I literally just got back from viewing possibly the most beautiful flat I have ever seen in my life. I've been told a million times never to exaggerate (LOL), but this flat was just THAT perfect. Some of you will know that the husband and I were about to exchange on a (dream) home, then the referendum happened, then life happened to the seller, who had to pull out. It was all rather distressing and frustrating and disappointing, but I hear it could have been worse. So. Back to the drawing board. The sad truth about the flat I just saw is that it is really far too expensive :( But owell, such is life!
After the viewing, I was so energised. I bounded on to the local flower market and then home. Some time back, I discovered India May Home, a brand new interiors brand, so I thought it was definitely time that I showed off the beautiful vases and tray that they kindly gave me. You'll have already seen some sneak peeks on Instagram - isn't the tray so stylish? It's possibly my favourite table-top item. I wanted to re-pot a small house plant with the brightest pink little flowers into one of the vessels... as usual, I made a mess but it was quite fun!
As you can tell, the designs on the tray and vessel are very South-Asian inspired. Karen Birchenough, owner/founder of India May Home wanted to create a brand that was reminiscent of her global travels, and also showed off craftsmanship. She travels out to India a fair bit to work with local artisans and workshops to create items in her collection. Do visit her website
as it's full of monochrome goodness (think laid-back Scandinavian chic) and Eastern-influenced mosaic and bone inlaid pieces (my favourite is this huge hallway mirror in a Moroccan style).
