home: event [ candle making workshop ]
We found this great workshop with London Craft Club in central London. Enjoy 2 hours creating your own essential oil which you will then use to scent a candle & purfume.
‘Our guest expert teacher Alice Scott, from Scott’s Apothecary, trained as a nutritional therapist and is hugely passionate about creating natural, eco-friendly candles, beauty products, and cleaning products. She is incredibly knowledgable about the properties and benefits of the different essential oils, and full of tips on how to incorporate essential oils into your daily routine‘

Something to make the summer dining table look even prettier.
With wild flowers being a strong trend these floral glasses from Urban Outfitters are rather lovely.

home: trend [ washed linen ]
Over the last few months we have noticed an increased selection of linen items online and in stores. Particularly bedding where every brand is offering a soft washed linen duvet set or cushion cover.
Linen gives a really soft feel against the skin and is easy to care for, with little worry about ironing – let it be creased!
Soft tones are always a winner, including pinks, greys and creams. Create a neutral pallete mixing tones and layers to give your bed the most welcoming feel.

home: made [ stencilled walls ]
If you love the look of modern patterned wallpapers – dots, arrows, paint daubs, triangles, or Victorian and Moroccan prints – but need a more affordable options, try stencilling.
There’s been a huge rise in modern style stencils available, especially on Etsy, that offer an affordable creative way to achieve great feature designs on a wall without having to use wallpaper.
The advantage is it’s easy to change as you can paint straight over the paint, as opposed to painting over wall paper or stripping the wallpaper!

home: found this [ rattan chair ]
It’s no hidden fact that we both love chairs as well as having a slight obsession with rattan and woven examples.
This gorgeous rattan cane armchair from frenchconnection.com is a statement piece that will keep giving for many years to come.
The resurgence of rattan furniture is great, but for some it never really went away and for this reason it is the right decision to invest in a piece that you will love forever.

home: trend [ jewel tone glassware ]
Key trend of the season, jewel tones are staying around. An easy and beautiful way to introduce these tones of colour to any room, is with glassware.
Glasses, vases, plates, dishes, bowls, jars – when in beautiful jewel tones, are pieces of art – homeware meant to be on show, displayed, and a great way to bring colour to an interior.
It’s a colour palette that seems to be being embraced across the high street and therefore at a range of prices.
Our favourite idea is to create rich, colourful table settings by combining glassware, plates and vases of different tones. Add highlights of copper or gold (cutlery, candelabras or napkin rings) to finish the look perfectly.
