It’s the one thing we all want more of. And yet it’s also true that the more storage we have the more we expand to fill the space. I can think of at least three large cupboards in my house which are filled with junk and stuff I/we no longer need (children’s books, old cuddly…

It’s been a while since I shared a proper Object of Design as I try, for the most part, to make this blog about advice and inspiration rather than straightforward shopping, but today I want to show you something that I really just think is brilliant. Before Christmas I was sent a set of Hokan…

I hate filing. I really do. I will go to quite extraordinary lengths to avoid doing it, although my excuse is that I can usually find whichever document I need from the relevant pile of waiting-to-be-filed quite fast. It’s when I try and file it and get bored halfway through that the trouble starts. I…

Now I don’t know if my magazine habit is a particularly bad one. I may, in fact, be no better or worse than you. I mean I have a large coffee table, which, although it is mainly used as a repository for coffee table books (part of the job description) and glasses of wine (an…

Now these are fun. Coat racks in the shape of city skylines. There are around 40 to choose from, although before you get too excited, they’re designed by Michael Rosing for German company Radius Design, so we’re talking about 32 German cities and some others. But the others are a good selection of the big…

Hello everyone, it’s great to be back! I hope you’ve all had a good summer. From the look of things you didn’t miss me too much as the blog has had a record-breaking month in my absence so I’m going to assume that you enjoyed revisiting those old posts and were re-inspired. Today I wanted…

How To Plan The Perfect Kitchen

At first it might seem overwhelming trying to plan the perfect kitchen, but the chances are you’ve already worked out what’s annoying you about your current one, so you might as well use that as a starting point and begin by thinking how you could put those issues to rights. Sometimes it’s simply a question…

The Perfect Storage Desk

8th July 2014
AD / May contain affiliate links

As much as I love the idea of a simple trestle table or industrial trolley for a desk, I also know that I’m an inveterate hoarder. A creator of piles. A stuffer of drawers. As often as I tell you that you can operate with nothing but a simple table – yes I do work…

Freestanding Kitchen Unit

Now I’m not normally one for painted furniture and the retro look but I would totally make an exception for this. Along with wanting a black kitchen (something it turns out that many of you desire too) I would like to have only freestanding units. It’s hideously impractical I know. I have enough trouble retrieving…
