Kimono Lamps in House and Home Magazine!

Page 113, Summer issue of the House and Home Magazine – Ireland’s best selling interiors magazine and an invaluable source book for interior design and decoration.

Silky glossy; freshly printed,and cut – still has that gorgeous smell of a new book about it.

I picked it up from a shelf in the Book Centre in Waterford and telling the world about it since.

Happy Summer reading everyone!


Made it to The Sunday Times!

It’s true! The first ever press mention and it’s already all over Ireland (and hopefully the UK)

It has made my day this gloomy, windy Saturday, when even my favourite strawberry cream cupcake (from Cupcake Heaven market stall in Waterford city) couldn’t. Someone sent me an e-mail enquiry about the lampshade they saw a week before in The Sunday Times home section. Imagine my jaw drop!

Don’t know about you but before I got married and had a baby getting out of bed to get the weekend paper to read it back on the couch undisturbed for the rest of the morning (while maybe feeling a little uneasy about still being single at the time) with fresh breakfast rolls used to be such a treat! One of those maiden lifestyle things you just can’t recreate later. That is the reason I so profoundly missed this much desired publication.

I investigated all weekend papers from the previous week in the Waterford City Library but it was neither in the Independent, the Examiner nor in the Irish Times. It finally dawned on me that it must have been the UK Sunday Times. Which wasn’t kept in the library. But a desperate facebook appeal sorted me quickly as Kimono Lamps fan Niamh Doherty had it. You’re looking at her copy scanned above.

And it’s all thanks to Dara Flynn, who’s also the general editor of House and Home magazine. I hope a couple of girls out there enjoyed their Sunday paper that morning. Because I certainly would have!
