Houses (in the UK) don't get much more distinctive than this Peter Aldington-designed modernist property in Higham, Colchester, Essex.
Perhaps now is not the peak time for buying brooches, which I tend to associate with decorating winter coats rather than summer clothes, but these Wooden Vintage Fashion Lady Brooches still seem worth mentioning.
Whilst energy saving bulbs make perfect sense on paper, their functional appearance and the dim light they emit can be rather disappointing. This Vintage Diamond Light Bulb however, will do justice to any retro-styled room.
It's a 15 watt halogen screw-fit bulb in diamond cut clear glass which gives it a lovely vintage lustre and bright, warm glow.The bulb isn't cheap at £29, but that will last you 2000 hours. It also comes in a rather lovely retro-style box – a world away from functional supermarket bulbs.
You can buy it online from Cow & Co – take a closer look here.
