It’s been a tough start to the year  so I have been working on focusing positive energy into making my home a calming and more beautiful space for myself and the kids. So far it is going well, small changes have made a big difference and affordable ebay finds have been a godsend. There will be much more home inspired and design features on the blog to reflect the need for home creature comforts.In the meantime check out my Pinterest board project home to see where I am fined my inspiration. Its perfect timing to talk about the Iittala X Issey Miyake home collection which aims to bring harmony to everyday life. The home collection which consists of textiles, ceramics and glass invites you to celebrate the rituals of domestic life by setting a gentle mood with its colours and delicate shape.

The collection has been designed in close collaboration between the Iittala concept and design team and the Miyake Design Studio.  Iittala and Issey Miyake are ideal partners as both brands share similar values and design philosophies. Iittala is a master of timeless design icons, whereas Issey Miyake is a global brand renowned for innovative clothes that go beyond fashion and trends.
