The Bramwell Brown Blog

Meet the Blogger and their Weather Clock

This week we are meeting interiors blogger Pati from Style Squeeze

Can you tell us a bit about your blog please?

Style Squeeze – is a blog for small spaces that are big on style. I love DIY so most of the time I show how to create items for your home – that are easy and affordable to make but at the same time create big impact. I also write about my favourite brands and small businesses who I simply adore, in order to introduce them to our readers.

What's your favourite room in the house and why?

The living room simply because this space was created by everyone in my small family – we all added a piece that represents us, be it my husband's favourite vinyl collection, my daughter's love of all things green and pink and artwork.

The living room is also the most crazy-looking out of all the rooms, we believe that you should have a fun in life and the same we apply to our home.

Where do you hang your Bramwell Brown Weather Clock and why?

At the moment it is hanging in my daughter's room, but as we all want to use and enjoy it, it will most likely live permanently in the hallway. It is fascinating how the timeless design and mechanics behind it makes people of all ages “tick” – my daughter was brought up in a digital age and she is truly mesmerized by how it works, it's like a piece of artwork.

Can you sum your Bramwell Brown Weather Clock up in three words?

Usable art, classic, timeless.

Any tips for incorporating clocks into your interior design?

Clocks can work in virtually any space not just workspace or kitchen, and create a great feature, so don’t be afraid to use them alongside your favourite prints and wall hanging objects. A clock like that is a work of art in itself and deserves to take a pride place in your home.

What are the big interior trends that we should be looking out for in the second half of 2018?

Think autumnal colours and textures - burnt oranges, mustard yellows, chunky knits, candles – anything that will make your space cosier and warmer. I also think that reclaimed wood is getting more and more popular and for me it adds that extra texture. You can also use baskets to store things, old apple crates turned on its side (with attached wheels) to create a perfect side table for that rustic feel.

Finally, we love mechanical/ analogue objects; what mechanical/ analogue do you have in your home or remember from your childhood that you love(d)?

I am an 80s child – I love listening to a good old vinyl record, I’ve still got one at home and use my trusty technics’ sl 1200. I also have some of old vintage cameras that my family had – for me it’s a piece of history that shows great workmanship that stands the test of time.

Thank you to Pati for speaking with us.
