I know, I know. I was just saying how I liked my colors moody and now I’m back to bright white but you know what, this lighting, the pleasantly over-the-top cowhide and these lovely realistic wallpapers are also on my radar this week too and all are from Mineheart… I adore the idea of wooden planks or paneled walls but c’mon! How can most of us accomplish that on a budget? The answer is to go faux and I’m liking the idea because sometimes if you can’t make it then your only choices are to either save up or in decorating at least – to fake it!






Mineheart is basked in the UK and was launched a few years ago by Brendan Young and Vanessa Battaglia, the two designers behind Studiomold and Young & Battaglia in Cambridgeshire. I love their style and edgy vibe – cool, creative, forward… The pendant light with the painting on the bottom is something I would definitely consider owning. I think though that lots of their papers and lights would be amazing in a cafe or retail space. I can see it now…

If you like what you see above you can view more in their online store here.
