Now it would be fair to say that I am not renowned for my use of colour. I fall firmly into the monochrome end of the spectrum but every now and then, in the interests of fairness, I will make an exception. And this, people, is today’s exception. These gorgeous prints are part of the…

After another busy week toiling away at the coal face of journalism and interior design it’s time to float about some houses sprinkling Monopoly money hither and yon and wherever it may please us. Something like that anyway. First up, we’re off to west London. To this rather fabulous four bedroom freehold house in a…

Rock ‘n’ Roll Zoo Posters

I don’t, as a rule, tend to cover wall art/posters/prints (call it what you will) in the Mad House. This is mainly because it’s such a personal choice and most of the time I’m pretty sure I don’t like what’s on your walls and I’m equally certain you’re not too keen on my choices. But…

I have written about Tom Raffield before but when I received a press release with two of his latest designs on I really wanted to show you. Coupled with the brilliant photography (see credits below and in each image) I would love to have just one of his pieces in my own home. The trouble…

It’s no secret that I love a bit of industrial furniture but there is something about these chairs that I particularly like. Is it the way the back curves round to support you? Or the pleasing mix of wood and iron? I’m not entirely sure but I do now that I would happily sit them…

Industrial Meccano Furniture

What about this then? Do you know what it is? Yes it really is. Funiture.Made.From.Meccano. It’s so exciting I can’t believe it hasn’t existed before now. Based on the popular children’s toy sets, the pieces have been enlarged and can be put together in a range of ways to create tables, consoles, desks and chairs.…

Industrial Mirror Shelf

Oh how we all love to mock Anthropologie. Yes we do, don’t pretend you’re above such things. And for those of you who don’t remember take a look at this post from a few weeks back. Make sure you click the link to LG Tumbledown. But, as I admitted before, I still browse to see…

The House that George Clooney Bought?

1412958312973_wps_93_exteriors_and_interiors_o

A couple of weeks ago (well shortly after that wedding in Venice in fact) I started noticing that the blog was getting numerous referrals from estate agencies saying that George Clooney and his new wife Amal had bought a house in Berkshire. I couldn’t quite understand why it was pinging back to me, so I…
