The Groove Lamp

Groove Lamp_£195 & Leather Journal_£28.50_stuffofdreams.com

The Groove lamp is named for obvious reasons but in addition to the painted grooves, you can also turn the base so that you can line up the stripes if you want. Or, in my case, not. The other neat trick is that you can have the stripes painted in any Farrow and Ball colour…

10 Beautiful Rooms

This week has been all about kitchens for me. Two clients for Mad About Your House needing help with the most important room in the house. One wanting to start again, one need a refresh and a tweak after we had reconfigured the den next door. The latter wanted to take down a temporary wall between…

Postmodern Pastel Plates

sottsass ceramics from darkroom

We’ve know each other quite a while now haven’t we? And it’s fair to say that I’m not a great one for pattern. Unless it’s mainly monochrome. And really quite geometric. And really not too bright and ooh look at these… They’re part of a range called Stolen From De Stijl by Darkroom London, and…

New Shop: Atkin & Thyme

Nothing I like more than a virtual browse around a new shop on a Saturday morning. Coffee in one hand, mouse in the other (a plate of toast and marmalade nearby) and not forgetting slippers firmly on feet because it is, probably, raining out there. And if it isn’t it’s definitely cold. So it’s virtual…

Morning people! So it’s Fri-will-I-win-the-lottery-this-week-no-never-mind-I-can-still-dream-day. Otherwise known as; if I had a few million quid would buy one of these? So first up we’re off to east London to poke around this rather fabulous warehouse conversion. This two bedroom (yes just two. Yes I know that’s ridiculous. It’s London) apartment is on the market for…

Hand Held Vessels by Rhian Malin

The trend for bespoke started a few years ago now but it shows no sign of slowing down. Having said that it needs to be a little more sophisticated than just sticking our initials (or those of our children) on everything. These gorgeous blue and white cups are just the perfect way to take this…

Brass Capped Decanter

Oh I know I know it’s like a dirty little secret but I can’t help it. I have to look. When a couple of weeks have gone by and I think there might have been a new delivery I have to peek to see what’s new. And there is always something new. And byootiful. And…

A Moroccan Scandinavian mash up

Tarjotinjalat

I mentioned yesterday my new discovery Zoco Home, the Finnish company specialising in Moroccan design, and today I thought I would show you a few of the things they actually stock. And yes I have checked, they ship worldwide although US costs are added at checkout and will be more than the €10 (for up to…

10 Beautiful Rooms

Happy Monday! This picture really caught my eye when I saw it last week. I know it’s been a bit photoshopped for effect, but the ideas still really work for me. I’ve written before about painting a pattern or a rug onto the floor and I love the polished plaster or concrete walls shown here. Throw…
