If you are a regular reader of the blog you probably know we had a living room revamp earlier this year. We are really pleased with the end result and it was way much better than expected. The living room is now a really cosy space and we love spending time in it.
The only thing we had missing was a table. We had been looking for a coffee table, or a nest of tables for months. Everything we saw was either too expensive, too big or not really suited for the room. I kept changing my mind about what I wanted -anyone else the same? I guess these days with internet shopping the choices are endless so it’s harder to make a decision
A few weeks ago we came across the Seymour Side Tables from Swoon Editions and decided to go for them. A nest of tables with a glass top and hand-painted frames with an antiqued brass effect.
I was delighted when Homesense invited me to their Christmas Party a few days ago in Birmingham. A pre-festive meet up for a chance to catch up with fellow bloggers, meet new ones and also have a look at Homesense Christmas range, what’s not to like?
The chosen venue was the Lost & Found, a cocktail bar & restaurant in Birmingham’s popular area of Bennett’s Hill. Right in the city centre, just tucked away from the hustle and bustle of New Street, Corporation Street and the Bullring. A beautiful building with a very impressive entrance, as soon as we stepped in, I knew it was going to be a great night. Homesense had “The Bar Behind The Bookcase” area reserved, how cool is that? Yes, an actual bar behind a bookcase. The choice of venue could not have been any better, and it was the perfect location to host a party.
Joules always springs to mind when thinking of quintessentially British brands. Their colourful clothes and accessories are beautiful and their homeware range is quite bold and perfect for the modern home. I was absolutely delighted to receive an invite for the Spring /Summer ’17 press preview in London and could not wait to see what they had in store for next summer.
Technology and the way we work have moved on quite a lot the past few years. I now work from home quite a bit so having a printer in my home office is essential. Both my children are at school and they seem to have endless projects and other bits and pieces that require printing. For many years I’ve had a printer that was very slow and the photo printing quality wasn’t great. Luckily Epson got in touch and asked I wanted to try one of their Epson ET-3600 Ecotank Printers.
Fashion, photography and textiles are three passions of mine so it comes as no surprise that I love books, especially coffee table ones. Coffee table books make great Christmas gifts, especially if you have a fashionista to buy for. They usually have gorgeous, beautifully curated pictures and they look great either on display or on a bookshelf.
Here below I have put together a selection of my favourite ones, so have a read if you are looking for inspiration.
One of the most popular magazines in the world, Vogue, is now 100 years old, so what a better way of celebrating their anniversary than publishing a book celebrating their best moments. Vogue 100: A century of Style revisits the best moments in photography, fashion and beauty. It features iconic designers and photographers that have been influential in the world of fashion in the past 100 years.
