    Today I’m drooling over the new digital wallpapers from Queen of Vintage, Cath Kidston. Originally developed to decorate the walls of the pretty Cath Kidston shops, so many customers (including myself!) asked if they could buy these lovely wallpapers that Cath has now made 10 designs available online.

    They cost £150 per roll, so I’ll just do a feature wall – perhaps the ‘Big Smoke’ London pattern in a kitchen alcove? – Ellie

    Give a budget clock designer style

    by  • Thursday, March 26, 2009 • 0 Comments

    This Sunday marks the beginning of British summer time, so don’t forget to put your clocks forward! If you can’t afford an expensive designer clock, have a look at this gorgeous idea from Lauren Smith and Derek Fagerstrom of The Curiosity Shoppe, published on the American Design*Sponge website.

    clock3It’s a cheap IKEA Rusch clock, which costs just £1.26! They spray-painted the frame and used a sheet of pretty vintage paper to line the inside. So simple yet so sweet, I love it – but Emily’s not so keen! Tell us what you think? I’ll be making my own version this weekend. – Ellie
