home: favourite thing [ sofa bed ]
There are so many great new arrivals appearing online and one of our favourite brands is made.com. We have featured them a lot recently and this is basically because of their great design and prices.
Our latest crush is on the Edwin sofa bed, with its classic vintage design and simple fold-down backrest. Available in three colours this sofa is certainly a winner for those who want a cool daytime sofa, but need a bed for occasional guests staying over.

home: trend [ herringbone ]
The herringbone trend has had a rise in popularity during the last couple of years, although it’s never ever really been out of favour.
It’s a classic look, a design-minded pattern and now this herringbone format has found new places to feature, not just floors and walls in wood or ceramic, but also cupboard fronts, kitchen doors, table tops and the pattern even transfers into fabrics and of course has always been a knitting pattern – thriving at the moment for throws and cushions.

home: made [ head boards ]
If you’re looking for a new creative project and want something unique for your bedroom then try a unique idea for the head board.
Hunting across the internet we found four great ideas for making your own head board.
We love the idea of using open books together – making the perfect bedtime reading spot. Create a beautiful tactile design with tied ribbons in a soft hue strung across above the bed. An easy but effective idea is to create a padded head board* using just squares of wood, squares of foam, squares of your chosen fabric and a staple gun! And lastly stencilling or printing a design directly in the place of a headboard is effective as well as being easy to change when you think of a different idea or want to change the look if your bedroom.

home: favourite thing [ bedding ]
When you try and find that perfect colour bedding that you’ve imagined in your head, that matches your walls or will compliment your interiors but just can’t find it; that slightly off white, that perfect pink, that earthy rust tone or even a good neutral flesh tone – head to Midnatt and we are sure you’ll fall in love with every shade.
Available online from their store but also from UK stockists including Cissywears – based in London and also online.
They say ;
Midnatt (or Midnight) is a newly established Swedish brand that makes bedding for children and adults in crisp, organic cotton. A washed-out favorite shirt and a country-side duvet cover that was added for several generations was the starting shot for Midnight’s first collection.
Our ambition is to always give your bed a contemporary look where colors and patterns can be combined just the way you want. Colored underlays and pillowcases sold separately make it easy for you to complete and update the bed with what you already have.
Our stew-washed finish gives the sheets a beautiful structure with preserved softness and the cotton’s ecological is for us an all natural starting point.
