Ok so they’re over £13,000 so I’m never gonna buy one but how amazing are these chandeliers? They’ve horsies on em! And teacups! I don’t know why I like that! Check em out on Rockett St George.
The Baobob Tree site (www.thebaobabtree.co.uk) stocks the kind of things that make me want to blow the dust off my sewing machine and get crafting à la Danielle Proud. Then the laziness kicks in and I’m forced to face the fact that it’s far easier just to flex my credit card. The silk cushions are gorgeous. And they’re all green and eco-friendly and stuff.

I’m sitting here, rubbing my thighs like a dirty old man – gorgeous design on the mag itself but contents-wise, it’s full of amazing clothes, furniture, products and fabrics. Total design porn. Love it.
Now, I’ve been known to lust after random objects, not because I need them or have any real function for them but just cos they’re pretty. White ceramic rabbit with gold detailing? Yup, I’ll have one of those. The Dublin branch of Habitat has left a little hole in my life but they still deliver from Belfast. Pretty things from their Spring/Summer collection.
Etsy (www.etsy.com) is like the website equivalent of rummaging through a flea market/craft market. Some of it’s very handicrafty, some people shouldn’t be let have access to a needle and thread, but there’s some very quirky stuff on there if you’re willing to trawl through it. Some of the artwork is gorgeous. It’s based in the States so factor in delivery costs.
