Here’s all the inspiration you need to start making your home deliciously Instagrammable…

Pandora Sykes is on a mission to reignite our love of the high street. 

That doesn’t mean fending off hundreds of people in one monster department store as you attempt to buy the same 1,000 items as everyone else. Rather, it’s about curating your own personal style by picking out boutique items that you love.

And if Sykes’ lust-worthy window into her home seen on Instagram is anything to go by, she knows what she’s talking about. 

Here, she picks her favourite under the radar brands from independent boutiques that you can shop right now on Trouva.

1. Madam Stoltz

“I think they’ve really mastered this fine balance between extravagance and refinement.”

Madam Stoltz is an Indian-inspired Danish brand and yes, that really is as intriguing as it sounds. The brand’s designer Pernille Stoltz took inspiration from her trip to India and supports women there by employing them to create beautiful pieces for Madam Stoltz.

2. Slowdown Studio

“They make amazing, huge pieces of art that can either be used as throws or hung on your wall.”

The clue is in the name when it comes to Slowdown Studio. Think laid-back Los Angeles attitude (that’s where founding designer Marc Hendrick is based) and prints. Lots of prints. They’re sourced from all over the world and they’re truly something to behold…

“I love them. They’re a beautiful artisanal Moroccan brand with ceramics and textiles.”

If a Moroccan brand founded by a Belgian sounds a bit weird, think again. LRNCE founder Laurence Leenaert sources the production of the brand’s striking interior decorations in North Africa to maintain the collection’s authenticity. Think traditional Moroccan wares with a contemporary flourish. If you fancy shopping their collection in person, they’re now stocked exclusively at London-based boutique A New Tribe.


4. Tine K Home

“It’s really luxurious, but with a nod to the traditional. They use beautiful colours, too – I love their vases.”

Tine Kjeldsen created Tine K Home along with her husband Jacob Fossum in 1999. They celebrate Scandinavian simplicity and combine traditional handcraft with dusty colours and items sourced from trips to Vietnam, India and Morocco.
