PENSON's Pick: Home Offices

PENSON’s Pick: Home Offices

As somebody who spent her entire three years at university building up work experience by collaborating to various online magazines and websites, I know how hard it can be to try working from home. It seems like it would be the easiest thing in the world, but when it gets to midday and you’re trying to...
PENSON's Pick: Balconies

PENSON’s Pick: Balconies

Another first Monday of the month, another PENSON’s Pick. This time around we’re taking a look at balconies, the tiny piece of outdoor space that can completely transform your home if given the attention it deserves. The key to a great and, more importantly, useful balcony is to forget the idea that it’s to be used...
PENSON's Pick: Organisation

PENSON’s Pick: Organisation

If you’re anything like us (and by us I mean me) then you’ll be an advocate for all things neat and tidy. I like things to be perfectly aligned at a right angle, organised in height order and grouped by colour and/or item. In the world of design things can sometimes get a little hectic,...
PENSON's Pick: Rugs

PENSON’s Pick: Rugs

Rugs have a lot of power when it comes to influencing the first impression of a room. From opening up a space to adding some much needed character, if used correctly rugs can be a great (and cheap – if you know where to look) way to transform your home. Here at PENSON HQ we...
PENSON'S Pick: City Gardens

PENSON’S Pick: City Gardens

We’re lucky enough to be based at an office in the heart of SE1; a thirty second walk from Tower Bridge and another thirty second walk to Potters Fields Park – a green little sunspot that looks out across the river Thames and some of the most famous landmarks in history. That’s not a bad...
PENSON'S Pick: Feature Walls

PENSON’S Pick: Feature Walls

What was the one phrase that was said so many times on Changing Rooms it nearly made your ears bleed? “Feature wall”? That’s the one. The feature wall is everyone’s go to solution when they’re trying to revamp a room on a budget or to a deadline. It’s cheap, easy and – if it’s done...

PENSON's Picks: Exposed Brick

PENSON’s Picks: Exposed Brick

One of the biggest trends in interior design right now is exposed brickwork – whether it’s old, new, or completely fake, we all want our stone on show. If you’re hunting for some ideas to help you transform your frumpy Peckham flat into a rustic New York loft, then look no further. Here are some...
PENSON's Picks: Christmas Special

PENSON’s Picks: Christmas Special

Christmas has well and truly begun! In fact, with Christmas Eve tomorrow and the big day straight after, it’s pretty much over. But we couldn’t let Christmas pass us by without giving you a special edition of PENSON’s Picks to get you through the holidays  (you’re welcome)! Since this is a festive week we are...
PENSON's Picks: Storage

PENSON’s Picks: Storage

One thing that will instantly ruin the atmosphere of any environment – work or home – is clutter. The key to keeping things running smoothly is to have a successful organisation system, which generally translates to storage space. When it comes to storage you pretty much have two choices: keep it hidden or make it a...
PENSON's Picks: Beds

PENSON’s Picks: Beds

If you enjoy spending time in bed as much as we do, I guarantee you’ll be interested in this week’s PENSON’s Pick: wouldn’t it be so much more acceptable to waste away your weekends beneath the sheets if your bed was magnificent enough to be considered a work of art? Maybe you could even be...
PENSON's Picks: Windows

PENSON’s Picks: Windows

The theme of this week’s PENSON’s Pick is windows – big, small, weird and useless. All types of windows. Transparent holes into other people’s worlds. I actually didn’t realise how lovely windows could be until I started researching for this post and, trust me, windows are great. That’s probably why I ended up getting a little...
