I have a new blog, dear people!! After nearly 5 years of working on All Kinds Of New, I am excited to be embarking upon a new venture with a very good friend of mine. Please check out our new joint ‘home’ at http://morningedit.com/.
Morning Edit is an inspiring online ‘home’ for design-lovers, object-hoarders, print-admirers and for anyone who obsesses over even the tiniest of interior objects. So that’s you and us, guys!
Having worked together for over 7 years as Researchers in the publishing industry, sourcing new talent for both the global Interior and Stationery markets, Angie and I have embarked upon this exciting adventure of bringing together even more loveliness all under one roof for you to enjoy. We’ve been wanting to develop this for ages, and finally we’ve got things happening!
And so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE come and visit us… our new home. Thank you so much for visiting All Kinds Of New and following my sporadic, creative ramblings… if you’ve enjoyed your time here then you’ll love Morning Edit even more!
See you soon!
I am so excited… My name is finally in print! Yes-siree!
Grab and cuppa, and check out the brand new issue of Paper Runway – an amazing, lovely Australian magazine which has only been in circulation for just under year, and celebrates all things paper, art and craft-based! I have just started contributing features to Paper Runway which is both humbling and exciting! It’s a really lovely mag, available both online here and in certain stores worldwide (including Paperchase, Tottenham Crt Rd, London shortly – whoop whoop!).
It was such a joy to write for this magazine…my features with the wonderful Philip Sheffield and Barry Goodman can bee seen on pages 27 and 58, and their work looks fab, don’t you think?!!! Both Philip and Barry were very kind to allow me to interview them! Such lovely, talented gentlemen!
Issue 5 will be coming out in a few months time…watch this space for more installments!

There is an amazing little gallery / shop in Edinburgh that I cannot recommend enough if you happen to be visiting this breath-taking city…The Red Door Gallery can be found in the creative hub of Victoria Street, and is a perfect place to go if you are gift-shopping and want something more exciting, more interesting or just downright more unique than your average high street shop. This year, the guys at Red Door are celebrating 7 years as one of Edinburgh’s most distinctive boutique art spaces, supporting the work of independent and emerging designers with their dedication to presenting original, inspirational and affordable artwork. So definitely worth a visit.
Artists ‘housed’ by the Red Door Gallery include Andy Smith, Hannah Waldron, Seymour, Hanna Melin, Chris MacFarlane, Elsie Dodds, Karin Akesson, Alice Melvin, Me and Zena, Helpless Romantic, Donna Wilson, Third Drawer Down and Miso Funky (to mention but a few)…phew! Here are a few bits and pieces from just a few of these talented people…available to purchase online:
Jewellery & gifts
‘Half Way Home’ tenements:
How lovely are these tenement models above? Red Door recently constructed ‘Half Way Home’, a show created from Finch and Fouracre’s Tenement Model Kits which have been customised by a selected group of artists. The guys at Red Door like to think of the gallery as a temporary home for all the artwork and objects they are provided with – almost a stopgap on the way to their final homes (which in Scotland might just be a tenement flat). Such a nice idea! And so a selection of artists were all invited to customise a model in their own distinct style. Each Tenement is available to purchase, ranging from £35 and £75 depending on how intricate each design is. The two designs above are by Andy Smith (£45) and Emily Hogarth (£55)… F A B !!
I have been lucky to have one of SusyJack’s 2009 calendars..and I have to say, it has been so nice to have this on my wall and to turn the page every new month and enjoy a gorgeous new design… And so I thought it would be nice to round off 2009 with a sneaky look at what SusyJack has produced for 2010! I am not sure if i’ll have one for the new year – i’ll have to see what Father Christmas brings (fingers crossed..fingers crossed!!!). But in the meantime…please enjoy the following… Lovely lovely lovely!!!!! Susy does have some really nice stationary items…so be sure to check out her website for a closer look!
Lush Designs really are true to their name, offering lovely lush prints on a diverse range of gorgeous homewares. Their range includes some really beautiful pillow cases (ideal as a gift for couples!) tea-towels, aprons and lampshades (check their website for these!). The tea-towels are almost too good to use!
Lush Designs have also launched their Beast Wishes greeting card range…and the colour combinations are just fab! Really vibrant and quirky!!
As well as their online store, Lush Designs have a studio at Cockpit Arts in Deptford, South London, and they exhibit their designs at various craft fairs throughout the year….so be sure to pay them a visit!
