Earlier this summer I went to the Rothschild & Bickers studio to learn about glass blowing.

It seems we’re having a bit of a lighting theme this week, but I’ve known about this one for a while and had to wait until it was launched before I could show you. It’s from Lane by Post, those clever people who made that pleated pendant light painted in two shades of Little Greene…

After all that controversial celebrity designer stuff the other day, we’re going back in time now to seek out few design classics. A bit of vintage. Every interior should have something vintage.

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…

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…

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…
