The Writing is on the Wall……
There’s no denying it, chalkboards are everywhere in interior design these days.
Don’t you just love these……?
We have used Marnie Moyle’s’ beautiful creations in a number of our projects. Each year she adds new products to her collection, which are not only simply classical in design but also grow and change throughout the years because of the inherent qualities of the material used – Green Oak.
Through The Looking Glass….
Someone we have come to admire not only for her incredible work, but more importantly the fact that a lot of her inspiration is channelled through her love of plants and gardens.
The digital age has dramatically changed the relationship between our home and working lives. But while styles may change, the fundamental requirements of workspace design remain the same.
