Hello Deer

The MIHO Unexpected Things design collection hails from Italy and prides itself on using naturally processed paints and varnishes and recycled MDF.  Beautifully made, this easy to construct range’s major selling point is its glorious colour, guaranteed to make an impact.  Favourites include the deer heads which can be mounted on a wall, and the cute birdhouses which will make a decorative statement in any garden, large or small.

Available from ChiChi Home boutique in St Aubin from £25.



Say it with a coaster

Sometimes it is difficult to find the right words on the spot to convey your true feelings…. so do some prep and have it ready on a coaster. Maybe you could write secret love messages on the backs of them?

They lend themselves very well for when you’re having friends round for drinks or dinner and you can have their names on them. Then simply provide chalk and alcohol and watch the fun unfold. Also there are so many drinking games to be had using them!

Space saver

What do you keep under the stairs? Shoes, tools, toys, recycling boxes, a gimp? However hard we try to keep it tidy, this space often ends up being a graveyard where our things go to die.

The answer is made-to-measure under stairs storage. A practical and tidy way of making the most of this space.
