I popped into The Kitchen for a lemon square hit after a meeting the other day and i was lucky enough to see Karen, who owns this well-loved joint! She made me chuckle when she told me that each of the books she sells (remember i posted about her book here?) goes towards her home kitchen renovation fund. At the moment, she’s focusing on a tile splashback for her stove – a portrait from the V&A Museum in tile format.
I was a little confused and then she explained, you can go onto this site called Surface View and order one of a gazillion images from botanical to architectural, textile and iconic in everything from window blinds to lampshades and tiles. Holy freaking mackerel that’s clever. Obviously we can get amazing wall stickers and bespoke wallpaper in SA and i’ pretty sure lampshades wouldn’t be difficult to source but tiles? How cool! And these folks do it all online, just like that …here is a selection i made of tiles i spotted
and here are some lampshades
and here is a blind – rather an eyeful to have in one’s workspace but hey, each to his own
Have a happy day lovelies! Off to the launch of Entrepo – an amazing lifestyle brand that i have been meaning to blog about for ages, if you haven’t visited their stores, you should. I’ll share all the info next week.
