somewhere over the rainbow

Concrete and rainbow colours aren’t two things you’d usually think to combine. But that’s exactly what Studio Emma did, and the results are spectacular. Its range of bold vessels, homewares and art objects are all made from concrete and experiment with free-form patterns and unique textures. The Circle Clock, £50, painted in a beautiful blend of pink, orange and yellow, will brighten up a dull office wall, while the sage and lilac square planter, £40, would make a wonderful marbled home for a small houseplant or stationery. Move over ceramic, concrete is our new go-to for all-things homeware. Available to buy from Curious Makers, curiousmakers.co.uk.

Set the benchmark high I wanted to share photos of the little haven I’ve just created in my garden. In the morning when the Sun is shining, I sit here peacefully with a coffee – always a great way to start the day! I spotted this pretty bench in a local store, reduced from £200 to £100 (I did try to knock them down again, but had no luck). It was a little rusty, so I set about upcycling it and I’m so happy with the results. Helen Barker, by email Your Home says Helen, your garden seating area is idyllic. The bench is as good as new and the perfect place to relax with a cuppa! Prize drawer These drawers belonged to my Nan who was downsizing. They were on their way to the…

wonderful wreath

As a front-line nurse, the last few months have been very unsettling. But when I get some downtime, it’s lovely to sit quietly and indulge in Your Home magazine. I’ve been keeping my children as busy and crafty as possible in between going to work and school. Recently, after raiding our craft box, I made a gorgeous summer wreath out of some old moss and faux flowers. We’ve hung it up on the front door for all to see – it makes me smile every time I see it. Hannah Schofield, by email Your Home says Your summer wreath looks so beautiful, Hannah. Such a vibrant way to jazz up your door while keeping the children entertained!…
