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…

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…

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…

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…

I Love Conran’s 2017 Collection for M&S

I remember when the first Terence Conran for Marks and Spencers collection came out in 2011, the limited range of products felt a little conceptual in comparison to the rest of M&S’s Homeware in store at the time (take a look at the slideshow here). There was a glass dome with a thick black base that was […] Read more…

India Travels: Nicobar

So the name on everyone’s lips across the Arabian Sea is Nicobar, a gorgeous new fashion and home label set to define the ‘modern Indian voice’ by the geniuses at Good Earth (an iconic Indian home-store). The new label combines a whimsical aesthetic with contemporary pieces inspired by India – think diaphanous Kurta style dresses with inky blue […] Read more…

Glad Tidings: Homeware with Feelings

Somehow the festive season and a marked ending of a year brings out sentiment and poetry in all of us. During this time, I’m partial to accessories adorned with whimsical words and phrases that enhance the excitement of the season, warm the cockles and spread good cheer. Christmas entertaining to me is about building the […] Read more…
