It’s been a busy few weeks as usual here at Liv’s HQ! So far in April the sun has finally started to shine (hooray for summer?!), we have had deliveries of new stock coming in thick and fast and we have been busy booking new dates into our workshop diary – there will be another new post coming on that soon!
Here is a rundown of some our favourite new finds that are now available to buy on our website. We are especially loving the beach boho vibes of our Madam Stoltz cushions and baskets!
Madam Stoltz are one of our favourite suppliers, and they are based over in Denmark. They are constantly changing their products along with the seasons so we are always finding new gems that are just perfect for our store. If you follow us on Instagram or have visited us in store recently, they are the supplier behind our fabulous face plant pots, that are just oh so cute!
But back to cushions… we just love the sunset colours from Madam Stoltz! From papaya pink to aubergine purple, they look extra good when mixed and matched on your bed or your sofa. Complete with fringing and tassel detailing, this range all come with feather inners and have either pure cotton or linen covers.
Dave the Dachshund, the newest animal in the Liv’s family (who is actually a garden bench – of course!) is also now available online! He is made of resin and has so much character!! We have definitely all fallen in love with him in the week since he first cam into store.
Don’t forget, we have the option of click & collect too so you can always buy the things you want on our website and then come and pick them up in store – that way you know we won’t sell out of what you want!
We have some more exciting news to announce here at Liv’s HQ!

Welcome to our brand new website and blog. Our aim is to inspire, encourage and share our love for interiors, home comforts and a balancedlifestyle. We’ll also give you a peek into the behind the scenes of an independent interiors shop and family business.
I’m going to start the first blogpost with what our hashtag #lovethewayyouliv stands for. It’s obviously a clever play on words with my name in it – I made it up myself ;-). However, the intention and hope was that it would sum up the ethos of Liv’s…
- Do what you love, love what you do!
- Style over fashion
- Great style is achievable on any budget
- Do something today that your future self will thank you for
- Surround yourself with stuff that makes your soul smile
- Incorporate a little Hygge everyday; Hygge (verb) To feel warmth, cosiness, comfort, snug: A sense of wellbeing, belonging, contentment, togetherness, intimacy, happiness.
- “Be present in all things, and thankful for all things”- Maya Angelou
We will soon be posting more about behind the scenes, keeping you up to date with all our new finds and making sure you don’t miss out on our upcoming events and competitions! So watch this space!
