FOCUS 2008

I'm also off to the opening party of Focus at Chelsea Harbour Design Centre on Monday evening. I'm working for Besselink and Jones, who have a showroom there, so I was lucky enough to get a ticket. Hopefully I will come back with lots of photos to show you.

This is London's ultimate interior design event, hosted by Chelsea Harbour Design Centre during September each year. It celebrates the launch of over 120 new collections from a marvellous and diverse selection of interiors brands. As well as being able to view fabulous new fabrics, wall-coverings, furniture, lighting, carpets, kitchens, outdoor living and interiors accessories; visitors can enjoy inspiring lectures or forums, or specially curated photographic exhibitions.
Specially commissioned designer installations decorate the Design Centre during this event and these can be further appreciated when resting or catching up with friends at one of the themed bars or cafes, or dining at the Absolute Taste restaurant.
The first three days of Focus are for trade professionals only, on the final day all visitors are welcomed.

The Paper Cinema at Battersea Arts Centre.

I went to see The Paper Cinema last night (as previously blogged about, by me) at Battersea Arts Centre, and I just wanted to remind everyone who is around London over the next couple of weeks to go to see it. It was delicate, atmospheric, fascinating and stunningly beautiful. Kora was a perfect choice for the sound effects, and it made for a lovely I'm-so-tired-after-a-week-of-work night out.

Oh Dear...

I'm so sorry, I have been so busy settling into my new job (see picture above) and have just not had the energy to post recently. I will be back soon, promise. I'm also working on a new book project, so I'll be posting my progress on that too. I hope everyone is doing well and I'll be catching up with all my favourite blogs ASAP. x
