The thing I love the most about the interiors and home side of my blog, is when I find gorgeous items and interesting companies to share with you. Well I have just the one for you this week, a shining light in the beacon that is the work day blues. It really needed to be a good one this week, as we have just had the best weekend as a family. So I’m sat here at my desk, slightly pouting at the thought of an incredibly bust week ahead of me. Then I remember, I love my job, I get to seek out amazing new things and meet fab people. So here is my newest find Oates&Co.
Well, this is a brand new company, owned by two ladies ( Sylvia and Jane) who live locally to myself. Their taste is impeccable, I am drooling at the items that they have on offer. Gorgeous, unique, but definitely affordable, I urge you to have look at their website.
We have spent time and love putting together a collection of beautiful, unusual and useful home accessories and gifts, much of which you would be hard pushed to find anywhere else…We hope our shop inspires you to create your own beautiful, relaxed, lived-in home.
Some of my favourites are these Dipped Drain Pipe Vases, made in Britain for £22. Made by the artist Taz Pollard, who used a drain pipe as a cast. I love the pop of neon colour, which is actually made from rubber.
I was also drawn to this stunning book shelf by Icelandic design house Agustav. This is the smaller version at £70. There is something so pleasing about items like this, simple, stylish and handmade. You can even keep the bottom line of the book even and straight, great for people (like me) who like lines to be clean and unfussy.
I fell in love with this mirror though from Tanti, made of English oak. It’s so tactile, that I am tempted to not have it hanging on the wall, but propped up to use in my bedroom. It comes in three sizes, and this is the medium version. It has a handcrafted, simple, honest and beautifully made.
I instantly thought that I would like to create a collection of mid-century style plates (that I have picked up locally at a vintage fair) and hang the mirror with the plates. It still a work in progress, as I think I need another of the Tanti mirrors in a different size (can you tell I’m smitten) and a couple more plates.
Well, I’m off to gaze at my new mirror adoringly…
