Having made the roman blinds a while ago in the red gingham and I’ve painted the bookcase a turquoise colour, I still felt there wasn’t enough fun – and being a kid at heart, there needs be lots of that.
There are some brands that you love from the off, for me – Cable and Cotton are one of them because they are so distinctive. I first spotted their shop whilst wandering around Brighton a while back. I hadn’t thought of putting some of their fairy lights up to complete the makeover, don’t know why. But luckily, they very kindly contacted me recently to ask if I would like to try some out. So, I’ve placed them over my flamingo print from Etsy.
You can choose your own colours and length of lights at Cable and Cotton plus they also do sets with 20, 35 or 50 on a string. The ones I chose are Rainbow Drops.
If you are a regular reader, you will know that I do love a bit of fair trade, so am pleased to know that the lights are handmade in Thailand by skilled craftswomen who work in the lovely open air ! Making the lights for Cable and Cotton is ensuring a year round income for these people and their families .. and in fact an entire community. :)
