I’ve looked at all sorts for a focal light for the garden studio.  The obvious choice was something large and rustic, like these amazing Moroccan shades.



Or embrace the macrame.



This one from IKEA is lush.



The final choice was a step away from obvious, a return to vintage and celebrates the clean lines of the fifties.

Found on ebay, this understated beauty catches the eye without dominating the small space, and its age injects soul and timelessness.


Decision, tick. Next one…

The crittall glass people arrived here yesterday and the only glass they left is the sort related to the Emperor’s new clothes:  It didn’t fit through the front door…one centimetre out, so it’s been returned to the factory. Apparently the main frame was supposed to be designed in two parts but it wasn’t. Their bad.  But it leaves me to explain the situation to Building Control and delay our final sign off again..there’s always something.


I’m distracting the frustration with a search for the perfect table lamp..something utterly ugly and totally wonderful.c1faafcee2d8e6fabebf2afe1a7f1a0d ca750609a3202fcae0dd5491ac31fd7c db8d490e7782fb03272aa6fc8f72ed47

They give such bones to a room..an intriguing combination of height, light and ambience.


It’s a ploy that’s working…
