As part of the RFW Loves section of the blog here I share all my favourite brands. Brands that have an ethos similar to mine. Only affordable, innovative brands who hit the mark appear here though. All thoughts and opinions are my own even if items have been gifted to me.


I hope you enjoy getting to know the brands as much as I have. I’m always on the look out for something a little different so if you’re a company or you know of a company that would fit please do reach out and contact me. I’d love to create a little black book of ethical companies who align themselves with the slow movement.

The thing is though that sometimes it’s hard to visualise just how a socket or switch is going to look with your decor and that’s where ‘Find Your Style’ from Schneider Electric comes in.

ufurnish A Totally New Way To Shop


This post is sponsored by ufurnish. What if I told you there was a new way to shop for furniture? No really. A totally unique way that allows you to find and compare all that is home decor.
