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.

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…

New Sponsor – The French House!

I have always been a fan of the beautiful vintage furniture and accessories warehouse – The French House. Stocking a huge amount of gorgeous 19th century antiques, on trend 20th century design and beautiful curiosities, the main showroom in Parson’s Green is an inspirational place to visit in itself, so I am delighted to introduce […] Read more…

Blast from the past

Oooohhh, coinciding with the V&A’s upcoming exhibition ‘Quilts 1700 – 2010’ the V&A Shop have created a limited edition collection of 18 printed quilting fabrics, which vividly bring to life designs from the quilts on display. The quilts within the exhibition contain examples of British quilts dating from 1700 to the present day – earliest […] Read more…
