Brand Watch: Country Road

37589_190222_99654

The new collection from the Australian brand Country Road is teeming with desirable items, from tableware to bed and the brand’s fresh designs sit comfortably in the modern home. Both the tableware and textiles are minimal and this season’s best styles are monochrome, marble, or graphic. To guarantee a winning look, choose any combination, they all work seamlessly together. Colours are subtle with black, grey, lemon, melon and mint highlighted with brights – red and pink. Oh yes, great news – they ship to the UK.

Above: ‘Flourescent Tube Lights’ by Seletti at Heal’s – £35 each

 

Of the hundreds of products released I feature the ones that feel fresh and create the biggest impact. This week the Fluorescent Tube Lights by Italian company Seletti caught my attention. The 1.7m long tube emits a stunning glowing effect when turned on. Each decorative light includes a fixing for attaching to walls, and a floor stand to display upright. Choose from a variety of colours: Pink, Yellow, Primary Red, Medium Blue and Light Moss Green.

Editor’s pick: Abstract beach towel’s at the Conran Shop

Above: Coral Abstract Beach Towel – Conran Shop – £85

During the summer months I become a weather watcher, the first sign of sun and the beach bag is packed. At this time of the year, coming up to the end of the season, I never consider buying beach towels, I do own some perfectly good ones already – oversized stripes. Mid August my thoughts always veer towards my winter wardrobe and home styling. All that changed when I set my eyes on these fine specimens – a pair of cotton Matisse style towels, coined the ‘Abstract Towel’ range, exclusive in the UK at the Conran Shop. The designs will have a long shelf life in my home, with that in mind they are well worth the investment of £85 each. I will take both.

Styling Inspiration: Discarded furniture / Urban dump

Aliki said, “In an unclear, yet final movement, these chairs have been displaced from their domestic environment. They no longer function as a place of rest. Despite this though, an imprint of the lived body of the owner is undeniably visible on the surface and embedded within the very essence of the chair.”

The Skip Stop House by Design Haus Liberty

qrsU7jNfMaoKCSprhvcD3dKYWD8QHRsMMU8my7yu1Bo

Detail: Mirror adds space in the room and a hidden storage unit.

Skip Stop House is a multi-unit developer project in Marylebone, which consists of two existing buildings being combined to form: commercial units on the ground level, four individual flats and a mansard roof extension above. DH Liberty, the Notting Hill based practice was asked to find an architectural language to combine the buildings in a creative way. Their solution was to blur the boundaries of the two adjacent buildings and create Skip-Stop units, which offer both lateral and vertical spaces. The circulation strategy would accommodate entrances at every other level, keeping the horizontal spaces as social program and the vertical spaces as circulation and private program.

A caged wardrobe may come with drawbacks – thinking about the dust and constant styling, but the contents will be framed to perfection. Here the stylist adds clothes with a similar colour palette to contrast with the grey wall.

Friday Night Treat: Blueberry ice lollies

Blueberry lolly

Make Blueberry ice lollies with the children.

Ingredients:

226 g frozen Blueberries
170g full fat Sour Cream
180 ml unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (use any milk )
Vanilla Stevia- A drop

moulds

 

Method:

1- Let berries soften a few minutes. Whisk together sour cream and milk. Gently stir in blueberries. Sweeten to taste (I used 1 1/2 droppers full.) Spoon mixture into  moulds, tap them to the counter gently to release air bubbles.

2- Freeze for about 6 hours or overnight until solid. To remove from molds: run some warm water over the mold to release pops. Or let them sit out a bit until you can easily pull them out.
