Such a beautiful floor lamp, and such a great discount. For a great new feature in the home, invest in the midcentury styled Milton floor lamp from Heals.

home: event [ Home Futures ]
Still time to catch this great exhibition at the Design Museum. ‘Home Futures’ runs until March.
Explore today’s home through the prism of yesterday’s imagination. Are we living in the way that pioneering architects and designers throughout the 20th century predicted, or has our idea of home proved resistant to real change?
home: found this [ art ]
The easiest way to update your home for the New Year is too use art, bringing colour and pattern in a subtle way.
Urban Outfitters currently have a fab range of new art prints featuring retro images and strong graphic styles.
Starting from £29 these framed prints are worth checking out.
home: trend [ wall decor ]
Continuing in 2019, is the love for alternative wall art.
Not framed work, not prints, not original paintings – but creative visual pieces with colour and texture and a unique feeling that you might have picked it up at a craft fair, a market whilst travelling the world or been handed it down through the family.
Shop at Anthropologie or Urban Outfitters for a gorgeous range of options but also online small designer market places like Trouva and Etsy.
Keep eyes pealed at car boot sales, charity shops and vintage markets as this is where the real gems can be found with the most appealing prices.
