An Alternative Eco-friendly Fireplace - Bioethanol Fires

There’s nothing more magical than a lit fire on a cold winters evening don’t you think? And whilst we don’t rely on them solely for heating with underfloor or central heating being the mainstay in our homes, you can’t beat them for providing visual comfort.

Soft furnishings are so important in adding texture, pattern, colour and interest to our spaces. They also provide us with a feel-good factor and comfort.

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. It’s not just their swoon worthy, good-looking textured forms, or how they provide warm, intimate ambient lighting that gets my attention.…
