Juice time

Some more pieces purchased for the flat. This time… cups! We found these glass cups in T.K Maxx and thought they were really cute. Branded with different logos including “absolutely pure milk” and “juice time”, and at a bargain price of £1.49 each (we brought 6 in total), we couldn’t resist their charm. Having already…

The Midas Touch

We’ve had this post in the pipeline for quite some time now, but when we went to set it live we noticed that the cutlery which inspired it were no longer in stock on the website. Slap on the wrist for you West Elm! However, whilst having a recent browse online we noticed that, hallelujah,…

Kloutin’ about #100aires

Klout as currency? What a genius idea – and one which the guys over at Nokia Lumia adopted in order to help young creatives raise awareness of their art and ultimately “sell” their pieces.

Also encapsulating the retro trend, as well…

Upcycle and away

The idea of upcycling is not a new thing, but with the rise in the vintage trend and consumer’s needs for cheaper options than before means that we are buying more and more second-hand goods. Certainly no strangers to it, we love buying something with a story. However, we don’t exactly have the funds to…

Luscious living

It’s wonderful when a piece of interiors tells a story. We’re huge fans of old fables and children’s stories (David actually collects old Edward Gorey books), and there’s just something about these pieces from Lush Designs that evokes the child within us! David was first introduced to this brand a couple of years ago when…
