I couldn’t imagine coming back from Shanghai with a better post than this one! I just love this series, so much joy when pictures and texts are popping in my inbox!
For all of you who are reading this series for the first time, it all started in April when I posted a pic of my some of my porcelain mugs on Instagram asking what my followers or other IG users were collecting. Since there were quite some responses, I decided to start this series inviting friends, and I do love the result of getting a sneak peek into my virtual (and real) friend passions and hobbies. Some images are a total surprise others not. All of them are beautiful!
Hi everyone! My name is Michelle Halford and my blog is The Design Chaser. I live in New Zealand and write about great design from here and around the world. I am passionate about interiors, particularly those with Scandinavian style, and I’m slowly building up my collection of Scandi homewares for our newly built home. As you can see I love black and white, brands such as Muuto, Hay and Ikea and graphic prints by the talented Scandinavian illustrators Kristina Krogh, Rikka Kantinkoski and Nynne Rosenvinge.
When I was little I spent a lot of time with my Gran. She used to take me to jumble sales, coffee mornings and charity shops. I loved thrifting from an early age! This collection of vintage crockery was one of my very first. I have been building it up for years, one plate, one teacup, one jug at a time. It’s eclectic, colourful, ever-changing. Pretty patterns, chips and flaws – a link with my British childhood.
I’m Caroline, a residential and editorial interiors stylist with a little visual diary blog called Trend Daily. When Gudy asked me to join in, I realized that I have many, many bits and bobs all over the house, but all completely different and with no particular theme-just a collection of things that I’ve seen and loved. The one true collection in our home is these vintage bottles, which I have to admit, all belong to my husband. He bought them as a job lot many years ago and then never taken them out of the loft! Needless to say, now I have discovered them, they have made many appearances on blog posts and even editorial shoots. Seeing everyone else’s collections has really inspired me to start one of my very own now…!! Thanks Gudy x
