You might have seen over on our Instagram that we’re loving using our Hearts & Kisses kitchen and dining room set this summer. A bright floral, it feels fresh on the table and the colours really seem to lift the room, especially when our plates are filled with vivid green salads (and the odd pot of guacamole or two!) There’s nothing we love more than changing up our interior decorating, from changing the seat cushions to re covering our existing furniture to create ‘new’ pieces and our curtains. But, there’s sometimes no need to swap out everything in the room; sometimes, all it takes is a simple change of dining room accessories – the tablecloth and napkins can be a simple way to change it all up and give new life to a room as the seasons change.
Of course, we’re still obsessed with our William Morris fabrics and kitchen/ dining room accessories, but our French floral designs from our late 1800 – early 1900 French archive also remain firm favourites. Exclusive designs to Laura’s Beau, you won’t see these designs anywhere else and they come from an original archive that we work with a skilled textile designer to restore to their former glory and these timelessly classic designs look as beautiful today as they did back in the early 1900s.
It was after a trip to Paris that we sat down for a new design meeting and decided we wanted to base a design on the French capital after being inspired by French minimalism and easy beauty and so out came the archive! Hearts & Kisses caught our attention immediately and we could see many elements within the design that we loved; the trellis design was reminiscent of the famous wrought iron of the Eiffel Tower and the hearts, of course because Paris is the city of love. The little ‘kisses’ within the design made the name an easy one for us to agree on and we all felt that everyone can always do with a little love in their lives – after all, the tablecloth sits upon the table that we all sit around as families and friends at the end or the beginning of the day to all bond and discuss our days – of course you need a beautiful setting for that whether that’s a kitchen or a dining room.
With such a pretty design, we couldn’t resist turning it into quite a few products – as with all our other products, the Hearts & Kisses range is printed and manufactured right here at home in the United Kingdom. So, we produced a 1950 style apron – because the sweetheart neckline and full skirt will never go out of fashion and forever be a cute and fun style. We also have an iPad mini/ Kindle case so all of your technology can be kept secure and safe with an inner padding in the case – and an external pocket so you can keep bits and bobs in here when you’re travelling – really handy for keeping your boarding pass and tickets in here! We also have a range of three sizes of tablecloths and, of course the matching napkins. We never think the table setting is complete without a matching napkin!
