Dandy Star Lights

New additions to the shop are these super cool light boxes by Dandy Star featuring the words ‘Magic’ and ‘Star’  I love the fresh, modern feel to these lights and they would make the perfect addition to any bedroom – whatever the style! There’s not many lights that can do that.

We’ve luckily managed to get a small number to sell on the website and they’re available to purchase HERE

If you have any questions or enquiries regarding these lights or anything else on the website or blog, please don’t hesitate to get in contact.

Compagnie de Provence

Compagnie de Provence are our latest addition to HK Collection. It’s a brand I have admired for a few years but for one reason or another, never got round to ordering…until now. After seeing them at Maison Objet in Paris, I was once again drawn in by the wonderful aromas, story behind the brand and packaging. I came away with some lovely little samples, which I’m still using now and I have to admit – that convinced me to finally take the plunge and make my first order.

Born out of the imagination of Pascal Bourelly and Philippe Boigeol, 2 friends from Marseille, the story of Compagnie de Provence begins in 1990 when they establish their trading company in the Panier, Marseille’s oldest district. The turning point for the company was in 1999 when Compagnie de Provence became the first brand to reinterpret the traditional cube of Marseille soap and launch its liquid version. Made from vegetable oils as its solid ancestor and crafted in a cauldron following authentic tradition.  Since then, thanks to their expertise and creativity, Compagnie de Provence has constantly been developing products dedicated to your well-being.

Little Pop Studio

Have you heard of Little Pop Studio?  I only heard of them late last year and immediately knew I had to have their batman watercolour prints for the website. We also happen to be their first UK stockist and we are kind of proud of that title!

I found them via my current favourite social media platform – Instagram I love when I find a gem and just a couple of months later it makes it to my shop. Little Pop Studio is the brainchild of Bianca Acke, a New Zealander and very talented artist who creates these prints. There is definitely a trend for batman/superheros at the moment and these are such a cool take on them.

What do you think? Cool or what! Perfect for any superhero fan whether little or big.  Now available for purchase HERE

Bedroom

My next project at home is to tackle my bedroom.  We’re lucky enough to have high ceilings and a large enough room that it shouldn’t look too cluttered…but sometimes it does!  It hasn’t been decorated in a few years, and although it’s quite neutral now, I feel it needs to be made a little warmer and as my husband says a ‘little bit of boutique hotel glamour’.

The following images are what are inspiring me at the moment but the end result is probably going to be something that is an accumulation of all things both by husband and I like.

I guess I’m drawn to simple designs. But sometimes simple designs are the hardest to create!

I think you’ll agree the above bedrooms are kind of slick and I will aspire to create something along those lines but you always need to add your own slant on it.

For personal touches, I’m thinking of using this mirror and this jewellery box from our own collection and also love the idea of using this lamp by House Doctor DK.

For bedlinen, I was so happy when Soak & Sleep reached out to me to let me know about their amazing range of bedlinen and bathroom products. They’re about to have a re-brand – formely Duvet & Pillow Warehouse and are currently having the best sale with up to 40% off all their products. So if you’ve ever dreamt of crisp white linens or need an injection of luxury in your bedroom or bathroom – go ahead and take advantage now as the SALE ends 4th March when the brand will move to their new home www.soakandsleep.com

Charlie Hunt, Founder and CEO of the brand comments; “We have become famous for fabulous bed & bath products at a fraction of high street prices and quite simply wanted a fantastic new name to match the quality of our product offering. We love Soak & Sleep as its catchy and sums us up perfectly. We have a new logo, a new website and sleek new branding to go with our name change and are really excited for what 2014 holds.”

We wish them luck with their changes. After having our own re-brand earlier on this month – it’s certainly an exciting time ahead!

In the meantime, I’m hopping over to their website -  I have my eye on THESE
