‘This is a corner of home, featuring a few of my favourite handmade objects. These pieces on my living room mantlepiece bring me great joy every time I look at them. saniapell.com
‘Nature, be it sunshine or blooms, have kept me positive during this lockdown period. It’s also a good reminder that this time will pass!’ oliviagregory.com
‘When we renovated our home I knew I wanted a bespoke shelf in the kitchen specifically for little still life arrangements that could be switched up depending on my mood and what I’d collected. I’m very fortunate to get to travel to some amazing countries for my work and I always make time to search out new homeware shops and designers as part of my downtime. This is a small curation of objects and ceramics I’ve picked up over the years.’ Hannahbort.com
‘I am in the middle of a huge home renovation so all my treasured pieces have been packed away for almost two years now. I got these out to create a lovely image and actually feel like keeping them out now just to remind me just how great it will be once we have finished and I can properly style the house rather than living in piles of dust and out of boxes.’ laurafulmine.com
‘Moving things around my tiny east London flat, switching up the candles, plants and cushions has really kept me sane during lockdown. It’s important to find inspiration wherever we can at the moment and I feel most relaxed surrounded by the things I love, candles lit and the lighting levels low – it gets me ready to take on a new day.’sition. During lock-down, I'm particularly enjoying tending to my garden and nurturing house plants.’ finolainger.com
‘I’ve been plotting to redecorate my home forever, so with more time than I would like within these four walls, I’m taking the plunge and doing it myself. This is the palette that I’m sampling for my studio space, calm and like all of my work, inspired by the textures and colours found in nature.’ alexkristal.com
‘I’m a bit of a magpie, a keen collector of objects and props so I do tend to have vignettes of objects dotted around, on any spare surface in my home, which I share with my husband and son. However, I’m keen that our home is a calm environment, which means I want to avoid too much clutter. So do an edit and have a clear out every year or so. I love objects that tell a story or hold a particular memory, having that human element is very important to me. I have a passion for ceramics and porcelain. When grouping objects, I particularly enjoy mixing textures, silhouettes and patterns. For me what makes a vignette interesting is all about the way objects are mixed together; the juxtaposition. During lock-down, I'm particularly enjoying tending to my garden and nurturing house plants.’ finolainger.com
‘Lots of the pieces I have featured are artwork I've created, collections I’ve gathered over the years whilst propping and personal treasures, and anything that my magpie tendencies are drawn to. I love including natural elements to ground my space, using plants, and cuttings from the garden. The coffee table in the living room is a constantly evolving canvas where I play with objects that have meaning for me and lift my mood, especially pertinent during lockdown at home.’ hannahsimmons.com
‘We are up in Scotland and have been so for six weeks. The house that my sister Lucy Bathurst (Nest Design) and I inherited from our mum is full of old treasures, books, quilts, pictures etc. Not much dates from this century in fact, however as Lucy is a extremely gifted curtain maker and whiz with vintage fabrics she has added some wonderful textiles, curtains and colour to the old place. The shots are all in her room with stuff found around the house. ’ florabathurst.com
‘Here is a snap of my working from home space in my dining room. I move around the house, but the dining room has the best light in the late afternoons. Kitten Grayson flowers on the table brighten my day. As shoots are on hold, I’m offering zoom consultations. I have three clients who are totally renovating their homes and need advice on colour, textiles and hardware. It’s working really well !’ @deechops
