i’m really looking forward to going to ‘home is in the north’ event in manchester!
the pop up event will take place on Saturday 26th April at hallé St. Peters, from 11am – 4pm.
it will be an amazing chance to see a whole collective of independent interior designers showcasing their beautiful work, including industrial upcycled lighting by greymoose designs, geometric pattern work by charlotte nash and playful ceramics by beth johnson to name a few; there will be something for everybody.
the day will also host a handful of interactive workshops and demos including a ‘create your own art’ workshop with interior blogger Kimberly Hughes of Swoonworthy (my favourite!)
you can purchase tickets for the event in advance at eventbrite for only £3.
for more information, please visit the social butterfly.

i have had the greatest pleasure visiting stockholm as a 22nd birthday gift with my boyfriend last weekend. what a beautiful, beautiful city! we stayed in stockholm city, and walked between the norrmalm, gamla stan & södermalm. the views are incredible; we barely touched the city, there was so much more to see and so but we just didn’t have the time – i hope to make it back next year and stay for a week or two!
we visited many design/interior shops: granit, happy sthlm, iitala, design torget, iris hantverk & marimekko. a few fashion shops: acne studios, & other stories, COS. contemporary photography museum: fotografiska. handmade caramels shop: parlans. scrummy bakery: sattva bakery. hidden gem: under kastanjen & so many more i can’t remember!
the two outfits above have to be my best two from the whole weekend. of course the street style over there is absolutely exceptional, so packing for this trip had me worrying so much! i decided the effortless and minimal approach was perfect and practical for the cold (but sunny) weather!
i tend to prefer simple furniture; i find it’s easier to style with interesting objects and pattern, than to be stuck with a piece that you’re sick of the sight. these side tables are perfect for switching and swapping between rooms – a must have for people with constant need of interior rotation like me!
