On the hunt for great homewares

Great Outdoor Living‘s fabulous collection of cushions have got us looking at our sofa with fresh eyes! Their prints are modern and on bang on trend and their pocket friendly price point will have you tossing cushions all around your home and garden.

Vintage Hemp‘s kathas come in a wonderfully eclectic mix of colours and prints. Find unique furniture pieces at The Attic and the loveliest porcelain and glassware from The Vintage Tearoom.


Dress your walls

If striking wall art is more your style, shop the photographs at Abode, Arabic calligraphy by Natoof or choose a budget friendly abstract poster, framed and ready to hang.


Cool for kids

If good old fashion fun and a bit of mess is the way you like to play, our Saffron Souk is the place for you!

Keep your tribe entertained, inspired and best of all busy. Slime, play doh, mud kitchens, soft toys, personalised books and craft kits.

Celebrate their milestones, decorate and personalised their bedrooms and dress them to look like the little angels we know they are at heart, thanks to local talent Petite Lamb.

Don’t miss a visit to Life in a Balloon for brilliant balloons delievered helium filled to your door as well as the sweetest party accessories.

Spring style

Spring brings the best new arrivals from Saffron Souk’ independent brands and designer-makers.

Versatile kimonos and abayas are a wardrobe essential this season. Cue a visit to Melanie Gissing Design, Neon Starfish or Jessica Lily Design. Wear them over a swimsuit, to dress up a pair of skinny jeans or to glam up for a night out.

A few winning accessories – think tassel earrings, a cute pair of slides, a quirky sun hat – you’re looking fabulous!



Hit the beach

Whether you’re traveling or keeping it local,  a breezy dress from 2birds, a cute beach bag and a few cotton towels from Craftastic will get you beachside in style.

It may only be Spring, but Summer is just around the corner!
