Picked from Stylesight’s SS15 directions, these images grabbed my attention for their graffiti overlays and bright colour clashes.
Louis Poulsen’s pendent lamps get appropriated by KML design, and the dripped colour and painted artwork of Rowena Martinich is a fantastic contrast to the polished concrete and white modernist interior of the rest of this apartment space by Clare Cousins Architects

Dutch Design at Via Tortona during Milan Design Week 2014 gives me the impression of a softly moving cloudy sky, with a touch of gilding to catch the eye.

A continuation of my indulgence into functional utensils.  This time prepare yourself for the finely made steel peelers in differing widths from French brand Malle W Trousseau, whose curate objects are inspired by the old-fashioned tradition of passing on pre-loved kitchenware. Available from Merci Paris and Selfridges London

Utensils to covet.  For every day.  Sensible, functional, beautiful.
Handmade cutlery by Rieko Fujimoto, a craftsperson who creates metal implements in Osaka Japan.  Read more about her technique on the OEN blog who sell her work.
Another piece of Japanese artisan sculpture that’s singing out to be clipped onto a key ring and pulled out at opportune picnic moments is the Waku brass-brutalist bottle opener.  Available from the emporium of utility that is Objects of Use, Oxford
And two knives with two uses.  Ox horn spreaders, from Objects of Use again, are totally up my street. No plastic involved, these British-made knives are haptically pleasing, and an antidote to generic cutlery.
Secondly, and ideally made for the daily routines of food preparation, the classically simple wooden butter knife.  These Finnish examples are hand-designed by Ina Herkert, individually made from rowan wood, they’re available via nämä shop - a online craft store from Ruth Landesa
