Contemporary owl design wallpaperQuirky contemporary and modern owl wallpaper

Turner Pocock Cazalet (whose funky zebra and tennis wallpapers we’ve featured previously) have added a gorgeous new wallpaper design to their collection.

The Owlet wallpaper features a lovely owl design that was inspired by Catherine Cazalet’s love of owls. The contemporary style wallpaper is produced in a sketch-type manner, reflecting the fact that it is hand-drawn, with owls perched on circular swirls of vine leaves.

The wallpaper colour is Hague blue on warm white and the design works as well in adult spaces as adorning the walls of children’s rooms.

The Owlet wallpaper is sold in 10m rolls and costs £72 per roll (including VAT). It can be purchased from Turner Pocock Cazalet in the UK or The Wallpaper Collective in the US.

Modern technological kitchen bin in yellow

Techno bin

The Sense bin is no ordinary kitchen bin.

This clever bin makes full use of infra-red technology, so it can sense when you’re approaching it (hence its name) and the lid automatically lifts for waste disposal. All you have to do is hover your hand within 10cm of the lid and, voila, it will be ready and waiting for your rubbish.

The 50L slim line hardwearing bin is perfect for use in a kitchen. It’s made from non-corrosive iron and finished in a smooth and glossy powder coating. We particularly love the striking colour of the glossy yellow, but it’s also available in turqouise blue, black or stainless steel.

The usual high street price for the Sense bin is £110. However, for the next five days you can take advantage of a special offer at and buy the bin for only £49.

We can’t resist this handmade whale cushion by Lettie Belle!

The organic, hand loomed cushion cover is decorated with a deep blue whale, made from felt and leather, which has been appliqued onto the front of the cushion.

Although it seems like a relatively simple design, we love the attention to detail, including the neat white outline stitching and the heart-like shape featured within the fin of the whale.

The whale cushion costs £25 and can be purchased from Lettie Belle’s store on Bouf.
