I Spy – Ferm Living – Spring 2012

You just can’t beat the sight of a Scandinavian interior to make you feel like getting out the paintbrush and the mop and bucket.  And these gorgeous images of the new Spring collections at Ferm Living are doing just that for me.

I want to tear down the curtains and…

Blogtour NYC – Sponsor – Rotsen Furniture

Another wonderful sponsor of Blogtour NYC is Rotsen Furniture.

I’m loving the global influences over at Plumo this spring.

Available from April.

Absolutely loving the new products from Reiko Kanebo.
Rather than roll out another new collection, Kanebo has returned to some of her most successful collections and produced new additional pieces for them.  Rather like updating your wardrobe each season with a few additional items that work with the old, you can…

Fresh Spring Greens for the Home…

 All it takes is a couple of warm sunny days for thoughts to start turning to the garden.  But it’s still too early to take this short reprieve for granted of course.
So bring the garden in…
