Books and bulbs

I received some really great books recently that I wanted to share with you today (I LOVE BOOKS!!!) and I didn't think I could ever get excited about light bulbs, but it happened!

I will start with a book by Sara Emslie, a London-based interiors stylist and writer, called Urban Pioneer with photos by Benjamin Edwards and published by my favourite Ryland Peters & Small

The book features incredible interiors that take their inspiration from industrial design. It provides an in-depth look at twelve inspiring homes that were originally non-residential and have since been converted. Exposed brick, copper piping, bare roof trusses, concrete floors...all the elements of industrial spaces that make my heart skip a beat. I adore this book and am adding it to my coffee table pile.

Mid-century modern in the English countryside

A whole pile of mid-centry modern/retro fabulousness to end off the work week. Surrounded by beautiful English countryside, this vast new-build features floor-to-ceiling windows which highlight the stunning rural location. The sensation of bringing the outside in is further emphasised through the open-plan layout which flows seamlessly from room to room, offering the perfect space for socialising. Teeming with unexpected details at every turn, iconic pieces such as an Eero Saarinen table and Warren Platner chair elevate the space from ordinary to extraordinary. A unique sunken lounge exquisitely framed by a statement pendant and futuristic basement bar with a cinema and music room offer areas for both formal and informal entertaining in this inviting country home. By London-based architectural interior design studio Oliver Burns

Texture and tribal

Modern global. It's all about layering textures and patterns from around the world. In this home, by Logan Killen Interiors, African is mixed with Middle Eastern, modern with vintage, the silkiness of velvets against nubbly natural fibres and roughly hewn wood. Kuba cloth and kilim ... perfect.

Soaking

Oh it's you! Didn't see you there. I was too busy soaking in my bubble bath taking in the view. Love this bathroom by Jeff Trotter Design. Love the herringbone stone floors, the soft green vanities, the rustic texture added by the rug and that too too cute faux bois table.
