A Slow and Simple Christmas - Blog Round-up

I'm delighted to see a strong theme emerging in current posts from bloggers I follow. That is the concept of a slow and simple Christmas. All sorts of thoughtful posts are popping up with considered advice on how to approach the festive season in a quieter, more minimal, or more sustainable way.  This idea speaks to me very personally. I have never been a huge fan of Christmas, and whilst of course I love my family, it's never been a time of year I particularly look forward to. I suppose (and this sounds ridiculous now), I had never considered it...

Our Favourite Bathroom Trends from Pinterest

It's a never-ending source of inspiration, whether you're looking for interiors, recipes, toys, holiday destinations, hair styles, craft activities, wedding planning... anything really. It's an absolute treasure trove.    So welcome to this new series of blog posts, where we pick out our favourite trends from Pinterest with a few choice images. First up... Bathrooms!  (Image by Not Only White)  Now OBVIOUSLY monochrome bathrooms are where it's at, for us that really goes without saying.

Useful / Beautiful

"Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."  In our About Us page, I referred to this William Morris quotation as 'a bit of a cliche'. I did so because I suspect (know) that ours is far from the only lifestyle store to refer to this quote to try and explain what they're aiming to achieve with their product range.
