Lampshades, life and other stuff
We're in the midst of a major decluttering phase at That's Not My Age Mansions - at present, every time I meet a friend, I offload a bag of my unwanted tat. This appears to be part of a larger bid to sort my life out - more of which at a later date - but as the bigger issues are more difficult to manage, I've started organising the smaller stuff instead. Now I've got rid of the superfluous clothes, I've turned my attention to the spare room. This is the place where the Blog Widower stores his books, clothes and Rolling Stones memorabilia - and more importantly, where That's Not My Age happens.
At London Design Week recently, I met the lovely people from Lane - a small company run by a couple of graphic designers whose aim is to produce beautiful products and support British craftmanship. These neat lampshades are made in one of the last remaining paper mills in the country. As TNMA Mansions has a bit of a mid-century modern feel, I think a colourful lampshade would look good in the spare room/nerve centre of blogging. Can't decide between the red or the green - that's another thing about midlife, I've become incredibly indecisive. What do you think?
