I couldn't think of a better way to start the week than with a Monday Mix Up, especially one with some of my favourite design finds of late....
I discovered these gorgeous pendant lights a couple of months ago over on Nordic Leaves. Beautifully crafted by Dutch furniture and interior design brand JSPR, Diamonds have a geometric design that is industrial yet elegant. Made from steel they come in gold or black.
I can't resist a black, white and wood combo, so when I came across this styling shot for the Silhouette Knife by Norwegian Petter Skogstad, I liked what I saw. Made for an independent exhibition in Tokyo called Food Work, (which I recently read a great post about here) Silhouette is a modern take on deba bōchō, a traditional Japanese knife which literally means "pointed carving knife".
This little gem is the the Charles Coat Hook by Swiss designer Nikolas Kerl. Made from an irresistible combination of unfinished ash wood and polished marble, it comes in three varieties, with the grain of the marble making each hook one of a kind.
To finish off, I've included my recent moodboards, all created using images from my Pinterest boards.
I'm not sure what the Queen would think of this moodboard, but I was inspired by the beautiful and uplifting quote by American novelist Jack Kerouac over the recent Queen's Birthday long weekend. Featuring zingy neons, Scandi style interiors, and a little bit of leopard print thrown in for fun.
Social media plays a big part in world of blogging and reaching 4000 likes on Facebook recently gave me reason to smile and to reflect on the journey so far. Of course it was also a great excuse for a moodboard! Small Steps Every Day is from a lovely blog I've started following recently, A House in the Hills by Wedding photographer Sarah Yates.
Lastly, some moodboard inspiration from Friday last week with the words Enjoy today and the gorgeous monochrome, pink and grey palette that I love so much.
