Apologises for not posting these last few days – my end of week got a bit crazy – in a good way.Am feeling very Christmassy right now – having spent the weekend walking around town prepping for a shoot I am doing with Grazia the end of this week – and talking of shoots thank you very much for the lovely feature in the Times at the weekend – 6 pages – wow amazing – thank you!
So as hosting Christmas this year I am examining my pad in microscopic detail. Certain rooms need way more lighting so on a frantic search to find some cool pieces to up the style ratings. Luckily have a very cool friend with the most beautiful store – Emily Chalmers owns Caravan in east London http://www.caravanstyle.com and sells these Jielde lamps pictured below. I have been coveting these lamps for ages and just love their simplicity – so yesterday brought one!
Having a concession in Bluebird is wonderful in so many ways -each week my sister and I gaze, gawp and gasp at all the beautiful clothes, shoes, bags and these incredible lights – made from old brioche tins. How simple is that -am ordering straight way – can just imagine them in a cluster hanging over the balcony – and then thats it no more spending promise, promise, promise!
If I may I am going to put my interior design hat on for one mo and say that whilst its important to have a collection of beautiful lights – its also important to have bulbs that are relatively low in wattage as they create a far more beautiful atmosphere – plus please please don’t eradicate all shadows – shadows are fabulous they add intrigue and make you long way younger!
