Stay Gold

When the temperature drops it's easy to quickly become disenchanted with winter and find yourself scrolling through old summer photos longing for a little warmth! Although crisp, sunny winters mornings are beautiful, it's lovely to be able to bring some of that sunshine inside and transform your home ready for the arrival of spring. Our new metallic home accessories are perfect for welcoming the sun and will perk up even the gloomiest of days. 
Grasshopper - £15.00, Coaster - £5.95
These golden grasshoppers and wonderfully intricate skeleton leaf coasters are a fantastic way to bring some fun and glamour in to your home. The detailing on these golden beauties is amazing and creates a wonderfully chic addition to any home - think sitting atop a mantelpiece (preferably in a decadent matte black living room) or as a centrepiece at a dinner table, or even as a paperweight for the funkiest office organiser! These coasters can also be used for decoration if you can't bear the thought of spilling anything on them, or if you like a more antiqued look, would be beautiful candle holders for a spring wedding. 
Pineapple - £25.00, glass vases - £10.00
It seems that the humble pineapple has been undergoing a bit of a renaissance at the moment, and recently they have been cropping up everywhere from fashion, to light fittings to quirky prints (we even have a gorgeous pineapple Valentine's card!) which we think has been long overdue. It has become an emblem of hospitality and 'welcome' once in the home, which we think is pretty lovely and even more reason for this piece to be the newest addition to every follower-of-fashion's home. Great to hold your jewellery and trinkets, or as a fun sweet container that will definitely take centre stage at any party! These sweet little vases are perfect for holding a single stem or a couple of sprigs of foliage, perfect for scattering around the house when the first few flowers start to come out for spring.
Rabbit pot - £16.00
 What better symbol that spring is (optimistically) on the way than a beautiful bunny?! This gorgeous pot oozes elegance and has a timeless feel that means in would look perfect amongst any kind of decor, from rustic farmhouse kitchen storage, to smooth minimalist living room decoration, or even a little trinket box for a (very careful) child's bedroom. The gold rim running around the centre gives it an orb-like feel and the gold eye gives a subtle yet sophisticated accent.  
Large - £10.00, small - £6.00
 These containers evoke images of tropical islands, poolside cocktails and the smooth lull of waves lapping against the shore, unless that's my consistent craving for sunshine letting my mind wander BUT how beautiful is this turquoise and gold together?! The translucent quality of the material means there is a wonderful ethereal glow from any light around these pots - looking lovely near a window to catch natural light, or, if you're happy with potential snail invasion, would look amazing in a garden either hosting plants or tea lights for the idyllic summer's glow. However you chose to style these colourful containers, they are guaranteed to make your home feel instantly sunnier and make summer dreaming a little bit closer...

We hope you enjoyed reading about our sunny new pieces and hope to see you in store soon! x

New Beginnings

Firstly, a very Happy New Year to all of our lovely customers! We hope you had a peaceful, relaxing time with much food and drink being consumed at regular intervals. After all the jollity, however, there often seems to be a certain amount of slovenliness associated with the beginning of January - one too many mince pies perhaps? Or multiple glasses of mulled wine making you feel a little worse for wear? Not that there is anything wrong with some over-indulgence, in fact at Christmas it's practically encouraged! It's always nice to get back to work with a feeling of a fresh start, however and whilst you're attempting the new fad diet of the year, why not treat yourself to something that will make those early starts and dark evenings a little easier to bear...
Light Up Canvas - £40.00
Is it just me or do houses look a little sad with the absence of fairy lights and candles after the packing away of the Christmas decorations? Well pine no more for something to replace them as this wonderful canvas will fill that space not just post Christmas, but all year round! Battery operated, these canvases have proved to be hugely popular and we can certainly see why. Brilliant yellow perfectly jazzing up even the darkest of days, tiny lights giving a fun yet subtle touch whilst it being the perfect size for any manner of spaces in your home.

Red Bag - £25.00, Leather Purses - £16.00 each
   The darker winter days still feel like a bit of a struggle and waking up before sunrise is even more of a shock, but what better way to bring a bit of brightness to dreary days than with these beautifully coloured accessories? Guaranteed to add a gorgeous pop to any outfit, this red bag is the perfect size for all your essentials, with front zip and zip fastening and removable strap so it can double up as a clutch or even a wash bag for a weekend away! The Italian leather purses made in Florence are wonderfully soft and you can really feel the high quality as well as coming in a fabulous variety of colours including orange, turquoise, white and blue so you can treat a friend to one too (if your post Christmas account isn't too far stretched...)!
Love Lights - £60.00, Literary Prints - £24.00, Card - £3.20
It's just as important to continue spreading the love after Christmas as it is during the holidays and how better to show it than with these amazing lights?! We've featured them on the blog before but after a flurry of interest over Christmas we are very happy to say that we just got a new delivery today and the red and rust are back in stock! Simple and wonderfully effective, treat yourself or your loved ones and show them you care. A little less costly but equally as sentimental, a spontaneous card is always a perfect way to let someone you love know you are thinking of them. Finally, this Wizard of Oz print is the perfect addition to any book lovers home (there's no place like it!) and sits perfectly anywhere from the smallest of studio flats to the biggest of barn conversions! The sentiment is still the same. 

We hope you all have a very happy start to your new year and hope to see you soon!  x
