Hello all, I am writing from Gran Canaria, from a very quiet, sunny and warm town. I arrived on Friday with a terrible cold and very tired, and it is being a blessing to be able to spend sometime over here at Gassy’s house, eating his mother’s cooking, walking on the beach with my mum and eating an ice-cream with my man while watching the sunset. It is from here that we are working on new products, trying to organise a bigger and better studio and keep working as usual.

I have been working for sometime on the English Romantic collection, the hooks and knobs were launched last June at Pulse, and finally I can include the cushions. It has taken me time to find a good supplier of digital printing on natural linens in London, very expensive but gorgeous results. I have produced four different designs inspired by the many old paintings, and vintage images that I keep finding in my trips to the car-boot sales, antiques fairs and shops, (I miss this when in Gran Canaria). I love the English countryside, the woodlands, lakes, cottages, etc…I think Great Britain is one of the most charming countries that there is. Piero and I worked together in the photo shoot for this latest products, I love working with him, we understand each other well as we have been friends for over 10 years, gosh time fly…

The NEW Tea light holders would be available soon, we are making them in black, copper, blue, yellow and grey. I hope you like the new products, I will keep adding more things as we go.  Off to go for a well deserved walk and coffee with my man who is working at his messy studio, Gassy is the messiest person I have ever met…I guess you can’t have it all haha…

  3. I just saw these pillows on Design*Sponge, I LOVE them. They almost take my breath away. I love the hooks and knobs also – especially the "cross-stitched" ones!
