This 1960s architect-designed modernist property in Trollasen, Sweden, is so amazing I had to share it. It's for sale via fastighetsbyran. Built in 1961, it's retained some lovely details and has been sympathetically updated where needed. All images courtesy of http://www.fastighetsbyran.se/
1960’s house envy
Wow what a beautiful house. It's for sale for the first time since it was built in 1967, and the owners have carefully maintained it's original details. Designed by the renowned architect Peter Aldington, the four-bedroom property was given a rare Grade II listing by English Heritage in recognition of its outstanding design. It's in South… Continue reading 1960’s house envy
Habitat A/W 2013
Habitat's collection for the new season has some bold, eye catching pieces. My favourite is this Sura chair, made from black rattan wrapped around a steel-wire frame - it looks very retro but with a modern spin. I may have to save those pennies though as they are £300 and up - ouch. There… Continue reading Habitat A/W 2013
Penguin Library Wallpaper
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.

Urban Outfitters Furniture
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… Continue reading Urban Outfitters Furniture
Midcentury house envy!
This South East London house was designed in the late 1960s by the architect Royston Summers. It is available to rent (if you have a spare £3,900 per month!) I love the full height windows, the use of wood and the massive rooms. Amazing! All images The Modern House
I went to check out 100% design at Earls Court in London on Friday, and came away feeling inspired and excited about British design right now. One of the stands at the show that impressed me the most was James UK, a contemporary British furniture brand launched in 2006. They produce lovely vintage inspired furniture and interior… Continue reading James UK
Rachel Powell Wallpaper
I love this screen printed wallpaper by UK based Rachel Powell. It's retro and fun - there are also cool tea towels using the bird motif. You can check out her site here.
New G Plan Vintage Collection
Most of us know G Plan as a range of furniture produced in Britain in the 50s and 60s (I have four amazing G Plan dining chairs which were my Mum and Dads). Now they have launched the G Plan Vintage collection - a range of sofas and chairs inspired by those classic designs, in collaboration with… Continue reading New G Plan Vintage Collection
