Things That Made Me Smile This Week

My blog has moved and changed name to DESIGN SODA, I’d love it if you followed along with my new content there.

 

  1. Design crush of the week –  I love, love, love these homewares illustrated by children’s author Elsa Beskow which are new in at Skandium – a little twee but very covetable, my personal favourite is the Blue Uncle Mug, although I also love the walking fish and Lady Fuschia!                                                         Elsa Beskow Uncle BLue mug  by Design House - Stockholm - Skandium Elsa Beskow mugs       Elsa Beskow mug FuschiaElsa beskow mug fish Elsa Beskow tray square cabbage Elsa Beskow tray radish
  2. Vintage advertising painted on buildings. Like ghosts from a bygone age, these modern ruins always put a smile on my face. This Peterkin Custard one (below) is located in Battersea and the almost vanished Nestle Milk one is found in Wandsworth. Hoping to happen upon some in my own neck of the woods Tooting…        Peterkin Custard Painted Building Vintage advert Nestle Milk Painted Building Vintage advert
  3. Last week was London Design Week and by serendipity we had the week off work, hooray. Alas, it would have been perfect if we hadn’t both been poorly! However, with so many interesting things staying around, past the week, I can’t be too disenchanted. Take this wonderful Endless Stairs installation put up in collaboration with LDF at Tate Modern, definitely worth catching before it disappears. endless_stair_Tate
  4. I absolutely love the sherbert tones of the new colour collection at Farrow and Ball for Autumn. My absolute fave is St Giles Blue, that blue is unreal, am going to have to find a piece of junk furniture to daub it on…
