HOT SHOP: PiP Studio

January 13, 2010

Fresh from the Netherlands, the Dutch answer to Cath KidstonPiP Studio is about to hit the UK. Think Greengate-meets-Rice…pretty florals, bright colours and a huge dose of vintage charm.

(Note the bell jar – ding dong! Really need to get over this.)  Launching in the UK this spring, PiP Studio products will be hitting shops such as Berry Red, Liberty and possibly bigger chains like John Lewis any time now.

Feast your eyes on this floral fest, lovely people…

Ooooh, I like that blue towel with the orange flowers – bit like a Hawaiian shirt, but in a good way!! Some cute cushions here, too.

There’s nothing like a spot of pretty china for a Wednesday afternoon…

I’ve just had a quick look at a new book, due out this March – Decorating with Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen. Now, I’m not really into the whole swirly damask LLB style (and there are some fairly hideous interiors in this book to be sure! Pebble-look carpet tiles, anyone? Or perhaps you’d prefer a floor-to-ceiling parkland vista wall mural?? Even circa 1990, surely these were a bit dodge…) but I was impressed by the simple step-by-step decorating ‘how-to’ section in the second half, so it’s our book of the week. If you’re a hardcore LLB fan, see our April issue to find out how to steal his ‘style’! – Ellie
