Happy Friday!

Wow this week has been a manic one, I'm looking forward to taking it easy this weekend hanging out in Crystal Palace, looking around vintage shops and eating nice food. There's a whole Friday to get through before that though, so here's a cool and quirky house to stare at for 10 minutes and make… Continue reading Happy Friday!

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

I love its nod to mid century but the design… Continue reading Oliver Hrubiak Design

New York I love you

There are many reasons why I would love to live in New York. MoMA, cool buildings, Central Park... but most of all the shops. Every website I find myself drooling over lately is American, with stores in NY. I live in London, so I can't buy these gorgeous items without the shipping costing more than… Continue reading New York I love you

Sitting Pretty

Out of all my furniture loves, I love chairs the most. Especially mid century ones - I could spend a lifetime searching Ebay for an Eames Rocker that I can afford. But you just never know when and where you might get lucky, so I have a wish list of the top 6 iconic chairs… Continue reading Sitting Pretty
