A 3D-Printed Lampshade

004_Kayan-3d-printed-lamp-shade-by-Formaliz3d-for-Plumen-lifestyle

Oooh this 3D printing lark is getting more exciting isn’t it. My children are desperate to own a 3D printer and I imagine by the time they are in their twenties it won’t be such an outlandish idea. In the meantime we can sit back and watch the technology improve. Late last week, I was…

&Tradition Industrial Wall Lamp

1846_s

This rather fabulous light was designed by the cool brand Ontwerpduo in 2010 and now forms part of the &tradition collection. I’m thinking it would be perfect for the new loft which will have exposed roof joints, painted white, and an exposed brick wall, also painted white. I’m not sure there will be enough head…

The Househunter 17/4/15

120237635

Following a truly disastrous set of passport photos taken on Monday, this week’s Househunter is dedicated to Abroad. To places that require passports for entry. If I have to look like that for the next 10 years I’m damn well going to get the most out of it. Of course the real tragedy is that…

Elizabeth’s Cabinet

elizabeths-cabinet

Now I’m aware that this one is going to be quite controversial. For example, I won’t be attempting to talk this one into my own house as there’s no way I’d get it past himself (or the two smaller selves come to that) but if I lived on my own I totally would. The other…

Antique Silver Coffee Table

eichholtz silver drum side table

Oh I do love this silver side table. It would totally be the showstopping piece in the room and would look great contrasted with a velvet sofa (check) wooden floors and rugs or any colour (check) and lots of soft lighting (winning again) and, the latest trend, house plants (working on that one). Now, in…

Wooden Peg Board

  I have been hanging back on the peg board trend because I haven’t, until now, found one that I love. But then I did. This is by Swiss-born designer Nikki Kreis, who has worked in New York, Berlin and Sydney but is now based in London.   The natural one at the top is…

10 Beautiful Rooms

Found-on-lifestyleetc.co_.uk_

It’s Monday so it must be time for 10 Beautiful Rooms. We kick off this week with this all white kitchen defined by the touches of black – the grout, the light flexes, the chair legs. Having started off in my own house with an all white kitchen, I suddenly find that this is too…

Pick n Mix Ercol Chairs

FLORRIE + BILL Ercol Dining Chairs Mixed Lifestyle www.florrieandbill.com

These vintage Ercol Goldsmith chairs (don’t you love the high back?) have been fully restored by Amy Cawson, of Florrie + Bill, and spray painted in a selection of gorgeous RAL colours. You can buy a set in the colour mix of your choice for £660 or have just one – for a hallway or…

Directional Wall Light

directional-wall-lamp-brass-white-37657-p

You know me and a directional wall light… I have seen this one a few times and, while I had somehow always assumed that the wall lights in the loft would be black, I’m now coming round to the idea of white ones. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what the room looks…
