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’

The current day use for baskets has moved beyond something just to store blankets, logs or washing in. The array of baskets with woven pattern and texture now available means they are more attractive than ever.

We want them on show, in all rooms of the home, on the floor, a shelf, or hung on a wall. Store shoes, toys, magazines, put plants in, whatever the use we have found some great styles at La Redoute this week.

What’s even better is there is currently 40% off everything until Sunday 29th with code: BIG40. So don’t hang about!

Gone are the days of hiding everything behind cabinet doors and wardrobes, it time to embrace what you own and show it off.

This Autumn furniture is to be admired not only by how it looks but also whats on it. Open clothes rails instead of wardrobes in the bedroom, doorless cabinets in the kitchen and drinks trolleys in the living room is where its at.

Going for this kind of look will obviously mean some serious de-cluttering and organising. Pick your favourite pieces to display on shelves, your best dinnerware out for all to see in the kitchen and neat hung clothing on rails. Its much more of a curated feel, almost shop like with minimal designed pieces of furniture.

Of course there is still a need to for some closed doors for those items you just cant live without but perhaps are less appealing on the eye. But generally if you can invest in some key storage you will start to embrace it and destress knowing you have a place for everything, and it looks good at the same time.

We’ve spotted this cool industrial luggage rack from Rockett St George, and we love it. Perfect for a hallway or kitchen to hang coats and scarves or pots and utensils. Will even work in a bathroom for storing towels. The options are endless.

The charcoal grey finish will fit in with most interiors and what makes this item even better is that it’s only £55.
