    Get shelfie ready

    by  • Monday, January 18, 2016 • Latest trends, Lovely websites, Stylish shopping, Uncategorized • 1 Comment

    I love a beautifully arranged little shelf moment, (sad as that looks in writing!), but I’m definitely not alone here, (the #shelfie confirms this is not only my guilty pleasure). There has definitely been more time spent than I would like to admit, artfully re-arranging a shelf, checking it from the angle you first see it at as you walk in…




    Pocket shelf in copper, £92.65, String range, Nest

    Check out the String inspiration board of shelfies if you want to feel really inadequate about your arranging skills.

    Just to add to this shelf-related stress, it’s not enough to just think about what is perched on top of it; the growing trend for the art of displaying (and instagramming) your wares beautifully; has created a whole new market for alternative shelf options and creative brackets. Here are a few of my favourites:


    Copper…of course!


    1. Copper wire shelf, £15, Urban Outfitters (back in stock February)
    2. Frama D 27 shelf, £95, Chase & Sorensen
    3. Form copper effect brackets, £7.47, B&Q


    Metal works…


    1. Metal shelf hangers in Mint, £30, Ferm Living
    2. Hanging grey shelf and black brackets, £59, Idyll Home 
    3. Green marble shelf with brass brackets, £68, Mia Fleur


    Softly does it…


    1. Concrete and cord hanging shelf, £29.45, Kelly Connor Designs, NotOnTheHighstreet.com
    2. WOW Merio wool shelf brackets, £39, Des Res (shelf available separately)
    3.  Autel (or Altar) shelf, by Mr & Mr, watch this space for suppliers. We spotted Mr & Mr at Design Junction last year, we loved these neon string shelves.


    Luxe leather…


    1. Wood shelf with leather brackets, £42, Rockett St. George
    2. Wooden shelf with leather brackets, small £48, large, £75, Graham & Green

    Mats made in heaven! Our edit of this season’s must-have rugs

    by  • Thursday, June 18, 2015 • Uncategorized • 1 Comment

    Whether it’s a small fluffy runner at the foot of the the bed, or a big statement mat in the middle of the living room, the right rug instantly makes a house feel a little more like a home. Whilst finding the perfect one can be tricky, there’s nothing like the current flurry of mid-season sales to help inspire us! Keeping the warmer weather in mind, we’ve rounded up a few of our summer favourites.


    For simple schemes, these monochrome options from H&M are a great place to start. Adorned in repeat folksy prints in a pared-back palette, they’re unfussy, budget friendly and look great paired with the matching range of cushions! Team with unvarnished floors and chalky finishes for a cool, scandi feel.Graham-&-Green

    Bring a sense of glamour to a neutral scheme with this gold-flecked beauty from Graham & Green (above). Putting a modern twist on a traditional cow hide rug, it’s a great way to add a touch of sparkle and opulence to your room! Tip: make the most of its shimmering tones by adding metallic accents around the room, such as a statement gold table stand.French-Connection

    For a subtle burst of pattern, this screen-printed durrie rug from French Connection has a softly faded design in muted blush tones. Combining a dainty print with a distressed finish, it would look great with leather occasional furniture or stripped-back floors. The tassels add a pretty touch, too!


    If you’re scouting the shops for an understated design, look no further than Rockett St George (above). This rustic range has it all; handmade in India, these affordable pieces would look great in any room of the house. Plus, the lightweight weaves make them perfect for summer!
