If you haven't had a really good delve through the gorgeousness that awaits you in Coconapple, you may not know just how difficult it was to really narrow down my top picks. My intention was to choose just one product per pick, but the stress and indecisiveness had me searching the cupboards for hidden chocolate so I caved, sat back with a glass of wine and chose one range instead.
So my first pick, something to adorn your walls. Now I know that many love a good coastal print to frame on their beautifully painted walls but these are a little different. Part beach shack cool, part ultimate cheekiness they may not be for everyone BUT that's why I love them. The Hard Love Collection, the name says it all. Think reckless summer love in the perfect location. I chose five but there is more to the Collection.
Next up, THE FLUFFLEBUSTER Collection. Now there's a few reasons I couldn't go past these gems when choosing, obviously beautiful, they come in a few different colours and in both cushions and throws. However there is more to these then meet the eye. Read the descriptions people. I absolutely love the geniuses at Amigos De Hoy, the creative team don't just come up with stunning items anyone would feel privileged to have in their home but they also have THE BEST names and descriptions for each item. Colours like Moonlight and Unicorn, just check out this description...
The Flüffelbuster is a mysterious creature. Living high in secluded mountain tops, they feed exclusively on a diet of volcanic glitter ash and purified rock water.
Once a year under full moon, they drop their fur in a process called flüffelisation.
The Flüffelbuster Throw is created from silky soft fluffy faux fur, complete with gold lurex sparkles and giant pom poms. It has a tonal suedette backi
Ok lets head down to the floor. Coconapple is a treasure chest of Rugs in particular, so its was a pretty hard choice but ultimately the new Monreale Range won out. Im a sucker for shag pile, I have a little place in my heart for everything 70's, however Im not a massive fan of anything too plain so old school one shade fits all shaggy's had me slightly frustrated. So my dreams came true when Boho Tribal Shag Pile rugs became an actual thing, originally they seemed out of my reach as the high priced, pale cream wool, beautifully unpractical stunners hit the shops. With six paint and jam covered hands that would 100% destroy, there really was no convincing my better half. Marrying Boho Shag with Polypropylene did the job and now means that anyone can add the mysteries of Morocco to their life. I have to say this Monreale range really is some of the best I've seen. Great designs, size choice and colour range (they have PINK!!!) and just that little extra length on the shag then most it won out.
Staying at floor level, my next pick is back to Amigos De Hoy or rather their sister brand, Art Hide. I do love Boho as a lot of my home reflects but I always find that I can't completely settle unless I have added an edge to the look. Think a little rock, a little glamour, a little Studio 54 maybe.... I like to add a touch of darker shades to add a moody depth to my rooms. As much as I'm drawn to pics of an all white, natural or pastel homes, in my own home it doesn't suit. When I first came across this range of Hides, I think I may have actually drooled. These hides come in a range of colours with Metallic pattern in either Gold, Silver or Copper. I love them all, but the black with gold batik inspired design calls to me in my sleep....Just beautiful!!!
As for the finale, maybe one that you wouldn't expect unless you have seen a sneaky peak in nearly every room in my house where they are lovingly placed... The WoodWick Candle. Now I really couldn't, with good conscious go past these yummy candles, and I mean yummy with scents that range from baked goods to Sorbets, without adding them to my list. With a very busy household, it's easy to get caught up and forget to enjoy life. Feeling very privileged to be able to make a home in an amazing coastal area, I like to have reminders around me. Like most I'm sure, sometimes it can get to 8pm before I have had time to take in my surrounding. My home is quite coastal/beach (with an edge as I've mentioned) it's a little more California dreaming then high stakes Hamptons but coastal non the less, so having my home's scent match that feel is important to me. My absolute favourites of the gorgeous range is Island Coconut and Beach Boardwalk as they suit my home, however there really is one for all tastes, and that Crackle of the Wood Wick just tops off the whole experience.
