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…

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…

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…

It made me appreciate the delicacy of working with porcelain and the care that goes into it. Seemingly following my train of thought a set of new espresso cups from Nina Campbell […] Read more…

Heals Modern Craft Market 2016

Craft. The interiors magazines, those homely BBC design shows and our favourite high street shops, we just can’t seem to get enough of it –  the way a rough hand-thrown mug feels in our hands and the way a handwoven cushion looks on our sofa… Since I began work in the trends industry many years […] Read more…

Scandinavian Style at M&S

As the nights draw in quicker each day and we hurry home to hunker down for the evenings, we might consider taking our cue from the Scandinavians who use clean silhouettes and lighter tones to combat the darkness. Anyone who reads my blog regularly will know I have a very soft spot for high street homewares […] Read more…

5 Things to Buy from Habitat’s A/W 15 Collection

I always come back to Habitat. To the layman the brand appears seemingly dimmed from its halcyon days but in reality is shining steadfastly and in my opinion better than ever. The in-house design team is enviously talented, the collections just as striking as always and most importantly the prices better than ever. The brand’s Autumn Winter collection is […] Read more…
