Interior Styling With Dwell + £100 Voucher Giveaway

25th November 2015



Last week I spent a rather fabulous Friday at the new Reading branch of Dwell styling and shooting three interior stories. It was a fun day and to add to the excitement a large delivery of shiny new stock arrived, bonus! I enjoy a challenge and I have to say styling and shooting in a store with customers gave me just that. Thank goodness for the friendly Dwell team who were on hand to help me set things up. Anyway here are the results, I’d love to know which is your favourite room.


For my first story, I decided to create a mostly monochrome and slightly Scandinavian dining area. I injected a little warmth with the use of gold and greenery and included a rug and lamp to draw things together. I love every item in this room, especially the shelf unit which would look great in my home.


Table | Gold chair | Black chair | Cushions (in store only) | Rug | Glasses | Vases | Lamp | Shelves | White vase (top shelf) | Tea light holder (top shelf) | Vases (bottom shelf)



Having recently created a white home office I thought it would be fun to experiment with some darker colours, so I chose a charcoal grey wall and a black gloss desk. To liven things up, I introduced some pops of colour and every copper item I could lay my hands on. I think the hot pink magazine / throw holder is an absolute delight!


Desk | Chair | Cushion | Lamp (in store only) | Bin | Magazine holder | Throws (here and here) | Pen pot | Dish | Candle | Tea light holder



For my final story, I pulled together a comfy and cosy living area. I love the muted tones and the softness of the charcoal rug against the white gloss coffee table. I couldn’t resist including the stylish black glass champagne flutes, a copy of Vogue and my leopard print shoes. The perfect place to relax after a hard day at work.


Sofa | Throw | Coffee table | Glasses | Rug | Vase | Lamp



Before leaving Dwell, I chose the porous sculptural vase and the grey chevron cushions to try at home. I think they’ve fitted in beautifully!



The lovely people at Dwell would like to give one of my readers a £100 voucher. Exciting eh? Simply enter below – the winner will be selected at random and the giveaway is open to UK residents only. Good luck!

    I think I like your desk area the best, the magazine holder, as you say, is a delight, and I like the cubic rug a LOT! What a fun thing to do, style your own corners like that.

    Being currently sat in my ‘home office’ (which looks suspiciously like a …kitchen table, covered in toys and piles of stuff) my favourite is the home office! We’re extending our loft next year and I’m going to make myself a cosy corner. Love that you’ve gone for the dark grey and not white. The pink looks amazing too x

      Thanks Gill. How exciting to convert your loft into an office, I can’t wait to see how it looks!

    I think “home office” is my favourite. But all the looks are very nice!
    What a pity is only for UK people! Very stylish place!
    Ps: I love your pullover!

    Honestly – I think I like your home the most because it’s a bit lighter (I love white walls). We just bought our first home and I can’t wait to decorate.

    Gah! Why have I moved away from Reading?! I love Dwell!! I think my local one now is probably Manchester. I am going to have to find out because that brass cage lamp – need that in my life!
    Looks like such a fun day – I love styling and cannot imagine how cool it must be to be unleashed in a shop and allowed to take your pick!
    Fingers crossed I win, then I can get that lamp! 🙂
