The tree is up, the halls are decked, but your home still doesn't feel Christmassy enough. What to do?
For the final finishing touches, you can make your home a cosy winter paradise by layering up throws and blankets. Our two key looks, a Berry Merry Christmas and a Traditional Christmas each work in different ways to add a festive feel to any interior. Berry Merry Christmas brings together blankets and throws from across our whole range and mixes colours you might not expect to work together.
I thought, we really need to celebrate this truly British tradition so we created our Cottage Garden collection of luxury throws and blankets in homage to the growers and gardeners across the land. Read the full story ...
It’s not everyday you get a call from TV people requesting your help, so when the producers of hit E4 show, Made in Chelsea called us a couple of months back to ask if they could use our picnic rugs in the season finale, we were only too pleased to get involved.
Nothing says British Summer like the humble beach hut. Or rather, the not so humble beach hut, with seaside sheds on sought after coastlines exchanging hands for tens of thousands of pounds. Whether you’ve managed to get your hands on one for real, or are creating a hideaway in your garden summerhouse, you can easily achieve the beach hut vibe with a coastal colour scheme and a few essential items.
Summer is just about here and there’s no better a way to enjoy the sunshine than with a picnic. Weather you’re having an afternoon in the park, a walk over the fields or lazing by a river, pitching up with a picnic can turn a couple of hours outdoors into a really special day.
So what are the essential ingredients to a perfect picnic?
We saw rich deep blues starting to make a big splash a few seasons ago. Don’t get us wrong, we know blue schemes à la coastal are perpetual favourites, especially for boy’s rooms and bathrooms, but we started seeing deep dark inky blues and vivid cobalts cropping up making a statement in 2012, and they seem to be here to stay!
Grey is still the new grey!!! Whether it’s used as an accent colour or as the base, we don’t see any signs of popularity flagging. Such a versatile colour, grey works well with almost everything, from whites and neutrals for a clean calm look to minty greens and duck eggs for country cottage freshness.
