How to add a personal touch to...

Just like the clothes you wear, your furniture is a reflection of your unique personal style; making a statement about who you are, and what you like. So having the freedom to change (not only) the colour of your furniture, but also its feel and appearance, is the best way to find items you love. Not just today, but in the long term too. The beauty with handcrafted and made-to-order furniture is that it allows you to do just that. It gives you the chance to change elements to your exact tastes, and add optional extras that fit in with your unique lifestyle. All this for a fraction of what it costs to commission bespoke pieces, or refurbish old items. Our Unique Customisation Options At Willow & Hall we're big believers in this approach, which is why we offer several customisation options on each of our handcrafted furniture designs. We...

How to give your home the royal...

Royal style has long been synonymous with grandeur and opulence, as anyone who's been to Buckingham Palace during its opening season (or seen Netflix's The Crown) will know. But, as Meghan Markle prepares to tie the knot with Prince Harry in a ceremony watched by the world, there's one area of the Royal's lives that remains under wraps. And, that's their marital home - Nottingham Cottage. Once lived in by Kate and Wills, and more recently a bachelor pad to Prince Harry, Nottingham Cottage may be described as a modest 2 bed but we're betting the interiors are anything but. Well, it is on the grounds of Kensington Palace after all. What Meg and Harry's home does demonstrate however is that you don't have to own a palace to channel royal style. So if, like the young royals, your home is a tad bijou, or built this side of the...
