Website Wishlist – The Letteroom……….

I don’t think I’m the only one obsessed by letters at the moment.  They are perfect for adding personality and individuality to a room.  So I was very excited to find The Letteroom website where absolutely everything is about letters!

Here are my five favourites from the Decorative Home section…

What would you write on your wall?

I Spy – New Lighting Designs……….

At this time of year, with thoughts turning to cosy nights in, how about these gorgeous lamps from Kinzig Design to turn dark corners into glamorous boudoirs?

Karen and Susan Kinzig are sisters in law and design partners and they create sexy table and floor lamps, featuring hand-blown glass, with handmade silk shades in their signature Modernist and Art Deco style shapes.

Or how about creating some drama to welcome your visitors this winter?

Emerging Designer Stacy Harshman from Andarina Designs was inspired by antique swizzle sticks to create these stunning pendents.  Can’t you just see them hanging in a double height entrance hall? 

Let there be light!

 

Designer Envy – Katherine Pooley……….

Katherine Pooley’s portfolio is diverse and simply stunning. 

From London penthouses, to Scottish castles, to  airy Thai houses, to Colorado lodges. Katherine has lived in five countries and travelled to over 200 and the influence of all of these different cultures is evident in her designs.  Truly beautiful.

A Week in France……….

Well, almost a week. 

Five days of relaxation in rural France.  Crisp, sunny, autumn days and a cosy, chilly nights.

Plenty of hearty meals, mellow red wine and mature cheese.

Days exploring pretty villages with oh, so many blue shutters and the remains of the summer blooms.

And yet more days exploring the chateaux and turrets and medieval fortresses and then…

in a pretty, leafy town square, we spotted this little interiors shop with three storey apartment above.  And it was FOR SALE!!

*Sigh*
