Take note of where you are, who you are with, or what you are doing when you feel like the best version of yourself

YOUR LIFE AS INSPIRATION
This picture belonged to my late husband. It is African fabric which has been washed, stretched and framed. I’ve had it for the best part of 30 years. Secret? Even with all the art, African and otherwise, in my home, I could never quite find a home for it. You know, that gut feeling you get when you hang a piece and just know it’s in the right spot? After years of waiting in the Green Room, however, this picture immediately came to mind when I found this gorgeously woven silk fabric (pictured centre). This neglected little picture eventually found its home and went on to inform the décor and cushion collection which now adorns my sofa.
What in your world could inspire a cushion collection?
The Blue Lagoon Collection
Unusually, I didn't have a name for this collection when I started looking through blue and green fabrics. One day, in a sea of swatches and fabric, a friend walked in and said: "Mel, your apartment looks like The Blue Lagoon." Sometimes inspiration is very very ordinary.
If you're always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be
PERMISSION TO BREAK THE RULES
It's exhilarating to forget "design rules" now and then and use your eyes and instinct to tell you when a room is dressed right. Right for you.
These elegant gold, faux fur cushions break the pattern-on-pattern rule to stunning effect. Go on, have fun with your room and cushions and pay those rules no never mind.
