Mr. Bazaar’s Painting and Lighting Update!

1 | 2 via 3

On Monday I decided my living room needed an extra dash of colourful playfulness, so I hotfooted it down to Farrow & Ball and picked out their ‘Cook’s Blue’ colour. Now the painting is complete I’m searching out other pieces to go with the new colour. I’ve had these Aperture pendantsΒ for some time now but they’re not really working with the new, more nautical-inspired look. So, I’m going to swap them out for these fisherman-inspired pendants instead. I’m really looking forward to hanging them in the space, especially because I have some great Edison-style bulbs to use, too. What have you bought for the home that’s excited you recently?

    I'm crazy about those lights.I hope you show a picture of them installed. We just finished the installation of a custom cabinet/entertainment center for our home. It was has made all the difference in the look of our place and I can't wait to show the before and afters on my site.

    I love the pendants and the colour!!
    Well , I don't buy stuff for my house, I make stuff !! Lately I have been making some super cute cushions for throwing in a big comfortable pile on my Lutyens bench in the garden.You can see them on my Facebook page if you want to have a look :-).There is nothing like enjoying the last bits of sunshine in the garden and lazing around with a good book and a cup of tea!!
    Enjoy your weekend.

    Wow, I love these. Are you getting them like this? In white? Très très awesome. Have a wonderful weekend Will! Once you've finished all that redecorating, any chance you can drop on by my place and help me with mine? ;p

    I got my very first condo about 5 months ago and aside from my kitchen cabinets (that I painted white over the discusting “salmon guts” that was there before) I still haven't done any decorating yet (it's a bit impersonal and colorless). I love colors but I also love antiques and natural wood so most of my furniture is like that. Now I need to find the perfect colors and the perfect touches to make it my space and you'r blog gives me the best ideas (exept I have to hunt for similarities in my country because I don't have access to most of the stores you link here and the Euro is just mean to my wallet).
