Sphery30 Plywood Lampshade

Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 14.07.00

Converting the loft has been fantastic in so many ways. I love the new office space and have to pinch myself with excitement every time I sit at my desk. There was, however, one casualty; the huge Ikea Makros dandelion light which hung on the top landing which had to go to make way for…

Z1 Cotton Lamp Pendant

black z1 pendant light

It’s taken me a while to make my mind up about these pendant lamps, but suddenly, now that the summer is here, they feel perfect for the long summer days. Designed by Chilean Creative Director Nelson Sepulveda for Ay Illuminate, the Z1 pendant lamp is a celebration of local handicraft crafts and skills from different cultures. The frame is made from bamboo and the whole light…

Brass Shelf and Wall Lights from Schoolhouse Electric

brass shelf from schoolhouseelectric

Have you come across Schoolhouse Electric? They’re an American company which I have kept an eye on for some time but have held off writing about as their site mentions only US delivery and I know that many of you are in Europe and the UK. But I can resist no longer. Not least because…

Brass Chandelier

GALLOTTI-BOLLE_1_Large (1)

At a meeting with a client the other day, we were working our way around her house room by room when we came to the bedroom. A huge light space with a large brass bedstead and a Loaf Bagsie sofa in one corner (I told you it was big), she showed me the bare bulb…

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…

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…

Gold, White or Nickel Pendant

rose gold, chalky white and nickel pendant lights from rose and grey

I don’t know whether I’m more excited at the affordability of these fabulous gold and nickel pendant lights, or the fact that they have been photographed against a navy blue wall. Even the nickel one looks warm and inviting against this soft blue wall and there was I ranting about how chrome and silver were…

Trend: Birdcages

gilded cages

Remember the bowler hat light designed by Jake Phipps that was everywhere for a while. Well, he’s back and this time he’s made the Tweetie light. Sometimes you just need to have a little fun with your interiors and while this is, admittedly, an expensive way to do that, it’s a great light and would…

Cord Cables and Brass Fittings

pink cable light brass fitting

It has taken me months and months but, finally, I have switched the pendant light fittings over to cord cables and brass or bronze fittings instead of that awful white plastic. It’s also a great opportunity to show off the different lights we have in the house. Starting at the top is the lovely Lee…

Large Glass Bottle Floor Lamp

Most glass bottle lamps stand on a table but this is an outsize version that would look great standing on the floor. It comes with this grey linen shade and the whole thing is 97cm tall. The flex that is supplied is black and white striped, but I would be tempted to swap that for…
