heals s/s14 home collection...

Would you believe that Heals began trading as bed-makers in 1810, 
started by John Harris Heal in Rathbone Place, London
 and subsequently five generations leading at the helm. 

In 1818 the store moved into 203 Tottenham Court Road, 
then the centre of Regency London's furniture trade, 
offering its customers the opportunity
 to view the mattresses being hand-stitched
 and constructed in the feather dressing mill behind the store. 

It was John Harris Heal Junior who oversaw
 the construction of the purpose built shop at 196-198 Tottenham Court Road, 
then the largest department store in London
 and where the store remains to this day. 

Heal's foray into furniture design and retailing
 began with Sir Ambrose Heal in the mid 1890s
 and the rest, as they say, is history...

There's a fascinating insight into
 all 5 generations of the Heals family,
 on the wonderful heritage page on the Heal's website. 

Back to today, and a few of my favourite
 stunning shots from the new S/S 14 range for you to enjoy!

dwell spring/summer 2014


For the latest S/S lookbook feature, 
we have the 2014 Dwell furniture range for you. 
This High Street chain offers a range of stylish, but affordable pieces, 
with their latest collection described as
 'a mature approach with an element of fun.'

 There are some great retro-inspired pieces
 and a few fun pops of colour for the Spring season.
Pieces combine elements of natural wood, leather, 
solid marble and colour blocking-
I particularly like the look of the boundary sideboard in the last shot-
a stunning combination of grey and pink!
Dwell is particularly well known for its space-saving
 and storage solutions and even took part in
 a furniture challenge episode of The Apprentice last year!

You can see the full S/S range on the www.dwell.co.uk website.

Have a great weekend and see you next week!

the march issue...spring


For the March edition of the fab Urban Jungle Bloggers series, 
by Judith and Igor (see below), the theme is Spring/Easter. 
We have two cherry and one quince tree in our garden 
and nothing signifies Spring more to me than blossom. 

The quince still has a few days before it comes out, 
but I managed to get a couple of branches from
 the neighbours trees as well as our own!!
 The hellebores are thriving, so next time 
I'll shoot the pink and the quince together. 

Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy my little contribution to UJB-
thanks Igor and Judith 
for creating such an inspiring group!

launch...habitat spring/summer 2014



habitat


A simple, pared down approach is the theme for 
Habitat's Spring/Summer 2014 collection, 
which is split into 5 stories;
 transparent, optic, organic, 
functional and 
geometric. 

Each collection features
a play on material, 
colour and texture, but all
sharing Habitat's statement ethos
 of fun, affordable and statement design-pieces
that are enduring, inventive and affordable.

Founded in 1964 to make
 outstanding design accessible to all, 
Habitat is still a force to be
 reckoned with on the high street.
 Moving with the times and adapting to
 the nation's changing shopping habits, 
they have opened over 16 mini stores nationwide,
 as well as 3 London flagship stores. 

2012 saw the launch of 'Platform', 
an innovative design initiative and 
gallery space in the Kings Road store, and now hosts
 design exhibitions throughout the year. 

The Habitat blogazine was launched in 2013, 
providing image led inspiration in 
home decoration, design and 
behind-the-scenes stories
 for all us die-hard Habitat fans out there.

Here are some of my favourite picks for the Season...
any favourites for you?!

urban jungle bloggers...
one plant 3 ways.


Each month, bloggers Igor from Happy Interior 
and Judith from Joelix 
set a them for their Urban Jungle Bloggers project, 
tapping into the current hot trend for plants in the home. 

Last month's edition was to style one plant three ways, 
and attracted hundreds of fantastic responses, 
all of which can be seen on the social media links below.

I was particularly excited to join in with the styling theme,
 but with a mad work month and busy kids clubs,
 I'm only just posting now-1 whole month late!
 I hope you enjoy my little shots!
