Design Hunter loves... Cologne & Cotton

Cologne-and-Cotton-linensOne of the best things about living in Leamington Spa is the number of small independently owned shops we have here... something that's pretty rare on most high streets these days.  One of my favourites is Cologne & Cottonicon. Vicky and Jenny opened their first shop in Leamington back in 1989 selling beautiful hand embroidered fine cotton linens - "the sort of things our grandmothers would have made for themselves, and passed on to future generations" as they put it. They now have stores in Brighton, Cheltenham and London too and their beautiful bedding, linens and fragrances are also available online.

The Leamington shop is always a treat to visit. Their candles and home fragrances are lovely and their Egyptian cotton sheets are quite simply the best. Once I've lit my diptyque candle and climbed into a freshly made up bed I could honestly be in a boutique hotel..... well, apart that is, from the fact that I have to do the ironing first.
