Midcentury inspired lighting on the high street

So this is the object of my desire today - George Nelson's Saucer hanging lamp. It's a design classic, and is part of the permanent collection at MOMA, but *sigh* I can't afford it. Also I'd need two to hang in our lounge so I definitely can't stretch to that right now! So I'm on the hunt for… Continue reading Midcentury inspired lighting on the high street

Summer colour

After months of winter grey, the sun is out and London is starting to look more colourful again. I'm starting to think of changing things around in our flat, ready for warmer days (hopefully) ahead. Zara home has some great inspiration for injecting some summer colour into homes, with lovely accessories and details. I especially love the… Continue reading Summer colour
