Ebay collections

If you've visited ebay recently you might have noticed a new feature - ebay collections. I've been an ebay addict for longer than I can remember. My home is full of stuff I've picked up on ebay and it's often one of the first places I look when I'm shopping online.

Ebay collections is a new curated search feature that offers an additional way to find interesting things to buy on ebay. Previously, if you didn't know exactly what you are looking for it was sometimes hard to uncover the best stuff amidst the sheer volume of things on offer. Now you can browse dozens of Pinterest style boards for inspiration and can also follow the collections created by people whose style and taste you like.

Along with a number of other bloggers, I was recently invited by ebay to get involved in the launch of their new collections feature by curating some of my own. Celebrities including Danni Minogue, Kelly Hoppen, Reggie Yates and Alex James have also been involved.

I've put together 12 collections in total and you can view them here, but here's a taster of three of them.

The Kensington Hotel, London

South Kensington is one of my favourite London design destinations, so when the offer arose to visit The Kensington Hotel recently to review the interior of their new Knightsbridge Suite, I took little persuading.

Behind an elegant regency townhouse exterior, and enviably located just a stone's throw away from the V&A, the Natural History Museum and and the Brompton Design District, the hotel is part of the Doyle Collection, an Irish independent and family-owned hotel group. The hotel prides itself on the warmth of its hospitality and we were welcomed and enveloped by its friendliness and attentiveness to comfort from the moment we arrived.

Bouroullec brothers design fabric collection for Kvadrat

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have designed a range of upholstery textiles for Danish brand Kvadrat, to be launched in Milan next month.

The three 3D knitted collections - Canal, Moraine and Gravel - are knitted from stretch jersey, have a slightly quilted surface and are designed to be suitable for upholstering a wide variety of shapes.

The duo have previously worked with Kvadrat on a ready made curtain system and also on Clouds, their innovative textile tile concept, but this is their first fabric collection.

Parquet & Panelling

Parquet and panelling - just a couple of things to admire within the fabric of this light filled Parisian apartment designed by Belgian architect Nicolas Schuybroek.

The designer's acute sense of detail is artfully expressed in the careful edit of books, furniture, artwork and lighting. A monochromatic study in elegant minimalism.

Spring buds & blossom

The welcome sight of Spring blossom has made a resounding appearance over the past week or so. You can keep your blowsier blooms - these fleeting petals of humble Hawthorn (so light that they blow away in the slightest of breezes) and ripe, bursting buds of beautiful Magnolia are hands down my favourite things to stick in a vase.
