THE BEST SHOPS FOR LAST MINUTE HOMEWARE PROPS
You can’t beat foraging in the garden, park, woods or hedgerows. Look for fallen branches to wrap with fairy lights and dried seed heads to put in vintage vases.
KAY'S SHOP TO WATCH
I love the new PET range of outdoor rugs and cushions from Liv Interiors. They’re recycled plastic yet feel like cotton.
KAY'S FAVE LOCAL SHOP
I fill my basket with props and finds at my local monthly vintage street market in the summer. Vanil in Woodbridge is brilliant for modern Scandinavian inspired homewares. Trinovante Trading is a great vintage wholesaler with a lock up in Essex that you can even ask to visit.
