We all turn to Pinterest and our favourite blogs when planning to decorate or redesign, but imagine an online platform that instead of providing inspiration, goes straight to the source, the designer.
Design For Me is an online service that allows the client to be in control of all of the decisions. Launched as a beta version last year, it matches and connects homeowners with residential architects, interior and garden designers, that the home-owner can then shortlist for their home transformation. Created by Emily Barnes, the site now has over 700 subscribers, a number that continues to grow. This social approach to bespoke design provides a direct service for the customer, and acts as an ever-growing online portfolio for the designer, what could be better?

Dutch designer Ernst Koning of Ilias Ernst has recently designed the Tulight - the latest product to be released for design collective, Puik Art. Inspired by everyday life, these no fuss fixtures come with all the necessary parts and can be assembled instantly. Available in black, white, red and mint-green, the silicone up-turned tulips are a great way to break up bellowing ceiling space, with four metre long free flowing lines and a pop of graphic colour.
