Vintage cosy cushions

I recently created new cushions for our little flat with the aim of being vintage and cosy. For that, I combined New Zealand wool and different cotton patterns.

What do you think about those cushions? Let me know your thoughts, I’d be happy to hear about it !

I’m on my way to create more cushions for sale, so you can place your order now !

Get inspired and create the new Light trend

The last few months, I noticed more and more simple light bulbs flooring around. It’s time now to get some inspiration and create the same look : I’ll tell you how, follow me !

At the first glance, I found that hanging bulb very simple, industrial, and not specially decorative. But the more I see it, the more I appreciate it. In fact, the long vertical lines create more height volume in a room, it gives an impression of floating element in the void.

I’ll show you here :

  1. How I got inspired by this new lighting trend

  1. How I got inspired by this new lighting trend ?

Here is where I first saw it, in a new café in Wanaka: URBAN GRING

Mistales to avoid when you hang your light bulb

  1. Make sure the light is placed in a room with enough height. You want the light cord to be quite long in order to enhance the volume of your room. Too short, the light will look like a cheap temporary building light, and you don’t want that.
  2. Make sure the cord is flexible enough to be hanging well vertically. The light bulb is usually not heavy enough to guarantee the cord to be hanging vertically. A too stiff cord will create a non vertical line which will look wobbly, and cheap.
  3. The tip is to place several lights in a row to enhance the industrial repetitive style !
