ROSS CASSIDY FOR CB2

Hi guys, today I wanted to shine the spotlight on a really cool high street / designer collaboration. I’m always excited to see affordable style on the high street, and CB2 are one of the best out there (remember their amazing collaboration with Lenny Kravitz?). For their latest collab they’ve teamed up with Mr Ross Cassidy […]

TOP TRENDS SPOTTED AT MAISON & OBJET

So last week Gem and I made a whirlwind trip to Paris for the day. Sadly not just for the sight-seeing (next time!), but to scour the Maison & Objet show. It’s one of the biggest interiors trade shows in the world so getting round it in one day was...

SHARING MY FAVOURITE SOURCES

Before I get onto today’s blog post just a bit of housekeeping stuff to run via you guys. Firstly thank you for all your amazing comments on social about the new botanical collection. It hit the Heal’s Leeds store (Red Brick Mills last week where Gem and I did the...

APPS THAT MAKE LIFE SIMPLER

Yes please I cry – I need a simpler more organised productive life – it’s bonkers right now. We’re planning the move to a new bigger more fabulous store and all that it entails– more product lines, a proper monthly schedule of themes and ideas, events, an editorial calendar, window...

FIRST LOOK AT FRENCH CONNECTION SS16

Some of our highstreet homewares stores really knock it out of the park, and one that I’m always interested to see is French Connection. Spring/Summer 2016 doesn’t disappoint. Sticking to what they do best, it’s a tightly curated little capsule collection, full of cool timeless shapes and softly tactile materials –...

FLOWER HOROSCOPES

There’s a flower for everybody! At AA HQ, we’ve been having fun delving into the history of flower symbolism and the ancient language of flowers, to play match-maker with a different bloom for every personality. (I’m a cosmos loving Capricorn, by the way!). Find your perfect match below – or perhaps surprise...

WHAT’S ON MY CHRISTMAS LIST

I know I know it’s only the 1st of December and here I am banging on about what’s on my Christmas list! People for some reason hate buying me presents, probably because I’m not the best at feigning excitement when I don’t like things! I must work on this problem more in...

Meet the new breed of florists

There’s a movement afoot, a quiet revolution gaining momentum. Lately a lot of high-powered people (mostly fashion insiders) are quitting the daily grind for a new career in guess what – floristry. Seriously cool people, from Taylor Tomasi Hill in NYC to Jordana Simpson in Sydney, to Joost Bakker in Melbourne. They’re...

Kravitz cool at CB2

How do you go about combining louche-y swagger with touches of rocker glam, and a healthy dose of Californian cool? It’s a mix that’s super hard to get right, but this new highstreet collection nails it! The genius behind this collection is none other than Mr Lenny Kravitz, so no surprise that he can...

CURRENTLY ON MY RADAR

I have this ever growing list of things on my radar, and I thought it might be quite fun to share with you guys. Concepts, materials, styles and inspirations pop into my head regularly so I jot them down, generally half-forget about them mostly. But then something will spark an idea...

FASHION+INTERIORS = MAGIC

At last year’s Frieze Masters there was an incredible art installation, called The Collector. The installation was laid out as a lived-in apartment, similar to the mini-house sets we try to create at Maison Objet and the other trade shows. It was barely there for a week, but the amount...

BEST OF THE BLOGS

As a blogger, I get asked a lot what my favourite blogs are. There are so many good ones out there, from food to flowers to fashion and interiors. Sadly I don’t actually have the time to browse them all nearly as much as I’d like, but here are a couple of my favourites: Saipua...

TOP 7 INSTAGRAM FEEDS WORTH FOLLOWING

I know people have been instagramming for like ever (I’€™m super slow to the programme) but now I’m on it I a€™m hooked and actually pretty addicted. Correction – seriously addicted! I love the personal side of it, the behind the scenes sneakpeaks of how people run their lives, their businesses,...
