We’re self-confessed interiors addicts here at triplemelt, obsessively looking at our fave home decor Instagram accounts for inspiration, pinning like mad-women on our interiors boards and discussing our next room makeover. I’ve posted about my dark blue lounge and pink spare bedroom before and, having moved house recently, Ashling’s step-by-step renovation will be coming soon to our interior section!
We all have very different home styles, but, with six kids between us we gave up weekend afternoons casually wandering around home stores years ago. Doesn’t stop us doing it on the internet though, right? Here’s a round-up of the 3 shops we’re constantly browsing/buying from. Oh how we, our homes and our shopping habit (but not our husbands) love them!
My go-to site for cool, eclectic interiors, Graham & Green is a family-run business that’s been going since the 1970s. With just one flagship store in Baywater and two other shops in Notting Hill and Primrose Hill, the stores are hard to stumble across unless you live in the Big Smoke. The good news, the Graham Family have recently moved to Bath and renovated an old Bakehouse which has become their headquarters and is currently, their only store outside of London. For the rest of us, their online site is a diverse nod to rustic artisan, bohemian and botanical trends that can play host to our interior shopping habit regularly.
Launched as a catalogue based business, Cox & Cox’s site showcases a simple but stylish design aesthetic that seems to retain its own brand style on every product it sells. Made for a more sedate customer who wants a calm, classic living space, you’ll be hard pushed not to find something you want to buy every time you browse.
One of our all-time favourite homewear stores, West Elm is a relatively recent American import that launched in Brooklyn in 2002 and found its way to our shores in 2013. With just one flagship store on Tottenham Court Road, their online site is a saviour. Their affordable but beautifully designed furniture has created strong competition for UK homestyle stalwarts Habitat and Heals.
