Happy New Year, everyone! It’s OK, you can keep your shoes on for this blog post.
If you don’t follow us on Instagram you might have missed that waaay back in September I (Jo) moved from a flat into a house (not on my own, I brought my husband and baby along for the ride too because I’m super generous like that). Naturally we have spent a lot of time scrolling websites to source pieces that will transform our very blank canvas into something that feels like home. Now as lovely (albeit expensive) as it is buying new furniture I have discovered that it’s the little touches that make all the difference to a space. It’s the photos, the cushions and the little bits and bobs that make me smile and give our home its identity.
Enter Turtle Mat who kindly got in touch before Christmas inviting us to have a look at their range of mats and to choose a couple that we liked. The new homeowner (and thus frontdoorowner) in me found this incredibly thrilling and I had a fine old time perusing their wares. I have been a fan of the brand Scion Living for a while so I was really pleased to discover that a couple of their Scandi inspired designs were available amongst the many featured. I opted for the very cute Kissing Spike* and the rather dapper Mr Fox*.
As you can see, they’ve gone down a treat with both Poppy and Ada who have kindly tested Turtle Mat’s claims that they are super absorbent. It’s so handy that they are machine washable and can be tumble dried (the mats, not the babies) and I’m really pleased with this super practical but very stylish addition to our new home. I’m very tempted to get a couple more for the living room and bathroom, especially as their Lume collection of floor mats are all under £30! Bargain.
If you’re heading to Top Drawer in London this week be sure to tell them we said hi!
