home: found this [ lamp ]
Found this beautiful sculptural metal lamp in the Zara Home sale. Originally £119.99 now £69.99.
It has simple linear metal work with a natural tone cylinder shade. Elegant, minimal and beautiful.
Head to the Zara Home sale now to explore their homeware, lighting and furniture reductions.
home: trend [ blue ]
This year we have already seen an array of gorgeous colour entering our homes including, pinks, peaches and greens. One that hasn’t had its moment… until now, is blue.
Often seen as a cold colour or one that is associated with seaside styled rooms, blue works really well as a background or accent colour to other shades, creating a modern welcoming space.
We are seeing blue homeware all over, including lighting, sofas & armchairs and furniture.
For a dark moody room go dark blue on the walls with furniture in woods and add metalic accents for a glam feel [ why not include some punchy pink to add interest ]. If your thing is lighter and brighter, electric & royal blue look great against a white background.
Whatever your preferred shade, get on board with blue and give it a go!

home: made [ Jesmonite class ]
In case you missed out last time, we’ve spotted another chance to catch the great ‘working with Jesmonite’ workshop with the London Craft Club.
There’s one tonight but there’s another on July 3rd!
Get ready to meet your new favourite material, Jesmonite. What is Jesmonite I hear you ask? Well it’s a cross between concrete and resin, that can be coloured and used to create awesome effects like terrazzo and marbling. Intrigued? Then read on…
In this introduction to working with Jesmonite you will learn all about this amazing material from our expert Haidee. She will discuss different applications for Jesmonite, and tell you about the different effects you can achieve. Then you’ll make a mould for your trinket dish – choose from a triangle, diamond, or hexagonal shape for your final piece.
Haidee will then show you how to mix your Jesmonite, how to colour it, and you will be able to cast your very own geometric trinket dish! It’s such an amazing material to work with, we know you are going to want to go home and make more pieces for everyone you know! You’ll leave with a finished Jesmonite trinket dish, plus all the knowledge and skills needed to make lots more.
home: nice price [ chair ]
This week we came across this cool woven chair from Ikea, and we think it’s a great price. At only £90 this rattan armchair would look great in a bedroom or additional chair in a living room.
Because it’s light weight it’s easy to move around, so why not use it outdoors during the day.
