Now this is a good place for that Christmas shopping… Look what I have found. This new online store, which has only just opened, has a great collection of eclectic and funky stuff which, not only do I love, but (and this is important) I haven’t seen all over everywhere else. Coral and Bone is…

Reclaimed Tiles from Bert and May

vintage cement tiles

I love patterned tiles and reclaimed and vintage are among the best. Now, obviously the tile you choose can be dictated by how many are in stock and how big an area you need to tile but, having said that, there is a certain vogue for patchwork tiles at the moment so they don’t necessarily…

Which, incidentally, I would totally put into a contemporary Ikea kitchen. I don’t know why I’m saying “would” since I have done just that but…

Objects of Design #116: Vintage Chest of Drawers

vintage chest of drawers

Sometimes it’s just about changing one small thing to create a new thing that looks totally fresh. Take this chest of drawers. In the original brown wood, it would simply have looked old fashioned. Painted in the current fashion for pale greys or distressed whites it would have taken on a shabby chic appearance. But…

Mad About . . . Lampshades

With that in mind, Mad About The House brings you lampshades. Not just for ceilings but for tables and tasklights too.   RACHEL POWELL VENEER SHADES…
