Design Crush - Scraplights by Graypants

If you follow me on Social Media, you’ll have seen that I recently visited Clerkenwell Design week in London. It’s a must see event featuring the very latest in design as well as touching base with some old favourites such as Scraplights by Graypants.   I have to say these decorative pendant lights hold me captivated every time I see them.

Designer Crush – Timorous Beasties

March 3, 2017

Having said that, for me their designs are works of art in their own right. And who doesn’t want to have some form of art in their homes.   Timorous Beasties fabrics and wallpapers are handprinted and are the mainstay…
