An Easter in the Cotswolds & Market Picks

Photography by Will Taylor | Market Picks: Honey Dipper | Spoon | Coasters | Bench | Wooden Bread Boards 1, 2, 3 | Candle
Hello there! How are you all? Whether you celebrated Easter or not, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I took a few days off to visit my family in the Cotswolds and it was total bliss! We took a long walk across seemingly endless fields, through damp woods and up steep hillside paths before enjoying lunch in a country pub, complete with a roaring fire. It felt great to spend a few days out of the city to recharge the batteries. Going home always reminds me how much joy I get from country pursuits: long walks, helping to look after the chickens and baking with my mum in the kitchen. These past few days left me inspired to find some organic, wooden home accessories, so I pulled together a handful of pieces from three top notch stores. I love those wooden dipped bread boards because they are the perfect marriage of organic material and colourful accents. What's been inspiring you lately, friends?

  7. Those pictures look too good to be true! I visited my mama's house in the Virginia countryside today and was so happy just to see endless green grass and fields with cows in them... I think we need those escapes from time to time, don't you?

  27. You, see, I'm from Brasil, so Cotswolds sounds like a dream with its beautiful cottages and endless fields.
    I must say you're such a lucky guy, but I guess you already know that.
