Style lust: Florrie and Bill

If you’re lucky enough to have a retro chair hanging around, then you might want to take some inspiration from Florrie and Bill.

The business has been inspired by Amy Cawson’s Grandparents – named Florence and William – and her memories of their home filled with radiograms and teak furniture. I’m imagining some macrame plant holders too or is that just me?

If you head over to the website, you’ll find G Plan, Ercol and Parker Knoll. There’s a large range of the cutest cocktail chairs as well as some Danish pieces.

 I’ve picked a few of my favorites for you to drool over…

So can you guess my favorite? It has to be the mint  cocktail chair! We are viewing a house tonight (wish us luck!) which has parquet flooring. I can just see this piece sitting pretty on lovely, warm herringbone wood…

Look at how it’s been styled here for the Florrie and Bill Pinterest page. Not sure I could entrust it to my toddler’s room though. There’s no way I’d let him get his little sticky mitts near it! 



My fun and colourful workspace

It’s been difficult to find the time to blog lately. I’ve been mostly squirrelled away here at my desk, caught up with my freelancing work. 

So I thought I’d show you my workspace. 


As you can see, I’ve used some of the free printables I talked about in this post together with Washi tape to add interest to the walls.

Most of the postcards are from Paperchase.

The Washi tape I’ve used is MT Washi. Anything else I have tried just peels off and has been a waste of time.

The lamp was a birthday present from Mr PFW. The beauty of writing a blog, however haphazardly, is that husbands start to really tune in to your tastes!

He also bought me the Hay trays below which I love. You can’t beat a spot of neon.

Cheery, don’t you think?

I’m really drawn to bright, white desks but this wooden one is very homely. 

It was left behind in the first ever home I bought. It was stained dark brown but, with a good sanding, you can now see the grain of the pitch pine. And I think it’s a nice backdrop to the modern and colourful accessories.

 I think it’s a wartime piece so it’s nice and simple. No fuss.


Before going freelance, I really looked forward to having the freedom to create my own workspace and to make it fun, bright and happy.


Let me know what you think!

Have a good week….
