A Couple of New Things To Pick Up at Ikea

MYRHEDEN Frame/ Noticeboard £12 We all know that Ikea has nailed the home market for impulse buys. Who amongst us can admit that they have never raced around the aisles (I always seem to be on a deadline) throwing attractive looking items into their trolley like they were a contestant in a particularly frantic episode of […] Read more…

Art History Wallpapers from The Common Room

Before we turn that corner into Autumn, I’m just going to present some items that will help hold on to summer for just a little bit longer – namely a lovely new wallpaper brand discovery with some resplendent jungle prints found in the V&A Archives. The Common Room collaborates with artists to create irreverent vintage inspired wallpapers. […] Read more…

New Shop To Watch: The Apartment

Most days I think I’ve got a pretty good eye – looking at design differently to others, seeing details things others don’t. It gives me cause to feel quite smug about it really. Then, I stumble across another creative who just hits the ball out of the park with their taste level and ability to find beauty […] Read more…

Guest Post: Silversmith Hal Messel

Washington and Victoria Morris) so when I spotted these gorgeous speckled plates in a recent issue of Elle Decoration I had to double check that Minor Goods were indeed a UK brand – hooray! Designed in the […] Read more…

H&M Home’s Summer 17 Collection

Whenever I profess my love for H&M’s Homewear line, it’s almost always (in-fact always) guaranteed to be greeted with effusive agreement. H&M Home appeared in our landscape around 2008, where it remained fairly under the radar until recent years where the concession grew to take over entire levels of H&M stores and dammit now everyone knows […] Read more…

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…
