    by  • Saturday, September 5, 2015 • Uncategorized • 2 Comments

    As children up and down the country this week have either started back at school or prepare to, it feels like the right time to bring you some exciting news from British brand SCION. Known for its trend savvy yet affordable designs, (and regularly making an appearance through-out the pages of Ideal Home Magazine), they have now branched out to produce their first range of fabrics and wallcoverings designed for kids (as well as those young at heart!), and IT’S GORGEOUS! It’s not available until the end of the month but we were so excited to see the preview that we had to share it with you!

    If only all rainy days were like these cheery ‘April Showers’ and ‘Splish Splash’ fabrics and wallpapers with their delightful rainbow-coloured raindrops. Available in a variety of colourways.

    Establishing a reputation over the last 3 years for cutting-edge designs, centering around their ‘fun, young and funky’ ethos, the new Guess Who? collection is no exception and promises to bring plenty of colour, pattern and light-heartedness into your little one’s rooms. Imaginative and fun, Guess Who? packs in motifs from the best of a day out with the kids, celebrating the fun-loving with its abundance of whimsical animals, bold stripes, playful patterns and funky florals, all available in co-ordinating fabrics and wallpapers in a mouth-watering jelly bean colour palette.

    Animal Magic’ features a mixture of exotic animals along with some familiar faces such as Mr Fox.

    If it’s animals that grab your little one’s attention then ‘Animal Magic’ is sure to be a big hit, with its gathering of labeled zoo animals in funky colours on either a black or white background. Each of the characters also have a design that features them alone, so if there’s a particular animal that’s big your household, you can choose a design to accessorize with.

    The range has been designed with all age groups in mind, from baby to young adult (or older!) and the colours chosen reflect this transition. The ‘Letters Play’ motif is both educational and fun and comes in a variety of different colourways to suit each age group. Used below in muted pastel shades, it’s perfect for a nursery room, along with the ‘Lots of Dots’ design on the walls- inspired by finger painting.

    Another one of our favourite designs has to be this funky and floral ‘Blooming Lovely’ retro design, inspired by the great outdoors but with a nod to the 60’s. Use the fabric to make cushions or cover an armchair.

    With so many designs in the collection, we’re sure you’ll find the perfect match for your little ones, plus we bet you’ll fall in love with all the characters too!

    Launching at the end of Septemeber 2015, Guess Who? will be available via network of stockists both nationally and internationally. Head to www.scion.uk.com to find out more.

    Room of the week

    by  • Friday, February 1, 2013 • Look what I found • 8 Comments

    This is my favourite colour combo du jour. Chalky greys, shell pinks, corals and a hint of bistro green. It works well with industrial furniture, antique finds, rustic weathered wood, metal and clean, white walls. It feels a little bit French, a little bit Scandi and a little bit coastal. It’s feminine but not too girly. A neutral scheme with a pretty edge. I could definitely live with this look. What do you think?

    Sneak Peek: Get into bed with Joules!

    by  • Sunday, May 27, 2012 • Look what I found • 3 Comments

    I’ve struggled to sleep this week under/on top of my 13.5 tog goose down duvet. Suddenly it’s summer and my bed is not ready! Having just previewed the new Bedeck bed linen range in collaboration with Joules, I’m now feeling a little inspired to sort out my bedroom, dig out the summer duvet and change the sheets. Although this is an AW12 collection, I think the country-style prints are suitable summery and are available from mid-August. Take a peek…
