So suddenly it’s October and we can legitimately start to think about snuggling up and nesting in our homes. It’s time to layer up the cushions, unfold the throws and give in to warmth and cosiness. After yesterday’s brass and glass lights, which will bring a warm glow to your rooms, I then found this…

Glass Pendant Lights

Now that bulbs have got themselves all sexy again and we don’t have to hide them behind lampshades, the glass pendant light has really come into its own. Even those who find the glare from a naked bulb uncomfortable may be able to deal with these as the glow from an incandescent bulb is so…

Cushions can be surprisingly controversial can’t they? For every one person who suggests changing the decor seasonally by swapping cushion covers, there are three more who leap furiously out from the wings shouting about how pointless cushions are and what a waste of space.
