A few weeks ago Matt & headed off to Grand Designs Live at the Excel as guests of Scandinavian furniture designers Ekornes, who make ‘stressless’ furniture. They are pictured above, and I can vouch for their cosiness. In fact, I almost snoozed in one of their chairs but I peeled myself out of it and explored the huge exhibition. I am a big fan of Grand Designs the TV show and I may or may not have quite a love for Kevin McLoud, who sadly I did not bump into. That would have been an Instagram to cherish wouldn’t it? Now, since I rent a shoebox in one of the most expensive cities in the UK, I’m not in the market to buy my own home, but I adore design and a girl can dream. As well as everything you’d need to build your own home and some fascinating talks on eco design, the exhibition space is full of cleaning technology, cars, pianos, bike racks, tree houses, and lots of demos. If you love homeware and have an interest in the TV show I highly recommend paying this a visit next time it rolls around, we had a great time!

    Those bike racks look frigging awesome. I just showed the picture of them to my boyfriend who is a cycling fanatic. He is very keen.
