{SHOPPING} ANTIQUE SHOPPING AT KEMPTON PARK

{SHOPPING} ANTIQUE SHOPPING AT KEMPTON PARK

Today I made my first visit to Kempton park Antique's market in Sunbury, Surrey. Actually it was more of a pilgrimage, based on on my love of all things vintage. 

Held at Kempton Park's race course ground, this place gives the Rose bowl in LA a run for its money on the antique front. With over 700 stalls, its one of the largest twice monthly markets in Britain and a must visit for all antique collectors, dealers and most importantly interior designers.

{SHOPPING} COSY THROWS - MY PICK OF THE BEST

Hello Autumn!

It might only be the beginning of September but I’m already looking forward to those autumnal nights in with a scented candle and wrapped in a cosy throw. Naturally, this got me thinking how I need to buy a new throw and got me scanning the UK high-street offer for one that goes in our new-ish dark lounge and other styles too. From rustic country to scandi chic, to eclectic bohemian.

So go grab your wine, get comfy and start scrolling because hopefully I've chosen something that will appeal to everyone.

{SHOPPING} HOMEWARE SHOPPING IN KRAKOW

Shopping is my passion and my relentless search for original homeware never stops when I'm travelling. This week my work took me to Krakow, Poland. In the few minutes of downtime I had, I managed to squeeze in a little visit to the shops.

I went with no expectations which is always a bonus when visiting new cities, especially when Krakow surprises you with these beauts. If you're visiting, or live locally, then make sure you get down to these shops and support local Polish design.

There’s been a lot of buzz around blush pinks in fashion and interiors this year, and it’s a trend which has got me super excited when it comes to home décor.

{SHOPPING} THE DIY WORD BANNER

I recently threw a going away bash for a friend who was going travelling and I wanted a personalised banner to send her on her way.

Personalised banners can be expensive and a waste of money if they can’t be re-used, so I went in search of something  I could re-use depending on the event.

{SHOPPING} HOUSE PLANT SHOPPING

{SHOPPING} HOUSE PLANT SHOPPING

Last weekend I decided our house needed more green so I took myself off to our local garden centre in pursuit of finding a hardy house plant to fill a space in our kitchen/ diner. 
The obsession started over Easter when my mother in-law bought us a small house plant which has since sat proudly on our kitchen shelf, and most importantly is still alive! 
I love how house plants can instantly change the atmosphere of a room. They not only brighten up a drab space with a punch of green, but they can add style and a sense of health.
