Airbnb debut

Here are some pictures of Brian's recent project, an Airbnb property in Kent. The look is country chic minimal, the design maximises space and position and the overall effect is a comfortable, functional, family-friendly interior. If you ever find yourself in Four Elms, near Chartwell and Hever Castle, do check it out.

Please contact us if you're interested in talking to Brian about a similar project.


Brian visits Siberia

Brian Lawrence and fellow British Institute of Interior Design member Nadya Ruvinsky were recently invited by hosts Sib Build to give a presentation on British interior design, trends and product innovation in Novosibirsk, Siberia.

This was a wonderful opportunity for both of them since Siberia is a highly developed area, both culturally and economically and many new attractive property developments are underway.

The presentation profiled four key British companies; Parker & Farr, Decorus, KAAJ and Jacaranda, who all supported this project. They were met with an enthusiastic response by interested commercial parties, property companies and designers. The Russian press were also there, and the event had radio and TV coverage.

As a result of this success, Brian and Nadya have been invited back next February to give a larger presentation.

Psst! Want to stay ahead of the curve?

As the interior design world returns to a period of relative calm after the hustle and bustle of the September shows, it’s the perfect time for in.Design magazine to ask a selection of experts, including Brian, to look back and share their impressions and personal highlights of the season.

Brian was busy throughout September, keeping an eye on new directions and products at three shows: 100% Design, Focus and Decorex. His favourite, however, was 100% Design, thanks to its fabulous visitor-friendly design. Dividing the areas up – kitchen and bathroom products in one area, lighting in another, fabrics in a third – made it quick and easy for visitors to find the specialists they were looking for.

Highlights for Brian were Dune’s amazing wall tiles at 100% Design, which include circular shapes in the most wonderful colour ranges and chic mirror tiles. In Brian's words, ‘They’re a cut above anything I’ve seen for ages. To find something special and of such good quality is not always easy.’

Another find was Bauman’s incredibly innovative fabric collections at the Focus show, where the Swiss company launched their electrically lit voile fabric with tiny twinkling lights – a must-have for those extra special areas in your apartment or house!

And, at the Decorex show, Brian bookmarked Jacaranda carpets for future reference. Their new collections offer thick pile, a beautifully lush silky look and a great colour spectrum.
