10 Of The Best Nature Inspired Table Lamps

A small disaster beset the I.E. household last week. Ok, not so much a disaster, but more of the breakage of a favourite kitchen lamp of which the I.E. Hubs is guilty. In his defence, it did happen whilst in the throes of decorating the other end of our kitchen dining space so all is forgiven.

Kitchen Makeover with Photowall

It’s been an exciting week at the I.E. Household as we’ve been in collaboration with Photowall who very kindly provided us with the opportunity to choose and install one of their rather fabulous wall murals.
