New Shop to Watch: Curious Egg

Daily and often hourly, a lot of homeware passes my eyes and my inbox – mostly beautiful but not always original enough to make me do a double take. The Curious Egg is one such store that did. Founded by artist and sculptor Lorraine Aaron the store combines her unique eye with a curation of […] Read more…

Illustrating Dutch Interiors: Saar Manche

Something you didn’t know about me. I have been an amateur illustrator my whole life. I drew spidery sketches of fashionable ladies from the moment I could hold a pen, i filled pads with drawings of detailed faces with large eyes and long flowing hair well into my teens and as I developed an interest […] Read more…

New Obsession: Rose and Grey

This post is one where I seriously considered not sharing my finds with you guys because I wanted to keep them a secret just for myself, but the brand in question has above 50K followers on their social networks combined so I guess that ship has sailed! Rose and Grey are officially my current homeware obsession – […] Read more…

5 Things To Buy This Season at West Elm

Regular readers will know that I love all things West Elm – the US furniture brand that landed on our shores in the winter of 2013 (I think its fair to say I was more excited about the store’s opening day as I was about my baby’s due date not long after…). Resplendent online and […] Read more…

5 Places to Buy Vintage Portraits

As far back as I can remember I have been drawn to the mysterious allure of vintage portraits. There’s something thrillingly intimate about having an anonymous likeness of someone from the past just hanging about your home. There is also a well-documented rumour in my family of an enormous oil painting of my maternal great-great-grandparents languishing in […] Read more…

An Ode to Faux Florals

Four years ago if I had walked into someone’s home and seen a vase of fake flowers my eyes would have widened and I would have directed an exaggerated ‘lets get out of here, these people are cray-cray’ expression at my husband who would have had no idea what that side-eye was about and carried on socialising happily […] Read more…

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…
