Must have mugs...

How can I get these?! Great patterns and I love the simple effectiveness of the black and white scratched designs.
Take a look at HappyKO on etsy. Unfortunately it doesn't look like they ship to the UK. Boo...


Seems natural to go from stripes to checks - I'm in love with this selection of winter warming cushions and throws from Toast.

Crafts Council - Origin

So many fantastic designer-makers at the crafts council fair in the gorgeous setting of somerset house in London. Over my next few posts I'll name check a few of my start off I loved the amazing glaze colours of Lubna Chowdhary. Would look so good in my retro 70's house.
I think this colour palette, based on the mood board below, would look great used as a folky Christmas dec's trend or lively home textile accessories.


You've got to love a stripe. This trend is a constant but at the moment brighter is definitely better. Be inspired by Peruvian traditional textiles, classic french weaves or vintage knits.

Hello there.

Welcome to homeloves, my new blog celebrating all things interiors, from patterns to trends, colour, products, keyshapes, inspirational books, shops, exhibitions or anything else that happens to inspire and become my latest obsession.

Just to start off... here are a couple of photos that I found today from years ago in Paris. They were taken in Lafayette department store. Amazing architecture and gorgeous lanterns.
