OK so to be completely and utterly straight up and honest I've nothing particular to report on the old renovation game this week. Of course there is a most excellent excuse however in that in the last week we've celebrated mother dearest's birthday as well as my birthday and from lunches here, dinners there and of course a bit of a BIG NIGHT OUT in town well not much has been achieved. Oops!! Oh well I have to say
it has been a blast!!
In saying all that though there has been a multitude of new product lines dropping in and are on display instore and online now (www.raptonline.co.nz) and many of these new lines are quite inspired by the design line I think we should take with the renovation so I thought we could take a look at them. In all honesty I'd love to see some of em' in my house too.....hmmm we shall see haha!!
The first exciting new piece that I just love love love is this Tripod Lamp available in a table or floor lamp style. It's so funky incorporating a retro look with a modern twist. It's a lamp that really makes a statement without being overbearing an I love that simplicity. My concern about using this lamp in the first renovation room is that as it's black and we are dealing with a
room that naturally is not flooded with light I'm wondering if it is just too dark, once we get our colour scheme sorted we can look at the options as there are I think 1 or 2 other colour options for these lamps.
This Lamp May in fact be a better option for the room dependant
on the final style decided. This is a deceiving lamp and when you see it in real life you'll be surprised by the size of it!! I think it's a great option for a bedroom however so I think this is a definite possibility. We've gone a little lamp crazy lately as we are amazed at the pure lack of choices out there in the market!
Lamps and clocks are things one really must consider when restyling your house. Clocks are such a fashion statement if done right and lamps are so important as lighting is what sets the scene, what creates a feeling and makes a home your home!!
So to look at some clocks this is our absolute top selling clock. It's that retro neutral style that adds a bit of funk and it's BIG!! When it comes to clocks these days anything under 30cm will generally not suffice and anything around the 40-50cm mark is generally
ideal. Of course make sure they don't tick loudly.....nobody can stand the ..tick...tick...tick of a ticking clock although often this will come down to cost, the cheaper the clock the more likely it is ti TICK!!
The Clock I would like to see incorporated into the renovation
is this one, The Wooden Cut Out Clock. The photo doesn't really do it justice but this clock is modern and funky but still has that earthly homely feel with it's wood grain look!
I'm gonna have rather a hard job getting this one through though Ithink...it's probably Mum's least favourite clock in the range haha!! I guess you can't account for taste....hehe...she's gonna kill me for the one hahahaaa!!
Anyway I'm outta time so will have to bid you all farewell!! Till next time!!
