    seasalt homewareI’ve got their best selling Sea Folly Jacket and now I want their super soft bed linen. Hailing from the West Country, I’ve always been a fan of Cornish clothing brand, Seasalt. Last summer they launched their bed linen collection and are slowly expanding their homeware to include towels, cushions, notebooks and more. There is also an exclusive collection from the renowned Leach Pottery of St Ives. Each print is designed in house and they have a lovely, hand crafted quality. They are also launching some super exciting things for SS15 so watch this space!

To transform one into a side table go for a sturdy box, turn it upside down and attach four castors to the bottom so it can be moved around. Decorate the inside with old book pages, sheet music or scraps of wallpaper. It’s that simple. Try vintagecrates.co.uk for a good selection (also known as Bushel Boxes) or try your local car boot or vintage shop.
