The Little Black Book: Homes & Interiors

  • Consilio Interiors, Berkhamsted

    Muddy says: A brilliant Berkhamsted interior design business that understands how people want to live.

  • Three Wise Monkeys

    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.

  • Taylor Benfield Candles

    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!

  • Staffy B

    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.

  • Urban Flower Farmer

    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.

  • All In One Season

    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.

  • Waterhall Joinery

    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.
