Launching in July 2019 is Magpie’s new collection peanuts homewares inspired by the Charles M. Schulz comic strip.
Martha & Me is an online shop selling interiors and lifestyle pieces. Here, I interview founder Marcelle Chownes Dove
Today I’m sharing this beautiful collection of gifts for plant lovers. My own quest to make plants a reality, a true, living reality in my home continues. As you know, the body count in my plant cemetery is at critical mass, but I strive to find a way to incorporate our living friends into my
Two weeks ago I was invited to attend the opening of the new Bert & Buoy shop in Dartmouth. I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am that Bert has decided to open a shop in my home town. Dartmouth is an absolutely beautiful town with some wonderful little independent shops and I
When it comes to Instagram, I count myself as one of the lucky ones. Not because I have a huge following and can make money from my account, (far from it actually as I haven’t even reached 2000 followers yet) but because I don’t let myself get hung up on it and I don’t let
So I started this new series ‘Where to Shop‘ back in March with a view to doing it monthly. I just checked when I did the last one and it was April. I’m so sorry, I just don’t know where the time goes. I have so many things I want to write about that I
Back in September when I visited Maison & Objet in Paris, one of the standout companies that I came across was 3S design, a family-owned Slovenian company that specializes in architectural design, product design and manufacturing. When the newest generation of the family joined the metal workshop business, 25 years’ of experience took on a new
Over the past five years or so I have found myself increasingly featuring local companies here on the blog. I suppose this has been a conscious decision as I really do love living in Devon and like to champion local companies and designers where possible. When I first started my blog back in 2009 it
Today I’d like to share another exciting design find with you guys and this one is a lovely new company that has sprung up recently in Devon. Vincent Trading is run by Emma and Mike who make and sell beautiful handmade and reclaimed wooden items alongside beautiful gifts and homewares. Based by the sea in

She is also a columnist for the Metro and i newspaper and has over 14 years experience writing for consumer magazines like Ideal Home, House Beautiful, The English Home and Real Homes. I received this book to review
You may have noticed from quite a few of my product round-up posts that I’ve always been a bit of a fan of MADE.COM (affiliate). Ever since I first discovered MADE.COM back in 2010 and interviewed their co-founder Ning Lee in 2011, I have been a big fan of the company and the products that
The Denby Studio Blue Casual Dining Collection is a hand-crafted range of ceramics perfect for al fresco dining.
With all this summer sun and outdoor entertaining we’ve been doing lately I have been in my element. Having a beautiful garden space where we can welcome guests is such a novelty. We live in such a tiny little flat that entertaining inside is just totally impractical. It’s big enough for us and the kids
I absolutely love BBQ season. Now that we have a garden that is suitable for entertaining, we do it at every opportunity throughout the summer. Pretty much every time the weather forecast tells us it will be a lovely sunny evening, we call up our friends or family and get the wheels in motion. We
Natural materials is not a new trend I’m predicting by any means, however it is a strong trend at the moment so I figured it deserves its own post. I kind of covered it a little in my post about the Global Nomad trend, but the trend for natural materials in interiors could stand on
This post is the second post in my new series Where to Shop where I introduce you to some of my favourite homeware retailers. The first post featured Oliver Bonas and in today’s post I want to tell you all about a Danish retail chain called Søstrene Grene. The story of Søstrene Grene began in 1973 in
How is it midway through April already. January and February felt like the longest months I’ve ever experienced, probably due to the fact that we didn’t have a summer or autumn/winter holiday. In fact, the last time we went away on holiday was last April when we went to visit my husband’s family in Poland.
In my hunt for the most stylish candle holders around, I came across a real beauty from Ferm Living. When I was on the website I discovered the beautiful new Ferm Living SS 2018 Collection and I fell in love immediately. Ferm Living is one of those really aspirational home decor brands. They are instantly recognisable
I have the weirdest relationship with candles. I love how they look and I love the soft glow that they emit. I often find myself lusting over beautiful candle holders. However, I don’t really like burning candles in my own home. Firstly, I have small children so it would be far too dangerous to have
It’s Friday and you may have noticed that things are looking a little different around here. I am so pleased to share my redesigned blog and branding with you. I hope you like the changes that I’ve made and that you can still find your way around. I’m still making tweaks here and there so
Photo by Annie Spratt on Unsplash For years and years, my husband and I lived with no photographs or art work on our walls. (I’ve explained before about my previous inability to commit to choosing artwork). We just never got around to putting up any nice photographs and it’s not that we didn’t have nice photos to display,
*Faux Plants from Cox & Cox* Have you already decided on a Mother’s day gift? If not, you’d better hurry up. Mother’s day falls on March 11th in the UK this year so you don’t have long to get something sorted. And don’t forget deliveries could take longer depending on how badly your area is
Happy Monday guys! Today we’re talking about fringing in interiors. As I’ve explained here before, I do like to share all sorts of interiors trends with you guys, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I like them myself. I can appreciate them for what they are of course and the reason I feature them here on
Copper Planters from Audenza Around about this time last year, I wrote a post about how I deal with the winter blues and one of the main ways I like to tackle the dark and dreary winter days is to bring more greenery into my home. I’ve already managed to smuggle 5 new plants into our
