Perfectly Plain Rugs from Farrow and Ball

Have you ever seen something so simple that takes your breath away and in the same instance cannot believe that something so simple can indeed take your breath away? A company who have mastered the art of simplicity and attention to colour regularly tknocks me for a six is Farrow and Ball who have just taken their […] Read more…

A New Petersham Nurseries in Covent Garden

If you ask anyone West of the city about the perfect way to spend a weekend, the majority will clasp their hands and declare with a rapturous expression that it simply has to be a visit to the now iconic Petersham Nurseries in Richmond (it opened in 2004). Like something sprung from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the Nurseries […] Read more…

Watercolour Cactus Homewares from Bluebell Gray

This blog really shows its age when we can track the career trajectory of a well established brand by its fledgling beginnings here on The Beat That My Heart Skipped. Many years ago I used to run a feature called ‘A Day With’ where designers gave me an insight into their work day and studio life. In […] Read more…

House and Garden’s First Collection with Arlo & Jacob

I really have a thing for pattern clash English interiors these days, the likes of which you’d find in The World of Interiors or from traditional brands like Colefax Fowler, swoon over in the home of English interior designer Ben Pentreath – or in House and Garden in-fact. Could this be my ‘grown up style’ emerging? […] 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…

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…

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…

Ferm Living Scenes of Splendour

It’s impossible to hide the name of this brand from you because for practical reasons the title says it all but if I didn’t know better I would never have guessed this new collection of homeware featuring iridescent antiqued dishes, speckled cast iron kitchen accessories – and pretty vintage floral cushions were from Danish brand Ferm Living who […] 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…
