Vegetables Allotment

This week saw the delivery of my Vegetable Allotment lampshades. Two 20cm shades for the mantlepiece, and one 30cm for the sideboard.

Not only decorative but they provide a lovely soft light source for cosy nights in.

Having spotted these in the November edition of Country Living magazine I thought that they would be perfect for my sitting room.

They are manufactured in the UK by Cream Cornwall . Each shade features beautiful line drawings of vegetables paired with traditional Victorian garden tools.

To create the look I desired I bought two antique black Stork lamp bases from OKA for the smaller shades.

For the 30cm shade I sourced this gorgeous Shaftsbury base from Neptune in Weybridge.

Currently celebrating the launch of their new season’s colour, Saffron, it was a delight to attend this weekend’s event.

This joyous hue is the perfect antidote for the solemn times that are currently engulfing mankind.

Leaving the store with my new lamp base, a complimentary Saffron coloured shopper, and a bunch of daffs brightened my day.

The good news is that this Spring event now runs until April 14th.

And The Colour Is….

Neptune have revealed their new Spring colour for 2020; Saffron.

My avid followers will know that I hinted at this in my blog of January 16.

It is now official.

Neptune’s publication, Stories, introduced the new hue.

“Our first ‘true’ yellow, Saffron offers a subtle sunniness that was very much inspired by our wish to develop a collection of subdued neutrals akin to those seen in archetypal Belgian interiors. To act as a foil against these neutrals though, we felt a more pigmented hue would help, and so blended a traditional yellow similar to what you might see in a British heritage property. To help it feel more contemporary, we suggest pairing it with Salt, but all spring and summer long, we’ll be presenting it in various schemes to inspire your own decorating projects.”

I wonder if yellow will become the new grey? It is certainly a possibility.
