Interiors - comfy knitted throw, velvet chairs and traditional accessories
This cuddly knitted throw is by Tesco and is part of the company's autumn winter range. I love the cable detail and though you can't get a great idea of its size in this image you just know it's going to be big and warm. I did take my own photograph of this at this year's Christmas in July a couple of weeks ago but alas, my iphone has stopped working and I have lost everything on it (but that's another story). The matching cushion is below - I don't love that half as much as I can just see my dog pulling it to pieces.
These retro clocks are by the Dot.com Giftshop and should be online soon ready for Christmas. They remind me of the clock on the wall in my junior school, only that one wasn't a pretty pastel colour.
Also from the Dot.com Giftshop, these butter dishes and storage canisters caught my eye. I forgot all about butter dishes - we always had one when I was growing up but I never use them. Perhaps I'll have to treat myself now though as these are so pretty.
With winter not that far away (or is it here already) these sunny colours will inject a tropical twist into your home. They make me feel happy just looking at them and the chair and stool are so soft and velvety to touch. They are from Oliver Bonas and are available in all the colours you can see swatched on the stool below.
