Her designs are inspired by her passion for the British countryside. With woollen blankets, soy candles and country-inspired homewares that evoke that same sense of freshness and cosiness as settling in by the log burner after a breath of crisp autumn air.
Her gorgeous designs include dog prints, striped duckegg, daisies and bees and striped blue. She also sells a range of blankets, cosmetics bags, cushions and gifts.
