Eames Lounger Chair....

Interior Style Classic the Eames Lounger in Brown Leather

A Vintage Style Classic, The Eames Lounger and Ottoman

Eames Lounger in the wonderful Eames House

Maybe it's because I have been listening to Charles Mingus, or maybe because I sat on a replica a couple of weeks ago, but I really, really have a craving for a brown Eames Lounge Chair. I am actually quite shocked by my taste sometimes, a couple of years ago I remember thinking they were boring and now here I am in Love, dreaming about listening to Jazz and reading Sartre... well not quite...

What do you think? Stylish Classic, or Boring?

Here is a full Tumblr to help you make up your mind, and here is more about the Eames House

Carved Wooden Headboards...

Beautiful Carved Wooden Headboard of four poster bed

Carved Wooden head Board
Lotus Carved wood head board similar available form Viva Terra
Carved headboard and Indian Hanging on teak Bed, and handira 

The top two are awesome aren't they? I am looking for something similar but they are pretty pricey on the web My favourite so far are this Karma Sutra head board , this Ramayana panel and the glorious  Lotus head board however I think it will have to be a good search for a thrifty bargain...

Sheepskin rugs ....

Bohemian Style: If a classic sheepskin rug would get ruined on the floor of your house, why not use one as a cosy chair throw? Cosy

Effortless Bohemian Style :Sheepskin on chair

Sheepskin Rug on Papasan Chair: Earthage Blog

Sheepskin Rugs: The home of Photographer Mark Borthwick
Sheepskin rug: Of course you could use one as a rug :)
Effortlessly Bohemian....I love sheepskin rugs they remind me of an awesome Afghan coat that I had when I was 15. It was the cosiest jacket ever, god knows what happened to it :(

Although I have a thing for sheepskin I am pretty clumsy and a white rug on my floor would get ruined, so I am loving the sheepskin on a chair look. A perfect snuggly winter chair look, or going by the rubbish weather at the moment even British Summer look :)

Readers Homes: Jessica from Lonely Moon Child

I have been sent so many pictures of cool homes and funky furniture finds from readers over the last few years that I thought it was about time I started showing off some of your beautiful abodes via a new feature simply called 'readers homes'.

I had seen a few shots of Jessica's house on facebook and knew I wanted to see more. Although Jessica still lives at home with her folks her bedroom is full of character and style. I am loving that shell mobile, collection of knitted blankets, and that vintage, retro green chair is so awesome!! I would defiantly feel comfortable chilling it that room listening to a bit of Jimi.....

The wrapped stones in the second picture are from Jessica's etsy store Lonely Moon Child, where she also sells vintage clothes, well worth a visit.

If you would like to take part in 'Readers Homes'  please e-mail me with a photo at:

The studio are allowing the public to take a tour of the Hobbit village which has been built on private farm land near Matamata. Al of the pictures are from this awesome dedicated Hobbit house Tumblr which I have spent hours dreaming over.....I am so in love, I WANT a hobbit house......

Hands up who's moving to Hobbiton with me?
