Hello my lovelies,
The smalls and I are back in Dubai after a wonderful few weeks spent in South Africa. The kids got to run free with their cousins and be dirty all day long and I got to catch up with friends and family and enjoy the gorgeous weather. It was a fabulous holiday by all accounts, but as the saying goes, it’s good to be ‘home’. We still have some time before school starts so life isn’t quite back to its normal routine just yet, we are however on the home stretch.
In other news, I appear to be cultivating a fairly serious crush on oversized fabric pendant lights. Random, I know. But trust me when I say I have a bad case of it. And as always, I blame those design-savvy Scandinavians. Their blogs and Pinterest feeds are strewn with inspiring minimalist, light-filled rooms which tend to showcase lighting in either of two extremes – small, exposed bulb type pendants (which I gushed about previously here), or oversized, textured fabric pendants – aka, my current object of desire.
These lights really caught my attention when I saw them in the beautiful Love Warriors images. I love the way that these substantial pendants make a bold statement without dominating a room, thanks to their airy, ethereal appearance. The fabrics used are light and natural – usually cotton or muslin in white or similarly light and earthy options.
Gorgeous, right? Tell me you feel it too.
I’m having hard time deciding on a favorite amongst the Z1 and Z5 Cotton lamps by Nelson Sepuvelda for Ay Illuminate (available from Bodie and Fou who ship worldwide), and the Enoki Cumulus pendant (see stockists here).
Which is your favourite?
