Snuggly cotton blankets now available online

Just in time for those cold winter months ahead: I’ve uploaded the latest arrival of cotton blankets to the online store.

These versatile cotton blankets (220cm x 110cm) have so many uses –  add texture and colour to your space: protect items of furniture; decorate a bed, sofa or armchair; use them to snuggle up on colder evenings.

Stay warm!

Those candle jars have finally arrived!

My candle jar shipment has just arrived!
Getting my lovely products from all over Asia can be quite tricky at the best of times and is painfully slow right now so I’m jumping with joy over here!

The jars are available in the Showroom from tomorrow. It’ll take me a little while to add them to the online shop. In the meantime please get in touch if you would like to purchase or swing by at the Showroom.

Pomegranate Soup

Beneath the holy mountain Croagh Patrick, in damp and lovely County Mayo, sits the small, sheltered village of Ballinacroagh. To the exotic Aminpour sisters, Ireland looks like a much-needed safe haven. It has been seven years since Marjan Aminpour fled Iran with her younger sisters, Bahar and Layla, and she hopes that in Ballinacroagh, a land of “crazed sheep and dizzying roads,” they might finally find a home.

New cushion covers!

If you are on my mailing list you will have received an email a couple of days ago announcing my new cushion covers!

They were supposed to be part of my 2020 collection that never came about because of the current situation out there. I hope you love them as much as I did when I first laid my eyes on them 🤩

Happy weekend!

The rainy season has FINALLY ended in Tokyo and someone switched the heat on as soon as the rain stopped! It isn’t quite as hot a in previous years (yet), fingers crossed it stays that way.

Sign up if you are not on my list yet!

Wishing you a fab weekend and keep smiling,

This month I’m … July 2020

And July it is.
Half of 2020 is gone and what a strange year it has been so far. I can’t help but wonder what the second half will bring.

The start of the summer school holidays usually goes hand in hand with quite a bit of change – families moving across continents to start new adventures elsewhere or return to their home countries. This year is no different. I said goodbye to a number of good friends and lovely customers but without sayonara parties/drinks/dinners this time round.

In the meantime I’m enjoying the somewhat cooler, albeit rainy, days before the summer heat arrives.

Keep smiling,
