Moska has the British Stamp of Approval....

When it comes to dressing for the season, we immediately take our personal appearance into consideration and run out to the highstreet in desperation to have the latest piece from Topshop or the newest shoes from Office. But does that mean we should side line a place we spend a considerable amount of time at? A place that wouldn't be called home without being, well, homely?

Step aside fast-fashion homeware pieces from the likes of Primark (I know you don't all really like to have the exact same bed spread as your best friend...) and wave goodbye to the mundanity of high street department store homeware collections. For 2012 is the year to rally together support for all of the upcoming British designers that are doing us Brit's proud in the art stakes and turning your home from so 2011 to very Handmade Britain 2012....

Moska is championing designer talent from graduates through to crafting professionals, giving them a platform to meet one of the most outright necessities in customers needs today: to provide quality products with that quirky and creative difference. And there is no better place to source products like this than from emerging designer talent, especially from Britain where the current trend is about recycling the old and turning it into something brand spanking new. So whether you're into vintage revival, recovering retroism or making a statement with clean cut and simple designs; be assured your home will be instantly updated with a unique piece from

Below are a few of my personal favourite products available from the site:

Vintage style sign

This handmade sign by Harriet Beeby is just the quirky and vintage inspired decoration I like to have in my own home. Cut, sanded and expertly painted by the designer, the piece is then distressed for that decadent feel. This "Fluff and Fold Service" sign has influences of yesteryear with the 25$ lettering - making it a quirky decoration for your home...I'll be hanging mine above my washing machine!

Love Birds Cushion
Want to be all loved up in 2012? Well who needs that when you can get that warm fuzzy feeling at home with this 'Love Birds' cushion in lime and purple. The bird print is going to be huge this season in fashion alone, so why not inject some on trend style into your home with this cushion and instantly update your living room or bedroom? Digitally printed in the UK, a matching lampshade is also available - twit-twoo....

Wish List Canvas

My favourite pick from the site has to be the personalised 'Wish List' canvas. A perfect reminder
for those new years resolutions that you instantly forget come mid January, this item can be created specifically for your own dreams and ambitions for 2012 or life in general. This is such a cool idea and would even make an unusual gift for a wedding or house warming present. ♥ it.
