Tomorrow we have a rather special Instagram Live #UpTalk , featuring a luxury upcycler, a standout multi media artist and a brand storyteller and strategist supremo ..

plus a lady who is passionate about eco chic and designer-upcycling aka yours truly - featuring the latest in artcycling for interiors; it’s going to be amazing.

Great things happen when you collaborate and our conversation will be focusing on how an exhibition now on at @eden_gallery_newburgh , is showcasing the fruition of a joint venture between the worlds of art and designer-upcycling proving that collaborations are a foundation for innovation.

So do join us at 12 noon tomorrow to hear the story of how House of Upcycling member Shelley @bluaverydesigns met Celia @celia_straightfromthestudio via Karolina @estila.co with Chris @thehouseofup cheering on from the sidelines. It’s going to be engaging, informative and most of all inspiring and I’m hoping will lead to many more professional upcyclers, artists, designers and creators joining forces and making incredible things happen.

Collaborations really do make the world a more beautiful and unique place .. catch you tomorrow.

#UpTalk: @stuff_stitch_media


A new magazine is always a brilliant subject for discussion so we were delighted when founder of new publication Stuff Stitch, Robbie Richardson, joined us to talk about his work, vision and goals for this exciting new and groundbreaking media organisation. It was great to hear the story of how the magazine started, what’s happened so far, learn more about the first edition and hear how Robbie sees things moving forward. A must-buy for both amateur and professional upholsterers.

What is it they say about new experiences and embracing change?

Well tomorrow we’re doing just that because instead of our normal four-way conversation, we’re going for a three-way #UpTalk. This week’s topic and guest need a little more wiggle room to get their news and views across and we can’t wait for the conversation to begin.

My co-host will be member of the House of Upcycling Shelly Hudson @bluaverydesigns , a lady who is currently causing a bit of an upcycling storm with her creations and collaborations and our guest is Robbie Richardson of @stuff_stitch_media. Robbie heads-up the team that has launched a new online and physical magazine about the world of upholstery and its already receiving a lot of attention so we want to know more. Join us at 12 noon tomorrow and learn why Stuff Stitch is bringing a new story to the world of craft and reuse.

Repost • @thehouseofup Today’s #UpTalk is focused on championing wellbeing, vegan and environmentally positive ethics and how to introduce these elements to your business and lifestyle. It was a real delight and inspiration to welcome Chloe Bullock @materialiseint and Jecks Stone @personaabode , both interior designers who have been advocates for change for over a decade, seeking out better ways to support a planet and people positive methodology, long before the current wave of interest in the subject. My co-host Shelley Hudson @bluaverydesigns and I dipped into the knowledge pool that these two professional interior designers offer and listened and learnt a great deal about the resources that are available to help us all cut through the greenwashing and get too grips with what being sustainable really means. With @cop26uk next week, the time is right for action over apathy.

Very happy to be a part of this tomorrow at midday with Jecks 😍 @personaabode 💚


Repost • @thehouseofup Tomorrow’s guests on #UpTalk at 12 noon BST are not to be missed.

Following her recent success during a panel discussion @decorex_international and as the first accredited Vegan Interior Designer in the U.K, Chloe Bullock @materialiseint will bring her knowledge about how to create interiors that don’t impact on animal welfare and are planet positive to the #UpTalk table and @personaabode’s Jecks Stone will share her experience of creating interiors that consider both the wellbeing of her clients as well as reducing the impact updating homes can have on our planet’s eco system.

Our co-host tomorrow will be Shelley Hudson @bluaverydesigns , a member of the House of Upcycling with whom I’ve had many discussions about working sustainably. Saving furniture from landfill is only one aspect of how professional upcyclers are helping to turn climate change around and Shelley is currently looking into what options are available to help her business move up the style in partnership with sustainability ranks.

Join the conversation tomorrow, time we put more eco into upcycling. Time to start the journey to net zero.

With last week’s @earthshotprize awards (and that outfit Emma Watson wore 💚) still on our minds,

the Government’s new incentive to get us to install heat pumps being discussed (although I do wonder how many people will want/be able to install them as they cost more than gas boilers and are only efficient if a property is sufficiently insulated 😬) and with COP26 taking place in Glasgow the week after next, tomorrow’s guests on #UpTalk at 12 noon BST are not to be missed.

As I missed #UpTalk last Friday due to all sorts of things happening in the office which meant

the IG live had to be cancelled, I thought I’d pop by & say hello, thank you & welcome to new followers & to wish all you good people out there in Instagram land a happy & fulfilling week ahead.

I was thinking earlier (as I was late 😬) about my morning routine & how important it is for me to try & keep to it. If I’m late getting up I feel all at sea & it’s like a game of catch-up for the rest of the day. But sadly I’m not naturally an early morning person although over the past few years, with life in the House of Upcycling office getting busier by the week, I’ve adjusted to starting work in the office around 8am which really helps get my business head into gear & for me to feel more in control & motivated for the day - does that work for you too? I know a lot of people in business rise around 5am but that’s just not me, I’m better at getting up around 7.30am, a quick shower, then dress & breakfast at my desk as at least it’s light by then (particularly at this time of the year).

