Those lovely chaps over at Mini Moderns have been working their magic again with a fabulous range of ceramic ware in collaboration with Wild and Wolf. Mini Moderns do mid-century inspired beautifully, and I am hankering over the 3 piece snack stack, mugs and tumblers. And I promise it’s nothing to do with the super-cool peg board […]
We do like to see unusual subjects featured on prints, and alpacas are certainly not run of the mill! This fab piece by Lu West comes in four colours (ochre, green burnt sienna and cobalt blue), is A3 size and can be purchased unframed, £39, or framed, £85. A couple mounted on the wall together […]
Props to Cissy Wears for introducing us to Danish design company w:form, the brainchild of illustrator Wenche Nevalainen. As gurus of all things monochrome, CW are stocking the minimalist alphabet poster, £20, in their fab store. A look at w:form’s website revealed additional treasures – colourful ABC, vehicle and number block prints, from €25, and […]
I’m a big fan of the lightbox – maybe it stems from my magazine background – but they’ve always been out of my price range. Hurrah then for the brilliantly named A Little Lovely Company who have brought out some fabulously affordable lightboxes to add your own bespoke message to. They come in three sizes […]
So simple, but so fabulous, these mini monochrome prints of a koala, a panda and a polar bear were created by German artists Snug Studio. They cost a bargainous €6.90 (plus €3.90 p&p to the UK) for all three and are ideal nursery decoration – just imagine all three framed and mounted in a line.
You loved our printables for children’s rooms (judging by the amount of shares that post received), so now we’re focusing on you, with fab free printables for grown-up spaces. Design Editor is offering her vintage Seagull camera image, plus an additional image of a vintage Brownie camera as a free download for you to […]
Now it’s not very often we write about things as mundane as tissues on BG, but Atissu is worth a mention! Atissu is a new brand which has decided to make every day items a little more lovely and they’ve succeeded pretty well with their debut range of contemporary boxed tissues; my two have been all over […]
The super cool Reaching Rainbows print by Dallas Clayton is totally covetable. It’s a six-colour hand pulled silkscreen on Coventry Rag, 100% cotton archival paper. I adore it. It’s not cheap at $200 (that’s about £130) but consider it a future heirloom. Each one is signed and numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity. It’ll […]
If I lived in one of those Instagrammable houses with endless bare white walls, I’d definitely be investing in all three of these coastal prints by Bold & Noble. As it is, my walls are covered in art and photos, but I’m definitely going to try to squeeze one of them in. I think the muted […]
Lola’s asked for a science party “with real life potions” for her next birthday party. I know that’s a tall order so I’ve been hunting the internet for budget-friendly inspiration and have, of course, been pinning it all (see here). That’s how I came about Jay. Jay has some really cool mugs, plates, glasses, gift wrap, cards […]
If you’re looking for a child’s chair or two, hot foot it over to The Milk List right now and grab their Bamco school chairs. They’re only £35! The metal frames have been painted in pink and mint, which look great against the aged wood (and there’s yellow ones on the way). The wooden seats and […]
Owls. We can’t get enough of them. Yup, they’re still going strong, even in light of the rise of the badger and fox. Here’s a particularly stylish one, in the form of a striking limited-edition print by artist Paul Farrell. It’s A3 size, and cost £65, Nook.
The tooth fairy has been to visit Alfie twice, but she left empty handed each time – first tooth swallowed, second lost in Waitrose (yes, really). She still paid up though as we wrote a note explaining the unfortunate circumstances, but it must have been disappointing for her. I feel sure she wouldn’t be disappointed […]
I need one of these handmade wooden jars in my life. Designed by Copenhagen-based Studio Arhoj, the birdies are carved from sustainable princess wood and stand at 16cm (Little Bird, about £23) and 20cm (Big Bird, about £26) high. Ideal for a woodland-themed nursery (or my dressing table) and available from the always fabulous Acne Jr.
We zipped over to Firle Vintage Fair at the weekend (well worth checking out next year if you find yourself in Sussex) and my eyes were immediately drawn to a stall piled high with fabulous animal cushions. Brighton-based Maria Tilyard makes fantastical creatures from vintage fabrics and her creations range from the domestic […]
