  • Falling for Pastels

    Quite often when we're having our buying/marketing meetings at FBC HQ our favourite Miranda Priestly (of Devil Wears Prada, in case she needed an introduction) quote is brandished around: "Florals? For spring? Ground breaking." We're so often faced with the traditional, expected and predictable fashions that come with each season - warm tones for autumn, cosy textures for winter, the dreaded - florals for spring and the blatantly obvious brights for summer. These aren't new, noteworthy or blogworthy trends as far as we're concerned - you all know how to "do" the seasons and we're pretty sure you "do" them well. Our job, on The FBC blog, is to introduce you to the new, unexpected and actual ground breaking trends that your homes (and even your wardrobes) will welcome like a freshly ground, skinny latte on a bleary Monday morning.

  • Trend Report: Inky Blue

    For a little while the inky blues have sat in the background to the ever favoured blush pink, copper/rose gold and copper tones which have dominated our interiors for the past year or so. But now, the rich blue tones are coming to the fore to have their moment in our interiors spotlight. From dark indigo and navy to denim blues - these cool, deep shades are the perfect way to add a grown-up edge to the pinky hues in our homes. Dare we say it, but it feels as though the inky blues we're seeing rising to the top, could be a a slightly more colourful, design savvy alternative and a shade braver than the fail-safe (and still our fave really!) grey.

  • Design Tips for A Small Bedroom

    Unfortunately, we are not all blessed with huge amounts of square footage in our bedrooms - especially considering in some parts of London a double bedroom of 10'x12' would set you back £240k*, yes, that's just the bedroom! But what these rooms may lack in space they can well and truly make up for in character, charm, cosiness and comfort. There's something almost womb-like about being cocooned in a smaller bedroom, tucked up in your own little world. A diminutive bedroom sometimes manages to convey more about the person who lives there, as the items within have been carefully thought out and are obviously considered important to be granted valuable space. Another great benefit to having a smaller scale bedroom is that the design can remain simple without getting to overwhelming, you simply don't have the space to over complicate it.

  • Reflected Glory

    Modern mirrors no longer mean a rectangular sheet of glass above a bath, a la 70's bungalow chic or a rickety set of sliding wardrobe doors - a myriad of shapes, sizes, tints and frames now mean mirrors are not only functional but also pieces of art.

  • Bedside Story - Inventive Ways With Bedside Tables

    Typically reserved for the book you read before you go to bed, your phone charger, a glass of water and a myriad of other bits and bobs you may throw its way, the lowly bedside table is definitely a practical piece of furniture, but not one to be overlooked.

  • How to: Create a Beautiful Boho Bedroom

    We like to think of ourselves as rather free spirited here at The FBC, keeping things pretty fluid and flexible in our busy lives.
