    It’s Fired Earth’s 30th birthday –  hurrah! To celebrate they have delved into their archive for inspiration and come up with a capsule paint range of six, super-statement dazzling shades. Mad King George, Jazz Cafe and Eton Mess are some of their superb and quirky names. I love this blush pink shade called Hansel and Gretel…

    For the third year running, the fruit trend is still all over the high street and I rather like this print from (yes, I know…Swedish again) Hus & Hem. At £19.95 he’s a cute little pear (definitely a ‘he’, I reckon) inspired by old folkloric patterns. Whack it in a vintage frame or hang from a bulldog clip and a pick a favourite spot for this fruity find.
