THE HOME OFFICE
It turns out we’ve all got one now, whether yours is in a little nook in your bedroom, a shed in the garden (away from the chaos of family life) or you’ve converted the spare bedroom. Arguably there’s nothing more ‘2020’ than working from home. These home offices are dreamy and practical, a perfect sanctuary for focus and concentration.
Now if you’re lucky enough to have a home office in the garden, we think you’ve potentially won 2020! Keeping it simple and minimal but still accessorising allows you to keep your concentration as well as love where you’re working. Shop Similar: 1. Hector Wall Lamp, 2. Arnstein Leaf Cutout Vase
Jaz's Office Nook
For those of us with a small space you have to work with what you've got! This little area has become our much loved office nook. Adding a stunning pendant light perfect for reading, faux greenery and of course a sweet scent - it's all about the senses. The handy Mustard Made locker means we can store files away from the desk area giving us more space to actually graft without cluttered papers. 1. Cornet Lamp Shade Black, 2.

The kitchen has been used more than we ever thought in 2020. When we’re not able to get take away from our favourite locals, our kitchens have seen baking mishaps, new recipes and just about everything in-between. Our kitchen round up includes favourite coffee mugs, recipe books and furniture that we couldn’t have lived without.
We love this bold green. By adding the raised shelving, you can keep your kitchen countertop from clutter, as well as adding accessories like artwork, plants and candles – stop our kitchens being clinical! Shop Similar: 1. Black Organic Tiered Candle Stick

ACCESSORISE, ACCESSORISE, ACCESSORISE
Even the most functional of spaces have seen the love. In a desperate need to feel like we’ve left the house, we’ve been constantly updating corners, shelves and rearranging accessories. The beauty of vessels, house plants and soft furnishings, is that you can move them around the house and this year, out of desperation, it’s felt like visiting somewhere new.
Layering your accessories whether that's in the form of textiles, coffee table books or mantle piece decorations - its been an essential. Shop Similar: 1. Brass Plant Pot with Feet, 2. Velvet Sofa in Caramel Cafe, 3. Recycled Cotton Throw

Although maybe a bit seasonal now, if we look back to the glorious days of the summer weather, our outdoor space has been a god send. Whether you have a balcony, a yard or are one of those lucky people with a HUGE back garden (perfect for hiding in for five minutes to yourself!) I think we have all had a go at making the most of our outdoor spaces. Those dedicated, hardy few have still been making use of those outdoor spaces in the latter months, with bonfires and socially distanced catch ups with friends and family. Here’s some of our top picks that blur the boundaries of indoor and outdoor living.
Bringing indoor elements outdoor might have just been one of our saving graces this year! Adding traditional indoor features like lighting, candles, throws and textiles made our outdoor spaces a true extension of our home. Shop Similar: 1. Mohair Throw in Kahki
