Coffee tables don’t just provide somewhere nice to enjoy your caffeine fix… in the modern home they meet many different needs. For some, coffee tables are stylish focal pieces around which the rest of the room is centred. For others, a coffee table might serve a more practical purpose such as holding magazines, somewhere to put your feet up, or the perfect place to style your favourite accessories! You should find a coffee table to meet your own specific needs, and luckily they come in all shapes, sizes and materials.
Designing a bedroom for children is enormous fun. There is no limit to the imagination when it comes to the theme… step out of your comfort zone and embrace a palette of more whimsical colours, or create a dreamscape full of inspiring accessories. From balloon lamps – think Mary Poppins! – to stylish Scandinavian toys, we think that these vintage designs will transform a child’s living area into a world of imagination.

Embracing life in the bucolic English countryside also meant relocating from her modernist house to a historical Georgian property. Thus began the challenge of merging Ruth’s love of mid century modern design with other period pieces, all of which you can see developing over at @casacrilly. Here Ruth gives a spirited run through of her favourite finds so far…
The general assumption is that we are humans of the digital era. Little beknownst to many, we actually find ourselves in the age of the Golden Pineapple. You may already be familiar with the tidal wave of golden pineapples which flooded into our homes and lives over recent years. Here is a selection of some flamboyant pineapple finds we just couldn’t keep to ourselves.
Our homes should reflect the limit of our imaginations and sometimes you just see something which in isolation seems a bit bonkers – but in the right setting fits just a glove and adds touches of real character.
