel of Sorrento in Streatham, there’s always a way to make a European scheme work, whether you go all-out in your look, or incorporate smaller elements.
