Winter Walks

A winter walk at this time of year can be just the thing to invigorate you after a few months hibernating. On a crisp, bright day in the UK, there is nothing quite like the feeling of being bundled up warm while enjoying the beautiful natural landscape. If you’re not sure where to go for a walk, we’ve put together a few options ranging from a short stroll to a more challenging walk in the countryside to suit a range of walkers. Richmond Park, Richmond If you are after a short walk without having to leave London, then Richmond Park is the perfect place for a relaxing walk with lots to see and land to roam. There are many routes to walk, taking in the vast oak and chestnut trees along the way and you will be sure to catch a glimpse of parakeet birds whizzing through the air in a flash of green.

Caring for cashmere and wool

Caring for cashmere and wool

It’s that time of year again when the days grow shorter and the nights cooler. We start thinking about pulling out the woolies from storage and giving them a clean before wearing them. If you’ve ever wondered how to care for cashmere and wool fibres, we’ve gathered some information to give you some of our best tips to make cleaning your woolies easy and simple! One of the most important things to remember is that cashmere and wool are natural hair fibres. This is often what makes them so luxurious and enjoyable to wear, but conversely as with any natural fibre, they are more susceptible to the elements and a little extra attention is needed in their care. Cashmere particularly, is delicate and many people simply dry clean these items. However, our cashmere and wool can be handwashed gently using a dedicated wool and cashmere wash such as this one from the Laundress. If you don’t want to purchase a special product, a normal hair conditioner that you would find in any chemist can also be used. Immerse your cashmere or wool in lukewarm water with a small splash of the wool wash or conditioner, squeezing gently to saturate the material. Avoid rubbing abrasively or wringing ...

Your Fashion & Interiors Style

Your Fashion & Interiors Style

There is so much inspiration to be found for home decoration when browsing online.  The problem is, how do you decide what style to go with for your home?  To make the process of beautifying home interiors in a style reflective of who we are and what we want to express, we’ve turned to fashion. Style is such a personal thing. It doesn’t always follow trends (although it can definitely be influenced by it) and it doesn’t always make sense to others. There are many parallels between how one’s sense of fashion can inform choices for interior design. Both are hugely influenced by what you are drawn to in daily life and both take on board the function, mood, colour and a balance of proportion and details. So whether you’re a home decor veteran or someone just starting on an exploration of taste and style, here are our 3 tips on how to draw from your fashion style to truly express yourself at home.   1. Think about your lifestyle and personality Do you prefer to be dressed in a comfortable and relaxed way or do you usually prefer to dress up and be more pulled together? Are you an extrovert – happy to be the ...

Tips for Minimalist Packing

Tips for Minimalist Packing

So you’re off on a summer holiday and trying to decide whether a hand-carry suitcase will be sufficient or should you pay for extra luggage. We know its hard to figure out how to pack light. Here are our tips for a minimalist packing style to travel with no fuss ever again! 1. Versatility is key Our number one tip for travelling is to choose clothing that can be mixed and matched easily. Neutral colours tend to be best for this category, for example a white linen tshirt like this one can be worn with just about everything. You can choose dresses that are casual enough to wear during the day  but can also easily be worn at night with heels and accessories. A sarong is another example of a versatile item that can double as a scarf/ a blanket and even an outfit if its large enough! By choosing clothing by their versatility, you can significantly reduce the number of items you take with you. 2. Planning is your friend Prepare for your trip by taking some time to think about your holiday. How many days will you be going for? What kind of activities will you be doing? What is the ...
