HOT SHOP: Alison Milner

January 7, 2011

Tree silhouettes are – as we say in the trade – so hot right now. Think spidery branches twisting and curling against a grey winter sky. Head to Alison Milner for beautiful prints of oak trees sketched on the South Downs – often featuring a sinister magpie or two:

I took lots of snaps of wintery trees over Christmas – I think Alison’s artwork captures the shapes of trees beautifully. She also likes retro kitchenalia…

…and leaves!

As if that wasn’t enough, Alison also makes retro bespoke formica coffee tables and cute little porcelain badges…so many treats!

Why can’t I get over my thing about crows and birds in general? Still trying to convince the boyfriend that having a big black evil-looking plastic crow (eg, from Caravan) in the living room is cool – and not in a garden gnome or Hitchcock way, but no luck yet. Also, I’m rather envious of our stylist Robin’s (appropriate name!) new Christmas gift – a pink pigeon light by Ed Carpenter. The birds, the birds, the birds! – Ellie
