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…

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…

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…

New Kitchenware Collection from DeVOL

Over the last decade I’ve had one luxury kitchen brand that i have been steadfastly faithful to. It’s been my lottery win kitchen… my forever kitchen… but last year I was blindsided by another who has taken it’s place – the whole thing is a little emotional and bittersweet if I’m honest. The new love […] Read more…

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…

Impressionist Nina Campbell Espresso Cups

Last night I watched the new BBC series Handmade By Royal Appointment – a behind the scenes look at the great pottery institution that is Wedgwood. 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…

Kate Spade Tableware at John Lewis

I’ve been a fan of preppy, whimsical and girly American brand Kate Spade for years now. Known for witty wordings, polka dot patterns and gilded details. Launching on the 15th of March is it’s first super-sweet tableware collection in the UK with John Lewis. I guess what has always attracted me to the brand is […] 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…
