Spanish design | Gandia Blasco

September 4, 2017

I’m starting the week by sharing another discovery from the recent ‘Sunny Design Days’ tour of Spain, organised by the Spanish Design Association (RED). For me, one of the highlights of the trip was a visit to Gandia Blasco, a family-run company founded in the small Valencian town of Ontinyent in 1941. Originally a blanket […]

Spanish design | Viccarbe

August 11, 2017

Today I’m sharing another discovery from the recent ‘Sunny Design Days’ tour, which was run by the Spanish Design Association (RED) to give a group of international bloggers a first-hand insight into Spain’s burgeoning design scene. I have to confess that I didn’t know very much about Viccarbe before the trip, but I soon fell […]

Today I’m sharing more from the ‘Sunny Design Days’ tour of Spain, organised by the Association of Spanish Design (RED) to give a group of international bloggers the chance to experience the best of Spanish design first-hand.

Spanish Design | Hotel Alexandra, Barcelona

July 24, 2017

A few months ago, a rather unexpected and very exciting email popped into my inbox. It came from the Association of Spanish Design (RED), a not-for-profit organisation that promotes Spanish design around the globe.

After last month’s ‘art special’, I’m going back to normal with my November round-up of new furniture and homeware launches. So, without any further delay, here are some of the designs that have caught my eye over recent weeks…

Our wedding

November 13, 2017

Despite my normal camera-shyness, I’ve been longing to share some photos from our wedding back in May. I’ve had to wait until now because, excitingly, it was featured on a couple of wedding blogs and I wasn’t allowed to post anything beforehand, but now I’m free to reveal all! And for anyone planning their own […]

Exploring Skåne | Malmö

November 3, 2017

It’s time for another instalment from my recent trip to Skåne with Visit Sweden and Visit Skåne (read the first here), and today I’m focussing on the region’s capital, Malmö. Sweden’s third-largest city was once a thriving port and shipbuilding centre, but since its heavy industry died out in the 1980s it has reinvented itself as […]
