"Home is any four walls that enclose the right person"


That quote, from American writer and humorist Helen Rowland, encapsulates much of what Idyll Home works towards - helping people to make their house a home. "Walls" have been a common theme this week - embarking on a personal redecorating project on the one hand and posting to the Idyll Home Facebook page on the other.

Another American cultural heavyweight, the architect Frank Lloyd Wright once wrote, "Pictures deface walls oftener than they decorate them". How to square the circle then? What other ways are there to beautify your wall spaces and build on the concept of "home" into the bargain? It set me thinking...

Wall Lights

However you choose to decorate and adorn your walls, you'll want to light it well - and if the wall lights you find just happen to be gorgeous in their own right....well that's worth a little smile isn't it?

A little modern luxury from a stunning black and copper wall light, or a touch of traditional elegance in a plisse silk shade, and your wall's starting to looking smarter already!

Wall Hangings

Whether or not you think Frank Lloyd Wright had a point, perhaps we can use our walls to create mental pictures themselves. An inspirational motto could be just the thing to spark the imagination, or a conversation:

Wooden board with "happiness" motto








and while you take that message on board - it could be time for a spot of reflection;

Wall Mirrors

"Mirror, mirror on the wall..." - which is the fairest of them all?

OK, for fear of sending you 'up the wall' with any more quotes, I'll park my thoughts about walls and quickly tell you that in our next blog we'll be looking at some lovely new items we've sourced from the Himalayas - but that's all I can tell you for now, as you know what they say about walls and ears don't you?!

  • Afternoon Idyll Homes,

    I have a customer interested in the Black Shade Wall Light shown above, and was wondering if you are able to tell me where I cah purchase from? I work for an Electrical Wholesaler called City Electrical Factors, and need to order within my purchasing network.

    Any help would be most appreciated.
