Remember these?:

& these:

Quite possibly thats why you are here in the first place! (the traffic I get to this blog still from when I posted about these back in June 2010 is huge!)

Well the UK-ian hottie responsible for such clever up-cycling has just launched his new of lighting which includes these crystal globes.

So pretty.

I predict a Pintrest Melt down!

And before you ask:

No, I dont know how to get the bottoms off or how to get the globes in. I leave it to the people who do!

Lee Broom is the dude in the know!




As it was, and so it is

With my long absences from Designalogue, I kinda feel the need to prove that I am indeed keeping busy and not just ignoring the blogosphere.

So here is the proof. Some before and after pictures of recent projects:

um. In case you are wondering – This most certainly is a before shot.

And then after:

Bedroom before:

And yes. that IS a poem on the wall. (no apology from me for the blurryness of the picture -something about poems on walls gives me the shakes!)

Bedroom After:

The bedroom chandelier is a pretty special peice made from walnut and brass and uncovered in a marked in Italy by the clever Nicholas & Alistair

Now I’m on the blogging roll….onto another project:

A large living room that was quite open to the street and barren of furniture and personality:

(oh the red thing is not a vase or decoration…thats my handbag!)

And after….

That’s all from me for now. But I will be back tomorrow to share something else I’m quite excited about!

Crystal clever

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

I just spied this over at HD Inspirations Blog and felt the need to on share the cleverness:  Real crystal decanters used  as pendant lighting at the Conquine Bar in London.

Just goes to show pretty much anything can be made into an awesome light fitting!

When the lights go out

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

Where ever you live on the planet earth, at 8.30pm this Saturday it is Earth Hour.

So in preparation for an hour with the lights out, its candle time! What be more appropriate than this gorgeousie light globe candle from Queen B candles!

(Oh, and And just so you know it is even more perfect as its a non toxic emitting candle made from beeswax not paraffin like most other candles available – loving the Queen B candles!)

And the teacup candles are a bit special too!

I want me some!

Moving on and slacking off.

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

Its been very quiet here at Designalogue Blog of late. Ive been quite preoccupied with end of year clienty things as well as packing up and moving house and office. 

So I’m taking a quick break – ok, I’m slacking off, from hauling boxes from one place to another as I need me a quick look at some pretty! 

These super cute ‘tea lights’ from Melbourne artist Gregory Bonasera will do the trick! 


I think these tea cup lights are super cute and I love the idea of using Nana’s precious tea cups as a chandy! I’m hoping to use them in a project coming up in the new year – so we will see! 

More info on Gregory Bonasera here.


Well, back to shuffling boxes for me! I will be back and posting soon from my fabulous new office! 



A little light on the subject

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

I think I might start petitioning my landlord to install a swimming pool in my back garden – purely so I can have these uber cool floating lights by Spanish groovies Metalarte.  



I don’t think that would be extravagant or over the top in the slightest!!!?!

I just gotta have it!

Friday, September 19th, 2008

So very near the top of my “I just gotta have” list, (yeah, you KNOW you got one too!) are these gorgouesies: Sculptures by day, light sculptures by night – SO fabulous!! I love love LOVE them! and I want want WANT!!

Made and designed here in Melbourne town by the very clever Chris and Timothea at Lump Sculpture Studio.

Aah, they are SO beautiful! see for yourself, I know you’ll agree!!




These are some I’ve just had installed in a clients courtyard. That’s definitely another perk of this job! – I get to live out things I love in others houses!!!

Bleu Nature

I am loving the new lighting collection of French company Bleu Nature.

Their use of ‘un-tamed’ materials such as driftwood and petrified wood create such beautiful and unique furniture and lighting.
