How great is this wallpaper? Osborne and Little have produced this colourful wallpaper which is a collage of front covers of the early Penguin paperbacks. A really fun conversational piece for bookworms and fans of vintage design, take a look at Osborne and Little’s site here.
The renovation work in our flat has slowed to a complete stop at the moment, as all things wedding-related seem to be taking up our free weekends. So for now, I will have to make do with looking at other people’s lovely homes. This 1960′s flat is in the Barbican, London. The owners have kept the … Read more
As much as I love Urban Outfitters for their fashion, I usually ignore the small home section full of cute but often pointless stuff to clutter my already full flat. Now though, they’ve extended their range into furniture and other homeware, and from what I can see in the lookbook, it looks pretty cool. It’s … Read more

It’s quite hard to find the sort of vintage utility items in the UK that American shops, like Schoolhouse Electric, do so well. Based in East London, their homeware and stationery products are lovely – simple, functional and a little … Read more

We have finally finished sanding the rest of the floorboards in our flat! The whole flat now has the original floorboards on show, and it’s looking so much better. We even sanded the bathroom floor, to keep a flow of flooring throughout. As the flat isn’t very big, this makes it feel more spacious. The … Read more
