There’s just a little something about British style and design, isn’t there? I’m far from an skilled and of program it isn’t a monolith, but to me it is about coloration, sample, coziness, and a specific unstudied effortlessness…rattan, chintz, and stripes…rich history, touches of whimsy, brown furniture…brass beds, scalloped lampshades… it is just all the things I appreciate at the second. My Instagram feed has slowly and gradually but absolutely been thoroughly taken in excess of by British designers these days, and in the procedure I have begun becoming acquainted with a large amount of fantastic British style makes. Below are some favorites who I desire would hop across the pond and open retailers in NYC! 

Pooky Lighting

I discovered Pooky Lighting on Instagram via Louise Roe and I enjoy their things! They have lamps of all sorts as effectively as a huge selection of patterned, scalloped, and pleated lampshades, so you can genuinely combine and match and make something special. The huge draw for me is that they have the only rechargeable lamps I imagine I have ever found that I like. Rechargeable lamps are magnificent – for a bookshelf, a hallway, a aspect desk floating in the center of a area, a mantel…just about any where where by you may well not have accessibility to a plug or you really don’t want the cords about. Why there aren’t many more nice rechargeable lamps floating all over out there on the World wide web, I do not comprehend. A hole in the marketplace, rife with possibility! But in any case, Pooky is excellent. I received their Phileas rechargeable lamp and matched it with 1 of their product pleated lampshades, and I’m just so in enjoy. It’s particularly what I needed in my hallway where by there are no plugs, and the petite dimension matches completely on my minimal antique bookshelf. 

Matilda Goad

Matilda Goad has this splendidly colourful, whimsical, quintessentially British fashion, and it’s just delighted and pleasurable. She’s very best recognised for her signature scallop lampshades, but she also has tremendous really candles, charming ceramic items, colorful planters, and a lot more. I would like I had need of an ice bucket due to the fact I very seriously like this rainbow a single. 

Sarah K. Layouts

I am head more than heels in appreciate with Sarah K. Models! They have the prettiest bedding and I can not get plenty of of it – it is fantastic to blend and match. I acquired their pink ditsy quilt and pillowcases and I Appreciate them. I’ve generally had a thing for ditsy florals and so I jumped at these the minute I observed them (immediately after impatiently waiting for months for them to occur back in stock). Their bedding has revealed up on the beds of Louise Roe and Tessa Foley, two of my favs, and I’m pleased to report it’s just as excellent in human being as it appeared on the web. It’s definitely comfortable and gorgeous, and the ruffles make me so joyful! I have a US full size mattress and duvet protect, and the United kingdom King matches flawlessly. In addition to the wide range of bed linens – some patterned, some much more straightforward, some scalloped – they also have other house, bathtub, and dining objects that are just as quite. 

Pentreath and Corridor

Unquestionably in enjoy with this charming store, founded in 2008 by the super gifted British designer Ben Pentreath and incredible attractive artist Bridie Corridor. I was blessed enough to be ready to pay a visit to the shop when I was in London a million years in the past and I am dying to go back! It’s these a lovely very little position and transpires to be positioned on the most charming hidden absent street. A short while ago I lastly splurged on his Ionic Column candlesticks – I’d been eyeing them for the longest time and I’m so glad I ultimately took the plunge. They’re even more wonderful in human being than I was expecting! They look to be out of inventory or just not on the site any more, which is devastating, but they continue to have a ton of other definitely really candlesticks and coloured candles available. The Alphabet Brush Pots are a signature item and they also have a vast selection of paper products, lampshades, tableware, and even household furniture. I want we had a store like this in the US! 

Candle Flair

I talked about Candle Flair in a recent post but just have to give them yet another shout out. I Adore their gorgeous candles – the hues, the shapes…cannot get more than enough. 

Sharland England

This is Louise Roe’s homewares enterprise so you know I’m a complete fangirl. She established actually gorgeous rattan pieces with scallops and lots of beautiful very little information, and they’re just so charming and multipurpose. Just about every area can gain from a touch of rattan! She’s also offering antiques on the website. Suitable now there are a wide variety of antique wood chairs with cushions built out of really fabrics from Uk favs like Soane Britain, Penny Morrison, Veere Grenney, and others. A person or two of these chairs would add so a great deal character to any room. 

The Lacquer Company

I’ve been obsessed with The Lacquer Company for a while now and the only reason I haven’t nonetheless taken the plunge on one particular of their signature Belles Rives trays is because I simply cannot decide on a shade – they are all much too good! I’ve observed them in particular person at KRB and they’re just soaked in awesome lacquer coloration – certainly even extra gorgeous than expected. They also have lamps, mirrors, furniture, desk accessories and a lot more. 

Hum London

In latest many years I have discovered the energy of a putting lampshade, and Hum London is a good source. Launched by two sisters during lockdown, Hum London does whimsical, colorful hand-painted lampshades in a selection of entertaining, eye-catching layouts. Each and every lampshade is 1 of a type and would increase this sort of identity to any lamp!  


No surprises here – I’ve come to be a substantial enthusiast of Penny Morrison and Soane Britain, and hope to integrate fabrics from these companies into my new condominium! I’m also wondering of working with Veere Grenney’s Folly on my eating chairs. It reminds me of a fabric my Mom made use of in our dwelling rising up and I actually appreciate it!
