It must be something to do with the autumnal view (read horizontal rain) out of the Livingetc office window right now, but I am feeling very inclined to roaring fires, chestnuts, red wine, dark, cosy rooms and a small dog at my feet (I feel like that in summer, too, by the way). None of those things are at hand right now, but these animal lamps from Atelier Abigail Ahern, available at Rockett St George, are perfect for my Autumn Evening Dream and would set off deep, pigment-heavy wall colours a treat (this is a Livingetc favourite).
