press + new blogs

we've had a couple of nice blog features lately and consequently discovered two lovely new blogs.

cathy is an interiors journalist, stylist and design consultant now based back in her home of Ireland after having various editorial roles for leading magazines in London and South Africa.
cathy's blog celt "explores artisanal life from the celtic regions - Brittany, Cornwall, Ireland, Scotland & Wales"
we discovered celt after cathy featured our oak edge & slate dining table on her post "new folk style"{here}and we are now avid readers.

the design for(u)m blog is run by the members of the development & design team at Kronospan and is where they share the stuff they find & love whilst researching trends and inspiration.
the blog features lots of british design, especially designers using wood.
jess from the team wrote a lovely piece {here} about us this morning featuring some of our favourite pieces from our furniture range .

bel green cafe & shop

we went to the lovely Bel Green cafe & shop in Exeter for breakfast on sunday {yummy toasted granola with yogurt & rhubarb and devilled mushrooms with poached egg on toast}.

the shop & cafe is a new venture between textile designer Teresa Cole & chef Isabel Davies. the cafe serves breakfast, tuscan influenced lunches and pizzas on thursday/friday/saturday evenings, as well as delicious cakes, cheeses & wines.

the shop has a lovely selection of teresa's hand printed textiles {aprons, bags, purses, tea towels}, and also sells antique mirrors, lovely old kitchen ware such as enamel colanders, rolling pins with painted handles and old-fashioned laundry pegs.
