  • Spotlight on iPhone Docks

    There was a time when a mobile phone was a mobile phone but over the past few years they have developed into something much more than that. iPhones in particular have become iconic and today millions of people are accessing emails, browsing the internet and listening to music through iPhones on a daily basis.

    Using an iPhone in a dock is a great way to play music in your home but many docks can be unsightly. We decided to investigate if there are any docks out there which will allow you to play music from your iPhone without compromising the ascetics of your home. Here’s what we found…

    Below is the Megaphone from Italian design company En&is. The Megaphone acts as a ceramic amplifier for your iPhone or iPod and is a true example of functionality meets incredible design.

    This audio end table, available from West Elm, is perfect if you are looking for a dock which doesn’t look like a dock. This table charges your iPhone or iPod while playing your music and would blend seamlessly into a modern bedroom or living room.

    This eco-friendly dock from EPL Monkey is made from natural wood which is polished and buffed with beeswax. It doesn’t require any electricity as it simply works by amplifying the sound.

  • Nautical Bedrooms for Boys

    Kids grow up so quickly and as they grow their tastes change. Your son may be delighted with an In the Night Garden themed room when he’s a toddler but as soon as he feels he’s becoming a ‘big boy’ he’ll be unhappy with his ‘baby’ room.

    Of course you can redecorate every time he out grows his bedroom but this is expensive and time consuming. Alternatively you could pick a theme for your son’s room which he can grow with and love for years. A great option is a nautical theme as boys of all ages seem to love ships, sharks and pirates! The colour palette of reds, whites and blues are also generally well liked by boys.

    We think boys will love this shark bedding, pirate map mural and boat bed, all from Pottery Barn.

  • Spotlight on Clocks

    Having an unusual and beautiful clock on display is an easy and simple way to add personality to any room.

    For a grand, antique look head over to Swedish Interior Design and take a look at their beautiful Mora clocks. Each clock is unique and was handmade in Sweden during the 1800’s.

    For a modern take on the traditional cuckoo clock we love this Meridiana design which is available from My Marca. Don’t worry, the cuckoo is operated by a motion sensor controlled light and won’t come out of its house and wake you up during the night! It’s available in 13 different colours but we think the pink is our favourite.

    This elegant clock from Jazz It Up Interiors has a sophisticated, 1920’s art deco feel to it. It’s also available is silver.

    The next two clocks are perfect for kid’s rooms. The first is a “Stick and Play” clock from infamous Dutch designers Karlsson. We think this cool space design would please younger and older kids. This clock is available from Dot Maison.

    The second is the Tic clock from Diamantini and Domeniconi. This clock features a magnetic circle on which kids use wooden shapes to create a picture. This is a great clock for little people with big imaginations!

    Diamantini and Domeniconi also create fun and functional clocks for adults. Our favourites are the Tablio and Tablia which come with blackboard faces and chalk for writing messages. This video shows just how fun and versatile they are.

     

    Modern or antique, fun or functional, there's a clock out that will help enhance the design of your home.
