Period Inspiration: Netflix’s ‘Anne With An E’

There’s nothing that states ‘required viewing’ for me than when a new TV series is accompanied by swoon-worthy interiors and new Netflix show ‘Anne with an E’ (a re-boot of the iconic Anne of Green Gables) is a living breathing evocation of everyones favourite modern crafted brands – it’s basically Restoration Hardware meets Farrow and Ball by way […] Read more…

The New Industrial, High Street Hits

I rarely wish that my interior style was other than it is (warm, modern and a little bit luxurious) but recently i’ve been wishing my taste was more industrial. I love the materials and textures used in this trend and how hairpin black metal legs, pale worn wood, eroded steel coupled with hunks of veined marble and delicate orbs of […] Read more…

Inspiring Business: Re-Found Objects

Re-Found Objects  founded by Simon Young and Jenny Vaughan is a business I have watched grow from a small mail order company in rural Northumbria to a much sought after design brand featured regularly in top design magazines, establishing pop-ups in London and over a year-long concession at Liberty. I remember interning at Elle Decoration many […] Read more…

Feeling Partial to Partitions

Above Reclaimed Mahogony Framed Windows from £80, Salvo.co.uk Sometimes I can carry on for blissful weeks without thinking up a design project for my home and then suddenly there’s a murmuring of items related and unrelated which I have been taking stock of over the last few weeks/months/years, they shift around inside my head, the […] Read more…

Midcentury Magazine

Earlier this year I wrote my first piece for the independent publication Midcentury Magazine without actually having ever picked up a copy myself…the issue I worked on went to print this month and earlier this week I opened my mail to find a surprisingly beautiful, compact tome filled with poetic imagery and packed with super […] Read more…

Erie Basin

I’m off to New York in the summer and I’m dying to visit this place – mainly because of its wonderfully Gothic sounding name, but also because of its similarity to a Natural History Museum exhibit – with its cabinets full of glittering ancient objects and furniture that look like archeological artifacts. Erie Basin is […] Read more…

Thé Dansant

Sweet and sometimes surreal tokens from Thé Dansant [meaning Tea Dance] two ‘merry’ Belgian sisters who decided to open up an online-shop together. Sometimes they find vintage objects and other times re-purpose them by adding whimiscal touches with packaging or customisation like hand painted vintage objects and these delightful vintage spoons in glass test-tubes, waiting […] Read more…

How to Successfully buy Vintage Online…

It’s been 3 months now since I gave up my job in TV to work in Interiors. It’s been a slow [subtitle: major understatement] process, shall we say, finding work but an interesting experiment in how to keep yourself from going bonkers with nothing but your own company for entertainment. I’ve never had so much […] Read more…

Rough Luxe

Delicate and industrial springtime offerings for your kitchen from French vintage website Adeodata – from what I gather you can buy anything you see online – which is a listing of all of their findings [which are aplenty!]. I just love the vintage Madeline baking tray, pretty, pretty, and the lovely ceramic crosses for a […] Read more…

Collections

Swedish Photographer and graphic design student Hilda Grahnat has a fondness for all things vintage and typographic. I loved her ‘collection’ series of photographs composed of colour grouped charity shop finds. The lovely thing about vintage pieces are that they always hold a sense of the familiar, and even if you’re not a fan of […] Read more…
