So we are off to our first festival and we are, of course, taking our Nuvets with us. My fave band Leftfield are playing and Nic's fave Holly Johnson is there too so should be in for a fun weekend. Even if it rains, our nights will be cosy!
Yesterday, the lovely and very talented Karah came to Old Barn to do a photo shoot of our Italian range. We have 9 colours, with white bound edge, all made in the same gorgeous Egyptian cotton, stonewashed for a vintage look, and peachy soft finish. And using the same technical filling, Climashield, as we use in our British range. All colours in stock. £120 each.
Here in nuvetworld, we have been looking at ways of personalising your nuvets. Wouldn't it be great to be able to give a nuvet as a gift, to a toddler going in to his/her Big Bed or to a grandchild going off to Uni... and saving them the job of learning how to put on a cover! We may use appliqué methods or we may embroider...let's see how testing goes. But it will happen. It will also solve the problem of stealing - hands off, its mine, it says so!
I find myself constantly inspired by colours and colour combinations. It is no accident that we can see a pattern in the choices we make and I today realised as I left the gym that my new trainers and water bottle do, in fact, match my new range of British Nuvets! So, if you are doing your interior, be confident in the choices you make as your instinct will lead you the right way. You are your own perfect Interior Designer, if you let yourself be... #thenuvet #sigg #champneys
Oh I've become a bit of a fuss pot since creating my own bedding! I now want to take it with me when I travel so I don't have to endure other people's gunk. So, on Friday, I received 4 new samples to be put to the test. These have been made using a different filling, one that I'm hoping will become our travel range... packs up tightly to go in a suitcase. First test, Brighton at the weekend, on Ginny's Hen Do. And this afternoon, a bit of garden rest time. As you can see, Osc
