Summer here we come!

The wedding is a distant memory...

Like almost everyone in the country, we had a great Royal Wedding but doesn't it feel like a distant memory now?! It was a very busy time for us and the weekend just gone was our first opportunity to take stock and relax. Although we had a few drops of rain (and some mightly thunder), we still managed to get into the garden to do a spot of tidying up and partying.

Hang it All! Great Pendant Shade Lighting for the new season…

I’m often asked what is the quickest and easiest way to give your home a facelift when Spring arrives. Obviously, having a major Spring clean is a good starting point but beyond that, investing in a great new pendant shade or ceiling pendant light is the most effective thing you can do.

Easter – Lay a Little Egg for Tea…

Finally, Spring appears to have arrived (fingers crossed!) and with it, Easter. We love this time of year and we've been busy creating a gorgeous collection of new products for you (and ourselves!).  Obviously, one of the key themes for Easter is eggs and we have an abundance of great ‘eggy’ treats from wreaths to decorations and Easter gifts, with barely a hint of chocolate in sight. I’ve found it impossible to decide on my personal favourite, so here are my edited highlights:

Retro Homeware

A touch of bygone style at The Contemporary Home

As you might know by now, I love all things eclectic including retro homeware. If I can mix something old with something new, I’m in my element.

Whether the nights are long or short, I always think it’s lovely to see a beautiful light shining over my front and back doors. I love our outside wall lights for 2011. We’ve kept the selection simple but made sure that all our styles combine elegance and durability.

Retro Metal Signs

A cool way to share your style

I’ve long been a big fan of retro metal signs and it would seem I’m not alone. No sooner do we take delivery of a new batch, they are snapped up. And it’s not hard to see why. Not only do they give guests a sneaky taste of your own sense of humour and style, but many of them could easily pass as fabulous pieces of retro art as well.

Kitchen enamelware

A great way to combine style with function

There’s something very special about kitchen enamelware. It always makes me feel as though I’m cooking or baking in a bygone age, where everything is substantial and made to last. It also oozes style, which can’t be bad!

Gifts for the home

Giving is not just for Christmas!

Christmas is always huge news here at The Contemporary Home but it’s important to remember that giving is not just for Christmas! Buying gifts for the home can be equally special at Easter, as well as the more obvious special days such as Valentine’s and birthdays. I’m also pretty keen on buying myself gifts for the home at any time of the year!
