So excited! The Great Gatsby is finally out and can’t wait to feast my eyes on all those lavish costumes and jewellery. We’re predicting a massive interest in Twenties glamour. Giving a very firm nod to this trend are the rather fabulous Vintage Diamond Glass Pear Jewel Earrings from our collection of handmade jewellery.

Can’t wait for The Great Gatsby to come out this spring! To create our own bit of Twenties glamour, we’re thinking about beads, brooches and sparkling jewellery for the coming season. So we’re very excited about the arrival of the utterly gorgeous Crystal Flower Floral Swarowski Crystal Beaded Brooch Pin from our collection of handmade jewellery.
With all that talk of Blue Monday yesterday, we feel blue and all its associations got a real bashing in the media (yes, we were guilty of it too!). So today, we’re championing the colour blue and all the fresh, clean hues it can offer to your home. If you’ve seen this month’s Living etc, you’ll know that they are particularly mad for powder blue and its refreshing qualities. So in celebration of blue, here are some top picks from our gorgeous handcrafted home accessories range.
Well the sun briefly made an appearance here today so we’re officially embracing summer. If summer won’t come to you never fear, Swanky Maison has a whole host of summer sizzlers and coastal themed goodies amongst the home accessories section to cheer you up.
On sunny days making decisions can prove too taxing but with this Beach or Pub Sign either option is good! For just £19.50 this handmade recycled driftwood sign is a winner! Match it up with a large Driftwood Heart (£56.50) and this Driftwood and Whitewashed Timber Clock (£50) to complete the idyllic look for your home or garden.
We have a wide range of beach and summer themed signs, plaques and shelf blocks all of which are perfect for lifting your spirits and livening up your home. These shown below are very popular at just £24.50 for a large hand painted plaque.
If it’s the beach you like then perhaps you should adorn your home with a seaside theme. Dress up your sofa with these great seaside cushions covers (£32.50 a pair) and keep your tea warm with a matching tea cosy (£18) – great home accessories for a sunny conservatory, kitchen or living room.
Top off the design with these seaside inspired glass coasters (£20), tea light holders (£26) and clock (£42). Bright, cheerful and summery, whatever the weather!
No British seaside view is complete without some beach huts dotted about. We have Beach Hut Prints (£12.95), Beach Hut Cushions (£65)and even Beach Hut Wash bags (£20) to complete your summer theme.
So whether we get a proper summer this year or not, www.swankymaison.com has all you need to pretend!
