Saturday 10 November 2012
We are nuts about the new 'Squirrel, Acorn and Leaf' pendant (pictured above) from British jeweller Phoebe Sherwood-Moore. Handmade in turned oak, silver and gold vermeil, it is part of a collection inspired by the Sussex countryside near the young designer's home in Lewes. Squirrel some away now. £125, phoebejewellery.co.uk
Just add flowers
These porcelain vases (see gallery) are decorated with hand-drawn motifs, and they come from the Danish design collective Meyer-Lavigne, whose 'Flower Me Happy' range is part of Couverture and the Garbstore's homeware collection. Perfect for cheering up the hall. From £55, couvertureandthegarbstore.com
