Lisa Stickley is being heralded as the new Cath Kidston, so if you like that shabby chic style, but want something less ubiquitous, then Lisa could have what you want. Her range includes textiles and bags, but my favourite has to be her collection of bone china.
Based on designs from the 50s and 60s,the china is decorated with retro patterns such as dots, stripes and vintage florals. The collection uses suitably vintage-looking colours with charcoal and old blue dominating.
Mugs cost £10 each, teapots £48 and the side plates pictured here are on sale, reduced from £26 to £16.50. Visit the Lisa Stickley London website to buy.
