Enhancing everyday living...

As my final article in the ‘Home and Happiness’ series I thought I would focus on everyday items that make you smile and how even the smallest things can enhance everyday life…

What better way to start the day than with a mug that makes you giggle every time you use it! I love these mugs by Peter Ibruegger, which allow you to effortlessly masquerade behind a character moustache while drinking your favourite tea or coffee.

And how about pouring your milk from one of these porcelain takeaway milk carton jugs from Seletti

Or storing your eggs in what look like the throwaway egg trays made of porcelain again by Seletti.

Another everyday item that has just had a revamp is the light blub by Plumen, not only is this bulb beautifully designed it is also environmentally friendly using 80% less energy and lasts 8 times longer than incandescent bulbs. Giving us two reasons to smile as it saves the environment and replaces the ghastly looking energy saving bulbs we have all had to use to date.

So it is possible to add an element of design to your home in the simplest of ways and at the same time to make yourself smile on a daily basis!
