Sitting under the twinkling lights of a tree, hot chocolate in hand, we've designed a special festive background for your phone or computer. Inspired by cool winter hues of frosty skies, eucalyptus sprigs, steamy windows at winter parties, and one of our fave classic Christmas tunes. Hope you're rocking round the tree this year!

Monochrome Moment

We're slowing slipping into Winter, with the last of the crunchy leaves on the ground and endless chilly days as an excuse to light the fire. The studio is a buzz of christmas shop preparations and we're counting down the days to December and Christmas Party time.

In a monochrome moment we've gone for black and white in our mood board for November. We're loving the all black interiors, perfect home inspo. White ink on black is one of our favourite combinations when we're working in the studio - reminding us of starry night skies and glowing constellations. Birthday love to the brave and passionate Scorpio babes for Oct/Nov too!

Monthly Moonshine #4

For October, we're serving up Spiced Cider Margarita's and they're giving us all the Autumn vibes. 

We never say no to a margarita - in any variety - so wanted to share this recipe to swap sour with spicy and salty with sweet!

CRISP & COSY OCTOBER

We're fully embracing the crisp Autumn days and the naturally beautiful colour palette this season brings with it. There's so much to look forward to over the coming months, giving a special mention to Halloween parties, new winter wardrobes, red wine + pub fires and gorgeous crisp mornings.  At the moment we're just drooling over deep oranges, dark greens + earthy hues.

 Wrap up warm, light candles, carve pumpkins and enjoy the chilly October days.

Monthly Moonshine #3

You don't have to be more than 5 minutes into a brisk countryside walk to find a bramble bush bursting with blackberries at this time of year. They're sharp, sweet and juicy and the perfect addition to autumn recipes. Some eat them as they come, some add them to an apple crumble, we add a glug of gin, a drop of syrup and a slash of lemon juice to create a Blackberry Bramble cocktail. 

Ingredients 60ml Dry Gin 30ml Blackberry Liquor (optional) 30ml simple syrup/maple/agave 45ml lemon juice Ginger Beer or Soda Instructions - Serves 3-4 - In a cocktail shaker, muddle blackberries with gin, blackberry liquor, lemon juice and syrup until broken up and they release their juice. Double strain, using a fine mesh strainer, to remove the seeds.  Fill 3-4 glasses with ice, pour the blackberry-gin mix and top with soda or ginger beer. Garnish with a blackberry and lemon zest, if desired.

SEPTEMBER SHADES

With Summer waving what seemed like a very swift goodbye, we're coming round to embracing autumn tones and slightly cooler weather (even if it's a little bit too soon if you ask us!).

We're loving sage green and deep plum shades at the moment, drawing colour inspo from the changing leaves for our moodboard. We're looking forward to seeing all the autumn wedding styling this season, the glow of twinkling lights and candles, autumnal blooms against a mix of vibrant and subtle warm shades. We're also celebrating kind and hard-working Virgo babes, all the birthday love.

Enjoy September, appreciate the turning leaves, pick apples, plums and blackberries straight from their stalks and embrace the changing seasons.

GET SHIT DONE

In the true spirit of September we're eager to get organised. With the Summer months coming to an end, September always comes with that 'back to school' feeling, so it's a perfect excuse to do some serious life admin, write endless to-do lists and and buy new stationery... (not that we ever need an excuse!) 

To help you get organised, we've designed a motivational desktop background to help give you that much needed inspo boost when you really need it.

Postcards From... Beach London

With the late afternoon sunlight beaming into the bright Beach London space, we laid out calligraphy kits, prepped postcards and popped prosecco ready for the arrival of our workshop guests.

Taught by Lamplighter founder, Chiara Perano, our workshops are fun, relaxing and perfect for any level of skill when it comes to calligraphy. Chiara talks you through everything, from holding the pen the correct way to adding flourishes once you're getting into the swing of things. She's also there to answer any questions and help you throughout, sharing her tips and tricks along the way. 

Calligraphy Kit

Time for Postcards! Short but sweet messages to loved ones ready to be popped in our postbox and sent off. There's something so special about receiving hand written post, we want to hold on to that magic at Lamplighter. 

We wrapped up our evening and sent the postcards on their way to put a smile on someones face. 

If you missed out on this workshop, don't worry! We'll be announcing another workshop very soon...

Monthly Moonshine #2

During the Summer months, we're all about drinking Frosé. Yep, frozen rosé... an absolute dream, right?!

Masterminded in a very cool Italian pasta shop in New York, combining ever popular rosé and the childhood memories of fruit slushies, Frosé is a Summer sensation and London is finally hopping on the bandwagon ~ we hope. Until then we'll be making it from home - sweet notes of Rosé, a squeeze of lemon, frozen strawberries and a splash of vodka. It's naughty, nice, nostalgic, and perfect.
