With a background in fashion, interiors and styling, and a loyal following in the UK, there’s no question Jan Constantine has a unique style and good taste that appeal to many. Her collection of hand-embroidered soft furnishings show that the art of embroidery need not look dated, only to be retired to storage, rather it can seamlessly blend in with today’s interiors. Jan’s goal is to keep this ancient, hands-on skill very much alive and desired. When you peek at her online collection, I think she’s well on her way.

I’m sure you’ve already heard about the new bedding from Dwell (I love the Chinoiserie collection), but did you know that it’s now available at Design Public? Well, okay – not exactly. But it will be around mid March. For now, you can browse the collection on their website, check out the prices, create a wishlist, and even leave your email address beneath items you’re interested in and Design Public will contact you as soon as they are available. So everything you see here can be yours, around mid March. Tempting, now isn’t it?
