Amazing 60s home deco by Jane Foster

I’m a huge fan of designer Jane Foster and her amazing 50s, 60s and 70s inspired home deco. Jane designs, screen prints and sews from her studio in Devon using either vintage fabrics or her own designs.

Her apple and pear cushions are so amazing I drool over them in 5-minute intervals, not to mention the amazing toys and dolls she makes.

The 60s fringe is back

After growing out my long 60s-inspired fringe for the last year, I’ve finally relented and had it cut back in. I enjoyed having just plain old straight hair but it did look incredibly dull and a little to nondescript modern, so when I walked past my local salon Chaps & Dames and they could spontaneously fit me in, I just went for it. Ah, much better!

I totally watched too much 70s Sesame Street when I was a child because today’s outfit was definitely inspired by the kind of stuff the presenters would were.

Dream vintage: 1920s flapper dress

Yesterday it was my work’s Christmas do, a big Twenties style party at the beautiful Art Deco Battersea Power Station. And where was I? In bed clutching a hot water bottle while drinking cough medicine. K.O. by cold.

I was gutted, especially as the amazing Ellie of wonderful Nottingham vintage shop Darlings Vintage had lent me the most amazing Twenties dress I’ve ever seen. Nearly transparent, it’s a drop-waist gown with incredible beading details in nearly mint vintage condition. I had great fun trying it on at home but alas it never got its grand outing.

It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas

I’m not religious at all, but I love Christmas as great time of meeting old friends, admiring Christmas trees and eating lots of nice food. The Doc and I got our Christmas tree and deco up today, instant Christmassy-winter atmosphere.
