Adoring all things vintage, whimsical and downright quirky

Category Archives: Lighting

I’m a bit late to the party on this one, as I wrote this post back in September but life got in the way and I didn’t get around to publishing it. That said, this trend is not going anywhere! Whether it’s panda pillows, budgie bedding, polar bear pottery or elephant…well everything, animals are HUGE in interiors. Here is my pick of some lush lovelies I’ve seen around and about….

Animal head vases and wall hanging plant pots from £35 from Audenza
Flamingo shoes £290 from Charlotte Olympia
Percy the Pelican dish £21 from Graham and Green
Rabbit magnifying glass, £24.95, Graham and Green
Art House Elephant wallpaper in aubergine, £13.99 per roll from Go Wallpaper
Zebra Tea for One, £10 from Next
Darwin Gold or Black Monkey Pendant Lights, £61.99, Dowsing and Reynolds
Brown bear reusable printed recycled cotton lunch bag £16.91 from Oh Little Rabbit on Etsy

I’m rather fancying this smart new range of home accessories by Ben de Lisi at Debenhams. It’s got pigeons, doubledecker buses, clapperboards and other such fumbly Britishness. I totally have my eye on the typewriter cushion below and love the phone cushion too, but it’s the achingly retro-with-a-modern-twist telephone lamp that I am hankering for – at only £35 I might have to get this for my new home office…

They are both available from Debenhams.com and costs £18 each.
