Pearl & Ivy Liberty Print Ears Alice Band from ASOS

Bow
Add a dash of summer florals to your look with this Liberty Print Alice Ears Band from Pearl & Ivy at ASOS.

Pearl & Ivy are London-based design duo Carly Beischer and Samantha Neary. They draw their influences from vintage styling and the glamourous designs of the 1920's and 1930's.

A flexible metal band within the Liberty print fabric allows you to shape the hairband however you like; be it in a sharp bow like the one pictured here – or go all out and give yourself a pair of ears; either way you can be sure your style will go the distance.

The bow is handmade and costs £30 from ASOS.

Pineapple Wall Sconce from Caravan

  Shop_pineapple2

We've featured quite a few pineapple inspired home accessories and this Wall Sconce from Shoreditch boutique Caravan is unlikely to be the last thanks to the kitsch appeal of this tropical fruit.

The pineapple takes centre stage, flanked on either side with an elegant candle holder. The metallic brass finish is particularly well set off by the turquoise candles pictured above. Measuring a substantial 52cm x 42cm x 15cm it would make a great feature for a retro lounge or hallway.

The Wall Sconce is yours for £89 – if you can't make it to the shop then you can buy it here.
