inspirational: the new John Lewis Home catalogue

Next to my computer on the desk is the new and inspiring John Lewis Home catalogue that I have been enjoying since yesterday. It's beautifully styled and photographed; contains 116 ideas for spring and summer divided into a few chapters (I love the Cool Country one, it brings on an instant summer mood). There are also a few short interviews with various designers. I had to snap a few photos and share with you.

John Lewis opened the first store 150 years ago on Oxford Street in London and ever since it has been the go-to place for home and design lovers (luckily there's a store in my town!). I honestly think you can use John Lewis to measure your overall well-being: If you enter a John Lewis store and find the urge to pretty much buy every other item in there, that you will even consider chaining yourself to a shelf so no one can drag you out, I would say you don't have to worry at all. That's completely normal. You're fine! However, if you enter a John Lewis store and don't find five items to buy I would say you were in need of professional help. If you don't find a single item to buy you are past help. Go live in a cave!

Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. I so love John Lewis. I have heard that there is an English shop in Belgium, near Brussels, where you can order anything from the John Lewis home range and it will be delivered there!
