Mini Margate + Ramsgate Guide

A few weekends ago – Easter weekend actually – the three of us visited Margate and Ramsgate for the first time and fell in love with it’s vintage seaside allure. Amongst the exodus of Londoners moving to the rapidly gentrifying ‘Kent Riviera’ as it’s fast becoming known – many of our friends have moved down from […] 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…

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 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…

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…

Habitat Blogger Dinner + Christmas Gift Guide

Nothing beats filling your boots on festive spirit in London’s West End – the show-stopping windows, million dollar Christmas lights and the fact it’s never quite as cold as the rest of the city in winter because of the sheer density of shops and people looking for a good time! For me – Tottenham Court Road has always been my […] Read more…

My Top Drawer Highlights 2016

Ah September, it’s that whirlwind month in the calendar when the design industry descends on London town for a fortnight-ish of product launches, glitzy parties, catch ups with old friends and new design discoveries – everyone runs around like their *** is on fire but it’s all actually really fantastic – and inspiring. Kicking off my […] Read more…

The New Industrial, High Street Hits

I rarely wish that my interior style was other than it is (warm, modern and a little bit luxurious) but recently i’ve been wishing my taste was more industrial. I love the materials and textures used in this trend and how hairpin black metal legs, pale worn wood, eroded steel coupled with hunks of veined marble and delicate orbs of […] Read more…
