Windsor Browne was born in 2012, but their story doesn’t begin there. They’ve been successfully selling stylish furniture and accessories for over 10 years, though they’re gone through several incarnations in that time. Windsor Browne was once part of their sister company Melody Maison,which sells French vintage furniture and accessories. Windsor Browne quickly became a successful business in its own right, and is now one of the leading on-line home furnishing retailers in the UK.

With furniture and accessories sourced from around the world, Windsor Browne have a stunning range of clocks, small and large mirrors, hooks, stags heads, Leather pieces, Tartan pieces, rustic furniture and interior accessories all in their own distinct, unique and quirky style.

Their new website is full of gorgeous new furniture and accessories for your home. With a few key pieces it’s easy to change the look and feel of your home. A new mirror or a clock is a great way to set the tone and you can accessorise around that.

I’ve very much fallen for the Vintage Oval Pocket Watch Style Wall Clock on the Windsor Browne website. It’s a real statement piece, a beautiful clock with a touch of rustic French charm, with distressed clock face that gives it an aged look. It is finished in antique cream with roman numerals and measures 47cm x 40.5cm x 5cm (width x height x depth). The Vintage Oval Pocket Watch Style Wall Clock is available for £36.95 and I love it.

Interiors: Melody Maison – Shabby Chic furniture & accessories

Like many people, spring is the time I tend to look around my home with fresh eyes and start to think about re-decorating, decluttering and re-organising things. It’s also a great time to really ring the changes and invest in new furniture or accessories. In recent years, vintage and shabby chic furniture has been one of the key home interiors looks. Specialists in vintage, French and shabby chic furniture, Melody Maison are one of the leading companies specialising in this style. I’ve been finding out a little more about them.

Melody Maison was started in 2004 a small spare bedroom in Yorkshire. The company grew into a leading retailer of shabby French Chic and vintage style home furnishings.

Melody Maison is a real family business, with cousins, brothers, aunties and daughters all working together. They pride themselves on exceptional customer service, with everyone striving to provide the very best service every step of the way.

They design, manufacture and distribute French style furniture all over the world. Their range of furniture is either designed by and made exclusively for Melody Maison, or sourced from selected suppliers. 

“French style” can mean so many things in interior design. From the understated pale aged shabby chic look, to the ornate and grand rococo style, to boudoir style chic using jewelled colours paired with gold. French style furniture is rarely modern in design. Vintage and shabby chic styles are full of character and can give your home a bespoke one-of-a-kind look.

Their website is full of so many gorgeous pieces of furniture and accessories for every room in your home, including clocks, lights and mirrors. I’ve quite fallen for this White Wooden Window Pane Mirror which I think would look fantastic in a conservatory, or in a sheltered spot in the garden perhaps.

This Window Pane Mirror is made from wood to look like a rectangular window with 2 sides and panes of mirror where glass would be.  It is painted white with a washed finish to look aged, and it can be wall mounted. Its dimensions are 49cm wide x 58cm tall.

Redecorating with Rodgers of York

When we bought our forever home three years ago we had a babe in arms and we were just desperate to get in. All the walls were simply slapped with white paint and neutral carpets were fitted. We just wanted to get in and get comfortable, then at a later date we’d think about wallpaper, nice furniture and turning our house into a cozy family home.

There are a few rooms in my house which do need some attention, the avocado downstairs loo for a start, but that’ll have to wait for now. I’d really love to stamp my style all over the kitchen too, but that needs a good deal of thinking about first. So style priority number one is my lounge. It’s a nice enough space, it is long and was originally two rooms which have been knocked through. At one end is the TV and toys, and the other is the open fire and all of our books. It’s a much more grown up and cozy space.

Rodgers of YorkI’ve longed to do something with the white walls around the fireplace and to make a feature out of it, I love teals and blues, so I’m thinking peacock shades around the fireplace to make it feel more opulent, probably something like this stunning  “Embrace” Harlequin wallpaper from Rodgers of York.

I love their selection of wallpapers, they’ve just started stocking the Sanderson Emma Bridgewater wallpaper, which is as stylish and on trend as you’d imagine it is.

I’d love a new sofa, this retro brown leather Halo Gable sofa would look fantastic opposite our fireplace, especially if teamed with this lovely Ercol Ravenna armchair, which would be perfect to curl up in and read a book in front of the fire.

Rodgers of York

I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in to some pre-Christmas redecorating, and with the help of the friendly and knowledgeable people at Rodgers of York we can finally have the stylish, comfortable, cozy home that we’ve always dreamed of.
