Catalogue comfort

There's something so comfortable about browsing through catalogues with a mug of tea, isn't there. I remember as a young girl going through the family Next catalogue and La Redoute, picking out outfits I liked and critiquing my big sister's choices!

I've just finished shooting Coco Male's new catalogue with brilliant London based photographer, Corin Brown. Here's a sneak peak of some of my favourites - I'd love to hear what you think...?

If you so desire, you can view the entire collection on my website.

The Heads of State

I've fallen head over heals for these limited edition and hot off the press screenprints by The Heads of State. With geometric pattern and bright coloured graphic artwork in high demand this season, these are the ultimate accessory to any plainly decorated wall.
These three are definitely my favourite of the bunch. The three to six serigraph posters are in a run of 100 making them limited edition... so snap one up quick!

For once I think my boyfriend, Ben, a graphic designer by day, will approve of my decision to bring these travel posters into our home - you should have seen his face when I brought home two vintage patchwork cushions. A picture!

Wood + wool stools

I recently discovered these quirky little stools and immediately feel in love with their earnest nostalgia and inventive design. Ingrid Jansen started in 2008 by taking a little old wooden stool and giving it a lovingly crocheted seat cover, now she's featured on every important blog and regularly makes her stamp in the press with her must-have accessories. Right on trend with the thrifty crocheted look, which has taken London by storm, these Dutch hand-made heirlooms are selling like hotcakes.

I think these custom crocheted keepers could be described as 'trendy urban meets handmade country', as they would look positively adorable in any interior! The perfect accessory to a colourful child's bedroom or a cute living space...

Featured Stylist

Ali Bradshaw, a regular contributor to BBC Good Homes and Country Home & Interiors magazine, is my featured stylist of the moment. Trawling the net for inspirational design to share with you, I came across Ali's work through one of my favourite haunts - Decor8blog. I just adore the way she balances her traditional style with light, airy elegance. What do you think of her styling? Do you have a favourite image?
