Design Spotlight from Hereford Indie Food Festival: Bardot Living by Hattie Stock

BARDOT Living:

Adventure   |   Culture   |  Artisanal   |   Beauty   |   Tranquility

“I’ve always adored going on adventures to faraway places in search of one off treasures to fill my home. It brings me so much happiness to own a house full of unique pieces which all have their own story to tell, each made in parts of the world with wonderfully rich culture and skilled craftsmanship.”
Founder, Hattie Stock

Hattie Stock

Meet Hattie: Founder & Creative Director of¬†Bardot Living, she’s a beautiful blonde fellow bohemian with a passion for Modern Boho Interiors.

Every item is handmade by skilled artisans using traditional methods unique to the area they come from. 
No two pieces are the same due to the artisanal way they are made, giving each item its own unique beauty which cannot be replicated.
Tranquility is created throughout the brand and products by using a neutral and earthy colour palette which brings calm to your home.

From tableware to cushions and throws Bardot Living gives your home a Bohemian edge either with one off pieces or why not indulge and buy a whole collection of tableware for your next dinner party.

Sourced ethically:
“We source our stock from cooperatives set up to look after the artisans who make these beautiful items. Most live in extremely rural, mountainous areas, making it hard for them to sell their products and make a living. These cooperatives provide a market place and a consistent salary for the artisans. “

Look out for her blog too found here:

The Beautiful & Damned Bohemian: Catherine Vaughan

It felt a most opportune time to present Catherine Vaughan the creator and curator of¬†as this month’s Bohemian. With her array of artsy and edgy¬†publications from poetry to erotica this blossoming Bohemian talent is sure to be popping up in a quaint coffee shop near you professing her love through her poetic musings and sharing her heartfelt work to fellow dreamers.

In the line up¬†are more poetry events, her forthcoming novel: “Welcome to Wonderland” plus some musical surprises. Vaughan will be delving into the recording arts think Jack Kerouac reading his poems along to Jazz music remixed with¬†Britney Spears/Jessica Simpson. It’s an epic treat in store combining Vaughan’s notorious penchant for mixing the shallow and vain alongside¬†depth and poetry. Only she can pull it off! She may be the only soul on earth to simultaneously appreciate Kim Kardashian and Hemingway and fittingly so as she¬†possesses both their unique talents concurrently¬†in a way no person has before…

Watch out world Catherine Vaughan has come to conquer….
