Just when I thought Liberty couldn’t squeeze in another amazing collaboration, they prove me wrong. The Liberty of London for Target range is finally here and looks even better than I’d hoped; above are my top picks.
Apart from cups, plant pots, candles, tops and dresses and other homey things, the range also features some really funky DIY products, including colourful gardening gloves and a wonderful retro watering can.
But my favourite piece has to be the piggy bank with his cute floral rump.
Door mats are not something to which I habitually devote much attention. Scuffed and muddy, I tend to look beyond the door mat to the room itself, and have had my fill of those ones with boring slogans like “home sweet home”. But then I saw these, from Cotswolds-based company Burford, that made me think twice.
I came over all wistful and nostalgic when I saw that age-old Antiquarius on the Kings Road was closing down.
But I got over it as soon as I heard that Anthropologie – who can’t put a foot wrong right now – were revamping the space.
I think it looks amazing, and will be a great source of inspiration for young London homemakers. The highlight for me, which unfortunately lost its lustre in the photos, is a miniature greenhouse filled with white and purple hyacinths. One sniff and you’re in retail heaven.
If you haven’t made it to the new store, here are the best bits.
Never before have I lusted after a frilly apron.
This little DIY project is a really easy way to personalise candles for a little present of just for your own home.
What you need: votive, tissue paper, rub-on stencils or a pen (and a steady hand), glue.
What to do: Cover the votive in glue and wrap tissue paper around it. If it creases, don’t worry – I think this adds to the effect. Then stencil or draw your words of choice, light the candle and… nest in peace.

I love the Print & Pattern blog and always snoop around there for inspiration. I was so excited to see their new book, brimming with kitsch and colourful prints.
Editor Marie Perkins (aka Bowie Style) describes it as “a selection of works by fabulous designers from all over the world, united by a love of printed pattern.”

As I am moving flat soon (fingers crossed), I woke up today in urgent need of inspirational shots, before all my ideas become too muddled and I lose all direction. I thought I would share my top three with you – a winning mixture of modern luxury and ragged charm.
