Surfboards ...

I have never been surfing, but it looks quite cool and I wouldn't mind trying it out. But what is also quite cool is the design of some of them ... so here a collection of something slightly different:

Quite like the marble painted surfboards by Haydenshapes and Alexander Wang on the last two pictures ...
Have a good start of the week. xx

I only managed Decorex and a quick visit to the Chelsea Harbour Design Center for this years design week, due to before mentioned events ... Here now a few bits that caught my eye at Decorex:

Chandelier by Cox London (makers of bespoke pieces of furniture and lighting)

Beautiful lighting by Bert Frank Ltd. (lighting with an industrial/mid-century touch)

An impressive Murano chandelier by iDogi.

Pendant lights by Michael Ruh at Design Nation.

Zinc Pendants at A Place in the Garden.

A beautiful table by Sentient Furniture Inc

And, my favourite find: BARN IN THE CITY, an Amsterdam based company who create furniture and wall panels using 19th Century reclaimed barn wood and very unique metal and iced finishes. 

Strolling through the exhibition, I also said hello to Fabrice at Redloh House of Fabrics and writer of A-Gent of Style and had a good look at various of the 'in the making' feature areas, where skilled craftsmen demonstrated hand weaving, making of decorative a plasterwork and hand blocking wallpaper. All in all a very enjoyable visit. xx

Wallpaper for today

Is there a new trend of wildly patterned wallpaper?
I came across quite a few of these lately, slightly retro but quite a cool look.

I love the blue and green room on the third picture, so many different patterns, but I think it works well. And more pattern in bathroom tiling as well! 
Off to Decorex later - design week (and I missed most of it due to my birthday) - so let's get some inspirations and ideas! Enjoy your day. xx

Shall we ...

... tiptoe around this week and throw some sparkle? ...

I certainly feel like this after a fabulous weekend! Amazing surprise party organised by my husband! (And the help of a few dear friends) So, ... I'll start the week slowly, I think!! Wishing you all a glittery start to the week, too. xx

Today ...

... is a big day and I think this is how it goes ...

I might get some ballons and a cake ....

There is quite certainly a party ...

Only I have no idea what is happening ...

But I got the dress and the shoes ...

... so let's go! (Just hopefully not to parachute, bungee jump, sing karaoke or tame some tigers!)

Mix and match?

... more mix here, that's for sure, but all lovely living rooms.
If you like a little bit of colour, that is ...

Enjoy your Friday! xx

Come on in ...

 I love a nice drawer chest or shelf in the hallway, a nice welcome, a beautiful arrangement, ...
a few below, a bit minimalistic and a bit more some of them.

And no, as hard as I try, mine never looks like that (maybe for 5 minutes in the day!). Once the kids come and throw their shoes, bags, keys, phones and other bits around, that's that! ... it is one of this never-ending tasks, you try every day again! xx

Regent's Canal

Living nearly 20 years in London and there are still corners nearby that we have never been to... So, yesterday we took a walk along Regent's Canal towards Maida Vale. A few snapshots below ... starting from Primrose Hill ...

The walk towards Camden and Islington will be for another weekend soon. Have a good start to the week. xx
