I am officially addicted to Instagram! Every day I try to take one or two photos to keep up my feed of daily observations, I think it's like Twitter but with pictures. I feel like I've got new 'friends' in my fellow Instagramers, I can't recommend it enough if you've got an iPhone and a compulsion to take pictures!

Chunky Knitted Loveliness

These knitted baskets are LOVELY. They are by Ferm Living which can be found on the 95% Danish website. As for the cushions, they are even better. They are so tactile, I think that varying textures in a room is very important - I have always had a bit of a 'thing' about cork too (coaster featured below is also by Ferm Living). I bought a cork lampshade by Habitat a few years ago when I moved into my first flat - my mum said she thought it had come with the flat - which was previously owned by a lovely old lady who had a penchant for floral borders (one in EVERY room including a particularly delightful one in the kitchen featuring bowls of fruit)! Charming.

Midcentury Magazine

I just subscribed to this magazine! I can't wait to see it! Found it thanks to Jane Foster.

I want to go here

They have a beach on the roof of the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill on Sea, what a fab idea. To quote them:

Cocktails, ice cream, deck chairs, palm trees, pedalos, sun loungers, telescopes, music, fun... beach life comes to the Pavilion roof this summer with everything you need for that ultimate seaside experience. Bring your coolest beachwear, towel and sunscreen and relax on Dune - Bexhill’s first ever beach on the roof. Free entry.

I want to go. The DLWP is my favourite building in the UK (that I have seen so far) - if you have never been, I highly recommend it. And they have Eddie Izzard there on the 8th July but it has sold out. :o(

I know I have been SO RUBBISH at blogging but I am DETERMINED to be better! And I have just discovered the Instagram app which I totally love! Here is my new plantpot that I mused over a while ago.

Festival of Britain

I received my Elle Decoration magazine and the first thing to catch my eye was beautiful tableware from Minimoderns inspired by the Festival of Britain. So I hopped on their website and to put it simply, they make great stuff! But I particularly like the Festival range as I have been reading a book about all the souvenirs they made back in 1951 for the Festival. Plus I saw the exhibition at the Pallant House Gallery in Chichester when I went to see the Robin & Lucienne day exhibition. It is all very inspiring plus has that great 50s vibe about it which has become much more popular in interiors recently.

Here are some Minimodern highlights. We haven't decorated our lounge yet and all this is VERY inspirational!
