Brighton Rock 2011

I am so excited about the re-make of Brighton Rock which opens next Friday 4/2. The seaside setting and the retro styling is going to be such a visual treat and may do for the 1960’s what Mad Men has done for the 50’s. After reading some of the reviews and watching some of the films clips online it inspired me to create some design boards.

New year, new start

Hi, I’m Karen and I am an interior designer and still life props stylist. I have been meaning to write a blog for some time now, so with the beginning of a new year it feels as though it’s a good time to start. I love anything design related…interiors, fashion, crafts, art, film etc…anything and everything is an inspiration.I love reading design blogs and was thrilled when last year my own home appeared as a sneak peak on Design Sponge. It was the highlight of a great year! Happy new year to everybody reading this and here’s to another exciting and inspiring year.
