My Favourite finds - Autumn 2017 November 11, 2017 19:58

Autumn is well and truly upon us. We can hibernate until Spring, wishing away the coming months to welcome the sun again, or embrace the comfy cosiness that Autumn brings.

One sure way to achieve this, is to introduce a bit a faux fur into your home. Faux fur is huge this season, and there are some absolute smashers around. Here are a couple of my favourites :

Faux fur bench from Maisons du Monde £108

This Ikea rug  is a steal at  £10! Buy two and drape one over a chair.         

                                      

The fabulous brand Selfish Mother, have teamed up with Save the Children, with a different celebrity designing each sweatshirt. This is definitely going on my Christmas list, and with 50% of the retail price going straight to Save the Children, not only do they look the part, but they are raising a huge amount for this amazing charity. It's sure to keep the autumn chill away, and looks super cool too.

They are £50 and available here

 

I've been lusting after these fabulous Charley Harper Flock Of Birds stickers for a while now , and have just ordered them hoping they'll work in the bathroom? Not sure how they'll hold up with the steam, but they can always fly off to our bedroom. 

I love Charley Harper designs, his unique minimalist style is unmistakable. We have his amazing flamingo and Heron  already available in lampshades, but have two new stunning designs to add over the coming weeks...

 

 Another fun purchase this week, is these fabulous light switch stickers. I've bought them for little miss, and as she's always wanting to re-do her bedroom (definitely her mothers daughter) these are perfect!

 

There's nothing quite like a spanking new, crisp set of bedding to snuggle under, and as my thoughts turn to cosying up our bedroom, this set from Mini Moderns is top of my list. I'm a huge fan of all things Mini Moderns, but this Darjeeling print has to be my most favourite!

 My final favourite, is a brand new addition to hunkydory home for autumn. I'm keeping this one myself, I absolutely love it! This little beauty has a photoshoot this week, so will be available next week on the website. We've also some fabulous new lamp bases coming soon too, I'm sooo excited for these, they're the same as our handmade solid oak bases, but with a new look!

I'm off now for snuggles with my girl, cosying up in front of the fire with a hot chocolate. I love autumn...

 


Week 14: My Favourite Finds September 07, 2015 21:21

Oops... it's been 2 months since my last Favourite Find post, let's call it a summer hiatus.

I spotted these Alphabet Candles in Marks & Spencer last week and had to snap up an A.  The packaging is lovely and the candle has a gorgeous grapefruit and ginger scent, even better they're only £6.00.  Snap up a few as early Christmas gifts.

 

Oh my, oh my... I NEED this lovely bedding, it looks fine and the price tag is very reasonable BUT it's in France and they don't appear to ship to the UK - sob! If anyone's visiting France anytime soon do let me know...

You know I love everything by Ingela P Arrenhius, and so I'm excited to see these new enamel flower pots, you get both pots in one box.  I found these on a Swedish site, but I'm sure they'll be available in the UK soon.

This tunic from Boden featuring a Mark Hearld design is too nice to be just for kids, but unfortunately they don't do grown up sizes... shame, however it will be lovely for Little Miss this Autumn.

Rachel Powell is another super talented design whose work I really like.  These birch ply trays are new for 2015 and simply lovely.  Check out her wallpaper too - I want ALL of them!


Welcome Autumn! September 02, 2015 13:54

 

Hooray, September's here...

 

 

 

 

  

 

I realise I'm probably in the minority, but each year I'm always relieved when the summer holidays are over; it's not that I don't like spending time with Mr Hunky (teacher) and little miss (pupil), but it really throws my working-from-home out of kilter.   Every year when July rolls around I promise myself that I won't neglect my blog, social media and website and every year I end up spending 6 weeks chasing my tail.  If I spend too much time working I feel guilty I'm not doing summer holiday things and vice versa, so I welcome September and the return of my routine with wide open arms!

This September I've got so much on the 'to do' list, I'm refreshing the product range with new designs and brand new lamp bases (chunky, ceramic, retro beauties) and I'm working on my own designs too which I'm hoping to bring you in the next few weeks, that's all in addition to keeping on top of all your lovely orders which are coming in thick and fast. 

 

 

 So, I shall leave you with a sneak preview of the new Tulip design and ceramic bases coming soon and make the most of having the house back to myself before the school bell rings!
