Like many people, I don’t get much joy out of trawling the standard high street shop chains for home accessories- after a while everything just begins to look the same, right?! If you’re looking for something more meaningful and special, why not consider investing in some quality antiques?
True vintage pieces can be a great asset to your home. Such items are unique, irreplaceable and can be passed down from generation to generation, increasing in value. Vintage pieces often don’t come cheap and you need to have fairly good knowledge of antiques before investing a considerable amount of money.
We love Pedlars for it’s fabulous range- which is why Pedlars is our Shop of the Week this week! Remember there is no reason why vintage can’t be mixed with modern- choose wisely and consider where the antique will be placed before you commit to buying.

Having an artistic background tends to mean you tend to hoard magazines / articles / supplements… indeed any form of inspiration… over the years. Your collection becomes a library of information precious to you, something you refer back to, from time to time. It wasn’t until I finished my fashion course at University and my parents moved house that I realised just how many issues of Vogue and Drapers I had saved. To my mum they are simply a waste of space just cluttering the house, but to me, the piles of paper offer a never ending mound of inspiration.
Whatever your passion- be it trains, planes or automobiles, you want to keep your collection tidy, safe and easily accessible. Which is why I shall be investing in some large grid shelving (with each cube big enough for at least an A4 magazine). Obvious really, but in all honesty it hadn’t crossed my mind until I saw these images on Apartment Therapy. An absolute must, just perfect!!
