Pedlars magic

May 6, 2009

Quirky mail order company Pedlars has a knack of stocking everything that I dream of owning, and the new spring collection is as lovely as expected.

The ultimate designer desk for 2009. Anglepoise lamp? Check. Vintage globe? Check. ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ mug? Check. Funky wall sticker? Check. Vintage marmalade jar used as a pen pot in an oh-so-cool way? Check. If my desk looked like this, I’d get more work done, I’m sure…

FUN print, £75, Pedlars

Following on from yesterday’s post about circus fonts, this new FUN print couldn’t be more on-trend. Love it! Even though it’s May, I’ve got a thing for this fabulous reindeer oil cloth too, which proves that reindeers are for life, not just for Christmas:

More Cool Britannia buys here for flag fans. Like them or loathe them, you can’t escape Union Jack designs this summer! Luckily, I’m loving this look and have even draped Union Jack bunting around my bedstead, much to my other half’s chagrin. (He muttered something rude before sulkily accepting the shabby chic vibe and the fact that his home now resembles some kind of crazy village fete, circa 1950. He’s well trained.)

So many lovely things. Have a look at the full collection on the Pedlars website, and you can ogle the lovely cluttered home of founders Charlie and Caroline Gladstone in this Guardian article. – Ellie

Mmmmm, I’m just fantasising about how cool the Birds on a Wire sticker would look in my bedroom… sometimes this job is so hard. Too much temptation! Let me know your thoughts…are you bird-obsessed, too? – Ellie
