Made by Hand BookGetting crafty doesn't come as natural to me as, say, styling a room would.

Happy Home by Charlotte Hedeman GueniauI thought I was a fan of colour and extremely adverse to the use of beige until I picked up Happy Home by the founder of Danish homewares company RICE, Charlotte Hedeman Gueniau. It clearly states from the get-go that not all Danish design is about cool and calm interiors and I must admit, the whole ethos of the book being fun, colour and enjoyment speaks to me like the new Pope speaks to the man upstairs (and I sometimes talk back)!

P1090489There's a homewares store I've been going to for years now, every time a birthday rolls around and I want to present a gift to someone that oozes heart and warmth; it's called Humble Beginnings and it's quite possibly my favourite homeswares store (and ok - you got me - sometimes I go there when there are no upcoming birthdays and I just want a wow moment!).
