An avid lover of all things opulent, the latest addition to our Bloggers in our Corner series champions timeless luxury when it comes to design inspiration.
It is our pleasure to meet Martyn White, of Martyn White Designs, who shares his love for creativity and his passion for interior design, photography and art on his stunning blog.
Here, Martyn tells us why we should use our homes as our very own mood board and how we should never be afraid to experiment. In Martyn’s words, “If you love it, that is all that matters – rules are there to be broken.”
What is your blog in a nutshell?
A focus on luxury interior and furniture design. My main aim has been to create an inspirational platform, introducing readers to new designs and styles that they may not have considered before. Hopefully to inspire people to go all out and live in luxury!
What is your top interior design tip?
Do not be afraid to experiment – if you love it, that is all that matters – rules are there to be broken! People always ask me if they have decorated their homes correctly and I always say something along the lines of, “It is your home, if you cannot express yourself there, where can you!?”
What do you think is the next big interiors trend and why?
It really is all about bespoke! Creating an item that is personal to you. I think there will be an expansion on this in the near future with 3D printing creeping up on us, I am slowly starting to see 3D printed accessories and furniture design being featured!
A perfect Sunday is….
Sunday is olive day, if I am not eating as many olives as physically possible, I will be roaming the streets of London looking for inspiration and taking in such an incredible city.
Who should we be following in the design world? Who are your inspirations on social media?
Other than myself, I am a huge fan of Tom Dixon (@TomDixonStudio), LINLEY (@LINLEYLondon), Domino (@Dominomag) and Designboom (@designboom) for all my luxury and design fixes!
If you could have one piece of furniture from our website, what would it be and why? Where would it be placed?
It would have to be without a doubt the Mid Century Italian Drinks Trolley! I love to host parties and I feel that the one thing I am missing is a gorgeous drinks trolley. This would definitely impress the guests as I wheel their cocktails in!
