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.

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.
Today’s newsletter features some of our favourite new arrivals for Spring. Whether it’s bringing a touch of the outdoors indoors to embellish your Easter table, or decorating the garden with our latest homes for the birds and bees. You can peruse all of our new arrivals here.
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.
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.
