home: trend [ neon lights ]
Lighting is a very important part of your home as we all know. Choosing various designs and styles creates individually in each room. This year sees more and more neon in stores.
The new type of neon we are seeing is not as it used to be with glass tubing and gas, nowadays it’s much more safe and durable with acrylic.
Of course the original neon lights are still available, and if you are looking for a vintage piece, or just want an experience then we recommend a trip to
God’s Own Junkyard in London.

home: nice price [ ceiling lamp ]
If you are looking for an Industrial look but on a budget then be sure to head to
IKEA. Known for its well priced Scandi style, it certainly doesn’t disapoint in the lighting department.

FOTO range. A simple, classic design in a choice of colours and only £19
home: made [ beaded chandeliers ]
Beaded chandeliers have become extremely popular recently, as lighting choices increase and become more accessible.
Unfortunately these chandeliers can be quiet expensive, so why not try making your own. There are various designs to choose from and it won’t cost a fortune.
We have found some tutorials to guide you.
home: favourite thing [ straw lamp shades ]
Morocco is most definitely influencing our homeware choices this year and with inspirational images all over Instagram and Pinterest it’s time to grab yourself a piece if the action.
We spotted these gorgeous handmade straw lamp shades at
rockettstgeorge.co.uk and think they will make the perfect addition to any home.
Available in natural and black [ from £30 ]
home: featured [ BHS ]
Another long established brand,
British Home Stores [ BHS ] which already disappeared from our high street, is now sadly also disappearing from online too.
The brand had decided to maintain an online presence with their clothing, homeware and infamous lighting, but now, after not long at all,they are pulling the plug on that too.
Just another all to familiar sign of the British retail industry losing pace and saying goodbye to another long standing retailer.
Head over to their
website now and explore their closing down sale. It’s a good time to get some great bargain homewares at up to 50% off.

Love the strong design of this
BHS Hol Pendant Light with its linear structure and bold black and white colouring.
Available now from
BHS at the reduced price of £108 as part of their closing down sale.
It seems high street favourite that closed down from physical stores is now also closing online.
home: favourite thing [ floor lamp ]
A little overwhelmed by the beautiful design of the ‘
Luna‘ light by J By Jasper Conran, available from Debenhams.
It’s midcentury style, concrete and metallic – a perfect addition to the modern midcentury Home.
This floor lamp from The Collection is a great option for lighting up modern desk and bedside spaces.
