Everybody loves a little festive lighting. These great STRALA snow flake lights from IKEA are perfect and only £2.50. We love this creative idea to give them an extra feature with baubles and ribbons hung from the wire, to create a modern festive garland.

AnotherHomeBlog favourite, Labour & Wait have this beauty of a light shade. Both industrial style and sparkly, we love this enamel lampshade with the white speckled pattern at just £58. 

They say; 

This enamel lampshade is especially made for us by Riess in Austria, and is a replica of the vintage shades which were fitted in our first shop. This classic design was originally used in workshops, garages and industrial buildings.

We love this take on a traditional architect task lamp, taking the form of a larger floor lamp.  The matt black finish will work with any room and perfect for bringing drama and a statement to a space.

From Danish brand Moebe this floor lamp is adjustable at three points, so you can create the light you want, and angle it to suit your needs.

home: trend [ curve appeal ] 

Give your home ‘curve appeal’, soften those edges, bring circular and rounded patterns and silhouettes into an interior to create a calm feel and modern design look.

Introduce the circular design in fabrics, wallpapers and other patterned soft furnishings, or try curves in furniture – rounded tables, soft cornered shelving, and moulded smooth plastic furniture. 

Look for inspiration from midcentury interiors and 1960s styling but give it a modern look by minimising too many bright colours and not clashing too many patterns. Furniture in plywood and plastic are always strong for curved silhouettes. Head to print stores like King & Mcgaw and Seventy Tree for extra details in your styling by introducing prints with circle patterns and colours that match your scheme.
