Customise Your Ikea Kitchen

custom made grey doors for an ikea kitchen from superfront

We’re all familiar with the concept of the Ikea hack, a design phenomenon that is even supported by the store itself, but until now it has been mainly about DIY versions. I know people who have repainted their doors, or even had new ones made and spray painted. I bought the cupboards but sourced my…

Indigo Home Accessories

Indigo Living Room 2

So I think it’s official. Navy is the new grey. I can’t quite believe I’m saying that – I shall have to dye the cat – but navy blue, or indigo seems to be the colour for Autumn Winter 2014. I wrote last year that it was billed as a trend, but these things take…

Copper and Brass From H&M

black walls and copper candlesticks

Sometimes you just see a collection of photographs and they’re so gorgeous you have to share them. These are from the new collection at H&M Home which is either in store or coming very soon so I thought you might like to see them again. A black wall with a splash of copper or brass against it…

Garden Hammock

The end of July and the Mad House is going to take a little break for a month. There will still be posts published every day but they will be old and new favourites, revised and updated. In the meantime here’s a gorgeous hammock and I wish you all a lovely August. It’s from Occa…

The new collection from Broste

navy and gold

Broste Copenhagen is one of my favourite Scandinavian brands and this images from the new Autumn/Winter 2014 collection shows you why. But it’s not just about the products, the imagery is pretty gorgeous too and we do love a good photograph here at the Mad House.   Lots of navy, lots of grey and some…

Mad About… Industrial Chic

14.06.04_Heals_Abacus_A_032

The industrial look has been with us for a while now but I have been saying (to anyone who will listen) that I thought the next stage would be a more refined and elegant version of this look. It’s what I have called Industrial Glamour. And look, this is exactly what Heals has done with…

Brass Wall Clock

Sometimes it’s all about the simple things and this brass wall clock is one of those things. Measuring 30cm across its gold frame and plain white face with those elegant black numbers is perfect for any type of interior. It does its job simply and with no fuss. I sometimes wish I could say the…

Geometric Navy Blue Leather Rug

Now this is rather a beauty combining two of my favourite things; leather and navy blue. Mix those with a little hemp to weave it all together and you end up with this fabulous runner that would be perfect for the hall or landing. It measures 70cm by 200cm, which is a pretty good size…

Folding Shelving by Ambivalenz

folding shelves by ambivalenz

Flexible furniture that doesn’t take up much space or can be easily stored is increasingly important as we live in ever smaller spaces. Or buy more stuff. Either way, there has never been more of a need for clever items that can adapt to our busy lives. Take at look at these shelves. They’re made…

Still Mad About Grey Homewares

Grey Scale Bedroom

The new season look books are flooding in at the moment and it’s a real pleasure to see so many of them that aren’t just about showcasing the products but have great photography so they can provide real inspiration for our own homes. Recently I showed you the new collection from Sainsbury’s with all that…
