Cool and quaint
Mother and daughter team Kathy Burgoine and Rosie Brady have combined their backgrounds in textile and interior design and professional photography to create an interesting, new homeware shop in Holt. Tatty Tides, nestled in the quaint Hoppers Yard, opened last November and is a small, pretty interiors and gift shop drawing inspiration from the countryside to the coast. As well as a beautiful and unusual range of textiles, including cushions and throws, you will find nautical inspired candles, rustic garden wares, gift cards and even jewellery.

A perfect fit
When the Furniture Workshoppe opened in 1989 it was as a specialist in antique pine and restoration. Now, almost a quarter of a century on, as the supplies of antique pine began to dry up, the family-run business moved into the reproduction market and now stocks a large range of furniture made from high-quality oak and pine.
At its Pine Workshoppe, set in an old Victorian village school at Scoulton, the expert team offers a made-to-measure service in pine and oak which means customers with awkward nooks and crannies to fill, or large alcoves, can have a piece of bespoke furniture perfect for their home. The pine pieces are finished on the premises, with the choice of a wax, lacquer or high quality painted finish in either white or cream. The Furniture Workshoppe also sells a range of gifts and accessories for the home.

You can do it!
Debbie Down, from Diss-based interior design store Rooms with a View, urges us to celebrate all things British and add some fresh quirky design style to your interiors with some of Britain’s emerging designers.
Our love affair with Cath Kidston’s 1950s’ florals and pretty prints goes on and on. Equally, Vanessa Arbuthnott’s fresh contemporary flora and fauna designs in her inimitable palette of gentle colours, are well established within our hearts and homes. And more recently Kate Forman’s vintage, muted prints bring a touch of faded charm to many interiors. Now, to add to this established British design backdrop, are exciting digital printed ranges from some new names. There’s the wonderful eclectic mix of vintage-inspired linens and tweeds by designer Kimberley Page, owner of Peony and Sage. Her signature hare prints are an absolute favourite, but all of her designs are fresh, simple and stylish.
The animal theme continues under the name of Emily Bond whose quirky animal linen prints make stunning country statement pieces. Under the design umbrella of Norfolk based St Jude’s, look out for fun screen-printed fabrics from Angie Lewin, Mark Hearld and Emily Sutton. These include hedgerows and seedheads, doves in flight and even an old curiosity shop print. Simply stunning ... and perfect for any 21st century home with an artistic slant.
Finally a new take on spots and stripes, try Sarah Hardaker’s pastel range. Faded roses and the age old British paisley also feature.
These new names celebrate the best of British. Fabrics designed, produced and printed in the UK with themes that will blend into all interiors, providing a cohesive and very British home. Rooms with a View is proud to showcase all of these new talents.
