Are we going house plant crazy?

I’m the first person to hold up my hands and admit I have been heavily influenced in my own home by the recent revival of the humble house plant. I love them in as many rooms as possible as I feel they add a natural feel to any decor and provide a sanctuary away from craziness of everyday life whatever your interior tastes are. They look just as amazing in neutral or monochrome interiors as they do in more traditional styles.

If I’m perfectly honest they remind me of my own South American background where rich foliage are evident in all situations from the houses to the streets, in shops or adding a bit of interest to boring old banks and offices to the mini jungle style parks…

 

 

Which brings me to the recent interior craze of hanging plants, more specifically string plant holders. There are so many varieties available these days and the more creative of you out there are even crocheting or knotting or more specifically macrame (ing) your own!  If this is your kind of thing I found some tutorials HERE  But for those of you like me who are not very creative with your hands you can buy them online HERE

To give you some inspiration of how effective they can look in your home take a look at these pictures taken from PINTEREST

If you love these as much as I do you can find some more inspiration on Pinterest or take a look on our website

Pray4Trax Animal Necklaces

For anyone who follows instagram, you may have come across @mrs_paulie and like me you may have admired what she has achieved in the name of a little boy called Trax who suffers with Cystic Fibrosis. Paulina and Trax’s family haven’t actually met in real life (Paulina and her family live in Australia and Trax and his family live in USA) – just over social media but the fact that so much awareness has been raised since Paulina started making the necklaces with proceeds of all sales going towards the medical costs of Trax is nothing to be sniffed at.

We recently became the first UK stockist of these necklaces and you can purchase them HERE So not only will you receive one of the most coveted animal necklaces around but you will be helping towards all the good work going towards much needed research into Cystic Fibrosis.
