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 … More Midcentury inspired lighting on the high street

We’re in!

We have moved into our new home, and it’s fantastic to have space at last! Now our little boy is super active, to have room for him to run around and play is really special.

Friday house envy

Happy Friday! To help us through the last day of the working week, here’s an amazing midcentury gem to swoon over. This house  in Wales looks as it would have done when it was built in 1966. I love the coloured bathroom suites (I am convinced these will come back into fashion soon!), built in storage … More Friday house envy
