Autumn details

It’s that time of year again here in rural England, when dark evenings and often gloomy days call for indoor spaces to be illuminated by layers of lighting. The hallway needed some TLC, though I’d written about it before (here), the redecoration stalled as life and a lack of ££ got in my way. But now, what was an unloved corner bang opposite the front door, filled with discarded boots and battered bags (first impressions – not good!), has had an injection of colour, texture and light:

It’s warmer and more welcoming in the evening…

…whilst in the daytime, even the cats tolerate the new arrangement….

For a hall-sized console table, this metal table from Cox & Cox is pretty perfect: slim enough to be out of the way, yet elegant and understated; it also kindly masks the boring (but increasingly necessary) radiator from view. And as ever, clever BHS comes up trumps with low level lighting solutions.

My go-to finishing details right now are geometric, textured ceramic vases in interesting shapes, fashionable colours and a cluster of different sizes: head to the wonderful Graham & Green, Rockett St George and Rigby & Mac for a tempting seletion on each site.

Next up, I’m coveting these autumnal Broste Copenhagen vessels from Rigby & Mac, with their informal, two-tone drip dry paint finish.

Enjoy the beautiful autumn colours outdoors; and happy vase shopping, if like me, you’re that way inclined! Jx

Rockett St George

February is underway – thank goodness – and with what a great start: the fabulous interiors emporium Rockett St George have listed Find the Details as the blog to watch on their Hot List for this month.

A huge thank you! to the team there: and a big hello to everyone who has discovered this site through Rockett St George: I hope you enjoy what you find; do get in touch with any comments or ideas for future pages.

What was so touching about being featured, is that Rockett chose to feature Find the Details purely because they liked the content: I haven’t, till now, included any of their products. So not before time, and also on the off chance that any of you haven’t discovered them, here’s a quick glimpse of my favourite pieces now at Rockett St George this spring….

Owner Jane has a magpie-eye for interesting, quirky finds – right up my street…. Her stock can’t be labelled with one particular look: instead you’ll find an eclectic and well-thought-out mix of well designed pieces, varying in style from industrial to glamorous, practical to whimsical, with ideas for every room in the house.

This large-scale station-style wall clock is perfect for kitchen walls…

If you live in a more child-free environment than I do, these freestanding cubes are perfect, grouped together to form a simple display area.  They would also work well as chic, simple  storage / display in a teenager’s room.

This lamp is a perfect example of the quirky finds at RSG: the lamp base is made from a silvered vintage soda bottle, and comes with a grey black shade: each piece is a one-off: a beautiful find.

On the right, Mr Perswall wall murals can be made to fit any wall space: I love this Library design, with its cheerful rainbow shades.

Look closely and you’ll discover tiny details: the enamel measuring jug would be at home in any kitchen… whilst these Shopping List fridge magnets (almost) look good enough to eat…
