home: recommends [ Room 356 ]
One of our favourite stores we found this year is Room 356. This home and lifestyle store is full of beautifully designed pieces from stationary to lighting, jewellery to ceramics.
Room 356 started in 2014 by Mother and Daughter team Cassie & Bev with their bricks and mortar store in Bolton with an accompanying online shop, blog and social media accounts.
‘ The dream was to create an online store and retail space with a special and unique identity. We wanted to offer you the ultimate shopping experience, and make each and everyone of you feel valued.’
Try and make a visit Room 356 in person, otherwise be sure to check out the online store and keep up to date with Room 356 by following their Twitter and Instagram accounts.

home: featured [ O’Dell’s ]
Another realitively new homeware shop popping up on the streets of East London is O’Dell’s – a fine mix of homeware, grooming, and lifestyle goods aimed at men, although there are plenty of pieces that will appeal to all.
Established by Tom O’Dell, he has created – in his own words – ‘a carefully curated selection of products from skilled makers and brands, that sit within a relaxed and friendly shop in the heart of Shoreditch’.
He keeps the products as exclusive as possible to O’Dell’s with a real focus on UK made goods.
The store itself has a very clean and minimal feel about it, with only the addition of a few filled plant pots placed around the stock, allowing the products to stand out and be the main focus.
There are so many lovely pieces on offer, with our favourites being the hand crafted ceramics and rugs.
O’Dell’s should be on everyone’s list of ‘must see’ homeware shops in London.

home: favourite thing [ printable art ]
The power and impact of large scale art in a room is great. Make a statement or bring a strong colour or theme to a room with a huge print. It’s generally a fairly expensive thing to aquire but US online store, Sycamore Street Press, amongst the range of other fab paper goods and homeware, have the super idea of offering downloadable digital PDFs of brilliant photographic prints that can be printed yourself at your local printers to whatever size (up to 48” x 36” – which is huge)
We absolutely love this way of bringing the outdoors in, with their print range of cactus photographs. Fresh natural images taken from the cactus garden in Huntingdon, Pasedena (California) which create a airy feel and evoke the feeling of the outdoors – allowing the natural world inside and are almost window-like when hung. Either frame, stick or use hanging bars for these huge pieces of art.
Brilliant art at only $9 per download from the Sycamore Street Press.
