    by  • Sunday, October 4, 2015 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    There’s nothing quite like a lazy Sunday for a spot of spontaneous splurging, so here are 6 things I’m lusting after this weekend. Whilst they’re not exactly can’t-live-without must-haves, they’re all things that would make me feel a little happier every time I used them! So with that in mind, why not indulge in a little luxury this Sunday? Happy shopping!

    1. I adore this set of pretty cheese knives from Anthropologie. Ornate, indulgent and supremely pretty, they’ll be sure to pop a smile on your face every time you use them.

    Tracery cheese knives, £34, Anthropologie

    2. With no particular rhyme or reason, this adorable object is top of my lust list. Stand on a desk for an uplifting little message!

    Hello word object, £24, West Elm

    3. As if we need any encouragement, this beautiful poster is the perfect excuse for a weekend tipple. Flamingo straw, anyone?

    Let’s Do Cocktails poster, £24.50, Heyla

    4. This statement board is too pretty to use! Well, almost…

    Green marble chopping board, £40.95, MiaFleur

    5. Add a simple pop of style with this pretty two-tone piece – just fill with fresh flowers and enjoy.

    Dipped concrete vase in Blush, £14.50, Cox & Cox

    6. As the leaves begin to turn, what better way to capture the best of the changing season than with this eye-popping lomo camera?

    Lomography Diana F+ instant camera in blue, £119, Amara

    7. I love the Scandi-meets-industrial vibe of this understated cushion from French Connection. Pop it on plain white linen bedding for easy, pared-back style.

    Get cosy for autumn with the irresistible Wild Coast range from Tori Murphy

    by  • Sunday, September 20, 2015 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    As September draws on and dreams of an Indian summer fade, there’s just no denying the sudden arrival of autumn. Pounding rain, steaming soups and early nights curled up in front of the sofa are all par for the course, along with beautiful new interiors products to help us keep cosy in style.


    This month, the new Wild Coast range from Tori Murphy is top of my wish list. Tori’s fifth collection, it’s inspired by her childhood holidays to West Cork, and is full of the graphite grey and slate blue shades she found on its rugged shores. Featuring three new fabric designs, Harbour Stripe, Boulder and Cove, the range includes throws, cushions, tablecloths, napkins, aprons and more, all in a stormy palette inspired by Ireland’s wintery coastline.


    Speaking about her inspiration for the range, Tori recalls “clambering over time-stained rocks, setting out to uncertain seas in sailboats and huddling round bonfires with cousins, always returning to the familiar warmth of a much-loved blanket.” Her new collection’s ability to harness the best of autumn’s palette makes it the perfect antidote to the grizzly rain outside.


    Give your table a new season makeover with the chic and simple Boulder napkins (top), or add a pared-back rustic twist with the classic Harbour Stripe designs (above; all £60 for four). Feeling like a snuggle on the sofa? You can’t beat the 100% merino wool blanket in Smoke and Ecru (below, £250) for true toe-curling comfort. The rest of her range is full of more shopping inspiration to keep you comfy – check out the hot water bottles, cushions and baby blankets, too.



    Throws, £250 each; cushions, from £65 each; kitchen and tabletop textiles, from £15 each; fabric, from £80 per m; all Tori Murphy
