    The Shop At Number 57

    by  • 30/03/2012 • Country style • 3 Comments

    I’m a tad excited this week to share news of a fabulous new online home store, The Shop at Number 57 – an eclectic mix of vintage style and all things British. It’s very close to our hearts here at Country Homes & Interiors as the shop’s been created by Marie Nichols, a very talented Interiors stylist who works with us on decorating features.

    Combining a talent for transforming forgotten treasures into stylish accessories for the modern home, and a keen eye for styling gorgeous interiors, it’s no surprise that The Shop at Number 57 is a treasure trove of exciting finds.  Marie scours flea markets and junk shops for hidden gems; the rest of the time she can be found in the studio designing bespoke pieces, from craft kits to limited edition artworks

    With dreams of running a seaside shop one day, I get the feeling that The Shop at Number 57 is the start of something even greater.

    I’d love one of Marie’s cross stitch kits to while away the hours…Which piece is your favourite?

    I recently discovered Lucykate Crafts, a blog by designer/maker Amy Adams with updates on her needlecraft makes. She shares tutorials for lovely projects – the owl egg cosy caught my eye and would brighten up a breakfast table. For more inspiration take a look at Amy’s craft kits, which include all the templates and fabric you‘ll need, or browse her handmade soft toys at Etsy for gifts.
