home: featured [ Swoon ]
September is almost upon us and everyone seems to get that ‘back to school’ feeling and that feeling for change and something new.
With all that’s ‘New In’ at Swoon there’s plenty to get inspired by and enough gorgeous homeware and furniture to create a whole new look for a room.
Beautiful rich jewel colours, great quality wooden furniture and lots of hints of gold on side tables and lamps to add that metallic hint.
There’s also plenty to be browsed in the clearance department.
home: favourite thing [ Gemini walnut range ]
If you love walnut as a tone of wood for furniture and are fond of midcentury styling then West Elm have a range to fall for.
We love the Gemini furniture range made from sustainable and fair trade walnuts, with its beautiful curved detailing and slim legs.
Walnut is a wood that sits so well with so many colours and has a beautiful warmth.
home: made [ desk ]
Head to themerrythought.com to be inspired to make this fab desk. Using an Ikea drawer unit as a base with the addition of a wooden table top and a pair of legs, you are good to go.
Obviously you will need to have some basic woodwork skills or at least know someone that has to complete this project, but it’s a great one.
We love the use of the drawer unit, it looks like it was meant to be part of the table and more expensive than it would actually be.
home: favourite thing [ industrial drawers ]
Featuring an vintage-style industrial piece in the home makes such a statement. This drawers unit from Tikamoon at £299 is handy, practical and great design.
Like a little piece of Brooklyn … This INDUSTRIEL chest of drawers stores all your everyday objects, clothes, and accessories and keeps them close to hand … Otherwise it can be a handy storage facility for your documents and accessories in a well-organised office.
The beautiful raw, bleached mango top surface speaks of class and sophistication. Meanwhile, the 9 drawers with customisable labels help to keep your space organised.
