Now that is a headboard!

She also makes lovely painterly/sculptural pieces:

Love the simplicity of this room. So simple except for the luxurious Pia Wallén blanket.


Quietly luxurious.

Update- I initially thought this was the £580+ Crux blanket but then realised the crosses are much smaller. Lo and behold, Wallén has released a cotton flannel version at a much more reasonable £146!

Love this place…


I think what my room needs is a hanging planter to bring in the Spring (mid winter cold snap, anyone?).

Now, after a failed attempt to get a gorgeous little fat lava wall bulb on ebay (it arrived cracked. sigh), I kind of gave up for a bit.

Then I saw this shot over at the The Brick House and am back on the troll for something.

Macramé? Hmmm. Something.

I am not sure I can commit to macramé.

Though maybe crazy fluorescent macramé?


Two very different rooms with the same Kaiser Idell 6556 desk lamp…


…and it looks fabulous in both the boho and more gritty industrial.

I have been under the weather lately, but hoping to get back to my lamp restoration madness soon. I really want sort out those lamps I have sitting in the studio pronto, so I can get my own 6556 up and running…I just love the shape!

My love for cozy, vaulted attic rooms lives on…


I am getting back into colour swatching, mainly as a means to pick out the combinations  I am most attracted to!

This next combo is from the EST magazine showcase on interior designer James Huniford’s Hampton’s home which I find quite refreshing.

Not as glaringly white as the images I have been attracted to lately, this home is more traditional in feel and the house is filled with driftwood silver greys, faded sand woods and stormy sea blues.

I really love the drama of the massive ship’s anchor chain in the bedroom:

I also love the mix of all the antique woods – different patinas all thrown in together…

…and the scrappy objects around the house that add texture and keep the space from feeling too sterile. Though you can tell the shots were styled for a North American magazine as it just feels a little too pristine instead of lived in.

Overall, though, the space feels comfy and inviting.
