Here’s another blog series for the New Year. Its called ‘My Design picks out and about’.
My first feature is from the annual East London Design show.
I’m liking this pretty print by Sarah Hamilton with its coastal feel and light blue palette. Looking at it makes me long for Spring.
The above Nick Fraser terracotta pot was my first attempt at bringing more green indoors.
It was a delight to see more of his work on display at the fair (below).
The pots can be used as light pendants too. Such versatility in design.
How about these Teal coloured, steel piping candelabra, also by Nick? I say the perfect accent for an Industrial interior look.
These wooden Peg figures in monochrome are simply adorable, hand painted by Carrie Hill of Porter Colline.
Plates by Yvonne Ellen stopped me in my tracks for 2 reasons. Firstly because of my favourite pastel hues of mint and rose and secondly, for the animal illustrations that bring a quirky edge to these vintage pieces.
More favourite colours here. These teacups made me smile. Gin for breakfast anyone? Do take a look at Yvonne’s Folksy shop for more individual pieces.
These Provencal soaps wrapped in paper designed by Emily Maude . They would make charming little gifts.
Here are the sweet and colourful cards
and wonderfully scented Lavender bags by Jessica Hayman of Rosa and Clara designs .
A few cute stacking dolls like these would be a perfect addition for my son’s monochrome room. They are by Wee gallery and can be bought from Molly-Meg.
These light boxes by Leal can be customised with different words. The LOVE one above would be a good contender for a unique Valentine’s day gift.
Hope you’ve enjoyed my picks. I’ll be back soon with my second post for ‘A room in the house’. x
