Colette van den Thillart has a rockin space in London. I've seen bits and pieces of her home but was very happy to see a spread in my latest issue of House & Home (there is much more to see of the above space...so to my sister I would say that this is another magazine that I would put on the suggestion list to subscribe to , go here). Anyway, Colette is the creative director for Nicky Haslam at NH Designs and when doing a little googling on her I came across an article where she gives a list of 10 design tips and thought it would be fun to share. On her list was painting the inside of a lampshade pink because it will make you look wonderful. Go here to see her list.
Speaking of lists, how is your list coming along? Something about Christmas Eve tomorrow.
P.S. - The above faux bois rug in the top two pictures is a Martha Stewart rug for Safaveih just in case you like it too.
