Little Luxuries: Starry Light by Anagraphic

Living in London has many perks – a clear night sky is rarely one of them. In the past, we’ve had to delve deeper into the countryside to enjoy such luxuries as experiencing a sky full of stars. This beautiful new light, from Anagraphic, may be about to change that.

Made by hand, Starry Light boasts a hemispheric form, drilled to reflect different celestial constellations. The design is suitable for customisation according to a given date, time and geographical location, making it the ideal gift to commemorate a special occasion.

Available in five colours – matt white, glossy white, matt black, pearl violet and pearl gold – the Starry Light provides different light intensity in two directions, providing a strong direct light downwards, and ideal circumstances for the stars to shine on the walls.

Personally, we think it’s a great idea, and the perfect way to bring a little bit of the country into a hectic city life.

Interiors Inspiration: Bold colours in bedrooms

They say you should do only two things in your bedroom. And no, it’s not checking your work emails and browsing Twitter. And supposedly, to go in hand with these two things, your bedroom should be calm and peaceful, suggesting muted tones, plain interiors, lots of white, cream, beige and a whole array of pastels.

For me though, the bedroom is the room in our house where we can really show off our taste for colour, quirky décor and unusual designs, as it is the only room in the house that no one apart from the two of us has access to. With that in mind, when we saw the bedroom below we didn’t think twice – we were going to get that exact look.

We are going to pair the Palm Jungle Cole & Son wallpaper with Dulux’s Teal Tension. Tulle pendant lights from Urbanara will further complete the look, with the final must-have – a print of a Henri Rousseau painting. And while we’re going for a teal and jungle overload, there are other options to use bold colours in your bedroom, without making it too overwhelming, but instead, simply injecting some personality into the interiors and having some fun.

A strong coloured wall in your bedroom can provide a perfect backdrop for an art collection – especially when featuring prints and photographs close to your heart. And for the more faint-hearted among us, why not have some fun with the wall behind your bed’s headboard? This way you’ll avoid a colourful extravaganza the minute you open your eyes in the morning, but you’ll be able to enjoy a fun feature in the evenings. I’m particularly fond of the above playful geometrics.

For a very different yet still a bold look, you can get all arty and decorate your walls with wall murals, or simply splashes of colourful paint, choosing the colours that are especially close to your heart and set you in a good mood, giving you all the energy to face another busy day.

It’s important to remember to find balance though – for our bedroom we decided on a plain (but textured) carpet and dark, plain bedding to create a harmonious interior. Otherwise you might wake up in a lucid dream!

Little Luxuries: Alice in Wonderland rugs

We all have much-loved favourite characters that take us back to our childhood and Alice in Wonderland is perhaps one of the most recognisable of all. Believe it or not, it’s been 150 years since Lewis Carroll first sent Alice down that rabbit hole and to celebrate this, Rug Maker have brought out a collection of rugs in her honour.

Specifically chosen by the British Library, Rug Maker were granted the license to reproduce the original artwork by John Tenniel, taken from the first edition of the book. There are two designs available – Alice herself, contemplating the mysterious ‘Drink Me’ label, and her friend the White Rabbit, resplendent in costume at the Croquet Match and complete with his trusty pocket watch.

Handwoven in the Kathmandu valley, Nepal, from 100% New Zealand wool, the monochrome designs are created by highly skilled Tibetan and Nepalese weavers who hand knot Swiss aniline dyed wool onto cotton warps and wefts. Rug Maker are supporters of GoodWeave, a global non-profit organisation which ensures that child labour is not used in the manufacturing process of these rugs.

The rugs come in a standard 120 x 100cm size, but can be made to any size or colour at your request.

What could be better than combining literary classics with interiors? Nothing, that’s what!
