Apple shaped memo board

Memo boards are great for keeping shopping lists handy, for storing notes to remind you to do things and to use as a place to keep all those receipts you need to keep, but are afraid you might otherwise lose.

This cheery red memo board has been crafted in the shape of a red apple, with a stalk and small green leaf to boot. It’s the type of memo board where you don’t even have to bother about pins – you just pop your important notes underneath the elastic and it will hold them in place.

The apple memo board has been nicely made, with a padded finish, and has a handle in place so it can be easily hung on a wall. Perfect for keeping in the kitchen, hallway or your office, the apple memo board is sold by Beautiful Things and costs £12.

Contemporary Gumball coat stand

Funky coat stand

Funky coat stand

For a modern take on the traditional wooden coat stand, why not try this gumball coatstand from Oliver Bonas?

The stylish, slim white stand won’t take up heaps of room, but is equipped with enough hooks to hang a selection of coats, hats and other accoutrements on. The style and design of the hooks have a sense of fun and the tips of the hooks are finished off with different coloured balls – hence the name ‘gumball coat stand.’

The coatstand measures 170cm tall and would like right at home in your hall, bedroom or office. It’s £45 from Oliver Bonas.

Inke vintage wallpaper birds

Wallpaper birds

Wallpaper birds

If your walls are plain, but you like the idea of introducing a small amount of colour and love vintage wallpaper designs, then how about using these wallpaper birds?

They were originally created by designer Inke Heiland for her son, but were subsequently introduced to the public at an exhibition in Amsterdam in 2004. The birds proved very popular (and not just for children) and have led to the creation of lots of other similar silhouettes too, including large animals and trees. The birds remain a firm favourite and are now used in homes all over the world.

The wallpaper birds are cut from collections of vintage and designer wallpapers. They come with adhesive included and measure about 20cm by 25cm.

Supernice are selling limited edition Inke wallpaper birds in pairs, with the choice of pink, orange, blue or green colours. A pair of birds on their own would work very well used on a plain white wall, or you could buy multiples and create your own wall art collage.

The wallpaper birds cost £16.90 for two from Supernice.

Ceramic coffee or tea cup
Ceramic coffee or tea cup

Here’s a novel cup for your favourite tea or coffee. Designed to look like the coffee shop takeaway cups, this one is in fact made of a pretty blue and white china. It comes complete with a heat resistant sleeve, so you can carry it around and not burn your hand whilst you drink it, and a funky rubber lid, just like the ones you’re used to getting with takeout coffees.

If you’re really into eco issues and being green, you could even take this ceramic cup with you to your favourite coffee shop and see if they’re prepared to serve you a cuppa in this, rather than their usual cups.
It’s a fun piece of china for all tea or coffee lovers and is only £12 from Rockett St George.
