home: favourite thing [ floor lamp ]
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.
Was £299 Now £179 and available in cream or black.
Blending mid-century styling with functionality, the Milton Task Table and Floor Lamp Range are compact enough to sit within any modern interior. The Milton range is designed in Banbury, and crafted from sturdy powder coated steel which is hand-painted to an antique brass finish becoming a solid design statement. The floor lamp is adjustable via a handle, allowing the user to direct the light perfectly over a sofa, or armchair when reading, or left to illuminate a room when at full height.
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.

home: trend [ vanity units ]
Trends have changed a lot across the last decade in bathrooms. No longer are designs so traditional and pieces purely designed for a bathroom.
It’s now about furniture that makes a statement and allows the room to feel more like any other – considered, with thought and more than just a ceramic sink and toilet in a tiled room.
Interiors trends of minimal, maximalist, monochrome, traveller, midcentury, mosaic, herringbone, black – are all trends we see translating into the design of the bathroom.
When it comes to picking the vanity unit it’s about the style and design, the practicality and function, and also now we have a far broader range of furniture to choose from – and even growing in popularity is using furniture pieces that aren’t for a bathroom but converting them to work. Typically midcentury sideboard work incredibly well. The shape lends itself to working well, with good counter area and storage space in the form of draws and/or cupboards.
Consider balance of the size of furniture in the room as bathrooms aren’t often the biggest of rooms. Choose a mirror that suits the style of the unit and is not to over powering in size to dominate the room.
