Bright ideas for Spring

After what seems like the longest winter ever, warmer Spring weather is finally on it's way (hurrah!).

Now that the Easter holidays are over it seems like a good time to throw open the windows, beat the rugs and prepare the house for the months ahead.

Starting in the front garden we like to brush away the last of the Autumn leaves and create a welcoming entrance for guests.

We love the beautiful range of paint colours available from Little Greene.  They are ideal for giving your front door an instant makeover.

Adding a pretty floral door mat like our GreenGate Love Birds Coir Door Mat is perfect for creating a bold statement at the entrance to your home 
(and ensures that the carpets inside stay clean!).

This time of year is also a great excuse to declutter the house.  We love it when the house feels bright and fresh after a good Spring clean...but with little ones around, keeping it neat and tidy can be a challenge!

We love storage solutions that are pretty and practical and our canvas storage bags are perfect for hiding away all those toys and teddy bears.

Today we are also brightening up our wall with this pretty 'I Love My Garden' Shelf. It has three shelves perfect for our cups and mugs, plus four handy hooks for hanging our tea towels and keys.

Hopefully we won't lose our keys so often now!

Whether your looking for storage solutions or pretty home accessories, head over to our website and take a look at our fabulous new items for Spring.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

The inspiration behind our product range

We often get asked about how we select our product range and what inspires us.  

The truth is we try to chose products that will make people feel happy. Our products have a 'feel good factor' and lots of customers tell us that our pretty items brighten up their day.

Many of the items in our collection feature traditional floral patterns. From kitchenware and home accessories to children's items such as our adorable Floral Wigwam.

As you can probably tell from our website, we simply love flowers!  

When we were small we both lived near a beautiful country lane called Dimbath.  We loved seeing the daffodils and bluebells appear in Spring and watched as the buttercups and foxglove burst into bloom in the Summer months.

The pretty colours and beautiful smells of those flowers remind us of long hot summers exploring the countryside and they have certainly influenced our fondness of floral designs.

Last week we launched our new Country Roses range on the website 
(you might have guessed, we have a huge soft spot for roses to!).

As children we watched them grow in the gardens of our grandparents.  Their delicate petals and delightful scent are just so captivating.

In our new range you will find beautiful shabby chic pictures, cushions, kitchenware and pretty tea cups.

Just perfect for creating a country style home with lots of whimsical charm.

We regularly update our product range so keep checking the website for new stock.
