I am not sure if I should feel very lucky or really upset at the moment. In January, my husband will be moving to Copenhagen for work while I stay in London with the children. We have settled here in London over the last decade, this is where we feel at home, and the mere thought of moving away is just not bearable for me at the moment. Hence, I will let the husband go and see what […]

There is one wall lamp that I have been thinking about for quite some time – actually from the moment on when we bought our current house a few years ago: The Flos 265 wall lamp, designed by Paolo Rizzatto in 1973 which provides directional light by moving an adjustable arm.

I do enjoy those autumn evenings though when I can curl up on the sofa with a chunky woolen blanket drinking tea. […]

Today has been a new day though, the sun was shining down on London and things looked slightly different. Tonight, I have taken our children out for dinner to our favourite restaurant, Sticks’n Sushi, which is always a treat for all […]

A few months ago, as I passed the Poliform showroom at Design Centre Chelsea Harbour, I spotted a little beauty in the window: the MAD chair by Dutch design icon Marcel Wanders. I am a huge fan of design coming from the Netherlands. The Dutch seem to have this natural sense for style which has always impressed me. Without wanting to detract from their great design ideas and products, I am probably slightly biased as I spent two wonderful years living […]
