Moroccan Style

10 February 2016

The wonderful thing about Moroccan design is the way that it engages all of your senses - the vibrant colours, rich textures and warm luxurious feel. Winter is a great time to introduce some of these elements into your home. Our Moroccan blanket is hand woven by Berber women and trimmed with large pom poms. Originally used to keep out...

Velvet cushions

28 January 2016

We often get asked for suggestions on colours for cushions on a cream, grey or beige sofa. With a more neutral colour scheme, adding one or two bold colours can add some extra depth and completely change the look and feel of the room. Having cushions all the same size can look very formal, so mixing square and oblong shapes...

Choosing a front door colour

30 September 2015

Recently I was having the front of the house painted, and had to make a decision about the colour of the front door. Having lived very happily with Farrow and Ball's glossy Hague Blue, I decided it was time for a change. While researching different options, I realised that the colour of your front door can actually say a thing...

New Brass Range

15 September 2015

The first thing we always do with a new product that we are considering for the shop is to hold it in the hand, and if it feels good, there is a good chance it will make it into the range. We loved the old gold, organic finish of this range and when we held them in the hand, we...

Outdoor Dining at Chiltern Firehouse

27 July 2015

A visit to the Chiltern Firehouse was certainly a night to remember. Nuno Mendes' food was astonishingly good, and the interiors are stylish, timeless, elegant with amazing attention paid to every little detail. A little more of a surprise was how beautiful the outside space was - a real haven in central London on a summer's night!   Glossy black...

Special Sangria by Omar Allibhoy

Last year I spent a wonderful day with Omar Allibhoy of Tapas Revolution at Leith's School of Food and Wine. We learned to cook many delicious Spanish dishes, and one of the highlights  of the day was learning how to make proper Spanish sangria. Omar has developed a way for the fruit to release more flavour by making a special...

Hot Desks

08 July 2015

Before our thoughts turn to summer holidays, a quick look at some favourite desks... There's a certain energy to a red or pink desk, the colour of choice for Jenna Lyons and Sofia Coppola. Diana Vreeland's desk has always been a favourite, where she surrounded herself with all the wonderful things that inspired such iconic imagery: And then, there's the calm,...

New Arrivals for the Garden Table

30 June 2015

Well, it looks like summer is finally here, and thoughts turn to outdoor dining. We have two new arrivals to add a gentle light as the night draws in.   The first is this glass tea light holder, which is small enough to fit onto a busy table, but is reassuringly sturdy enough to withstand the evening breezes. It also...

Favourite addresses: Aero Studios, NYC

04 June 2015

One of my first stops on any visit to New York is always Thomas O’Brien’s Aero Studios in Broome Street, Soho. It’s such an inspirational place to visit, and I still love everything that I have bought there over the years. Aero was one of the very first home stores, and continues to set the standard for understated chic.  Aero...

Set the table: wood

11 May 2015

Always a popular choice for floors and furniture, wood's natural warmth and organic touch resonate with the senses. It makes a great addition to a table setting, warming up white ceramics, glass and metal cutlery.     Wooden boards and platters of bread or cheese are an easy way to add a natural touch.   Wood is the perfect material...

Warm White Kitchens

04 May 2015

White kitchens look personal and welcoming with the addition of some textural, natural or colourful finishes:   Pink flowers and bowls of fruit are an easy way to add colour, scent and texture.   It may not be the most practical room in the house to have art, but it does give the room a more lived-in look and adds character....

Favourite addresses: Ett Hem, Stockholm

28 April 2015

Recently I’ve been eyeing up the Scandanavian trade shows. If I’m very honest, the main reason is that I am looking for any excuse to stay at Ett Hem, the Stockholm based hotel designed by Ilse Crawford.  "The idea is a comfortable cultured house you can enjoy as if it is a friend's," says Crawford. "Sit in the kitchen, have...

Sofa update - pink cushions

20 April 2015

Pink, they say, is the colour of happiness - the passion of red diluted with the purity of white. What better way then to cheer up your sofa, than by adding cushions in rose, pale pink or magenta? Pale pink brings a restrained dose of colour to a cream sofa, as in the home of Jacob Holm. Rose cushions add...

Made in Brooklyn

13 April 2015

Hand poured in small batches at her Red Hook Studio, Tamara Mayne’s candles are lovingly handcrafted.   The simple, modern packaging was inspired by a collection of vintage apothecary labels. Soy is hypoallergenic, completely renewable, and will burn for 30-50% longer than an equivalent paraffin candle. Because there is no petrol-carbon soot like in traditional paraffin candles, you don’t get...

Favourite addresses: Sofia Coppola

30 March 2015

No surprise really that Sofia Coppola’s old Nolita apartment is the picture of understated chic.     Sofia’s sofas appear to have a cult following of their own, and here the George Smith Jules sofa oozes calm in that chalky blue linen.    Her signature pink peonies add colour, and her personal collection of paintings and prints by the likes...

A touch of yellow

FOG LINEN WORK

10 March 2015

Simple, useful and durable are the three words that Yumiko Sekine uses to describe her 10 year old brand Fog Linen Work, but they only begin to touch on the beauty of her linen trays.

FIRST GLASS

03 March 2015

 

When I started Home Address the first product that I knew I wanted to stock was the rounded wine glass from the oldest glassworks in France. In many ways, it sums up what Home Address is all about. Slightly heavier than the average glass, it feels just right to hold in the hand. The shape has an almost human like...