So have a good week, we’ve got #UpTalk ready for Friday, which is going to be a great, highly relevant conversation. In the meantime I’ll be looking forward to a week that will include working on our new website (& blog 🤔), looking at the possibility of an exhibition by Christmas & what we’re going to be bringing to the table in 2022 & I know you’re going to love what’s in store. As an aside, wasn’t it great to see the Duchess of Cambridge wearing upcycled vintage to the Earthshot awards & as for the outfit Emma Watson wore, Oxfam clothes gone designer or what 😎.

Right .. back to my iMac & Classic FM, I’ve a regular 9-12 date with Alexander Armstrong Monday to Friday you know 😉 (the wine’s for much later 😉)

Apologies Instagram, but there’s no #UpTalk today at noon due to altered schedules, pressure of

work & other things that sometimes get in the way of our online chats but we will definitely be back next week.

For continuity’s sake, I thought I’d post the 4-pane window with black & white images, that normally features #UpTalk’s exceptional guests who are contributing to the work & world of the House of Upcycling, photos often showing people who are setting new standards, informing & educating others about the need to make changes to protect our planet as well as ourselves. All are authors of a new paradigm which affects the whole of society including the interior design industry & its understanding of what designer-upcycling actually is, it’s merits, availability & raison d’être.

Thank you firstly to vegan interior designer Chloe Bullock of @materialiseint for mentioning the House of Upcycling during a Decorex panel discussion last week, to Gosia Michalak @gm.upcycling.studio for quietly & elegantly creating a marvellous refinished sideboard to showcase @crofts_assinder hardware on their stand at @decorex_international & to HoU members Anniken Mortimer @orange_otter_design & Kate Holt @colour_me_kt for talking about the HoU world of work in their Decorex discussions.

Its of huge benefit to our organisation as well as our members if they share the news that the House of Upcycling exists & is alive & moving things forward. It’s about our ethos & how our members are setting a precedent for what high-end professional upcycling for interiors is. Our members’ work may be emulated in the design of new interiors products, but never equalled for environmental prowess, aesthetic individuality & its benefit to the British economy. The House of Upcycling is not about myself, it’s about the power of a unique creative collective to make real, long-lasting changes for the better.

Painters, I'm curious - what do you listen to while you work?

For me it's usually Radio 1 (obvs, I am still 21), and of course #uptalk with @chrisecochic on a Friday. Yesterday though I dived in with Tristan @dogheaddesigns (a bit late to the party as usual 😆) and spent a perfect day painting and listening to him chatting with my favourites Kata @studio_twentyseven Polly @attic.furniture.qld and Chloe @maisieshouse (who were gorgeous and brilliant of course), Jack @jackedjunk (who was sooo composed during his first ever live interview, this boy will go far!) and the amazing Annie Sloan @anniesloanstagram who I could listen to for days. I have a couple more to catch up on today, there's my afternoon listening sorted 👌😁👩🏻‍🎨

For #UpTalk today we’re being escorted around Grand Designs Live at the NEC by House of Upcycling member Lisa White of @twistofsomerset.

Lisa is covering the House of Upcycling desk in the Ask An Expert zone from 2pm, taking over from Dominique of @malphor who is our Friday morning expert - we managed a quick chat with Domi in between appointments, it’s certainly proving to be a busy day! Meet our very talented members David Palmer of @dappraviation and Paul Parry of @baddogdesigns who are both hosting highly successful stands at GDL this year and see what else is on offer. So good to see live events returning.

Today’s #UpTalk live on Instagram at 12 noon is going to be in a slightly different format ..

as the House of Upcycling is taking part in the Ask An Expert section of Grand Designs Live this week, I thought it would be a great idea to include a walkabout of the show and see what’s happening. And who better to do this with than Lisa White of @twistofsomerset. Lisa will also be covering our Ask An Expert desk from 2pm this afternoon and giving out tips on anything from furniture sourcing to how to upcycle a china figurine into a table light - this lady is super talented! Before that, our Queen of Gothic Luxe upcycling, Dominique Malacarne @malphor is in the hot seat from 10am. Visit her and be entranced by her skills and images of her work; she’ll inspire you to not only think outside the box, but to upcycle it in a delightfully dramatic way as well.

If you’re off to Grand Designs Live, you can book up to 30 minutes for free with our experts. The online booking is now closed so make your appointment at the Ask An Expert desk.

Brushes and paint, both key elements of many pro upcycler’s work so it was with great interest that

we hosted today’s #UpTalk with guests Joel from @ecodecoratingtools (Eco Union) and Sophie from @sophiejamesdecorpaint Listen-in on a wide range of questions from dealing with sustainability to disposing of paint, colour trends to events. If you have ever picked-up a paint brush to upcycle or decorate, this talk is a must.
