Let’s wrap things up today with my final 4 picks…
1. Avril Loreti
Avril’s work is clearly an expression of her own personality… Bright, energetic and fun. Her booth was definitely hard to miss. It was positively bursting with colour and pattern. I was drawn in by her geometric pillows & held captive by her playful tea towels. Don’t be surprised to see us collaborate in the future.
Spring is one of my favourite times of year and I’m always grateful for the burst of colour that comes with the season. I take delight in watching the sky brighten, the grasses green and the flowers bud. All of these hint at the beauty that will take shape later in the season.
If you’re looking to give your backyard a similar lift, take cue from nature and inject colour with chic and cheerful side tables. Strong enough to resist the weather elements and small enough to move around on a whim, these little tables pack springtime punch that’s sure to satisfy your colour cravings.
Win a copy of The World of Downton Abbey and go behind the scenes of the show to discover the secrets and history of the family, society at the time and, of course, that spectacular house. Read on to find out how you can enter.
Did you know that although breakfast is widely regarded as the most important meal of the day, it is also the most skipped? This little fact always strikes me as something of a culinary tragedy because what could be more glorious than spicy eggs and crispy toast, refreshing smoothies or the wafting aroma of a fresh banana bread sandwich?
To help shake off our bad habits and start our days on a more nutritious note, the Style at Home team has rounded up some beautiful breakfast Pinterest boards as a pretty reminder that eating first thing in the morning is deliciously necessary!

The One of a Kind Spring Show & Sale wrapped up last weekend and I have to say that this year’s event was a completely new experience for me. Not only was I participating in the show as media, but also as an exhibitor.
While my own booth kept me pretty busy, I did have a chance to walk around and chat with many of the other exhibitors.
I’ll be sharing my top 8 fave discoveries from the show, over two posts.
Let’s kick things off today with my first 4 picks…
Evann Frisque is a textile artist, who hand felts, draws, and silk-screens her own unique brand of original art. She adds unexpected details to each piece in the form of neon stitching, buttons, found materials, and even electrical components.
Shown here are her one of a kind journal covers that deliver a lot more personality than the average variety.
I had the pleasure of being placed next to Evann’s booth in the Rising Stars section. We had a lot of time to talk and get to know more about each other’s methods. Don’t be surprised to see us collaborate in the future.
A few days ago, I attended the preview for Andrew Richard Designs 2012 outdoor furnishing collection. The colours were vivid and bright, and the furniture cosy and inviting. I left the event wanting the warmer months to quickly settle in.
