Just what the doctor ordered. A massive dose of Vitamin C(olour) to get us through grey and dreary March, although the sky is actually blue today – yay!
This injection of energising brilliance comes courtesy of Derbyshire-based lighting company Curiousa & Curiousa who have shot these gorgeous new images of their hand-blown glass lights, and also brought out a new range of bathroom lights.
These amazing photos with their simple (but oh so effective) paint effects on the wall that frame and highlight the light fittings have really got my imagination fired up. What a fantastic way to add interest to a blank wall and create a stunning visual display.
Curiousa & Curiousa bathroom lights
The new range of Curiousa & Curiousa bathroom lights are adaptations of Curiousa’s award-winning glass pendant lights. This means they’re IP44 rated and can be used in zones 2 and 3 in your bathroom (you can find more information about bathroom lighting zones here).
The choice of shapes includes Pear Drop, Strial, Bowl, Teardrop and Round in any of 21 glass colours, teamed with a fabric coated flex and a choice of four metal fitting finishes.
I think the IP44 Bubble above is my favourite of the Curiousa & Curiousa bathroom lights range – it’s that very special orange/red and blue combination that I can never resist.
Because each piece is individually hand-made, if you can’t find exactly what you want on the website bespoke items can be created for your home to your own personal specifications.
And Curiousa & Curiousa also welcome larger commissions for commercial projects such as hotels, restaurants, bars and spas – there’s a short piece on their blog about the striking contemporary bespoke lights they created for one of the bars at Ragdale Hall.
Visit www.curiousa.co.uk to see the entire range and for more information on ordering and buying – or even just to get an extra dose of re-energising colour therapy and admire the craftsmanship and creativity that goes into these exquisite lights.
Wishing you a colourful and relaxing weekend.
