Freelancing and Mid-Century Modern Throwbacks

“I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.”
― Anna Quindlen

Last week Ruth from The Planned Adventure had an extra ticket to a blogging and freelancing event hosted by fabulous and hilarious ladies from Domestic Sluttery, and very kindly asked me to go along! It was a fun evening and I got to hear a lot of really good stories and advice from some ladies who know what’s up in the world of London writing. Many notes were taken, many business cards exchanged.

The event itself was held in Made’s showroom in Notting Hill Gate which impressed me greatly. Knowing approximately squat about interior design and decor, unlike Ruth who has a real eye for it, I wandered the room between speaking and Q&A sessions and took in the funky designs for your view pleasure.

Fun print and light fixture.

I miss our proper sofa. We're making due with a super cheap plastic loveseat, but it's just not the same.

More lighting. Indicative of my other decorating desire, a standing lamp since a single light bulb doesn't quite cut it on long winter nights.

The best design in the design showroom? Shelves and shelves containing individual description cards for each of the items sold.

Thanks so much for inviting me, Ruth!
