Moody florals are so hot right now and we are absolutely loving it. We’ve seen a shift from the 70’s tropical theme last summer to deeper, more colourful hues reminiscent of mum’s old cane and black floral two-seater from the 90’s. And yeah, florals come around every spring, but this season's look is more brooding and sophisticated - moving away from paisley prints and happy daisies.
IXXI’s Still Life With Flowers has taken over the Banana Leaf as top seller and it’s easy to see why. For those not wanting to go large scale, the A4 and A3 Fleur prints from Crushes are a more subtle way to dip your toes in the floral waters. We’ve chosen IXXI’s 100x140cm Peony Roses and flipped it sideways for our window display refresh this week.

Our favourite mauve accessories like the new faux peonies and the Madam Stoltz Dust Rose Knitted Throw bring out the lilac tones in the print and look stunning against the darker greys and blacks.
Not ones to let our furry friends miss out on the latest trends, we chose the Hello Pets Good Night felt bed, Up Dog Odin treat toys in Rose Quartz and Slate Grey, and the Fringe Studio Ceramic Meow bowls in Blush and Grey to tie in with our mauve and grey theme. You can shop the products in our window display here.
And in our never ending quest to find toys for your pets that aren’t completely hideous, we’ve found a couple of neutral wooden cat wands that we’re quite fond of. With the majority of cat wands on the market featuring some unholy combination of bold colours and rainbow feathers, these natural-look wands are a breath of fresh air.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. Your pets don’t care what their toys look like - we’re the ones who have to stare at them. Why settle for ugly?
Rounding off our new arrivals this week are the ridiculously cute porcelain LED night lights from Amalfi Homewares. Moby the whale and Elle the elephant are welcome new additions alongside the ever popular Fenton Fox and Loppy the rabbit. These cuties make excellent gifts regardless of age or gender that don’t break the bank (and it’s about that time to start thinking about Christmas gifts)!
