Daniel Bland is an artist who specialises in hand painted, gold foil murals. The results are absolutely breath taking! So, we were delighted to have the opportunity to speak with Daniel to find out more about his career and inspiration behind his pieces.
Have you always been creative and can you tell us a bit about your journey to becoming an artist?
I always wanted to be an artist but my ‘sensible’ head always told me that is impossible to make into a paying career, so once I left school I went straight into retail and kept my artwork as a hobby. It wasn’t until I started my Instagram account @bland_design and posted photos of my home and decor that found my audience and it gave me the confidence to try and turn it into a business.
Velvet furniture is visually stunning (and one of our personal favourites), however it is a unique material, so we’ve put together some top tips on how to care for velvet furniture, to keep it looking its best for years to come.
Why does velvet require special care?
Velvet is a type of woven tufted fabric, which can be made from several different types of fibres that are then woven on a specialist loom. The fabric creates a short dense pile, which gives the velvet its unique softness. However, due to its unique finish, it requires a little maintenance.

Today, Sisi welcomes us into her bohemian rental home in Brighton. Our customers often ask us for advice on how they can add personality when renting and Sisi is the perfect example of how this can be achieved! She shares how her battle with chronic illnesses and childhood in Madagascar has influenced her interior. With a warm colour palette of pinks, peaches and oranges, her home practically radiates warmth and positivity! We love the way she has paired bold patterns of polka dot and animal print with boho details of fringed wall hangings, natural wood and leafy foliage.
