It is this time of the year again, when I get itchy feat and feel like the whole house needs a makeover. In mood for cosy materials and a warm colour scheme, I made an inventory of our autumn and winter decoration- even brought down the box with Christmas decoration from the loft- and decided important key pieces for the re-decoration are missing. Knowing where to shop my desired items in Germany, I had to search for new suppliers now living here in UK. Where high street shops often supply more or less the same, independent shops often offer a greater and more individual variety online. And this is exactly where my search started. I was stunned about the diversity of truly wonderful online shops here in UK and want to present the best ones here to you over the next few weeks. Today the journey will take us to Rockett St. George, a stunning online shop of homeware with an unique and quirky style- just the way we love it here at suki and pink.
Lucy and Jane are not only the owners but also the creative mind behind Rockett St George. They started their business over the passion for re-designing and gathering their car boot finds, together with samples of paint charts and home magazines to brainstorm a new look for their homes, while enjoying a glass of wine. I’ve been told that “hours were spent browsing antique shops, flea markets and car boot sales looking for unique finds until both of them hit on the same idea at once… they should start an online shop!” Rockett St George was born in 2007 and has been growing ever since.
Their passion for all things beautiful is reflected in their fine product selection and as a customer I felt taken care of in the most positive way. Asking them about the latest interior trends for the upcoming season, they mention “Marble, Metal and Soft Materials – mixing up textures such as sheepskins and leather”. Just exactly what I was looking for to get a cosy and stylish feeling for the winter season. If you are Pinterest-addicted like I am, you already came across the marble trend, and may have already discovered the top trending mix of different textures in one of my Living and Home Decor albums. For me it is just the perfect addition for an industrial themed home decor. Have a look at some of the lovely products, available at Rockett St George.
