Fred Shand at Anthropologie

UK based designer Fred Shand has designed a range of quilts and cushions for Anthropologie, in collaboration with a selection of artisans from Delhi, London and New York.

Although they’re only available in the US – and at quite a price ($998 for a quilt, $198 for a cushion) –  each design is unique and well worth a look, combining charmingly chaotic patchwork with striking graphics and washed out colours…. Perfect scruffy luxury.

From Agatha Christie to I, Claudius, now everyone can have their very own library. Kill the Kindle, save the book.

Peep show: Anthropologie Kings Road

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.
