The word "Pretty" is from Old English prættiġ meaning “tricky, crafty, sly, cunning, wily, astute”.
Our interior design is no sly trick. It is a craft, an art which we apply astutely and lovingly.

Scotland Yard has warned businesses in London
to expect a Mumbai-style attack on the capital.
In a briefing in the City of London 12 days ago, a senior detective from SO15,
the Metropolitan police counter-terrorism command, said: “Mumbai is coming to London.”
Western spy agencies have foiled an advanced plan linked to al-Qaeda to attack Britain, France and Germany, according to British and US media.
Citing intelligence sources, Britain's Sky News said on Tuesday that Pakistan-based fighters were plotting simultaneous operations in London and major French and German cities, but the attacks were not imminent.
The broadcaster said that spy agencies had been tracking the suspected plotters who were planning attacks similar to commando-style raids seen during the co-ordinated atttacks of November 2008 in India's financial capital, Mumbai.
Intelligence officials have intercepted a credible terror plot against Britain and France, raising security fears at the Eiffel Tower on Tuesday, but failing to raise the overall threat level in either country.
