Life in Hove
Here comes the sun at last and we could not need it more could we?
On my regular walking commutes to work along the Hove seafront it has been so uplifting to see smiling faces and a general feeling of lightness creep into our day to day. The sea swimmers have upped their game and have doubled in numbers in the last 10 days. I have been in awe all through the Winter of those that swim all year round, it is just incredible to me. I love to people watch as I amble along enjoying the eclectic mix of different threads of life all woven together in the fabric of the seafront.
This month we are focusing on exquisite exteriors as we turn our attention to our outside spaces may they be large or small.
I like the feeling of spilling into the outside seamlessly and keeping the aesthetic and style of the inside where you can using texture and colour. Rattan is having a moment and our range of woven lanterns which start at an extra small size and come in 5 sizes maxing up to the extra large which is 72cm tall look stunning grouped together on a deck or patio. They have a large glass insert in which to burn pillar candles or tea lights and the smallest size looks pretty dotted around on the outside table. Their natural willow wood and rope handle ensure they are versatile enough to blend with any exterior style.
We have a beautiful hammock with fringing that evokes an Ibizan vibe and looks just as good on a stand as between 2 trees. Dress it with a jungle leaf cushion a cocktail and a tan. To add a little warmth and a tactile touch the parker sheepskin in the palest of greys looks beautiful strewn over an outside dining chair or can be laid across the lap when it is chilly.
Feel Abroad at Home
For a Morrocon feel how about a pair of simply stunning metal gold lanterns on feet with glass doors which are divine, they also look fabulous inside too. We have plenty of lanterns, pillar candles and pretty glass tealights too so that you can be creative and really have fun with your outside space.
I am looking to forward to what the rest of the month may bring and it has been a joy to welcome customers back to shop with us in real life. As always we are here for you if you need us and happy to help. Enjoy!
