What a unique mix of vintage and vintage-style goods for the home under one roof at The Light Keeper.

Yes, there’s lighting as the core of this beautiful brand, but explore the website or store to find the rest of the curated range of homewares and products that sit along side the vintage and new lighting.

They say;

The Light Keeper was established in 2016 after working for over 30 years in industry ranging from power generation and distribution to corporate infrastructure projects.

I’ve always had a love of lighting and especially a love of vintage and specialty designed illuminations. The Light Keeper now offers some inexpensive but stylish classics to rare and desirable collectables.

These rainy summer days need brightening up, a splash of colour knit for keeping warm with outdoor entertainment.

The ‘Alexis’ cotton throw by Sage & Clare, available from Wanderlust Wares is perfect for that colour pop.

£129

They say;

We just love it when a product captures our exact feels! And the Alexis Knit Blanket says it all, really, thanks to its ‘Whole Lotta Love’ typography.

It is playful and pretty in one, its retro-inspired print bringing all the good vibes. The fun is continued through bold Lilac and Scarlet accent colours, while fringe detail on all sides is another considered touch.

Presented in textural cotton jacquard, it also delivers on the practicality.

The tonal blended finished of this beautiful Etna planter by Ruut Home, available from Fy!, is stunning and would make a practical, stylish home for one of your indoor plants,

They say:

The simple design and unique patterns of our planters make them the perfect companion for your plants! Hand poured using Jesmonite, each plant pot comes with a matching saucer and drainage hole, meaning there’s even less chance of drowning your plants.

Each planter is finished by hand using a sealant, which helps to protect from stains, but also gives each pot a satin finish.
