Smallprint

YES banner by Secret Holiday Co

Yes Banner by Secret Holiday at Shak Shuka

One of my favourite things is this YES banner by Secret Holiday which I was gifted with last Christmas by my pal Jos at Shak-Shuka.

ZooperPets cushions

Zooperpets

How cute are these wool felt animal cushions from Danish design duo What We Do (aka Hanne & Tobias Scheel Mikkelsen). I think what I love about them is that they’re a departure from the traditional animals – no owls or foxes here, choose from a rhino, squirrel or seal – and the fact that they’re […]
