make your nest the best

People we’re loving: Helen Rawlinson

Cushion cover, £22

My friend Ariadna, who knows more than anyone when it comes to alternative therapies in London and beyond, recently  pointed me in the direction of a wonderful wellbeing website and directory called The Baoli. Here, not only will you find a host of alternative and holistic therapies and practitioners, as well as a thriving online community of like-minded people offering up their latest alternative finds – you can also browse a carefully curated section devoted to living and the home. It is there that I recently discovered Helen Rawlinson’s sumptuous hand printed textiles – and they are worth shouting about.

Tea towels, £9 each

Large pendant shade, £69

Based in London, Helen screen prints all her textiles by hand in an old converted chocolate factory. She uses only water-based inks and unbleached organic cotton and has become best-known for her signature Moroccan tile print – simple, bright and boldly exotic. She also writes a lovely blog charting her life as a working mother and “how it all works”, and it is a breath of inspiration to mothers and creative minds alike.


Slim cushions, £28

Halloween trick or treat mini bag, £6.50

You can buy her collection at, or through her blog.
