As soon as I saw the Cole and Son Birch wall paper I knew we had found a seriously stylish couple of local florists.
One of my real favorites was definitely the gold fish bowl of tulips (brilliant Libby!)
With the plans for the shoot all in place, the following Thursday I took the trusty Volvo round to their shop in Ipswich and completely filled it to the gunnels with all manner of spring gorgeousness.
We headed down to the Design Centre at Chelsea harbour yesterday for the London Design Week. Full of ideas , trends for 2013 and a amazing style inspiration, Chelsea harbour is always a fantastic place to visit for anyone with an interest in interior design .
The harbour was looking particularly lovely this week bursting with of hyacinths and cheery blossom it really felt like spring had arrived.
We enjoyed a great masterclass in choosing the perfect capsule collection for your home, from some leading lights in design : the renowned Allegra Hicks (who was completely glamorous) , lovely Marianne Cotteral (who was v cool and stylish) and Elenoara Cunietti (who we all agreed would be a great person to go for a glass of wine with).
We then spent a very entertaining hour listening to the brilliant Shaun Clarkson, whose bold colours and design can be seen in many of London’s hottest bars and restaurants, as well as his work with for private clients. He has an infectious laugh and brought a real sense of fun to his talk about his work in design.
Top of the list has to be our new Samworth Oil Lamp. Released just this week, this beautiful little glass oil lamp is just the perfect Mother’s Day gift . The antiqued brass topper gives this oil lamp an old fashioned charm and the delicate hand-blown glass base is reminiscent of a vintage perfume bottle. It will certainly bring style and sparkle to your table this Sunday.
Held every year in London, Decorex features a fantastic array of designers with everything from lighting and wall papers to outdoor furniture and artificial flowers on display.
Vivian Westwood’s beautiful design for the show entrance was a great start to the day
The Portabello Table Lamp had an audience with royalty recently when it graced the dinning tables for HRH Prince Phillip and the Cutty Sark Trustees. A dinner was held to celebrate a new chapter for the Cutty Sark after its refurbishment following a fire in 2007 that devastated the famous ship.
When we heard from one of our customers about some rather stylish self catering barns in Derbyshire we thought we’d share them with you (and even better we couldn’t help but notice rather a lot of Jim Lawrence products in the barns!) The Brailsford Barns have beautifully designed rooms and our Jim Lawrence products really add the finishing touches to the rustic country look.
Here at Jim Lawrence we have always been extremely proud of our customer services team. We feel they are second to none at delivering great advice, help and service when our customers place an order, so it was an absolute delight to us when we received the following letter from a new customer who had just received her Granary Light :
