Life’s too short to live in a beige box. It’s time to unleash the colour, release the kitsch and surround ourselves with pieces we love. It’s time to create homes that are as beautiful and unique as we are. We hear you. We are Audenza, ‘The ones who dare’.
We have always been a fan of Audenza, we love its ever changing collection, plus it’s well priced too. Our current favourites include the green velvet cushions, black dimple vase and gold mesh lounge chair.

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.

It is always exciting when a new brand hits the high street, intrigued to see how they are going to stand out from the rest. Well ARKET is the name, and it already has a good head start, coming from the H&M family.
With H&M Home doing so well at the moment with well designed, well made pieces at great prices its the perfect time to introduce the new brand.
The online range is well put together, if a little limited. You will though find some gorgeous items from kitchenware to vases to soft furnishings. Our advice is to head to the flagship store on Regent St, London. Here you will get the full ARKET experience. A stripped back, simple collection which is sustainable, durable and timeless.
‘A modern-day market that offers essential products for men, women, children and the home, ARKET stores also include a café based on the New Nordic Food Manifesto. ARKET’s mission is to democratise quality through widely accessible, well-made, durable products, designed to be used and loved for a long time’
