Former interiors stylist Emily Chalmers' shop Caravan in Shoreditch is a great source of all things 'purdy' so if you love a bit of kitsch then it's sure to be right up your street as its got twiddly diddly bits and bobs galore to make a whole Disney scene in the corner of your living room. Take a look on line at the selection of fab collectables or..if you fancy a day out in trendy Shoreditch then go and have a good old rummage in the shop - certainly good for the ahh factor... http://www.caravanstyle.com

www.anthropologie.eu/ (it came over from the states about a year ago - ish..) and i'm always diving in there window shopping for sources of inspiration - window shopping is a bit of a key word here as it's pricy but oh so cool...if you're looking for a great gift or a sneaky treat for yourself it's the place to go..

The name Miss Etoile might have that certain 'je ne sais quoi' but surprisingly this company is from Denmark and i stumbled across their lovely stand at 100% design. Their fab products are devised with the fictitious and obviously extremely glamorous Miss Etoile in mind who lives in her boudoir home in the heart of Paris - and that's why they're soo beautiful... look out for them this Autumn in the Uk - i'll be keeping you posted on where they can be found www.missetoile.dk

"What are words worth" was the sentiment by Wordyrappinghood and the Tom Tom club (ok i'm giving away my age now) but words with a special sentiment are topping the fashion stakes on all things homey... One of my favourites is this brill cushion by my mate Emily Peacock-www.emilypeacock.com she's designed it with Rob Ryan and it combines his trademark style with her intricate tapestry design - Check out Emily's site as tapestry is the perfect pastime for these Autumnal evenings and is a welcome change from Corrie...

I love this time of year - ok it's dark outside already at 6.00pm but what better excuse to curl up on the sofa and watch X Factor and Strictly - OK i know it's not exactly stimulating the brain but who cares -it's Saturday night TV at its best. With all this snuggling up to be done - there's only one way to go and all things knitted are my accessory of choice this season. I absolutely love the new collection from 95% design with Ferm Living's knitted cushions and storage in lush yummy colours (how inspiring are they! )www.95percent.co.uk... take a look at the other fab things in their collection too - cool...

www.janechurchill.com- it's such a pretty shot that i thought i'd share it with you -ok i know i should be thinking about warm schemes for winter - velvets, wool and all those cosy things but it makes a refreshing change to see something so light and airy and from the ornate damasks and dark colours that are around - i'd be happy to bypass Christmas and bring on spring...
