Oliver Heath will be familiar to many from his stint on the first mainstream interiors show Changing Rooms in the 1990s, but while the other designers have continued to makeover rooms and design various products for the high street, he has gone in a different direction turning towards eco design, sustainability and biophilia and has…

Notoriously private about her home, Michelle posts only corners of her rooms and has said she will never, ever, invite a magazine into…

In the home of interior designer Kelly Hoppen, Sophie Robinson and Kate Watson-Smyth take a tour of her home. The renovated house features a quadruple height ceiling, open-plan kitchen dining table large enough to seat 30. #openplan #diningtable #madaboutthehouse #kellyhoppen

Now the first thing you need to know about Kelly Hoppen’s home is that yes while big (enormous) with tall (quadruple height) ceilings and it may be in shades of her signature taupe, there are so many things you can take from it as inspiration for our own (probably smaller. Just a tad) places. You…
