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.

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

Retro Chairs

How cool are these chairs? I first saw them at a trade fair in Paris and fell in love with them straight away. At first I thought they were vintage as I admired them from afar but as I got closer I realised they were new but designed to look like a chair straight from the 50′s.

These cute chairs are designed by a French company called Les Gambettes and they also make little desks which accompany the chairs as well as adult sized tables and chairs.  For now we have ordered the little chairs only but next time we will definitely go for the desks too.

Delivery should be with us soon and I can’t wait!

Spotted THIS and THIS over on pinterest and so want to recreate these rooms for my own children!

See you soon

Maison & Objet Paris

We just got back from Paris after visiting the world famous Maison & Objet, the trade fair for home, lifestyle, accessories and toys. In fact all the things we love at Home & Kids. And guess what?…I think you’re going to love what’s heading our way very soon!

Unfortunately taking photos at the actual exhibition wasn’t permitted…and they meant it. And after hearing some horror stories from some of the exhibitionists, I can’t say I blame them. A couple of very big high street retailers have been known to copy designs from independents, who have developed their own brand of products, have really thought about the quality, design and aesthetics. And before you know it, the same design is being sold at a fraction, and I mean a fraction of the price on the high street. Needless to say there are some big legal battles going on as we speak and 9 times out of 10 the big names win. This is why, for me, it’s so important to support independent designers. They really care about their products and who gets to sell them because they want to protect the integrity of the design. The high streets are already turning into replicas of each other with all the same big retailers all over England. But hopefully with enough of us independent retailers around, we can offer customers variety and something special that you can’t pick up in any high street you go to.

I’ll let you know when these lovely items arrive!
