I adore these personalised paper portraits dolls by Jordan Grace Owens, and it appears I’m not the only one! Orders are currently backlogged due to huge demand and you can see why!
What a creative take on the family portrait! These little paper dolls are made to order to resemble all of your family members right down to the family pet or childs favourite toy. They have that cute retro feel to them thanks the moveable joins, but they are a little too delicate to use as toys and are more suited to a box frame. Best bit is this portrait can be updated whenever a new family member is added to your brood!
A great present idea to keep in mind for a future mothers day, fathers day, wedding or any event really!
No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, Hermit is back!
This week we will explore some amazing designs that will indeed make you do a second take, third and fourth even! I have discovered some really interesting pieces that play with your perception of space. They tell your eyes and brain an opposing story, performing the impossible and hold the viewer entranced in a state of disbelief.
Prepare to be amazed!

It is hard indeed to return to work after the four-day Easter break so this week let Hermit whisk you away to an exotic tropical paradise instead.
Let the warm sunshine bronze your skin, feel the kiss of salt air on your cheeks and let your toes sink into the soft sand as you relax and unwind in pacific style. Escapism has never been so easy…

Seeing plants on shelves isn’t anything new, but plants IN shelves? Well, that is the makings of something extra special.
Enter designer Domenic Fiorello and his stunning Plant Pods. A sleek, minimal design which comprises of a floating shelf that contains a cavity, or pod, to house a succulent or cacti. The shelves are available in either White Oak or American Walnut which has been machined beautifully to created organic, flowing curves that complement your chosen plant-life.
Succulents are very hardy plants that do not require a lot of water which is key in allowing this design to appear so slimline. The shelf becomes more like a plinth used to highlight the sculptural forms of the your selected succulent, a living installation that is low maintenance but looks modern and edgy.
Today I want to share with you the beautiful works by artist Jonathan Fuller.
Jonathan is a British artist that lives on the seaside in Cornwall, and his works use salvaged sea glass pieces that are collected from his local beach. Sea glass is the remains of broken items that have been weathered and shaped by the elements into smooth, textured and frosted fragments of glass.
He arranges the sea glass in simple designs which allow the beautiful colour and texture to shine within a stunning minimal sculpture. His pieces echo the ocean in their tones and their layered arrangement mimics the oceans ebb and flow.
I think his work is simply stunning, beautiful minimal art for the modern coastal home.
