Design Porn

At Liberty magazine (view here).
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.

Habitat

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

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.

From top: Sunken Cathedral, 13×15, acrylic on wood, painting, $200; Bird cushion in yellow, $35; Vintage Mid Century Black Retro Desk Lamp, $35; Alfred Hitchcock Silhouette Pillow on Goldenrod Fabric, $42.50.
