Welcome to this week’s eclectic home tour! This home belongs to Costume designer Leonie Hartard and has a quirky, fun, eclectic style that I love. The house situated in St Leonards-on-Sea, has been her home for nearly two years. This home has a character and attention to details, with just the right pop of color in each room.
Leonie says she is drawn to mid-century design with a good strong pop of color and her overall goal with her space was to create something eclectic and full of character. Using a mix of found, collected or purchased pieces, primarily from vintage and thrift shops, Leonie has created a home that is comfortable and stylish, but also cozy and unpretentious. Read More

The special, limited edition of this famous light will be available to order in the period 1 March through 30 May 2014. A brilliant opportunity to give yourself a unique and beautiful lamp not everyone has!
Louise PH 3 ½-3 copper pendant is based on Poul Henningsen’s original drawings. Designed in 1929 and one of the first products in Poul Henningsen’s world-famous PH system, which was based on the 3-shade principle. A great deal of attention has been devoted to detail in this product. For example, the light features the original type of screen holder with the adjuster screws. The top shade has a rolled edge that makes the shade appear thicker than the actual material – it involves a traditional method that is still performed by hand at Louis Poulsen. Read More
