Joy of Living……….

Last night I was very fortunate to attend the opening of the Joy of Living  at Somerset House.

100 new and established designers were asked to create a one-off artwork out of a single sheet of A4 graph paper in a bid to raise £50,000 for Maggie’s Cancer Centres.

Masterminded by Max Fraser of the London Design Guide, each artwork is priced at £250 and only once sold will the name of the artist be revealed. For more information I recommend you read the interview with Max over at Confessions of a Design Geek.

The diversity of ideas and the creativity was astonishing and it was probably no surprise to anyone present that a third of the exhibits were already sold after only half an hour.  Please don’t let that put you off though, the exhibition is well worth a visit and is on until 21st March.

Joy of Living, Somerset House, Victoria Embankment, WC2R 1LA. 

15th – 21st March, 10.00-18.00

    Hello Carole, I’ve just bought my first flat and am looking for an interior designer. I love that you love Kit Kemp as she is my favourite designer, but she doesn’t do private commissions. I wonder if you could send me photo’s of your interior design work? Do you have a website?

    I look forward to hearing from you.
