Our lives are continually changing; new relationships are forged, existing ones let go, our children grow, and people move home. As much as time ebbs and flows, we need time and space to adjust, recover, heal and eventually move on. Lockdown may have been a wonderful time for you, or you could have felt isolated or stressed with little time for yourself - or a combination of all three. One thing is for sure, transitioning back into old routines is not to be taken lightly. However, it can be easier if you give yourself a break. Remember to be kind to yourself; find things every day that bring you joy and peace.

Rainbow Sightings: the best places to find this symbol of hope
A symbol of hope, happiness and fortune, rainbows have been in the collective consciousness over the past few months with families across the UK creating rainbow pictures to show thanks to essential workers.
Not only have Brits been creating their own rainbows, but there have also been over 200 news articles sharing spectacular sightings of them during lockdown. With people taking photos from their homes and gardens, they serve as a reminder that good things are on the horizon.
Where do rainbows come from?
To form, rainbows require two essential elements: rain or mist in the air, and low sunlight unobscured by cloud or mountains. The light from the sun is refracted through the water in the rain or mist and creates a colourful rainbow in the sky.

What was your most memorable theatre scene?
I played a lonely neighbour whose only friend was her goldfish. When she woke to find that her fish had died, she desperately tried to resuscitat
Many of us have gone through changes in attitude and priorities recently, and this is reflected in our choices for interiors design. Our new appreciation for nature is guiding us towards natural materials and our desire for comfort and ease is met with a modern bohemian style.
Pieces that can transform an outside space into a relaxed and welcoming set up (as and when needed) are desirable with our temperamental weather forecast, and well as working beautifully inside the home. We have put together this collection to suit this transitional time in our lives to make the most of whatever situation.
As much as our classic range of French furniture and accessories has evolved over the years, the one thing we have been proud to showcase is our collection of French style beds. Inspiration coming from many celebrated styles, periods and regions from the Palais of Versailles to the rustic villages of Provence, if you are a fan of the French style - we have you covered.
We thought we would celebrate by bringing you our current top ten centrepieces to escalate your bedroom to a boudoir!
