We love a new season with lots of new arrivals hitting the stores. A favourite of ours spotted this week is from Rockett St George. Their Soho Ceramics range of vases and planters is the perfect addition to any home. The 70’s colours will bring warmth to a room and the paint dipped finish creates texture and pattern. A quirky addition is that all the ceramics are named after streets in Soho, London.

home: made [ hand painted tableware ]
There are some gorgeous hand painted items available at the moment, from floral plates to polka dot mugs. The idea is so simple it’s worth giving it a go yourself.
Get hold of some basic white tableware [ try Ikea ] and then decide what look you want to achieve. Go monochrome and use a black pen to create a dot or stripe effect, or bring colour using paints [ dishwasher safe ] to make swirls, floral designs or a geometric pattern. Be as creative as you want, whatever works within your home.
[ Head to ebay for pens and paints ]
Below are some tutorials to give you ideas.
home: made [ dipped baskets ]
We have come to see quite a lot of paint dipped items for the home over the last year or two. But this trend seems to be staying and where it has been really popular on furniture; chair and stool legs aswell as ceramics and vases, the big look carrying on through Summer into Autumn is dipped baskets.
This simple diy project uses very little extras on top of the basket itself. Pick the size and shape, decide on a paint colour – this could be a bright vibrant shade or classic white, also consider metalic shades – and grab a tray or large bowl to drop the basket into. [ another option is to use dye instead of paint ]
We have some tutorials below for you to follow.
