bright idea

hello friends… we’ve had a freezing cold snap this week in Cape Town & more to come tomorrow, so I thought I’d brighten things up around here with my bright idea guest post for Freeworld Design Centre

entrepo pendants

It was love at first sight when I spotted these bright yellow pendants made of soft silicone rubber by Muuto, available locally from Entrepo at the V&A Waterfront. I snapped this pic using Instagram…it sparked my imagination & got me thinking of the visual impact great lighting can have. The brightly coloured trend in lighting is eye-catching & gives an undeniable design nod to the mid-century lighting classics of yesteryear. These images from Bolig magazine are bright, contemporary & bang on trend…



These elegant pendants in retro shades by Inge Sempe are without question super cool…


And for a sense of humour, this needle desk lamp in bright turquoise could adorn my desk any day…


what's on your mind?
