New at Rifle Paper Co

Morning! I hope everyone had a fantastic long Easter break. We visited seaside towns Margate and Ramsgate for the first time this weekend – towns which are swiftly filling up with trendy Londoners who have moved down – bought huge houses by the beach and are living the dream – tempting… I’ll be publishing a design guide later this […] Read more…

Ferm Living Scenes of Splendour

It’s impossible to hide the name of this brand from you because for practical reasons the title says it all but if I didn’t know better I would never have guessed this new collection of homeware featuring iridescent antiqued dishes, speckled cast iron kitchen accessories – and pretty vintage floral cushions were from Danish brand Ferm Living who […] Read more…

Jonathan Adler: Futuristic Glamour

I spent a rare day in West London yesterday – Notting Hill actually, which if you live in East London is like exploring the other side of a sparkling, Farrow and Ball coated, blossom adorned alternative universe. I was walking on air along Ladbroke Grove soaking up the beautiful windows and as I passed the one […] Read more…

Rattan Roundup & 21 Cane Cuties

I think it’s time I wrapped up this rattan obsession once and for all (pun sort of intended). Cane, rattan and wicker are absolutely everywhere and I have yet to meet any interiors fan that does not go into meltdown when they see an image of a cane object on Instagram. I saw smatterings of it years […] Read more…

Ooooh New Baggu!

I don’t tend to write about fashion accessories on the blog but if you don’t know about this brand already – they are a game changer for your lifestyle. I discovered BAGGU about 8 years ago – a New York based brand they started off small with a single nylon shopping bag – which was inspired […] Read more…

Bridget Bodenham Australian Ceramics

I don’t tend to use phrases like ‘crushing on’ but if I ever let my preconceptions about this phrase slide – this is an instance that I would be using it. I haven’t talked about Australian ceramics a lot on this blog – i don’t know why – they are great – and being a […] Read more…

10 Organic & Monochrome Pieces from Zara Home

Fringed Floral Placemat (set of 2) £11.99 Sometime’s Zara Home slips off my radar for a while – they’re not that big on advertising – although they have some amazing lookbook campaigns and the home business seems to take a backseat to their main ( 68 Zara stores vs 13 Zara Home’s in the UK). However once […] Read more…

New Delft: Story Tiles

I forgot how relentless the trade show reporting side of my job can be. I wrote this post exhausted, in February when I had just returned the previous evening from a flying visit to Ambiente in Frankfurt – the biggest trade exhibition for tabletop and home accessories. I had walked ten huge halls each the size […] Read more…

Sainsbury’s New Restoration Collection

You could be forgiven for thinking this image is from a ‘Mid-century California’ Pinterest board. The trailing plant and minimal kitchen with retro vibes particularly alludes to this but for me it was those smooth and weighty ceramic storage jars with the lovely oak lids that said “those look just like those elusive and expensive Heath Ceramics […] Read more…

New Shop To Watch : Handpicked By Kate

I get a lot of emails from new homeware shops introducing themselves. I like to support small businesses as I have one myself and it’s exciting to get access to businesses in their early days without all the bells and whistles of commercial thinking which can lead to things feeling a little homogeneous. At this […] Read more…
