This month is the month of events.I’m a keynote speaker at May Design Series more on that below and I’m also holding a book launch and COLOUR workshop next week with Anthropologie (anybody who subscribes to our mailing list will receive the invite shortly), super exciting! It’s next Wednesday evening at their Regent Street store, just to give you a heads up. Tickets are £20, but the ticket price is redeemable against anything you buy on the night, so a good excuse for a bit of a browse round the lovely Anthropologie stock too.

Back to the May Design Series. For anyone who doesn’t know about this show it’s probably one of the most definitive international interiors trade shows around, held at London’s Excel Centre. Everyone in the biz attends, from interior designers and retailers to architects. and over 400 brands exhibit.

On Sunday 17th May I’m holding two masterclasses. The first is for all retailers, aspiring retailers and budding entrepreneurs: “Creating Inspirational Retail Spaces”. I’ll be outlining how we have created a super successful retail store from my top 6 tips for setting up shop, to finding your niche in the marketplace. I’ll then focus on how to think beyond just being a retailer to becoming a brand, and help you determine your own brand personality. It will be a full on crazy fast paced hour so make sure to bring a pen. I talk fast!

In my second seminar I’ll be going back to design and talking Stylish Homes. I’ll be drilling into how to decorate out of your comfort zone, my ultimate tips of the trade, insider knowledge, tons on styling tricks and of course my ultimate low down on colour. I’ve written a book on it, so there’s plenty to say!

Registration is free, and you can register here. Hope to see you there!
