home: favourite thing [ chair ]
This beautiful, design-classic brass wire chair £325 from Rose & Grey is incredible.
An amazing investment as a set round a dining table or use a single as a office chair to make a study extra stylish.
We’d love it against an interior using dark navy or green walls with marble surfaces and some dashes of blush pink in accessories. It would also work well with an industrial trend inspired interior.
Can be used with a sheep skin cushion (sold separately) as shown or other seating pad.

We’re really excited to have Forget-me-knots hosting an extra special Macramé workshop at Bob’s Café in Muswell Hill.

You will also be able to enjoy a delicious brunch dish and a hot drink while you knot, which are included in the ticket price of £30.
This workshop is suitable for absolute beginners, and will run for approximately three hours. For more details and to book your spot, contact us at email@example.com

home: found this [ IKEA x B. Akerlund ]
IKEA has always been a company to push design ideas and bring fun into our homes. A new collection designed with fashion stylist Bea Akerlund may just be their boldest yet, where a heavy gothic vibe meets Alice in Wonderland.
Omedelbar is a limited edition collection launching in March and is expected to be a hit. The collection consists of vases, accessories, furniture and soft furnishings in bold black, red and gold.
Look out for top hat and boot vases, a crown bowl, lip shaped cushion and a giant pocket watch wall clock.
We can’t wait to see it in the flesh.

home: made [ punch rug art ]
We spotted this gorgeous DIY project on fallfordiy.com and it’s pretty simple to achieve. These punch rug art works can be hung on the wall or lent on a shelf, either way they look great and will bring interest to a room [ kids & adults ].
The shopping list for this tutorial is quite small – embroidery hoop, yarn, hessian fabric and a punch rug needle – and it is for beginners, so we can all give it a go.
home: nice price [ ceiling light ]
The styling, the curves, the nod to mid century – the incredible Dexter Copper Sputnik Ceiling Pendant £143.20 (reduced in the sale from £179.00) from Marks & Spencer is a must buy. It’s a perfect designer-look retro light fitting to make a statement in any room.
We found this reduced beauty, courtesy of the great AMotherEdits blog. Mostly about gorgeous fashion but follow her on Instagram to see the amazing renovations she’s been doing to her London home.
