Interiors: Jersey Ice Cream Company

IMG_8558 jicc-upstatesp-dining2









The Jersey Ice Cream Company are Tara Mangini and Percy Bright, designers and builders of beautiful things. The couple named themselves after a long-forgotten ice cream company whose embossing stamp they found at their first flea market together. This fittingly lighthearted name both connects the company to the past and sets the tone for their delicately sweet work. Together the pair transform spaces with a wonderful lightness of touch, using reclaimed materials and vintage pieces. I love their use of texture with a restrained colour palette and splashes of black. I also particularly like the fact that together, Tara and Percy offer a complete range of skills - design, sourcing, carpentry and styling, meaning that they can personally complete a whole project themselves, with little need for outside help. If you are interested in seeing more of the wonderful work of the Jersey Ice Cream Company, visit their website. They also have an online vintage shop here.

House Tour: Sophie & Nick

Remember that pretty pink bathroom that I featured a few weeks ago? Well here is a peek at the rest of the house. It belongs to my good friends Sophie and Nick and I shot it recently for Apartment Therapy. You can look at the full house tour here. Sophie and Nick are a very stylish couple who live in a large Victorian house in Manchester with their two daughters. It is one of my favourite places to visit, as they have a happy home with lots of good stuff to look at, great food at the table and are generally excellent company. Thank you for letting me feature you Sophie & Nick!
