Sorry it’s been a week since my last post. I’ve been busy gallivanting around the country shooting lovely reader homes for Ideal Home’s September issue. A little something to share with you though this fine Friday is House of Rym’s chinaware, available from Couverture soon. House of Rym founders are a Tunisian and Swedish duo who worked with Swedish designers Anna Backlund and Elisabeth Dunker to create this beautiful range of porcelain that I simply LOVE…

It’s delicate with clean lines yet whimsical with a natural woodland feel…

Mmmm, don’t you just love the monochrome pattern on this teapot!? Feel’s a little Marimekko-esque crossed with Lisa Stickley

The blue and white lattice style pattern on the cup below reminds me of a modern take on Royal Copenhagen’s blue fluted design…

Teapot, £59; cup, £12; saucer, £12; milk jug, £29.

Yet again, scrummy Scandi design at it’s best! Another something for the wish list. Keep an eye on the Couverture website come June. – Alice

NEW Isak wallpaper

August 31, 2010

Are you embracing the current fad for all things geometric? Do you find yourself ogling the Louvre Pyramid? Got a bit of a ‘thing’ for triangles? Clutching a protractor? If you answered ‘yes’ to one or more of the above, have we found some wallpaper for YOU. Designer Sandra Isaksson has just released two stunning new designs: Nova Mist and Nova Dawn.

I’ve been a fan of Isak‘s Penguin papers and fun trays for a while – have a peep at the Isak website if you haven’t already! According to the ‘ABOUT’ page, “all Isak products are part hand made by trolls”. Another good reason to shop there, surely. – Ellie
