What an amazing day we had at Grand Design Live (Excel London) we had the pleasure of taking over their Instagram for the day and meeting the wonderful Kevin Mccloud!
Firstly we have to admit the show has really opened our eyes to plastic pollution thanks to the teams efforts to raise awareness and a fantastic talk by Friends of the Earth.
We were saddened to learn about the huge amounts of species tragically effected by plastic and shocked to find out the average plastic bag – used for just 12 minutes, will not disappear for up to 1,000 years!
We will certainly be doing our bit to research more on this and ways in which we can reduce plastic in our homes.

We really enjoyed visiting all the exhibitors stalls from floating chaise lounges to a camper van made out of salvaged for sale boards….this truly is a home show on a grand scale!
Our favorite stand had to be The Vintage Fridge Company…. they specialise in the refurbishment and supply of original “Ice Box’s” and vintage refrigerators, how cool is that…..?
They also had beautiful cast iron fireplaces, floor tiles and even a vintage shower!
We had the pleasure of meeting some of the lovely team from Grand Designs TV show (one of our fav programmes) and Kevin was an absolute delight to chat with, we even managed to squeeze in a Boomerang!
We cant wait for next year, so make sure you get yourself down to the show open until May 13th!
