A Stylish Jubilee…

I’m going to be honest here and say that the Jubilee fever has somewhat passed me by, partly being on holiday and partly because I’m going to be in Scotland for the Jubilee holiday at a family wedding. That’s not to say that I’m a nay-sayer or anti-royalist, I quite enjoy the royal family and would have liked to see the festivities and celebrate, as it is, I’ll be in the most anti-royalist part of the country I think!

What I have noticed a distinct asbence of however, is tasteful souvenirs and commemorative items, which is why there has been a distinct lack of coverage aimed at the jubilee on the blog. I have been pleasantly suprised however by a few of my favourite interiors stores producing select pieces with a nod to the jubilee and thought they were worth a round up. I’m particularly loving the crown adorned items, subtly celebrating the occasion but with much more longevity and a touch of whimsy.

Amongst my favourites are the corgi and crown motifs Thornback and Peel have produced, looking just hand-drawn enough to be unique, and just stylish enough to be a finishing touch.


Corgi and Crown tea Towels // Corgi apron // Union Jack napkins // All Thornback and Peel.

Need a shot of Regal style in your home this year? You’d never know these stylish finds were celebrating the Jubilee rather than being Rule-Brittania-Cool…


Tongue in cheek ‘I Rule’ print // Q tile // God Save the Queen // Queen Elizabeth II cushions // All Rockett St George.

Did I ever think I would dress up in red, white and blue themed items whilst coming over all patriotic. I dare say I would in these beauties…


Toga dress, Vivienne Westwood Anglomania // True British Alice Temperley by Alice Temperley hardcover book // Vintage union Jack print wellington boots, Hunter // Crown sequined merino wool sweater, Markus Lupfer // Soldiors vest, Aubin and Wills // All at Net-a-Porter

So, tell me readers, what are you doing for the bank holiday weekend? I’m looking forward to hearing your celebration plans and if any of these pieces take your fancy!

Love,

Found: Thornback and Peel

As I’m still on the (what feels like a) never ending quest to put the finishing touches to my dining and living room decorating that started all the way back in November, I’m keeping my eyes seriously peeled for stylish finishing touches to a room. Today’s find is definitely going to be finding it’s way into my dining room, probably by way of these quirky napkins, but there’s plenty of other ways I could incorporate them with ease… introducing Thornback and Peel.

I am absolutely in love with the way they have made their range of prints look so quirky with the bright colours. No surprise that I’m obsessing over the pinks, the greys, the blue, the greens, the yellows… the nostalgic jellies, the cheeky pigeons, the culinary and allotment references with rabbits and cabbages.

It’s not just napkins that Thornback and Peel do however, with a huge range of items you can add to your home. I first found the cushions (the pink jelly and grey pigeon one in Selfridges actually,) but the website lists fabrics, stationery, tea towels, deck chairs and heart stopping wallpaper.



I couldn’t have kept it all from you, even if I had wanted to and I think they would make great gifts too. Do go and have a look around at Thornback and Peel online.

Do you love?

Love,
