Toad-lamp-Timo-Himmee-styling-and-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell I absolutely adore Scandinavian design and was so pleased when Timo Niskanen the founder and designer of Himmee, asked me to do some styling shots for his Toad Lamp.

It was interesting to find out that the name came from Super Mario’s mushroom friend Toad.

I relished the challenge of styling this beautiful lamp so much, that I decided to do four looks.

The lamp is sleek and elegant. The opal glass hand blown, smooth to touch, and emits a soft diffused glow. The base is made of bent oak plywood.

I have styled look number one in pastel tones. Toad-lamp-Skandium-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell Love how you can place a decorative accessory into the base. The sweet and inspirational blue print is by Old English Company. Toad-lamp-Skandium-Little-Big-Bell Look number two started off with the idea of using a monochrome black and white palette, in line with a Scandinavian style.

But you know me, just can’t resist adding pops of colour. Toad-lamp-Himmee-styling-and-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell Making use of that little arch in the base of the lamp again. Toad-lamp-Timo-Niskanen-styling-by-Geraldine-Tan-Little-Big-Bell Now for a feminine touch. Pink and gold is my absolute favourite, so no surprises here in the styling. What do you think? Toad-lamp-Himmee-styling-by-Little-Big-Bell The Toad lamp can also be purchased in Skandium.

Hope you’ve enjoyed the post. Have a lovely start to your week.

Shore-projects-watch-2-Little-Big-Bell I thought it would be fun to show you a shoot that I styled and photographed recently for Shore Projects, a cool watch brand that is inspired by the beauty and fun of the British seaside. Shore-project-2-rose-gold-watch-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell The shoot’s theme was ‘Summer and Fun’ and was part of a campaign for Project 2, Shore Projects’s latest collection of four new watch faces.

The four new faces were in silver, gold, rose gold and black.

I picked the Rose gold face called Salcombe. The strap above is in Rose gold.

What’s cool about this watch is its innovative strap mechanism which allows for interchangeable straps.
Shores-project-watch-leather-strap-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell I wanted to create a Summer vintage feel here. Love the light against that lace dress with the Tan suede strap, Shore-projects-Little-Big-Bell and the striking pink Peonies contrasted against that 1960s blue laminate desk. Shore-projects-Salcombe-watch-Pistachio-strap-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell So, to me Summer and fun means bright yellow.

Here I’ve shot the Pistachio green polka dot strap against a beautiful yellow floral Summer skirt. The bright pink and powder blue of the book is just the perfect accent colour to show off the mint. Shore-projects-watch-Summer-fun-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell It was a sunny day with a clear blue sky, time to sunbath on the deck.
Shore-Project-2-watch-rose-gold-styling-and-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell I must admit, I have fallen in love with this watch.

Rose gold, mint and polka dots, such a great combination.  Shore-projects-baby-blue-watch-strap-Little-Big-Bell Seeing that it is now Summer, I thought it would be fun to use this cute dress with pastel ice cream cones in the shoot.

The watch strap is now a pretty powder blue. I loved matching that pop of orange in both the shoe and that sweet hand held rose.

I think the peach and orange tones really bring out the light blue of the strap. Shore-projects-baby-blue-Summer-fun-Little-Big-Bell Here’s another view. Shore-projects-Summer-florals-Little-Big-B That tint from the Rose gold really looks great with powder blue, don’t you think? Shore-projects-watch-straps-Little-Big-Bell Here they are all together with the interchangeable straps. Time for tea after a day’s shoot. Shore-projects-2-watch-styling-and-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell What’s great about this watch is that it is Unisex.  Shore-projects-straps-Little-Big-Bell Hope you’ve enjoyed my styling shots.

I never knew photographing watches could be tricky as you need to capture its details at particular angles and avoid reflection, but I had such a fun time doing this.

Wishing you a lovely week ahead.

Boy's_bedroom_makeover_on_Little_Big_Bell_blog On Saturday afternoon, after work, I decided I needed to unwind.

How best to do that than to do a bit of styling and redecorating in my son’s bedroom. So, here’s a 30 minute makeover!

Click here to see what his bedroom used to look like.

I went with a relaxed red and navy Breton look with accent colours of green and citrus hues.

Boy's_bedroom_Little_White_Company_by_Little_Big_Bell My son’s bed, Breton duvet cover, bed throw, red sriped cushion and storage bag are all from The Little White Company. 

The American Stars and stripes bag on the floor is from American Apparel and the Breton striped hoody is from Petit Bateau. Both of these items were bought a while ago, but I’m sure they will have similar online.

His green earphones are Urbanears, the red striped mug is Marimekko and the Apple Papple print over the bed is by Fine Little Day.

Boy's_bedroom_Little_White_Company_on_Little_Big_Bell Here’s M relaxing in his room. His top is Petit Bateau and jeans are by J. Crew.

Hope you like my 30 minute makeover. Have a wonderful start to your week. More exciting stuff to show you on the blog soon. Can’t wait! x
