If you're a design freak who likes to bake then these Alessi Cookie Cutters are for you.
Elan Doran continues her takeover of Habitat with one beautiful design at a time. This Indiantale melamine plate is a real beauty and adds a bit of entertainment to dinner time.
Whether you use it to eat off or just stare at its pretty jungle designs, the funky retro-themed pattern creates a cool clash of colours to brighten up your life.
Get your own, and many other beautiful Doran designs, at Habitat. For only £2.50 it would be silly not to.
While the image may not always align with modern fashion, the influence of the traditional fifties housewife still often pervades in retro clothing. The demure element is rarely seen so explicitly as in these Domestic Goddess Aprons from Dollydagger.
The kitsch styling of these aprons is the key to their appeal, featuring traditional fabric prints that are cutesy and classic. Made in a variety of gingham and candystripe prints, the structure too is the picturebook definition of the fifties wife and mother.
The apron is available now from Dollydagger for £23.99, in a variety of colours and patterns.
As regular readers of this site will know, the world of Orla Kiely has been busy as of late, with the launch of her perfume as well as the Pattern book . Here's more new product, with a fantastic new range of kitchenware.
