Get Comfy with our Armchair Cherry Picks

Sit back and relax – we’ve got the armchair low down this month. We love armchairs because they are one of the most practical and versatile pieces of furniture that can transform any room without costing the earth.  With so much choice out there there are a few things you should consider before purchasing your perfect pew. Size First and foremost think about the size of your space.  A high backed wing chair will look enormous in a tight space but spectacular if it has room to breath. Measure and measure again before you buy to make sure it...

Credit: Décor Books Décor Books – the instant library to enhance your decor Do you have one of those mismatched, unruly bookshelves that makes you wince every time you walk past?

How to Create an Outdoor Room

We have been busy dusting down our garden furniture an unfurling the parasols in anticipation of some Summer al fresco dining.  Now more than ever we think of our gardens as an extension of our homes and the trend is growing in creating an ‘outdoor room’ – a garden room that brings the inside, outside. Its easier than you think to carve out a beautiful and inviting living space outdoors.  In fact we are only limited by our imaginations.  If there is just one garden project you should consider this Summer then this is it. To help get you...

Peppermint Grove

Now you might think there can’t possibly be anything new we can tell you about candles.  In fact I’m sure you would probably admit to having more than a sufficient amount of candles adorning your home. However, we can say hand on heart, if you smelt the Peppermint Grove range of candles, you would certainly make room for another. We came across Peppermint Grove quite by accident at an expo in London earlier this year. They had just launched in the UK and we were mesmerised by their exquisite range of candles, diffusers and body products. We were immediately...

A Very English Fabric

What could be more English in its glorious eccentricity then these gorgeous but slightly mad fabrics from Thornback & Peel, London-based creators of hand printed textiles homeware and accessories. Julia Thornback & Delia Peel are famous for their jaunty juxtaposition of 19th Century engravings with geometric pattern and a contemporary modern palette. Their work is inspired by an eclectic mixture of Victoriana and a celebration of the quirkiness of British humour and design. It can’t help but make you smile. We’ve had our eyes on their quirky Jelly & Pigeon print since it was first launched in 2006 and although...

Move Over Hygge, Hello Lagom!

2016 was the year of hygge, the Danish trend of just being and enjoying the moment. We found ourselves wrapped in cashmere throws, wearing oversized knitwear and sipping marshmallow laden hot chocolate in front of roaring fires. It was the year of bliss and indulgence. Every newspaper had a weekend supplement highlighting hygge and magazines were awash with the trend. And thanks to the infinite number of Instagram and Pinterest posts we knew exactly how to recreate the mood and more importantly how to pronounce hygee with with confidence (‘hue-guh’). We loved it because it allowed us to take...
