With what looks to be a beautiful weather week ahead of us, we’re planning a productive one in the garden, pottering and planting. Following a lucrative loot of plants at village fairs recently, we have plenty to plant out in preparation for the summer months ahead. We find local stands at fetes and fairs are always a great place to pick up affordable plants, especially as they will generally be full of species grown in local soil making them ideal for your own garden.

If you still have some younger varieties that need a little while longer in the comfort of a pot, then we have just the thing. Our rustic terracotta pots have been aged and mossed to provide an authentic weathered finish, making them the perfect pots for relaxed vintage planting. Designed to look as is if they have been sat happily in your garden for years already, no two will be exactly the same.

You can find out more about our Eden Terracotta Pots here. 

We discovered Swallows & Damsons in the latest issue of Homes & Gardens. Founded by Anna Porter, it’s the perfect mix of a florist teamed with an interior emporium located in Sheffield. What makes Anna’s floral masterpieces particularly special is their unstructured form, mixing blousy blooms with wild foliage, every bouquet, display or bunch is a work of art (so it comes as know surprise that Anna’s background is in fine art). Unlike other florists, Anna likes to embrace these irregular floral forms, whether it’s crazy bends, kinks or droopy flower heads, rather than fighting natural shapes she instead chooses to team them with unexpected wild and scrappy foliage to create perfectly seasonal masterpieces.

You can peruse more beautiful work from Swallows & Damsons here, or if you’re luckily enough to be local, be sure to pop into the store and treat yourself. 

We believe style shouldn’t be a childfree zone, so our Little Rowen & Little Wren collection delivers bite-sized chunks of home style in miniature. Perfect PJs, sweet slippers, beautiful bedding and terrific toys with the focus on the well-made, robust and homely.

There are so many wonderful plants springing up in the garden at this time of year, it seems only right to bring some of the beauty appearing outside inside. Whether it’s a simple posy, a spring terrarium or a collection of seasonal potted plants, adding a touch of flora or foliage to your interior helps celebrate the changing seasons outside. One of our favourite pieces to do exactly this is our Byrne table planter, the ideal natural centrepiece. The timelessness of our planting troughs makes them the perfect candidate for years of use around the house, you can also accessorize them with our delicate Byrne Candle Stakes for dinner parties or wedding celebrations.

You can view all of the pieces within our Byrne collection here. 

As we’ve recently been experiencing the timely arrival of some spring sunshine, Lydia Toll’s Instagram feed (@lydiatoll) has been giving us plenty of inspiration for idyllic getaways this summer. As a photographer, stylist and traveller, whether its Palm Springs, Portugal or Paris you’re longing for, Lydia has the tantalising imagery to persuade you to book your next holiday. The colour palette gracefully transitions as you scroll through her feed, her warmer moroccan terracottas pleasantly compliment the cooler cactus greens. A particularly enticing example of this colour combination is the balcony featured top centre, it looks like a splendid place to sit back with a good book and a refreshing cold beverage.

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.

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.
