FAST LANE IN YOUR KITCHEN
With the country glass cloths by Mungo you will have some nice linen in your kitchen and also dry up your glasses much faster as they have an extra fast absorbing fabric which even makes the glass shining and cristal clear. To order atwww.larcobaleno.com.
GO OUT AND LOOK AROUND
Be inspired by cool restaurant designs which give you ideas for your own home. For example the Circus Bar & Restaurant in London designed by Tom Dixon.
Put art in your bathroom and make it more look like a room. Use a beautiful carpet instead of a simple bathmat and play with lights and lampshades so you will feel compfortable and cosy.
SIT DOWN & RELAX
Invest in a statement peace to put on your balcony or garden. The plants will do the rest. For example a lounge chair by by Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia.
Use a floral pattern in your living room to welcome spring. For example a pillow case by Neisha Crosland for Chelsea Editions; or just a blossom blanket to lay on top of your sofa. You can also simply pin a meter of floral fabric onto your regular curtains and give your room instantly a spring feeling.
Use a bookshelve which can at the same time devide one room into two. The Design 606 Universal Shelving System by Dieter Rams is a perfect storage for your art books and an artful wall.
Use your dining table as an Art library when you do not entertain friends. Art books look much nicer when they lay on a table with your favorite page kept open.
THE BED MAKES THE DREAM
Invest in a good matress and duvee, fine bed linen and a statement headboard covered in your favorite material. Remember that you spend almost half of your life in bed.
Have your terrace and balcony planted with all year round greens and buy the new book by Isabelle Palmer, The House Gardener, which offers inspiration for miniature gardens and balconies anyone can master.
