Wishing you all a very Happy Easter from all of us at Rowen & Wren. 

Enjoy a long weekend filled with family, friends and as much chocolate as you could possibly hope for! x

As Easter approaches it’s time to bring the first signs of spring indoors to prepare the home for any seasonal entertaining you have planned. 

Lay your Easter table with natural hints at the joy outdoors. Tactile Selvedge edge linen tablecloths sit perfectly beneath our Kestle Zinc plates for understated drama. Create simple settings with handfuls of pretty, speckled eggs in our Nilly Sweet baskets and handmade willow nests dotted with delightful seasonal treats.

You can peruse our Easter tableware collection here.

The clocks have changed, the evenings are longer and lighter and we’re enjoying a glimpse of the Summer ahead. This naturally leads us to crave a whole new Spring wardrobe for the hopeful warmer weather to come, so we’ve put together a little collection of four looks we’re coveting this season. We have been enjoying the use of dusky pinks and nudes in the home for some time now, this is also the case in fashion on clothes, accessories and especially footwear. Whether it’s heeled mules teamed with an embroidered dress, or some relaxed sandals with a touch of denim and a broiderie anglaise shirt, you’ll find plenty of uses for some nude, suede shoes this season.

Our Mother’s Day message to you all…(…and as always, a very special note to our wonderful R&W Mums, we couldn’t do it without you! x)

At Rowen & Wren we relish having lots of image sources that allow us to observe trends to feed into our design process. Magazines, blogs and most of all Pinterest, all regularly cause our designers severe cases of interior envy. Pinterest is one of our favourites to both collect inspiration and to give us direction for our upcoming collections, it has also been an essential means to share our photography and products with our treasured customers and beyond! We’re currently coveting our Artisan board which inspired our latest collection, you can peruse this and our full collection of pin boards here.

We’re quite sure many of you will remember Flora Shedden (@sheddenflora) from a favourite programme of ours, The Great British Bake Off. At twenty years old, she was the youngest ever semi-finalist the show has ever seen and a personal favourite of ours. Many of the recipes on her blog (particularly her recipe for pancakes with whipped maple butter!) have left us weak at the knees and gazing at Flora’s food photography in sheer adoration. We love how her personality, passion for baking and skill for writing are all perfectly combined on her blog making it the perfect read for a Sunday afternoon. This wonderfull combination of talents has been translated to her new debut book, titled ‘Gatherings’, an easy way of cooking and hosting without the pressure, just simple, tasty recipes. Head over to Flora’s instagram feed to follow the progress of her new bakery in Dunkeld, Scotland opening this Spring.

We’re delighted to launch our long awaited Artisan collection with you all.

A variety of skilled craftsmen and women have created a handmade collection of tactile linens, nature inspired stoneware and traditional sisal rugs.

Although February brings with it a lot of anticipation for Spring, the pieces we’re currently coveting show that we’re still very much in Winter mode. With the mornings still dark and the nights still chilly, we’re still layering soft knits under our Winter coat and gravitating towards minimalist and monochrome pieces. The palette is very much like our February skies, heavy whites, hints of blue and still a large dose of grey, the perfect palette for both fashion and interiors when warmed with wood tones and caramel neutrals. One of our favourite makers currently are Knotworkla ceramics (featured top centre). These beautiful porcelain tumblers are glazed with white, peachy pink, pale grey and dark speckles on a toasty stoneware body, a must have for our cottage kitchen.

Wishing you all a very, very Happy Valentines Day. We hope it’s filled with family, friends and a whole lot of love!

As our garden is currently on quite a steep slope, it requires tiering before we begin any major planting. Each tier will have a different use, from a vegetable and herb patch through to a seating and barbecue area and each tier will feature a slightly different planting scheme depending on its shading. To add structure to each tier our planting plan includes a variety of ornamental grasses, not only do these add height and form in the winter months but they’re also a calming accompaniment to more colourful flowering plants. We particularly love the texture that grasses add to a garden, whether it’s the use of shorter species for edging and lower beds or taller grasses to create dynamic screens and divides, they require very little maintenance and are generally hardy so they’re perfect for gardening novices like us. You can learn a little more about the vast array of grasses recommended by the RHS here.

Today’s newsletter introduces us to a touch of (well needed!) Spring. One of our favourite ways to introduce botanical freshness into your home this Spring is with our Bevin Glass Domes, their contemporary finishes and clean lines are perfect for showing off your favourite collectables or your treasured houseplants. You can find these alongside our latest arrivals here.
