The Home Series: A Favourite British Brand {And a gorgeous Giveaway!}

If there’s one thing I can get really excited over (apart from a new series of Call the Midwife. Or a Terry’s Chocolate Orange) it’s soft furnishings.
Mr M and I constantly have the chat about how much is TOO much on the cushion and blanket front, and the conclusion is generally drawn (always by me, strangely!) that if you can still find room to sit on the sofa, then there’s space for another pillow.
He has just accepted now that he’ll live a long and prosperous life perched on the edge of the settee.
You just don’t come between a lady and her comfort.

I was absolutely delighted to be contacted last week by the lovely people at Susie Watson Designs, to take a look at their soft furnishings line. I may have squealed a little. 🙂
I’m a long time lover of the brand, and have been collecting their pottery and swooning over their beautiful furniture and fabrics for many years now. The delicate patterns and elegant, soft colours are synonymous with such high-end craftsmanship, and I adore the quirky prints and beautiful trims on their pieces.

January for me, has always been a month of nesting, and surrounding ourselves with cosy interiors to see us through long, dark evenings until we emerge again into Spring. And even Mr M couldn’t hide his joy at the prospect of cuddling up with our gorgeous, luxe new pieces.

Pale Olive Silk Cushion
Aubergine Velvet Cushion
Damson/Olive Harlequin Shetland Wool Throw

All of the Susie Watson range is made entirely by hand and, as such, each has a unique, artisan feel and a real quality finish. These are crafted pieces, made on a small scale by partners in Southern India. This is a heritage that Susie proudly encourages and one which she visits regularly, to oversee collaboration. See the film on how the textiles are made here.

The quality is stunning; the cushions are tactile and weighty, and the blanket is so soft, and big enough to wrap up in on those chilly evenings.
The little details, from the contrasting trim on the cushions to the hand-stitched labels on all the pieces, really make them that extra bit more decadent (I’m such a one for a quirky label!), and we have all been racing to get the special seat at the end of the dinner table this week!

You can check out all Susie Watson’s other homeware designs here. They really are very beautiful!

I’m also delighted to be hosting my first giveaway, in collaboration with them.
You can win two gorgeous cushions – one Silk and one Velvet – in a colour of your choice. Just enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below.
The winner will be chosen at random on Sunday 1st February and Susie Watson will contact them directly to organise delivery.
Giveaway open to UK and Ireland readers only.

Good Luck!

    Love the velvet cushion.

    Oh they are divine and I love that they are handmade with care. I love it when a cushion has some weight to it but I love Call The Midwife even more! 😉 xx

    These cushions are so beautiful, and so feminine. Could do with a bit of a feminine touch around our house, since I’m surrounded by boys… 😉

    Perfect for my daughters room, she would love them 🙂

    Ah Emma, these are gorgeous! I’ve been a little bit obsessed with home furnishings recently because our ski chalet is about to complete. Yay! I love the thought of all things cosy and these are perfect. I had never heard of this brand before. Stunning! x

    These are beautiful, Emma. I was never a fan of cushions until recently. Blankets, yes, but cushions, not so much. Since my boys started making me play on the floor, I’m all about the cushions. These old bones need comfort!

  16. January 27, 2015 / 10:29 pm

    What a delicious treat to be involved with such a fabulous company. I should love some of those divine cushions- not to mention throw and so much more- they are the perfect colours for our half-finished sitting room.

    I used to go to Susie Watson’s shop on Northcote Road regularly to drool. In those days I was mainly looking at the gorgeous pottery, but I am so into soft furnishings now. Great giveaway lovely! xx
