home: found this [ octopus bowl ]
You may not have thought you need an octopus bowl but we think this might change your mind.
This beauty from homeware fave Audenza is an investment at £148 but what a statement it would make – especially if it had a chilled bottle of fizz in it, too.
It’s a clear glass bowl on an aluminium stand designed with an intricate moulding of an octopus. Clever, beautiful and a unique home accessory.
home: trend [ pouffe ]
It seems the home accessory of the season is the pouffe. Firmly back as a key piece of furniture in a lounge (or any other room) and with floral flouncy ones a distant memory of the 80s; the pouffe is now the perfect accessory to add a splash of colour or pop of pattern into a room.
There’s a plethora to choose from across the high street, designer and online stores and whatever trend you use as your styling guide, there’s a pouffe to suit the look.
We’ve picked a selection of our favourites to suit current trends including – colour pop, embellished, midcentury monochrome, maximalist, traveller and artisan.

home: featured [ BHS ]
Another long established brand, British Home Stores [ BHS ] which already disappeared from our high street, is now sadly also disappearing from online too.
The brand had decided to maintain an online presence with their clothing, homeware and infamous lighting, but now, after not long at all,they are pulling the plug on that too.
Just another all to familiar sign of the British retail industry losing pace and saying goodbye to another long standing retailer.
Head over to their website now and explore their closing down sale. It’s a good time to get some great bargain homewares at up to 50% off.
