Hello, and sorry for the delay but I promise it is worth it, it’s finally time for my last instalment of small businesses to shop, and today it is the wonderful turn of homeware. Especially as we’ve spent so much time in our homes this year. Hm. I live in a rented flat so I sadly cannot do much in the way of physically changing anything so I love adding new bits and pieces in to ‘decorate’ my flat instead. Here are some of my favourites…
For candles that are wayyyy too pretty to light, look no further than Summer Morning Studios aesthetically pleasing handmade candles. Pastel candle perfection to dot around your home. And if you do decide to light them…they smell delicious too.
Speaking of pastels, I’d like to introduce you to Sarora Knots. These beautiful handmade and eco friendly macrame plant hangers come in a wide variety of colours, but the pastels are my favourite. Perfect to add a little colour and hang your plants proudly on display.
If you’re looking to add some artwork to your walls, E.g.n Print has the most beautiful, stylish and colourful floral artwork and textiles to enhance your home. All her prints are Giclée printed on paper which lasts 200 years. Beautiful lasting, sustainable prints to fill your home with!
Another beautiful artist now, Harlie Briggs creates the most stunning abstract nudes and nature art pieces (name a better combination) and also paints her beautiful art work onto vases that she up-cycles. She makes weekly drops or so on her instagram and her art involves women sharing their empowering nudes with her, for her to capture and paint to celebrate the female form.
A recent discovery of mine, and now I am obsessed. The prettiest hand painted gingham sustainable tableware from new brand Vaisselle (which is French for dishes). They are inspired by Spanish antique ceramics, but with a colourful twist. It’s no secret that I love gingham, and now my obsession has extended to my home too. Putting everything on my Christmas list immediately.
An absolutely gorgeous gift idea now from the Stitch Company, they do the softest embroidered fluffy towels which are perfect as a gift for someone else, yourself, or even your dog ! I’ve got Stanley a personalised blanket for Christmas, hope he’s going to love it! You can get three different sized towels and choose from lots of different fonts and colours too. They also do personalised gift boxes for Christmas!
I just adore these beautiful illustrations from print designer Rose England, who in her own words is: ‘Representing all women through art alongside nature’s true forms’. And how stunning is her work? All the prints are printed on environmentally friendly bamboo paper for the longest life for your prints. You’ll want to fill your home with them!
Now these are candles you can light, and make sure you do because they smell incredible! New handmade candle company Sedgwick has created three deliciously smelling candles that fill your whole room with their beautiful scent. And for the perfect gift you can even get them personalised. Oh and they are 100% sustainable and vegan too.
