Apartment Love :: Gothenburg

I am always inspired by the light filled apartments in the land of design. This 1900's Gothenburg apartment teases me with its stunning original fireplace, high ceilings and fabulous way of using books to add a touch of colour.

London Design Festival :: 14 - 23 September 2012

This year marks the 10th London Design Festival. One of the events we hope to visit is 'Enter the Imaginerium' which is a workshop space located within the Fabrications gallery/shop.

Fabrications is a shop/gallery and studio space located in Hackney, East London that is dedicated to upcycling and eco design. It has helped to promote and sell the work of over 200 local artists as well as held crafty workshops. As part of London Design 2012 they will be holding various workshops as well as inviting everyone to visit their space. Some of the upcycled creations on offer include:

Upcycled Shirt and Tie made into cushions:

Also their popular Rethink Rubbish kits. These kits are full of carefully selected materials and instructions to create such awesomeness as knitted mobile phone cases (made from plastic bags), fascinators, sustainable gift wrapping and these beautiful brooches!

For more information check out their online shop here.

Took my blog for a coffee yesterday.....

Here is what I said:

Dear Blog,

I know I have not been paying you any attention.  I have been indulging in a few of my latest crushes (pinterest, google reader, instagram, blood orange gelato)

 Right here, Right now, I promise to you I will think of you daily.  I will nourish you with my words and ideas,  I will share with you the wonders I come across on this big wide world of Internet land. I will give you a spring spruce up!

If nothing else, I promise that from this day forth, I will be mindful of your existence.

Lets be friends again....
