On these warm long summer nights (blissful), it is so tempting to get out the lounger, a sneaky Pimm’s and simply relax, soaking up the sun and that lovely summery feeling. Wouldn’t it be great if you could recreate that bright, airy look inside your home?
Home is truly where the heart is and here at Podarok, we enjoy sourcing only pieces we think add a touch of something special to your home. Hannah Nunn’s papercut lamps create soft, subtle light and really help you to relax. Inspired by the uncomplicated beauty of nature, her table lamps feature Cow Parsley plants, the delicate Snowdrop plant or my personal favourite (well they are just too cute) the Coal Tit. They really capture the British countryside. Available in a number of sizes, they are the perfect lighting solution. We actually love her stuff so much that we have just introduced her candle covers, which when lit, appear almost magical. Why not place a couple in your living room for a modern and innovative look that brings little snippets of nature into your home.
Many of you will know that we are a little crazy about lampshades, be it the Fox & Cubs, Owl, or the ever charming Wild Boar (mischievous little piglets abound), made by the fabulous ladies at Lush Designs of London. Well, now we have extended the range, including the new Cat design in luscious pink and the Sisken range. I love them all, but I do have my eye on the Sisken ceiling shade. Featuring a lovely scene of a bird in flight, it comes in arctic or sea blue for an instantly fresh and bold addition to any room. A lovely centrepiece, you may find yourself (and the Pimm’s of course) heading inside of an evening, just to admire it and pat yourself on the back for a purchase well made!
