CP Hart Moodboard

The-Field-Starck-1024

Now that we’ve all got so used to Pinterest it seems that many of us are incapable of planning a room unless we have lots of gorgeous interiors pictures to gaze at first to get us in the mood. That’s definitely not a bad thing, by the way, but it does mean that many of…

Paper Pendant Light

It occurred to me last night as I strolled upstairs to the newly installed staircase leading to the loft, that since part of the ceiling has been removed to make way for said stairs there is no longer a landing light outside our bedroom. We used to have the giant Ikea Dandelion light which cast…

My Warehouse Home Collection

Warehouse Home capsule collection main

As the world of blogging gets ever more crowded, some of us have had to think of ways to earn a living that aren’t just about sticking big banner adverts all over our carefully designed sites. After all, there’s nothing worse than spending your days writing about good design and then sticking a dirty great…

Greetings to you all and, if this is your first visit, welcome to our regular weekly dose of interiors inspiration in the form of 10 Beautiful Rooms. First up is this fabulous kitchen/dining/living space. Continuing my new found love of green, I was drawn to this image by the olive Eames chairs which are just…

Corian Basins

If you’re looking for a new basin then how about one of these. I first saw the one above when a twitter friend who is an interior designer showed it to me. She said she was installing it in a client’s house and I was rather vexed when I saw it as we already have…

Green Velvet Sofa

Scott sofa £999 and Branko rug £399

A few weeks ago I wrote about how I was starting to fall for the colour green. You may remember this green velvet armchair that had caught my eye. Then suddenly I saw this sofa and BOOM. I LOVE THIS SOFA. If I hadn’t just dropped a squillion pounds on a new loft I would…

The Househunter 12/6/15

marble island

First off to South Tottenham in north London. I’m showing you this because a) it’s a pretty house and, at £550,000 for three bedrooms is what passes for affordable in London these days but also b) it’s on with Brickworks, a fledgling new estate agency that has a good heart. First up fees: 1 per…

Design Your Own Table

Now this is a good idea. How many times have you seen a table that you nearly like but not quite? Or one that’s a tad too big? Or small. Or it’s the perfect size but you hate the legs. A new company called Little Snug, whose owners had exactly the same problem, have just…

Industrial Wall Lights by Jielde

Much excitement in The Mad House this week as the lights have arrived for the loft. I mean there isn’t actually a wall to put them on yet but hey, that’s a detail. They are the Jielde lamps and it’s the French version of an Anglepoise. But rounder and curvier and, if it doesn’t sound…
