home: found this [ pendant light ]
We spend a lot of time looking through websites and searching for new items to share, and today we feature a little gem from made.com. This marble pendant light is super cute and perfect for a kitchen or dining room.
The simple design looks great and comes in a choice of three colours. It would also work as a cluster rather than individual pendants.

It’s beautiful, simple, elegant and modern even though its influences are historic and set within art from past decades – this line art trend is easy to bring into a home and it’s great to seek out unique pieces that introduce this trend into a room.

home: trend [ fringed ]
This season, if it’s not fringed it’s not worth taking about. We are seeing it everywhere and all secretly love it.
This trend crosses over from playful to sophisticated very easily. Fringed cushions and wall hangings bring a statement to any room and can be playful with colour and texture. You also have chandeliers and table lamps oozing style with touches of gold and brass.
A couple of stores embracing the fringe effect is anthropologie.com and rockettstgeorge.co.uk. Full of gorgeous lighting, soft furnishings and baskets.
The key with fringing is to not over do it. Whether Scandi, Mid century or if you love Art Deco choose one stand out piece to anchor the room. If your style is more bohemian, nomadic then go full on fringing and tassels on cushions and throws.
