Ideal Home September 2016 Favourite Finds

My first copy of an Ideal Home magazine was given to me by my husband. Within a couple days of meeting him, he know that I was very interested in interior design so he started importing copies of Ideal Home from England to me in the States. Over the years, I have shipped my collection of Ideal Home magazines across the world a couple times to make sure I had pile of magazines to review for inspiration.
Starting this September, I thought I would share with my readers a few of my favourite items for each month's edition.

Items for the Home

1. "Tell A Beautiful Story" - Grey Star Standing Plaque £3.99 from Dunelm - page 13

2. Weekday Blackboard £88 from Design Vintage - page 40

3. Artistan Eau De Nil tiles £95 per sq.m. from Laura Ashley - page 86-87

4. Alaska Laundry Basket £45 from YONDER.living - page 42

New Discovery

I loved the idea of "magnetic wallpaper" for a children's room. Featured on page 60 is Woodland Wallpaper by Sian Zeng sold from Nubie. According to article, you first hang a magnetic liner and then paste on the decorative sheet. The Woodland Wallpaper by Sian Zeng paper has adorable matching animal magnets that included flying pigs, hedgehog, frog and Llama. The Dino Wallpaper by Sian Zeng also has available Dinosaur magnets. The cost is £248 for a 10-meter roll but I think this would be perfect as feature wall in playroom or corner of a family room.

Featured Article

This month the "High-Street Hero" (page 27) is Nicky Sloan from Magpie. I am always fascinated to find out more about the creative and business journey that individuals take to create new businesses featuring homewares.
"Magpie produces colourful, vintage-inspired tableware, tableware, gifts and accessories with a distinctly British feel" - Ideal Home, September 2016

There is several collections that I would love in my home but one of my favourite is the "Retreat" collection with Hedgehog Doormat, Retreat Tote Bag and Retreat Shower Curtain that has an illustration of a cabin in the woods surrounded by trees.

The "Biciletta" collection makes me want to go for scenic bike ride in the country side. Collection with truly charming illustrations. My favourite items are the Sasha Apron with each bike carry different items, the Small Cosmetic Bag with the puppy peaking out of the basket on the front and the Porcelain Tray with the bouquet of flowers.

Love these mid-century style illustrations of chickens, cows, pigs and sheep. These items in pastel colours would bring some farmhouse magic to any kitchen. 

I admire that fact Nicky designs and produces homeware products that are vegan-friendly and cruelty free to animals.
