One of the things I like best about running our little online shop is imagining the things we’ve carefully chosen in their new homes, being looked at and loved by their new owners. However, it’s not something we often get to see, so when customers share their photos with us it always brings a huge smile to my face.
Earlier this week, Jen, who writes the lovely Little Birdie blog posted some photos of her newly-decorated bedroom showing Decorator’s Notebook accessories playing their part in her fresh new look. I feel so proud that our collection has helped her create such a beautiful and relaxing room.
I love this simple Shaker-style peg rail. They’re so great in bedrooms as they’re practical but attractive too. Jen’s used hers to display some of her favourite objects, including a sweet vintage fern print in one of our double-sided copper picture frames.
Jen’s vintage sari kantha quilt from our collection looks so beautiful against the heritage-white backdrop of this room. I adore how the pink and turquoise colours sing out so joyfully. I know that Sabina from Basha, who lovingly made this quilt, will be over the moon to see if looking so lovely, way over on the other side of the world!
I don’t know about you, but I’d love to have bedroom as pretty and relaxing as Jen’s to enjoy a cup of tea in bed on a Sunday morning… a dipped terracotta cup, naturally!
I really admire Jen’s philosophy when it comes to her home. She doesn’t like buying mass-produced things and as a result, her room is full of so much beauty and warmth. It’s a perfect example of how a home can be simple and cosy all at once, using carefully-chosen decorative pieces with meaning. As a small retailer it matters so much to us that lovely people like Jen support us and other independent brands – visit her blog to explore more of her favourite independent shops and discover the sources of the other gorgeous elements in her room. Thank you so much Jen for letting us share these photos and, if you’ve bought from us and would like to show us how your purchases have settled into your home, we’d be over the moon to hear from you!
