Rowen & Wren

September is a dangerous month for me. I’m always at risk of forcing myself into a baked bean and water diet. You see, it’s at this time that the autumn winter ranges come out and every year I am tempted in a hundred different ways.

This week, I stumbled across Rowen & Wren and boy, have I been tempted! There’s just something so enticing about their three latest ranges, which seem to promise to do so much more than just make your home a little prettier.

‘Distant home’ speaks of far away places, with ethnic accents that don’t scream of tourist tat but instead use traditional techniques and a neutral palette that fit elegantly into the pared back artisanal style that’s been so big in the UK this last couple of years.

Stone bowls in Rose, Shingle Grey and Marble £48 each, Rowen & Wren

Natural horm teaspoon £4, Rowen & Wren

Denton box pendant £172, Rowen & Wren

‘Refined rural’ is a country style that has nothing to do with chintzy prints or doilies. Instead it’s a more contemporary take on the look, still homespun and gentle with rustic textures and colours, but with a less self indulgent, more practical edge.

Shere wool cushion £49, Rowen & Wren

Hana teapot with wooden saucer in Glossy Sand £78, Rowen & Wren

Pippin Greywood flower rack £36, Rowen & Wren

‘Timeless living’ is the vintage range which is all about found treasures that will surely become family heirlooms. There’s a hint of the industrial in the silvery touches and chalky textures, but also a beauty that softens the look and ties it together with the rest of the collections.

Flori tarnished silver pendant £84, Rowen & Wren

I can’t tell which of the three ranges I like best but I’m leaning towards ‘Timeless Living’ at the moment. What do you think?

PS Family and friends – I am majorly in love with those bloom vases, if you’re stuck for a Christmas present idea. Just saying…
