You know when you happen across a website, start browsing, and half an hour later you’re still there, hooked, clicking through categories and making mental lists of things you’d like? Curious Egg is one of those sites as this online store is literally filled with unique objects from accessories, textiles and lighting to (incredible!) wallpapers and artworks.

Curious Egg was launched in 2015 by artist Lorraine Aaron and her husband Roddy, who live in Perth in Scotland – I have to admit this Scottish connection also caught my eye. Lorraine has worked as a sculptor, painter, public artist and gallery artist, and has also taught contemporary arts practice and run a successful art consultancy business.

I feel that I should start this post with a confession: I’ve been a big fan of Bold & Noble’s prints since the first time I spotted one a few years ago during an interiors shoot. A few clicks on the website later and Trees Around Britain was winging its way to my home. That was the beginning, and now, as I write this sitting at my desk, the British Isles Type Map is propped on the shelving unit opposite – at eye level so I can look up and have something engaging to gaze at while searching for the right words. The sharply graphic Stronger print is similarly propped on the mantelpiece in my office – in the Monochrome colourway, although I love the Canary Yellow too. These are pieces that I simply never tire of looking at. Continue Reading…

Simon and Clare Platt may not have been looking for a new build house when they started their search for a holiday home, but when they came to view this property in Fife’s East Neuk the location instantly won them over. The house sits within the grounds of the grand Elie House – a classic Palladian Grade A listed mansion that was converted into 13 apartments by The Chris Stewart Group. Continue Reading…
