French Connection Home A/W

Revamp your space this season with a plethora of modern homewares and accessories. French collection have launched a new homeware collection, keeping you up to date with the latest trends. There are some great industrial inspired elements that are also really versatile.

My favourite piece of all has to be this Bottle Chandelier. A perfect, unique accessory for the kitchen or dining room. At £140 it's priced fairly well for such a unique find. 

Opulent and striking, this chandelier will light up the darkest of corners. 

Available to view here.

Next up on my shopping list will be this gorgeous Trestle Desk. Its made from mango wood and is inspired by industrial work benches, it will bring a stripped back feel to any work space. 

Easily accessorised as its such a strong feature on its own.

Anyone for a new rug? 

I can't get enough of rugs, they pull a room together and create "areas" in a room. This one doesn't disappoint. Gorgeous colours, gorgeous style and it manages to create an antique but quirky look to the room.

You can never have too many candle holders and this one ticks all the boxes. Great for creating centrepieces or using on a side table. Modern and minimalistic, this will suit a paired down aesthetic.

Create a bold statement with this small tray coffee table. Looks great accessorised over a woven rug, 
It features a solid wood top and stark angular legs.

Glamorous & Inspirational Ikea Hacks 2014

Here are some of my favourite Ikea Hacks I've come across lately. So inspiring, I'm definitely going to try a few modifications myself. Everyone has differing views on Ikea furniture but no-one can deny the practicality and versatility of their pieces. It's always good to be able to put your own stamp on things though.

Not just another Rast makeover...

This is one of the most original Rast makeovers I've seen. This can also be achieved really easily, providing you can find the right fixings. This can also easily be adapted to suit your tastes.

Two pairs of Rast drawers have had their knobs removed and be painted in a high gloss black lacquer. 
The fixings have then been added to create the unique look of the drawers.

This also looks stunning when painted in a high gloss white lacquer and crystal knobs are used, very girlie and glam.

Fancy something that looks a little vintage?

Well it goes without saying that this is awesome! A really unique take on some ikea drawers using some industrial steel fixings.

Inspiration from Ikea Hackers

Glam, Glam, Glam...

Simple yet effective and so easily done. Take the grey Lack Ikea tables add some silver studs (can be easily purchased at various online stores) and add as shown in the image. Glue a square piece of mirror to the top of the table et voila!

Uber glamorous and very easily achieved
