HOT BUY: Typewriter stickers

February 17, 2010

Ever wished your laptop was as pretty as a vintage typewriter? I love oldskool typing, but when it comes to sending emails, surfing the net or saving work, clearly a rickety old Corona is not much help. Laptops are practical, but they just aren’t romantic. At a typewriter, I’m a 1940s novelist – glamorous, calm, creative – with red lipstick and pearls. At my laptop, I’m just another stressed-out caffeine-fuelled Londoner with deadlines and slow broadband. Enter, stage left, the tonic to all my woes…vintage typewriter stickers to vintage-ify your laptop! (APPLAUSE AND CHEERING)

Ok, so it’s a little weird. And not QUITE the same as a real typewriter. But fix the stickers either side of your mouse pad and cover the letter keys and it’s as good as it’s gonna get, folks. A set of stickers is £14.95 from Rockett St George, which has lots of other lovely new buys to check out, too…

This elegant cutlery looks ceramic, but it’s plastic – posh picnic cutlery. I LOVE it – it’s perfect for weddings/parties/packed lunches…

And have a peep at these stylish LONDON KILLS ME cushions and slate place mats. A bit Charlene Mullen-esque me thinks – VERY nice.

Rockett is also stocking some new glass chemistry flask ‘vases’ (on the right) which would look cool filled with flowers. I recently did a little photo shoot for Ideal Home with a glass chemistry beaker as a pen pot (see left!) so perhaps Science-Lab-Chic is on the horizon…?! Worth noting: you can buy inexpensive lab equipment from a school supplier if this funky look tickles your fancy!

Finally, check out this stunning Ostrich wallpaper, from Turner Pocock at Rockett. So fabulous. As is the gorgeously-worn-yet-beautiful-in-a-shabby-chic-way pink chair in this shot. ‘Enough!’ she cried, ‘TOO much temptation for one morning’! And anyway, when the first person to third person switch occurs, it’s often a sign it’s time to wrap things up, she thought to herself. – Ellie
