light up your life

I'm researching lighting at the moment and so I thought I'd show you a few things that have caught my eye. I love the chandelier that looks like a firework in mid explosion - isn't it just magical?

This is a quick snap shot of a project that I completed last year. Although I am dying to show you what I've been doing, I can't post any of the professional shots until my new website is up and running and the press releases are out, but this photo should give you an ideaWhat I can tell you is the pendant light is called the Cabochedesigned by Patricia Urquiola.


I've been spending a lot of time exploring creative ways to light some pretty damn awkward spaces. I love the idea of illuminated ceilings (popular in the 60's & 70's), where diffuser panels are hung like a suspended ceiling below florescent lights.  These photos are from a project in Portland Place, W1. One of the teams of builders that I work with from time to time, did this - his detail is so good that it actually makes me feel emotional. Great, isn't it?


  1. Love those kind of chandeliers that create a wow experience in a room!!

  2. it's amazing the achievements being made in lighting, just amazing. speaking from experience in my field, landscape architecture, it seems like everyday there is something new!

    can't wait to see more of your projects!!

  3. Since I am addicted to fairy lights, of course I love these, they are sort of like the fairy lights but far more structured and adult! I like that, having the effect without having your room look like a dorm room!

  4. hi heather. i can't wait to see more of 'image 3' .. please, not even a little hint? all very exciting. thanks for joining my blog - and so glad I found yours. the world is a big place but in www-world it squishes down and allows us to fine like-minded creative souls. i look forward to visiting again and seeing your finds. have a great day (-:
