This homeware collaboration is going to brighten up my 'desk'

Like most people, I think I've become obsessed with homeware of late, given that I'm spending all my time indoors right now. I don't have a dedicated office, so I've set up a temporary workspace on my dining room table, and while it's not perfect, I've tried to brighten it up with things like flowers and pretty mugs.

Which is why Anissa Kermiche's latest vase collection has peaked my interest. The jewellery-turned-homeware designer, best known for her Love Handles vases that have taken over Instagram, has just collaborated with cult shoe brand NODALETO on an exclusive design.

The classic Bulla Corta boots have been transformed into a ceramic vase, designed in three colours: red, black and white. - they are the perfect reflection of Anissa's tongue in cheek approach to interiors.

Anissa says, 'During a conversation two years ago, Olivier (artistic director and co-founder) introduced me to the Nodaleto project. I was immediately struck by Julia’s designs and their architectural aspect. The first idea was to integrate a jewellery piece into the show, but it naturally developed into a ceramics project, just as my vases were gaining momentum. The vase is inspired by their signature boots in a deep-seated shape.'

If this collection isn't quite your style, then I think you'll be excited to hear about the new printed Love Handles and Jugs Jug, coming out on Easter Sunday (next weekend if you've lost track of time, because I have).

Inspired by the beautiful artwork of William Morris, the new prints are all about delicate and feminine florals.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
