Mother’s Day at Homefront Interiors
It’s Mother’s Day this weekend – but of course, you hadn’t forgotten. However, if you have somehow neglected to sort out cards and gifts yet, then don’t dash down to the petrol station for a disappointing bouquet. Instead, take a stroll to Margaret’s Buildings and choose something special from Homefront Interiors that’s as unique and beautiful as Mum herself.
It’s hard to go wrong with a gorgeous piece of handmade jewellery, and we have plenty to offer from some of the best local artists. Wendy Calder’s ceramic earrings, necklaces and brooches are elegant and understated – we particularly love the forget-me-not pendant (£18). For a little more sparkle, we’d suggest Jane Willis’s enamelled jewellery, in glorious, vibrant colours, or Joanna Swan’s fabulous earrings which combine beautiful glass beads with all sorts of twinkly little details.
Or if jewellery isn’t your mum’s style, then how about something else to wear, like Katie Wallis’ stunning silk scarves (£55)? In a range of prints inspired by nature, with soft colours and a lovely weight, they’re the perfect finishing touch to any outfit.
Looking to give the gift of pampering? We stock the luxurious Otvungen collection from Priddy Essentials, which includes deliciously aromatic lotions, soaps, scented candles and room diffusers. The beautiful packaging makes these goodies just right for a present, and we particularly like the 15ml tubes of hand cream (only £5.95) which are the perfect handbag size.
As well as furniture and larger pieces, we have lots of beautiful little trifles for the home as well. We love these sweet little glass terrariums, which start from only £14.95. Just add a pretty succulent inside! Or how about an elegant vintage-style copper and glass frame (prices start from £16.95)? These frames are a lovely way to preserve special keepsakes as well as photos, for a really thoughtful gift.
Of course, one thing you mustn’t forget is the card – but we’re here to help, with styles to suit everyone, from a glamourpuss by Artist Not Included, to intricate papercut art by Jessica Baldry, to gorgeous prints from Cats & Roses, inspired by the beautiful traditional decoration of canal barges.
And for the mum who has everything, why not choose an experience instead? We offer a range of creative courses which are great fun and leave you with something beautiful to take home. Visit our Courses page for more information, or simply pop into the shop to buy a voucher.
