Ethically sourced Welsh deer hides

We’re thrilled to see our deer hides have received a bit of press recently in the latest issue of Pretty Nostalgic magazine. We’re very proud that we are able to ethically and sustainably source these gorgeous rugs from our local venison centre based here in the Brecon Beacons. These types of deer hides are very popular at the moment and really help create the rustic/Nordic style many interior enthusiasts are after. We’re able to offer these rugs, which we hand pick ourselves, for only £99.99 with full traceability.

A great source of inspiration….

There is something exciting happening which I want to share with you, because I’m smitten - e-magazines. Now I’m definitely prone to buying a magazine or two per month and lose myself in the homes of others, I love nothing more than grabbing a cuppa and chilling out with a glossy magazine, but the emergence of a different type of publication has got my attention. 

Beautifully designed and full of inspiring designs and interiors, I just have to let you know about my two online favourites - 91 Magazine and Heart Home Magazine. Both are available to read at issuu.com and are packed with sumptuous interiors, idyll homes, plus fantastic decorating ideas. The contributors range from interior stylists to bloggers and journalists, all sharing their passion and exquisite style. 

I urge you to take a few minutes of your day to escape and indulge in the delights of these online magazines.
