Homeless no more!

For all of last week we were technically homeless. Prior to that I spent a week in bed with laryngitis whilst my flat mate knocked down walls in the flat... What fun. I have never been so stressed out and miserable in my life (for which I am sure the boy will vouch). Thanks to the hospitality and all round loveliness of friends I didn't have to resort the cardboard box fort, but it does feel so so good now to have the keys to the new place. Even if we are now living surrounded by unpacked boxes.

Sadly, the ideal scenario of redecorating before we moved in was never to be. We have a few more weeks wait before the sale is completed and I can get at the paints. This does however mean that I have plenty of time to consider the colours... and a small spree in the Habitat sale has temporarily sated my urges to buy house things.

I am in love with my new Kura origami lamp shade 

But I have some projects in mind for the other pendant shades required. I think this should be easy enough to recreate:

And I'm thinking about something inspired by this scrap paper light, by Gabrielle Guy as featured on Design*sponge.
