Spring/Summer 2015 preview – part one
It’s one of the most rewarding times of the year for me – the chance to introduce you all to the beautiful new products we’ve chosen for this year’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection! We’ve spent the last few weeks shooting all our new goodies, working again with our very talented stylist and photographer to capture the essence of Nordic House living, and as always, the pictures are absolutely fantastic.
As we have really increased our collection this year, I thought it would be a good idea to split this blog into two parts – first of all, introducing some of the smaller scale accessories, and then, in our next blog, showing you all the larger pieces such as furniture. We’re shooting the furniture next week in a stunning location house on the north Cornish coast and I really can’t wait to get stuck into that shoot – it’s the perfect antithesis to the gloom of this time of year – creating a little spring/summer magic through the art of photography!
So, without further ado, allow me to show off some of the treasures that we found on our last buying trips… beware, you may want to buy them all!
Place a tealight inside our striking silver finish lantern and the graphic vertical struts of metal will cast enticing shadows all around the room. This lantern makes a bold contemporary statement that is Scandinavian through and through.
These stunning pieces will more than earn their place on your dining table, giving you pleasure at every mealtime, day after day. Our Swedish tableware is the perfect marriage of aesthetics and practicality because the plates have an upstanding rim that will prevent any spillage!
Contemporary yet classic, this stylish white porcelain mug with a softly asymmetric square handle, is simply a must-have. Combine it with our tableware above, or simply treat yourself to a mug or two alone – you can never have too many mugs!
There are so many uses for these adorable asymmetric white bowls, from serving nibbles, sweets and snacks to displaying dainty dried herbs or salt.
We are absolutely smitten by this lovely white glazed ceramic bunny cake stand. Perfect for showing off prize bakes, especially for Easter!
And on a similar note – we adore these bunny egg cups, which make a delightful addition to breakfast, lunch or brunch. Mix and match with other items in our collection for a simply gorgeous display.
Topped off with delicate bunny detailing, this white glazed ceramic candleholder reflects the warm glow of the flame to magical effect.
These Danish beauties are the perfect marriage of aesthetics and practicality. Perfect for serving nibbles, olives or sushi to name but a few – you’ll find them endlessly useful!
Contemporary, stylish and utterly covetable. These white bone china tealight holders are decorated with a fretwork style motif – simplicity is key to their appeal.
Last but definitely not least – these gorgeous mini ocean blue and white striped vases are utterly perfect for creating blissfully low-key arrangements.
What do you think? I hope you love all these pieces as much as we do, and that they help you get in the mood for the spring and summer ahead! There are plenty more delights on offer, including a wonderfully diverse range of coloured and textured candles, in the New Arrivals section of the store. And don’t forget to check back in a fortnight to see part two of our new collection unveiled!
