Cole and Son has just launched their new Autumn/Winter 2010 wallpaper collection. The 12 designs in the Frontier collection is inspired by the Far East, and are all sourced from their 300 year old archive. All are available in a selection of colours. My favorites are the Tropical Birds and Cocoa.

Sometimes I get a bit tired at looking at glossy magazines and their impossibly perfect homes, unattainable on most peoples income. Thats when I have a brows through the web pages of Swedish estate agent Bo-lagets. Yes, I know, these homes have been staged for sale, and all the clutter of everyday life has been removed. But they are still real homes, for real people with real life TV's (have you ever seen one of those in interior magazines) and kids toys and mix and match pieces. Some are even tiny studio flats. So much more attainable.

Everything on offer at Damson and Slate is made in Wales, actively encouraging the local traditional crafts. I love the natural materials and the muted pallet. As we get closer to the colder months again, the Scandinavian in me is naturally drawn to things warm and cosy.
