Project update - Sneak peak

I visited a (almost completed) project at the weekend. There are a few things to finish on the snagging list and an exciting illustration commission to be installed but the family are in and it was great to see them using the space. First two images show the space before work started.

Lovely things

Love this and what a bargain at £49.98. Get it from B&Q of all places!

A little pricier but beautiful. Copper pendant by Jørn Utzon. Buy it here.

Cute Grey Stripe Wooden Ruler from Cow & Co.

Pocket sized guides on City cycling published by Thames and Hudson in collaboration with my favourite cycling brand,Rapha.

I'd love this! . But with a broken leg keeping me off the bike until the New Year, don't think I will be purchasing anytime soon!

Birthday fun

We took the day off for my birthday and had a leisurely drive to the South coast to visit a couple of buildings that had been on my must do list for some time. First stop was the Jerwood situated on the working fishing beach of old Hastings. The collection wasn't our thing at all but we really went to see the building so it didn't matter. From inside the large frameless windows capture the realism of the building's surroundings turning the views into the best artwork hanging in the gallery.

A few miles down the road is the amazing De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill on Sea. The building blew me away. It was designed by Erich Mandelsohn and his short lived partner Serge Chermayeff between 1934-35. The welded steel frame holds the concrete form which is finished in bright white. The sea elevation is long and geometric only interrupted by the glass stair tower that protrudes out to the sea view in a gentle curve.

The final stages of a project have started. Lighting going in, joinery fitted. Kitchen fitting next week. It's going to look amazing.

New bathroom is coming along. It's going to look fantastic. I rather like the ply subfloor but sadly it can't stay.
