There is not much to say about this MUNK collective mirror, except to admire its simplicity and gorgeous design. We love it!

This Danish designed frame mirror gives a nod to the classic mirror you find at the barbers. The slim tray shelf is perfect for placing your bits and pieces with the mirror adding a different dimension to the items displayed on the shelf

Georgina Cave studied at the Interior Design School before founding Cave Interiors in 2002. With what has been described as “an infectious passion” for architecture, design, art and antiques, she soon became known for creating beautiful but real homes, each tailored to suit her clients’ individual needs, style & personality.

Having successfully grown the business with a relentless pursuit of creative quality, Georgina today leads a team of hand-picked designers which is regularly briefed to deliver spatial planning and end-to-end design for both old and new-build house projects, alongside some of London’s leading architects.

Drawing on long established relationships with specialist suppliers, craftsmen, builders and a vast network of international sources for salvage, antiques and unusual items, Cave Interiors’ work now extends to the complete renovation of historic and landmark listed buildings. Georgina herself has appeared on BBC1’s ‘Britain’s Empty Homes’, been profiled in House & Garden, as well as having her work featured in a range of magazines and the book ‘Casual Living’ by Judith Wilson, one of the UK’s leading interiors writers.

home: trend [ peach ]

2018 sees peach as the new colour to love. Peach is the ‘new’ blush – becoming a colour favoured as a great highlight in dark grey or black, or minimal white interiors.

It’s great as a highlight, but create a beautiful look with blending shades of the hue across a room, keep it minimal with no pattern but let the colour do the talking.
