When the invitation came through to visit PAD Lifestyle and their exhibit at Elite London, I had a feeling that we would be in for some amazing and super luxurious interior inspiration. And I wasn’t disappointed.

Amidst the glossy stands displaying cutting-edge technology and hot tubs, plus a whole forecourt of private jets and classic cars, was a haven of beautifully curated interior accessories.

The lovely Anna from PAD managed to squeeze a tremendous amount of good design into the stand, creating a stylish and inviting space that felt like the kind of living room you wish your best friend hosted cocktail hour in.

Highlights for me were the delightfully riské Pols Potten tea set, where the ladies undress as you drink, Jonathan Adler gem trinket boxes for a touch of luxe accessorising, and the capacious Jonathan Adler dove grey velvet wing back chairs.

PAD Lifestyle were also launching a new collection of bespoke charm jewellery, with a particularly sparkly pineapple pendant catching my eye- that’ll be all the diamonds!

They also have a beautiful range of oversized coffee table books on suitably glamorous subjects, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton window displays- instant chic for any living room table.

Based in one of my favourite cities, Edinburgh, Anna sources the best interior finds from around the world, from small independent designers, to renowned trailblazers such as Tom Dixon and Jonathan Adler. With a range of affordable accessories and higher end investment pieces, PAD is firmly on my bookmark list of go-to boutiques for interior objects of desire.



I'm known for my creative high end wedding cake designs as founder of Olofson Design. Nowadays I can be found teaching my cake decorating style from London to Mumbai, writing about cake design and helping small creative businesses organise their messy minds and communicate more clearly.

But it's not just the years of experience in the wedding industry and cake decorating that I'm passionate about. BLOVED is my 'She Shed' where I can unleash my obsession for interior inspiration, style, travel and all things design focused. Fuelled by flat whites and sneaky cake.
