A bit of colour on a grey day

Hello, it's been a while! The last month has flown by and I'm afraid I've rather neglected my blog. Although all has been way too quiet on the blog front, I've been very busy behind the scenes, working on new designs, researching and working with manufacturers, and getting work under way on my first products. It's hard work and a long process, but also very exciting! I can't wait to be able to share my new products, but for today I just thought I'd show you a few of the little things around my home that make me smile.

First up, clockwise from top left, some lovely design books, my Faber-Castell Pitt pens, the colourful spines of magazines on my bookshelf, and some pretty Washi tape.

A detail of one of my favourite candlesticks by Ferm Living (I have a mustard yellow one too), cheerful bowls for the kitchen, graphic, colourful tumblers I found at a vintage market and an åry tray by Alabasta.

And finally 2 tiny figurines (they are 2 inches tall) from Chania, Crete. They make me smile these two, and they're a nice reminder of a lovely holiday. A vintage style glass jar from Anthropologie, and a detail of a bowl by Paradis bought in Sweden many moons ago.
Isn't it nice to fill your home with little things that make you smile?
