Coconut Grove towels

If you prefer your towels relatively plain, with just a bit of decoration, then these white and cobalt blue Coconut Grove towels could fit the bill.

There’s something about white and blue which creates a fresh, crisp feel and there’s just the right amount of design on these. The towels are by Designers Guild, featuring delicate embroidered leaves.

There’s everything from a face cloth and bath towel, to a nice big bath sheet available in this design.

The Coconut Grove towels are available from Designers Guild, or from other retailers such as Amara.

Jonathan Adler whale butter dish

Whale butter dish

How do you store your butter – in the fridge in its wrapper/tub, or in a butter dish?

If you’re a fan of the good old butter dish and are seeking an unusual contemporary storage option, then you can’t beat the whale design dish by Jonathan Adler.

The dish is made from white fired stoneware, with a matt white glaze, and it’s part of the playful collection of ceramic animals.

It’s a quirky design and unusual to find a whale used in this way, although we think it could be a bit too nice to use for butter.

Whether you’d put it into practical use, or simply put it out on display, the wonderful whale butter dish is available to buy from Amara.

Safe knife storage unit for a kitchen drawer

Store knives safely in drawers

If you’re keen to store your sharp kitchen knives safely in drawers, so that you don’t accidentally cut your fingers when you dive into a draw looking for them (or is that just me?), then this bamboo storage unit is ideal.

Designed by Robert Welch and made from bamboo obtained from renewable sources, this solid wooden knife storage unit sits inside a drawer and can be used to store knives. Simply pop the knives down into the slots, which cater for knives of all sizes, and the blades will be hidden.

The drawer storage unit is especially useful if you’ve got young children and don’t want to have a knife block out on a kitchen surface. You could use this inside a high drawer, perhaps adding a  child-proof safety lock to the drawer as well, for increased peace of mind that sharp knives are fully out of reach from tiny hands.

The Signature V bamboo knife storage drawer is priced at £24.50 and can be purchased from Amara.

Missoni Home Parma bath mat reduced

Grab a Missoni Home contemporary sale bargain

I love the designs and offerings from Missoni Home, but they’re sadly not always budget friendly.

However, thanks to the sale at Amara, some of the lovely Missoni Home items are reduced, including this bright and cheery Parma flower bath mat.

The bath mat has a heavy weight towelling finish and is predominantly the fiery colours of bright red and orange, with a small dash of yellow and hot pink added in.

The Parma flower bath mat measures 80cm in diameter and, if you think it’s far too nice to simply be hidden away in the bathroom, you could always use it as a rug instead!

The red and orange Parma bath mat was £92, but is now reduced to £73.60 in the Amara sale. Don’t forget to check out the other sale bargains too!
