Homes & Gardens
Muddy says: Forever Green is a brilliant floral design business in west Herts, working throughout London and the home counties. Designer Nicky Pritchard specialises in flowers for weddings and special occasions and also runs fun creative workshops from her garden studio.
Muddy says: If it's good enough for the Queen, it's good enough for us! Petals have years of experience in creating beautiful floral arrangements and have even made a bouquet for the Queen.
Muddy says: A brilliant Berkhamsted interior design business that understands how people want to live.
Muddy says: Returned to Glory transforms pre-loved furniture and accessories to make them even more desirable and ready for new homes. It's double love!
Muddy says: number twenty won Best Gift Shop in the 2018 Muddy Awards. Step inside and you'll see why it deserved to win!
Muddy says: whatever you are looking for, you are likely to find it here. Three Wise Monkeys is a vintage and arts emporium like no other. Fashion, vinyl, furniture, lighting, arts and crafts materials and classes, readings from the resident medium, and a café for when it all gets too much.
Muddy says: Think you know candles? Think again. Taylor Benfield is a brand new boutique candle company based in St Albans. I'm not waxing lyrical, but it's quite something to be able to enjoy armchair travel as you are transported around the world, all your senses a-flicker, with Ligurian citrus, Mallorcan orange blossom and Cephalonian wild flowers. Evocative, luxurious and delicious!
Muddy says: this vibrant and always changing lifestyle store in Baldock is great for gifts and vinyl, but it's also a destination for interior design.
Muddy says: Emma's story is inspiring: she worked in retail as a fashion buyer, became a florist, then read a book called The 50 Mile Bouquet which completely changed her approach to floristry. She now grows all her own blooms on her flower farm in Barnet. Her business is organic, sustainable and seasonal, and her floral design is stunning and constantly evolving.
Muddy says: All In One Season is a completely delightful and fully immersive floral and lifestyle experience. Alice is the creative genius behind All In One Season, and she will transform your wedding or any other celebration with her unique Dutch style. You can also learn from her: she is a gifted teacher who runs wonderful workshops in the magical courtyard of her Arts and Crafts home in Letchworth. I'll keep you posted about the Dutch Winter House in December. It's unmissable.
Muddy says: Waterhall Joinery is a dream team of joiners and designers. They did some work for me a couple of years ago and I have since been telling friends and family how good they. Lovely to work with, too.
