There’s a wealth of trend aware pieces to choose from and now get 40% off with code BLACKFRIDAY at the checkout. It’s the perfect time to make an investment in statement pieces (including the rug that even had its own instagram feed!) with this huge discount.
If you love stationery then you must check out Present & Correct. Launched in 2009 this store showcases a collection which is not only nostalgic but modern in design.
We love the vintage accessories sitting alongside graph paper notebooks and 1970s erasers, plywood storage tray and rubber stamp set. The curated collection is beautifully designed, with everything workinh together and there is a real identity running through.
‘It’s a showcase for the things we have enjoyed since school. A long-term obsession with stationery has culminated in a constantly evolving store. Paper and office objects which are inspired by homework, the post office and school’
It’s rich, but calming; readily available in homeware across the high street; easy to match up with similar hues in paint and wallpaper; and compliments well with other on trend favourites including metallic tones, monochrome or jewel tones – or you go true to the trend and have design braveness in having everything being in the teal colour! – a strong bold look.
A familiar sight on big town high streets is favourite department store House of Fraser. Head online or to your closest store to discover what’s new in for Autumn/Winter in their generous homeware and interiors department.

Explore the kitchen department for beautifully designed plates and glassware; modern stylish designs in lighting; scented candles galore to make perfect Christmas presents; furniture, art, cushions, bedding, kitchenalia, towels, cutlery, the list goes on.
There’s always great special offers, sales and even a rewards card to ensure shopping there is even more worth while.
We don’t often feature kids stores, but thought it was about time we did, especially as one of us has just welcomed a new member to her family.
We came across thismodernlife.co.uk and fell in love. Full of monochrome and pattern, the gorgeous designs of lighting, soft furnishings and accessories will compliment any room.
Launched in 2011 as The Modern Baby by Suzanne & Danny, this online store as grown and evolved as their family has, searching out products that will bring fun and joy to your home.
‘We combine modern, retro and vintage inspired items. We are passionate about supporting other small businesses, and aim to continually increase our stock of eco friendly products. We genuinely love what we do here, and we want you to be excited by our expanding range of home wares and decor – we have lots of plans for the future!’
Love the Ricky concrete rectangle planter from Danielle Rubino. Available in three colours and ideal as a planter but also makes good storage for other items.
The premise of starting my business was to create small pieces of artwork, which are accessible to anyone. Throughout art school I worked with concrete . I have always been drawn to the material because of its high compressive strength, durability and industrial aesthetics. I wanted to project the idea of stability and support. I believe once you have some form of stability, support and structure this can provide the basis for progression, development and growth.
