    by  • Thursday, March 26, 2015 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    Made.com has always been a trusty go-to for fabulous homeware, but its recent range has got even the tiniest of tots standing to attention. Full of failsafe furniture, sturdy storage and adorable accessories, this collection of brilliant buys are a fast-track to making your children’s rooms the most stylish on the block. In fact, some of the pieces are so downright delectable that adults have already started requesting them in grown-up sizes. Fingers crossed!

    Philip Colbert range Made.com

    For fun pieces with plenty of attitude, don’t miss the dynamic collaboration with Philip Colbert. Creator of fashion-label-cum-pop-group The Rodnik Band, his irreverent, pop-art-inspired designs are packed with eye-popping primary colours and iconic prints, for a fun twist on otherwise practical furniture. Want to make a statement? This jaw-dropping shark chair, £449, is just the way to do it.

    Iso range Made.com

    Or if you’re more of a monochrome fan, then the black and white Iso range is a super-cool alternative. Keep your eye out for soft furnishings and art prints in minimal Scandi colours, for a clear-cut vibe that’s ideal for boys and girls alike. We love the cloud cushion – a steal at just £15, it’s an easy accessory that feels anything but childish. Try building the look with matching framed weather artworks and cotton bed sets, for a pared-back look that will stand the test of time.

    Linus range Made.com

    Any parent knows that when it comes to kids’ bedrooms, it’s nigh on impossible to have enough storage. From cute cabinets to practical wardrobes, the furniture in the new Linus range is our new favourite way to keep rooms looking spic and span whilst maintaining a cool, cohesive scheme. Our must-have piece? Check out the uber-practical range of beds, from £199 – complete with nifty under bed storage, lower bunks or trusty trundles, they’re the ultimate way to maximise space without compromising on style.

    The best plate rack ever

    by  • Tuesday, October 16, 2012 • Look what I found • 4 Comments

    I don’t know about you, but us folk at Ideal Home HQ are LOVING this stainless steel plate rack from theplaterack.co.uk and considering putting in a bulk order…

    Mr and Mrs Plate Rack are husband and wife, Nick and Jen. They found this utilitarian kitchen staple whilst travelling in Northern India. They decided to bring a load back to the UK and have set up an online shop devoted entirely to this one product. I love its industrial style. You can fit two side by side on the wall or even stack one on top of the other. Genius.

    With hooks for mugs, cutlery slots and space for at least 10 plates this piece is a practical, robust beauty. I just need to find space on my kitchen wall. What do you think?

    Artisan homewares from Blodwen

    by  • Saturday, July 7, 2012 • Favourite shops • 1 Comment

    Planning a camping trip in Wales this summer? You’d fit right in with this enamelware from Blodwen. I got a bit excited when I saw this! The classic navy and white has been given a wonderful Welsh twist, featuring the iconic ‘Caernarfon’ pattern that you normally see used in traditional tapestry blankets…

    Blodwen has lots of lovely stuff. The founder, Denise Lewis, is passionate about supporting handmade Welsh craft. She designed this ‘Gwalia’ (Welsh for ‘homeland’) enamelware herself  and, although the enamel is sourced in Europe, the design and firing of the decals is all done in Wales.

    1. Enamel jug, £35; 2. Mug set, £28 for 2; 3. bowl, £15.

    Based in Cardigan Bay, you’ll also find woven baskets, wooden bowls, pottery, tapestry floor mats and homemade jam! Have a browse online at their delightful wares and the Gwalia is also available through Liberty. - Alice
