Bunnies for life (not just for Easter)

If, like me, you adore HAM’s prints featuring the quirky antics of a unflappable rabbit going about his daily business (as they do), then you’ll love artist Jo’s latest designs:

The yoga print is my favourite – the perfect gift for a real life yoga bunny?

With a long weekend in sight, who knows, maybe you’ll be joining him as he takes up yoga, does a little DIY, or heads to the seaside (let me know if you make it to the trapeze…)

Shop the prints, plus cards and bone china mugs directly at HAM.

Happy Easter! Jx

Curl up, relax (and admire…) Sofa.com and Abigail Ahern: new furniture

Get set for an exciting collaboration this autumn between two of Britain’s most respected and accessible interior brands: interior and product designer Abigail Ahern and upholstery designer/manufacturers Sofa.com who have created their first collection together.

sofa.com Abigail Ahern Abigail 3 Seat Sofa in Hudson £1810, Maud rectangular footstool in Dusty Rose £255

The three seater Abigail sofa, like the other pieces in the collection, can be upholstered in any of Sofa.com’s own house fabrics or a designer fabric, should these not appeal, though I can’t help thinking that these velvets (Hudson Roosevelt on the sofa, and Dusty Rose pink on the footstool) would be hard to beat.

sofa.com Abigail Ahern Abigail Sofa in Hudson £1810

As well as the must-have Abigail sofa, the collection includes this curvy, curl-into Stanley armchair, shown here upholstered in Baltic Roosevelt velvet:

sofa.com Abigail Ahern Stanley Armchair in Baltic £750 And my favourites: two cross-legged footstools, which work hard for their designated space: whether covered with clothes at the foot of a bed; with feet at the end of a sofa, or as extra seating when space becomes tight at a party….

Choose from square Celeste, below in Prussian Blue Velvet:

sofa.com Abigail Ahern Celeste Footstool in Prussian Blue £255

…. and Maud, a rectangular version that is large enough to use as an ottoman replacement or as a side table:

sofa.com Abigail Ahern Maud Footstool in Dusty Rose £255

With prices from £1240 for the Abigail sofa; £580 for the Stanley armchair, and £225 for the Maud footstool, the collection is definitely on my shopping list… Visit sofa.com for more information and to order online.

White and creams brought to life with oranges, rusts, and reds:

Navajo-style stripes:

And lots of metals, such as this mirrored table set… This appeals, as it’s sold as a set of three tables, yet works just as well as one single console or side table:

And in the bathroom, the textiles and accessories are, as always, a strength: this autumn you’ll find pared down versions of their wilder patterns in softer tones, plus roughly textured baskets, stools and storage:

All just in, at Zara Home. Happy September! Jx

Blown away: pendant lighting in a rainbow of shades

The beautiful hand-blown glass pendant lights created by Rothschild & Bickers just serve to emphasise my indecisiveness: how can I choose just one? But their Pick N Mix collection of simple glass pendants should help me out: aptly named, the lights come in a range of several pared-down shapes, and look wonderful as a varied group:

First, choose the shapes:

R&B pendant lights via findthedetails.com

Then there’s the colour to think about: naturally I’m drawn to this blue / grey Denim palette:

R&S pendant lights via findthedetails.com

But lovers of brights will be happy:

Finally, say goodbye to boring white flexes:

… then hang and enjoy! They’d look wonderful in a light-filled hallway, kitchen and kitchen/diner…anywhere with a ceiling, basically…

If these shapes are too simple, you can confuse matters more by browsing their other products. This Flora pendant is both highly decorative and elegant:

And I love the curvaceous Bubble pendant:

Owner Francesca sources a mix of beautifully made, fair trade furniture, home accessories and jewellery that you won’t find elsewhere. Perfect for gifts (and for yourself!) here are my favourites from the spring collection:

Arambol bench, made from mango wood with a hand-woven jute seat, above: benches are perfect for hallways, of course, but I’d also love this as part of a simple, rustic bedroom scheme. Mimosa Street vase via findthedetails.com

This delicate vase can also be suspended – I’m hoping to hang several together in a group…..
