This Battersea Blanket by Mary Penny is more stylish than the traditional tartan blanket and being designed by a graduate of the Royal College of Art, is perhaps closer to a piece of art than your usual bedding. The iconic London landmark Battersea Power Station has been woven into the blanket in bold colours against a subdued background on one side, with the colours reversed on the other . It measures 140cm by 190cm and is made from 100% Lambswool.

Heritage style fabrics can instantly transform a simple item into something classic and expensive looking. Simplicity and chic are often the key to an effortless retro look, shown here in this Bon-Bon Wool Blend Coat by US brand J Crew.
