French Connection – A fresh look for the home

Have you seen the new range of homeware at French Connection?

I went into their store today and was expecting an extended version of The White Company meets Ikea but I was pleasantly surprised. I am by no means a girl who boasts an immaculate white home full of neutrals and various shades of bright white, infact the opposite, however these quirky little individual objects really appealed to me. Yes all of them were white, and yes as an over all display the area they had ‘dressed’ did look like another minimal homeware range for the carefully restrained individual, an individual who manages to somehow resist all colour to the home, but when you looked closely each piece had character and by no means felt like the product of a high street chain.

Vases covered in what looks like fork marks, unusual glass wears that you would expect to see in an old antique shop and ‘sack print’ inspired cushions. I loved the funny little ceramic tea light holders that look like a crumpled paper bags and wobbly edge fruit bowls, it was all quite delightful and some of the items even inspired me to get creative with some white paint. Who would have thought just painting an everyday object like a canvas bag, with a coat of emulsion paint, could make it so modern and desirable…may try this at home…

I picked some of my favourite ceramics to share with you below…Let me know what you think…
