Our Ever Changing Home Pages ....... and a little bit of "Coastal Cool"

|

Hi Everyone

Some of you might have picked up that we change our home page virtually every week .....

I don't deny, it takes quite a bit of time and effort to do this - but we feel that it's a great way to show our product in situ - and well .....  I think/hope it brings it all to life in a way!!

Anyways - last week's home page showed some our product styled as a vignette ....

..... virtually everything in this image is available from our shop. I talked a little about this type of display in my earlier blog entitled "style tips for creating displays and vignettes".

Although these gorgeous linen wash bags and make up bags are just in, we're already sold out of the (large) wash bags. Looks like the rest of you love them as much as I do :) More on the way !!

A few of you commented that it was helpful to see a range of our products coordinated and displayed in this way.The woollen star cushions have been our top seller btw .....

Stuart and I had a little brain storming session to come up with words that describe our style ethos .... and this made up the fourth "banner image" ....

I guess, this sums us up pretty accurately :)

We have just put out this week's home page - and the current set of banner images is undoubtedly about "Coastal Cool".

I adore homes with a contemporary coastal feel - and in many ways, I don't necessarily think you have to live on the water's edge to draw inspiration from the coast. After all, lots of folk are inspired by French homes - even though they don't live in France :)

First up ...

Regular readers will know that I am a huge fan of crisp white bedding - as well as the cushions and floor lamp (which we stock), this image previews an exciting development for us .......

Yes - we shall soon be stocking our very own range of stunning white bedding ..... our order is being made in a little Portuguese factory as we speak !!! Quite possibly the most pure white fabric I have ever seen !!! More on that to follow.

 Mother Nature is undoubtedly one of "thee best" sources of inspiration .....

I love this image - it was taken not too far away - I think I feel a looooong walk on the beach coming on to blow the cobwebs away !!

Next up - a few of my favourite things .....

Feather filled, soft, tactile, simple, crisp ...... you can never have enough gorgeous cushions :)

And finally, the fourth banner image of the set ....

I tend to like coastal style with a 'contemporary country' twist - though a more traditional style works too!! Whatever your style, what I would urge is that you avoid overly 'themed' mass-produced coastal accessories - a piece of interesting driftwood or a bowl filled with pebbles is so much nicer than cheaply made accessories !!!

Anyways - I hope you enjoy seeing our bits and pieces in situ along with a little insight into our style ethos.

Next up - a "very fine makeover" !!

All for now Folks

Take Care
