A slow wednesday morning & a walk in the Scottish countryside
These past days have been filled with renovation madness (can’t believe it’s ONLY Wednesday!), and I woke up this morning feeling very tired – like the air had gone right out of me. So I decided to treat myself to a slow morning.
My dear friend Grace, who is the owner of Nåde Store, a beautiful boutique in London, sent me a little care package. Opening up the box I found some Earl of East candles, all designed and hand-poured in London, and a one-of-a-kind Brutes textured stoneware cup. Each piece is inspired by the distinctive Brutalist design movement. These cups are handmade (also in London!) and therefore each has its own uniqueness, making it a one-of-a-kind must-have for your morning coffee.
Not only does the founder of Nåde Store, Grace, offer carefully hand-picked and beautifully curated items for the home, but Nåde Store is also a climate positive business, committed to tackling the climate crisis by supporting reforestation projects around the world. Being a big advocate of buying from interior stores that are climate conscious and share similar values to myself when it comes to sustainability and design, I was super happy when Grace asked me if I also wanted to do a giveaway! If you head over to my Instagram you’ll be able to enter the giveaway and the chance to win one ‘Strand’ Earl of East candle and one Brutes textured stoneware cup.
After my morning coffee and some blissful slow time, I took Alva (our dog) with me for a walk around the countryside, where we met some of the friendliest horses. Loch Long stretches out into the distance and the views are breathtaking.
