    QUIZ! WHO LIVES IN A HOUSE LIKE THIS?

    by  • October 1, 2009 • Stylish living • 1 Comment

    I would love to think that if someone walked into my house they would INSTANTLY know that I worked for an interior decorating website, but the truth is they probably think I work as either an emma bridgewater spokeswoman … or a wine critic (imagine!)

    I then began to wonder who lives in all these houses I ‘step inside’ during the day. And indeed, what sort of house would a handsome lawyer, investment banker or doctor live in – and when can I move in?

    See if you can guess the profession of the owners of these gorgeous houses. In the mix we have a) a dairy farmer, b) a property developer  c) an interior designer d) an air hostess and e) an architect. Find the answers below.

    The fun side of geometry

    I think year 10 maths would have been much more enjoyable had I been able to look at roomsets decorated in on-trend geometric style … instead of wrestling with a protractor. It’s set to be really big this year, so I’ve been hunting for some great ways to incorporate the look (my maths teacher would be so proud!)

    Create a stylish splashback with quirky geometric tiles – I love the Moroccan feel of these bad boys!

    Make a statement with a diamond upholstery fabric – the green walls make this geometric headboard really stand out.

    Go for a subtly patterned honeycomb wallpaper and add some punch with colourful furniture, like these vivaciously violet chairs!

    Or if you’re feeling a bit braver, why not create the wow factor with a graphic feature wall in a grid motif design?
