Soft Glow

One week into our renovation and I can honestly say, “I hate DIY”. I have never been more exhausted, frustrated or close to tears on a daily basis as I have been this past week.

Like a puff of smoke

Oh! How charming is this new collection of floor lamps from Slovenian architects Bevk Perović Arhitekti? They are designed to look like puffs of smoke – what a gentle and sweet idea. I guess the lamps can be viewed two ways, as puffs of smoke that are emitted from the everyday, or akin to the […] Read more…
