Home Inspiration 2

I am sure you have seen some of her creations in your favourite interior design magazines, or even in crafts magazines... Jan Constantine does deserve an entry in my blog. I am into vintage - British style for the new house (the old flat was yuppie-financial district, black/red/silver, and this is not 'homely' enough for a certain husband of mine, only problem he cannot define what is homely for him!). Here is one of her famous cushion cover.

Jan’s designs are hand worked on natural cottons linens and wools. The felted wool work is perfect for some Christmas decorations. Needless to say the price is a bit above my budget. But do not fear, she has also published
a book, that I bought and is very user-friendly with lovely designs, and you can now make your own Jan Constantine's cushion covers, or blanket, or bag or... well whatever you fancy really (there are some cool Christmas projects).

Apart from drooling over other people's designs, I have some projects on the go... but sadly no picture at the moment. There is crochet blanket, a scarf for M (that is manly enough for him to approve of - he is SO difficult) and a quilt I started 10 years ago (at least) and that I intend to finish soon.... All coming soon.

  1. Oooh, thanks for sharing more home inspiration! Though it does make me wish I had a bit bigger home improvements budget. Sigh. Can't wait to see your projects!


Thanks for leaving a comment, I love reading them. I usually reply to comments, unless you are a nonreply- blogger.
