194 N Wall Lamp

More lighting... we don't need a wall lamp, but that doesn't stop me from dreaming about where I'd put this 194 N wall lamp by Gino Sarfatti, if I were ever lucky enough to own one!

AJ Royal Lamp

Love this vintage grey AJ Royal lamp, found at The Modern Warehouse.

Great price too!

New addition to my book collection #10

Spot It! Find the Hidden Creatures is the English translated version of Delphine Chedru's Cherche la petite bĂȘte!

A fun book for little ones to play with and full of wonderful patterns for big ones to look at!

Michael Raedecker

We recently visited the Camden Arts Centre to see an exhibition of paintings by Michael Raedecker. It's well worth the trip.

Pure Style

I'm longing for a more simple environment... too much clutter and not enough time to sort it all out!  I'd like to pass the time at Jane Cumberbatch's serene Pure Style location house in South London.

This week we bought a few bunches of pure white peonies at Colombia Road Flower Market.  They have the most amazing scent.

More glass

This is just the bowl I need to serve up a lovely seasonal rhubarb trifle.

Jamie Oliver has a fine selection of contemporary glassware available via his on line shop Jme. I love the simple and colourful packaging design too.

I love the simple shape of this glass Tonale carafe designed by David Chipperfield.
A steal at £16.00!

Geffrye Museum

After our visit to the V&A Museum of Childhood, we took a trip to one of my favourite London museums, The Geffrye. The museum is set in 18th century almshouses and displays English style sitting rooms from 1600 through to the present day.

The current special exhibition is Ethelburga Tower: At home in a high-rise.  The exhibition is a collection of photographs of the same room in each apartment in the building where the photographer, Mark Cowper, has lived for the past 20 years. Cowper asked his neighbours if he could photograph their living room, just as he found them when he knocked on their door, to capture the differences in light throughout the building... it has ended up being a fascinating record of the way the residents all live differently in the same space.

Museum of Childhood

Deerylou and I recently went to see the Snozzcumbers and Frobscottle exhibition at the V&A Museum of Childhood. It's an exhibition celebrating the wonderful union between the storyteller Roald Dahl and illustrator Quentin Blake.

Everyone has their favourite Roald Dahl book... mine is James and the Giant Peach. What's yours?
