I did a shoot and interview with Laura Binns, owner of online interiors boutique Roost Living, at her stunning Dartmouth Park house early last year.
Her family home acts as the perfect canvas for her style finds, ergo stock and I found myself drifting off to covert every cushion, lamp and curio she had artfully filled each room with. With an immaculate eye, Laura hand-picks items that are all British-made, by small artisans and a few that are exclusive to Roost Living.
I really admire her ethos of championing things that are ‘made well and to last’. Like this ‘Rule the Roost’ lamp:
Designed by Rory Dobner they’re simple, with a streak of genius. Made from old wooden rulers Rory has picked up on his travels around the globe, I’d love this piece for my study.
As someone with a shelf-straining collection of ceramics, particularly of the turquoise hue, these wobbly bowls stole my heart. I love the organic, hand-thrown shapes.
Finally, I think this sugar bowl is a delight. Mainly as it tugs at the nostalgic heart strings as my grandma collects the little Wade figures that atop these handmade earthenware bowls by Fliff. I love the crackled gold lustre, too. Glamour at breakfast time is no bad thing I say.
