Now that Tour de France is fast approaching, we’re thinking about our INTÉRIEUUUURS. So okay, cycling might not be our forte, but French-inspired maisons? Mais bien sûr!

Take me to chic please!

Well, those homewares were just fantastique. Quite frankly, we don’t see anything wrong in pretending our kitchen is a boulangerie…

Well, we are very excited about the arrival of Wimbles next week. So this month we’re updating our trophy tableware and working on our service. Ace-interiors, here we come!

This Sunday is Father’s Day, and dad is still giftless. How can this Obi-Wan Kenobi? Go retro we must.

Princess Leia takes interiors very seriously.

We’re very excited about the Orchestra in a Field classical music festival. Unfortunately music is not our forte – up until recently we thought Puccini was a variety of pasta. This is why we’ve got Somerset music maestro Charles Hazlewood, the man behind Orchestra in a Field, to pluck out the best classical tunes for us. And we’ll provide some playlist-perfect camping décor to accompany. Bravo!


Carmen Caravans:

A gypsy girl seduces soldier Don José in red-hot Spanish-set opera Carmen. ‘Habanera’ is a song about unbridled love. Which is exactly what we feel about these caravan-worthy interiors…

Fire up the folk:

Gayaneh is an Armenian farm worker at the centre of a rather fiery ballet. We’ll be humming along to this folksy tale around the campfire at Worthy Farm.

Camp Kiev:

‘The Great Gate of Kiev’ is a Russian piece by Mussorgsky, so here’s a bit of Slavonic style. Switch that teapot to a Samovar!

Trojan Tent:

Listen to the Greek love story of ‘Dido and Aeneas’ and fall for these Hellenic homewares. Perfect for the picnic ‘aria’…

Well we are very impresario’d by these. Music to our ears!
