For those of you who follow my Instagram you will know that today our family is off on our big Brooklyn summer holiday! However burglars beware – we are taking part in a house swap, so the lucky swapper will be staying at our home in East London whilst we are away.

Because I’ll be blogging intermittently during this period, I felt like doing something a little different today with a round-up of things I have been watching, reading, thinking about and admiring this month – a newsletter of sorts.

Heather Taylor Home, Striped Napkins

My favourite Californian textile brand Heather Taylor Home has just launched some new Green Striped ‘Hunter Napkins’. I love the thickness of the stripes, texture of the weave and the use of green, which I think we need to see more of in interiors!
