This weeks post is slightly tongue in cheek, and not at all what I will be up to today. I need to get my house back in order, after the chaos of the half term break. I’ll be rushing around changing all the beds and have a least 5 loads of washing to do….but I can dream right?
I had asked on twitter….
‘what would you like me to include on my I Love Mondays post?’
Their reply was for me….
‘to blog about 5 minutes peace, now the children are back at school! ‘
Well, with this in mind I tried to imagine what I would like to do, if I had 5 minutes peace today. I very quickly imagined a scene, and then virtually shopped to try and recreate it for you.
Ok, so lets start with something to read:
How about this cloth bound hardback, of my all time favourite book Jane Eyre. They have been individually designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith, with 29 editions to collect. This would be the one for me, on offer at the moment for 11.99 from Waterstones.
Now somewhere to recline:
How about this dark grey velvet ‘Pepper’ chaise longue from Sweetpea and Willow, priced at £595. It’s not only stylish, it looks so comfortable. With studded detail and casters, so it could be moved around.
A cushion to rest my weary head:
This cushion is from John Lewis by the humorously titled duo of designers ‘Timorous Beasties’ for £90
This decorative cushion captures urban life in London through the uncompromising and provocative eyes of the pair.
Modern Westminster’s iconic skyline is represented with a subversive and dark edge, while the reverse features the silhouette of a solitary man flanked by a television mast and ragged wildlife.
I love it! The dark grey and yellow would look great together, and I’m a big fan of British designers working with their environment for ideas.
Finally something to drink:
I pondered for sometime, discarded Prosecco or a Mojito (I am a responsible parent you know) I wanted to be calm and comforted, so I went for :
Cosy tea Earl Grey, they promise that their organic tea’s make a lovely brew. I also love the design of the boxes, just plain fab!
And finally, a yellow cup:
I like that this represents a more modern traditional feel, I can imagine hugging this cup as I read my book. You can buy saucers, but I like the idea of buying it on it’s own. All the details are here. It is designed by Hanna Tonnek Bonnett and is priced at £26. Every purchase from CultureLabel helps to support the arts.
So what to think, do you want to share this 5 minutes peace with me?
Thank you for reading
