Yes, we're still being overrun with stylish 1930s properties, this time a mix of classic and modern with the Skye Haus in Graces Walk, Frinton-on-Sea, Essex.

Light Traffic Only mugs

Light traffic only

The black and white typography of these Light Traffic Only mugs makes for a great graphic look. Peer a bit closer and you'll realise the mugs are covered with the names of villages in North Essex and surrounding area and the design is in fact inspired by old white village signposts which are gradually disappearing from the countryside. 

The product is the combined work of illustrator Michelle Thompson and graphic designer Gareth Wild. This unusual design is also available on tea towels. 

These mugs cost £7.
