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! 

  

Style lust: Cathryn Weatherhead

I recently stumbled across illustrator Cathryn Weatherhead. I bought this lovely little print…

It looks a little grey and grainy here but that’s just my shoddy photography!

Anyway, I decided to take a further look at her work. Cathryn is Cardiff based and, among others things featured on her website and etsy page, has created this gorgeous illustrated world map.

I’ve seen maps like this before but I love the fact that Cathryn has used her native Welsh! I’m a Welsh girl myself but only know a little bit – or should I say ‘tipyn bach’ of the language.

Here are some close ups so you can have a better look:
