Day of the Dead Wallpaper

13 Apr

I am so proud of my friend Emily in not only designing, but also producing, this incredible wallpaper inspired by Mexican sugar skulls. Super chic.

Day-of-the-Dead-Sugar-Skull-Wallpaper-1

The elegant design of the Sugar Skull is representative of the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations, where this folkloric skull is a ‘Memento Mori’ and has become an iconic symbol of life and death.

In this unique wallpaper, the intricately illustrated skull has been given a sophisticated twist by replicating it in gold on a rich matt dark charcoal, making it a luxurious addition to any interior.
Technical Information:

Roll size: 10m x 52cm
Pattern repeat: 53cm
Made in the UK

Burning skulls

21 Nov

OK so I have seen many skull candles (including the luke warm ones from All Saints)) but these from Moleta Munro x Koff are AMAZING! OK so given £48 for a candle is soooooooo expensive but when the look this good it is very tempting. This is massively on my Christmas list I can tell you – pleeeeeeease can someone get it for me 😉

Too often its true beauty is over looked we see only death, but this situation is changing with the increase in our interest in the natural world, the embracing of museums, and appreciation of design all contribute to a new aesthetic.

This china light fitting from Alex Garnett is beautiful – and I have to say at £150 pretty reasonable too. I am so getting one (to treat myself as having terrible time at the moment): via Notcot
