It’s not quite been a long hot summer – but Abigail and Rachel have been reflecting on the importance of water. It’s also been a busy month or two… so while this was recorded in June we’re releasing it in July. We’ll be taking the rest of the summer ‘off’ (but do you ever REALLY stop thinking about design???) but hopefully will put up a short special to celebrate our 1 year anniversary of Every Day Design – the Podcast.
Sir John Soane is Rachel’s favourite architect of all time. A bold statement no doubt. But this month Abigail and Rachel visit the recently reopened Pitzhanger Manor in Ealing, West London and explore what makes Soane such an inspiration after all these years.
Spring is finally here. Abigail and Rachel talk about all things renewal. Journey with us through Rachel’s recent trips abroad and Abigail’s garden design revelations as we explore making old things new again.
We promise we’re not sponsored by Ikea… but when we found out that they had a new concept store on Tottenham Court Road in central London we just HAD to head over and find out how it worked.
The Ikea Planning Centre is there to give you inspiration for your (primarily kitchen) projects – without schlepping to one of the big blue boxes.
In this episode we take a break from our usual format and focus instead on the design consultation experience.
It was a blustery and busy February – we managed the take a family trip to the Design Museum, and reflect on some of our favourite design concepts like legacy and delight – but we didn’t manage to get this posted… so a little bit late – here is our (slightly belated) February edition.
In the bleak midwinter we’re still curling up on the sofa and getting engrossed in good books, film and tv. What does this have to do with design you may ask? So glad you did…
It’s been a remarkably eventful November for Abigail and Rachel – importantly Rachel ushered in a new decade in classic #EveryDayDesign fashion… more on this anon.
Can a personality be beige? How is an iconic building like a cushion? These and other pressing questions are explored in the latest edition, from Abigail Hall and Rachel Fisher.
Abigail and Rachel braved the rain and set off to record Every Day Design on the road (literally, so sorry for the sound quality!)
Open House London is an amazing opportunity to nose around people’s homes and public buildings. We chose a number of different options, and part of the fun of exploring what’s on during Open House is realising just how many amazing places are open to the public all year round.
It's been a scorcher of a summer - Abigail and Rachel talk about the importance of plants in design, the good and bad of water bottles and much more
