Fabulous Design in the North

On Saturday I exhibited my homewares at Home Is In The North, a brand new interiors pop up event run by The Social Butterfly. It was a delight to see hundreds of visitors piling into the impressive Halle St Peters venue, in Ancoats, Manchester, for a day of design inspiration and shopping!


It’s always a joy to attend these events, and the atmosphere at Home Is In The North is one of the best I’ve experienced. Visitors were in high spirits and full of praise about the range of products on show by each indie business/designer. There was also a great camaraderie between the exhibitors, particularly as many of us had met up before the event for the pop-up photo shoot around the city.

If you were unable to attend the event here’s a little recap of what the day had in store.

Thanks go to Garry Lomas for his fabulous photography of the day.

Don’t miss the next Home Is In The North, which has already been scheduled for Saturday 15th November, at the same venue. Get it in the diary quick!!!

What I Always Wanted




‘Home Is In The North’ – A brand new interiors event coming to Manchester

I’m exhibiting at the first ever Home is In The North event on April 26th! The event is taking place at Halle St Peters in the Ancoats area of the city and it promises to be an interior event like no other. Not only are there 30 fabulous independent designer-makers selling their wares, but there will also be a number of interactive workshops going on throughout the day and some yummy food stalls too!

Home is Flyer There’s already plenty of buzz around the event. This heightened recently thanks to a pop-up photoshoot around the city, where many of the exhibitors (myself included) created homely settings with their products in various locations in Manchester. The professional photographs are now being used to promote the event, but I’m pleased to show you some of the behind the scenes shots I captured myself, to give you a flavour of what to expect!
