home: favourite thing [ ceiling shade ]
We have a bit of an obsession with lighting, and why wouldn’t we when there is such a great choice available online and in stores. Habitat has just launched a load of new arrivals including this Quad light and we think it’s pretty cool. The striking architectural design will work best in a modern monochrome inspired living room, kitchen or office.

home: favourite thing [ outdoor rug ]
Summer is upon us and to enjoy the sun we can look to style and design our outdoor living spaces are as exciting as our indoor spaces.
Outdoor rugs are a great way to make an area stylish and attractive with colour, pattern or both. Tie in to chair cushion (try IKEA ) and throw colours; and style an area with as much attention to trend as any room. Plus add in some great garden accessories available across the high street – pots, ornaments, lamps and tables.
To start the area design, find a great outdoor rug. We love this monochrome patterned rug from CuckooLand, which ties in perfectly to current trends. Style with either dashes of bright mustard or teal, or compliment with blush pink, metallic and greys.
home: favourite thing [ light ]
We have always been a fan of Rockett St George lighting, with their vast range of pendants, lamps and bulbs. Always bringing something new and exciting for us to yearn over. This week our pick is this striking starburst pendant light. With its retro appearance and brass finish it is sure to make a statement in any room.
Available for pre – order [ £475 ]
home: favourite thing [ vintage sign letters ]
Letter accessories are a great way to personalise your home with new and old type styles, available online, in stores and from markets. It’s a unique alternative to home accessories – looking good wall mounted, hanging on doors or standing on sideboards or shelving.
We love these ‘individual black letters and numbers screened onto clear perspex with geometric detailing‘ sourced by Respect Your Elders and sold through Pedlars World (online) – £12 each.
Explore vintage shops and antiques fairs to find discarded vintage fonts previously used for signage in pubs, shops, and other businesses. Ebay is also a great source for these.
Spell out motivational words, names or statements or just choose single initials.
home: favourite thing [ Frida prints ]
Every now and again we come across a collection of prints which grab our attention and we fall in love with. Tin Design has managed to do just this with their Frida Kahlo range of prints.
The combination of the abstract geometric style and vibrant colours is a definite winner. Even if you are not familiar with Frida Kahlo, these prints are gorgeous enough to bring joy to any room.
Available in 4 designs [ A3 or A2 size ] they are £19.95 or £29.95 each, which is a fantastic price for such detailed and striking work.
