Jonathan Adler menagerie giant erasers

A menagerie for your desk

What a brilliant idea!

Jonathan Adler’s wonderful menagerie range have been transformed into giant erasers.

So if you can’t afford the original china versions, perhaps you could run to buying one (or two) of these!

Choose from the elephant, whale or turtle giant eraser, £12 each from Heal’s.

They’re definitely too nice to do any rubbing out with though – we’re keeping them as desk ornaments!

Hannah Turner blue crested ceramic bird

Hannah Turner bird

Yes, it’s another birdy piece. This one’s by Hannah Turner, a Bristol-based ceramicist, and almost looks like it could double up as a boomerang (although we don’t recommend that you throw it).

Oh no, it would be far better, and safer, to have it perched on a windowsill or bookcase, where it can look at you with its cheery beady eyes. 

Buy your blue crested bird from Liberty.

Finch paperweight

Finch paperweight

This sweet little silver bird paperweight would be just the thing for perching on your desk to hold down a few papers, or to have peeping out between books on your bookcase.

It’s only small in size – 14cm by 7cm – but sometimes you only need a small decorative item to add a bit of interest to a room and small can be beautiful.

The finch paperweight is silver in colour and made of ceramic and you can buy it from Oliver Bonas for the super value price of only £3.75. That’s a bargain if ever we saw one.

Add a splash of colour

If you’re looking to add a splash of colour to your home, then decorative accessories are great to use.

This red swirl bottle from Next, with its slightly orange swirls, would certainly give a good dose of colour and you could use it as a simple vase too, as a single stem would fit in really well.

The red swirl bottle costs £22 from Next.

Blue and white spice drawer

Small decorative spice drawers have been around for a while. Most are a bit folksy and shabby chic, but this blue and white spice drawer from Cargo would fit in better with a contemporary or modern home.

It’s made from painted white wood and has eight decorative drawers, many of which almost look like they’re black and white rather than blue. Whilst mostly a piece to have for decorative or ornamental purposes, it also serves a partially practical purpose with its useable drawers.

The blue and white spice drawer is available from Cargo for £25.
