Wall-hanging Love

It is a little late for this but... happy New Year everyone. Hope you had a wonderful holiday and I am sorry you are (most likely) back at work today. I feel your pain, but let's try to get through this together...

To kick off the new year I wanted to revel in my love for, and obsession with, a wall hanging I got for Christmas. Walls are something I am still coming to grips with and having things hanging from them is something I find quite challenging. Not a particular lover of a picture wall, or of a lone piece of art in a frame, hanging somewhere awkwardly and alone, I'm never quite sure what to do. The pictures you do chose to hang also say so much about you, or at least they probably should, so I find it can be quite pressured to select something. An insight into my deepest internal struggles there.

Anyway, when I saw this Elkeland wall hanging from Ferm Living I knew it was exactly what I have been looking for...

Made with 100% merino wool in the Danish woodland
 
Over my bed in a sort of dream-catcher-esque vibe

I love the creamy colour against Farrow and Ball's Dimpse and the brass bars pick out the side lamps. What do you think? Stay tuned for a full bedroom renovation reveal coming soon. As a teaser, about 4 months ago it looked like this...

Hero Product 9th December

Trays are becoming somewhat of an addiction for me at the moment and this one is one short click away from being mine. Perfectly festive as Christmas creeps upon us but also super practical all year round. I want it for my dining table to frame a vase I currently have on it, filled with eucalyptus. Sometimes a tray just makes something look like it truly belongs there.

This would also look delightful on a drinks trolley with a gold cocktail shaker and some martini glasses sat decoratively on its wonderfully mirrored surface. Or on a coffee table with a selection of carefully curated small vases and mini succulents. Hell, at £19.99 I'm buying three to make each of these interior dreams a reality...


Available at H&M.

Hero Product 20th October

Today's Hero Product comes courtesy of the lovely people at Marks and Spencer who have pulled out a bit of a corker in the lighting department.

Now I have to be honest, M&S is not the first place I would look for design-led homeware pieces but I have to say, I may have been wrong. This brass chandelier-esque ceiling light is the perfect balance of modernity, glitz and understated cool. It reminds me of the LA interiors I so often fawn over on Pinterest, as is perfectly designed to sit high above some brightly coloured kilim rugs and a marble topped coffee table. Priced at just £79 it is also a total steal... I am buying one for my bedroom post-haste.
