I am generally a bit of a cold shower where Valentine’s Day is concerned (sorry) but on the upside, I am massively in favour of a little bit of love for your home. There are some delightful and thankfully subtle home accessories that add a little bit of joyful romanticism into your personal space, which will still be welcome once February 14th is done and dusted, and I am a very big fan of these. Here are some of my current favourites.

Gold framed heart by Hello Geronimo

Made up of lots of gold foil hearts on a midnight blue background, this fab collage from Hello Geronimo makes a big loving statement without a trace of schmaltz.

Rockett St George Love Neon sign

Neon is very in at the moment (we have finally got the idea Tracey) and the LOVE sign from Rockett St George looks great against a dark wall. You can also buy KISS and LUCKY – so take your pick!

Cox and cox two heart stools

Angelic and useful, these two heart stools from Cox and Cox are made from limed Mango wood and are perfect for children.

nina campbell china

This delightful bone china tea set made from Nina Campbell was originally produced in the 70s and has recently been relaunched. You can buy the whole set or individual pieces.

Bliss and Bloom two heart shaped bowls

Really useful and elegant as well, these lovely heart shaped bowls from Bloom and Bliss have a flavour of France about them, which is always appropriate on Valentine’s day!

Willow and Stone Tau heart hooks

Hearts seem to work so well in traditional ironmongery and I love these Tau heart hooks from Willow and Stone

Graham and Green Heart backed chair

And finally this delicate and delightful heart backed chair from Graham and Green makes a wonderful occasional chair or in rows around your dining table.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all, and may love be present in your homes.

The Sid Dickens Studio recently sent one of their lovely Memory Blocks to inform us of their work, which we are delighted with!

Sid Dickens is famous for his striking Memory Blocks, which are collected by many all over the world. These curious and charming plaster art wall plaques are designed by Sid and hand made by the highly skilled artisans from their studio in Vancouver. They are a versatile piece for the home that can be used as individual items or placed together for a mosaic effect

With a long background in design Sid comes up with his ideas by experimenting with ancient symbols, natural textures and botanical themes, resulting in designs that are whimsical, nostalgic and striking.

Here are some of my favourites from a variety of his collections.
