Brighton Beautiful

Brighton has a distinctly unique feel about it that doesn't seem to found anywhere else and has you pining for it after too long spent away. Maybe it's the sea air, perhaps it's the mismatched buildings that seamlessly blend with one another, or it could be the wonderful mix of people that make Brighton a place we're proud to call home. Whatever it is, it's working and it seems that the city has everything you need and more, from places to lunch, brunch and dine, to art exhibitions and the most amazing array of shops in the famed North Laine, which, in our books, is Brighton's hottest spot (we're not biased, promise). 
Whether you're just visiting, studying or a born and bred Brightonian, it has a charm that pulls you back however short your stay, which is why we think it inspires so many people through art, theatre and music and we have a little slice of that talent in the shop at the moment with some brilliant Brighton artwork. 
Print - £15.00, badge - £4.50, 'Brighton Flock' print - £5.00, pier artwork - £7.00, teatowel - £12.50, mug - £12.50.

The print, mug and tea towel encapsulate everything wonderful and unique about Brighton, from landmark places such as the pier, The Grand hotel and the carousel, to the Duke of York's cinema legs and the beach huts, making these pieces perfect for any kind of souvenir or fit for a proud Brightonian's home! 

The 'Brighton Flock' print and wooden pier print are new in store and show off Brighton in a fun and creative way - highlighting exactly what Brighton is all about. And any photo that manages to make seagulls look charming is a winner in our eyes! 

This little brooch is one of four designs of quintessentially Brighton places and scenes, including the Duke of York legs, the Pier and the bandstand. Great for a stocking filler or a little treat to yourself as the perfect accessory to the winter coats we will be donning imminently!

Lover of the Light

Now the nights are drawing in, the days are definitely getting colder and October seems to have made its mind up about the weather, it's time to get excited about autumn proper. This means bounteous mugs of hot chocolate, chunky knits and beautiful cosy lighting. As we mentioned in a previous post, the change in season is the perfect opportunity for a little redecorating, whether it's a few changes here and there or a completely new look set for Christmas and we have just the thing that will make you clear a space immediately for these wonderful additions to the shop.

First up is this beautiful metal 'Love' sign, £60. This sign has a gorgeous retro feel to it, reminiscent of fun fair signs in bold neons and flashing lights, although designed in a much more sophisticated and contemporary way. The cream looks fresh and neutral and would sit prettily against any styling - whether your home is Scandi inspired and minimalist, a vintage paradise or a gorgeous juxtaposition of styles and prints, it adds a unique touch to any space. The soft lighting makes it equally suited to a child's room or a welcome alternative to fairy lights, creating a calming atmosphere set to keep you smiling even when it's getting dark outside! Also available in a rust coloured finish, this LOVEly sign is sure to light up your life this winter (puns not included)...

Our other wonderful new additions are these incredible LED canvas prints which we have been excited about for months now and they have definitely been worth the wait. In a fabulous array of designs, these prints have the same quirky feel as the 'Love' sign above, but with bursts of colour sure to brighten any room and for any occasion. What better way to light up a wedding than directing them to fun? Or welcome guests with the neon 'Home' sign hanging in your hallway for a fun addition to any house! The variety of colours and designs means there's something for everyone with these canvases and suited to any number of places, spaces and styles! 

For more information, pop in to see these lights in action, or call the shop on 01273 676676. We hope to see you soon! x

Gift Ideas: a little autumn inspiration.

Tis the season of the birthday! It seems like lots of us are celebrating another year this season (myself included!) and it seemed appropriate to compile a post bursting with inspiration for those of us struggling to get those last minute gifts. Or, for the very prepared, it's time to get a head start on those Christmas presents (yes, I said it)!
Clockwise from top left: metal wall hooks - £8.95 each, metal bowl - £15.00, bird hooks - £9.00, coloured tea lights - £3.00 each, lotus tea light, £10.00, enamel bird jug - £18.00, card - £2.75
Home Sweet Home
Autumn always feels like a new start, the change in season bringing change in the air and such is the case for many moving house around this time of year and, birthday or not, a house warming gift is a thoughtful and personal way of welcoming your loved ones in to their new abode. Or you're sruggling to find a present for that one friend whose house always looks immaculatey decorated, so much so that it could be a set from Elle Decoration, but fear not! These delightfully unique pieces are stylish, timeless and chic, each injecting charm and class into even the most on-trend home. 
Clockwise from top left: glass box - £10.95, card - £2.50, necklace - £12.00, washbag - £25.00
The Minimalist
Present buying is always toughest when the receiver seems to have everything, or has their style so exacted that it's tricky to find something to blend seamlessly in with their long perfected look. Striking but simple typefaces are always a failsafe design for a classic and minimalist style, whilst an elegant pendant style neckalce is the perfect addition to any outfit, creating a focal point a little shimmer to beat those autumn blues. This glass heart box is great for trinkets, jewellery or decoration and with metallic being the must have tone this season, it is sure to fit right in with any style, colour scheme or design - even when you think your loved one couldn't add anything else to their collection! 
Clockwise from top left: squirrel tote - £12.00, floral washbag - £8.95, leopard intial purse - £12.00, mini make up bag - £6.00, hedgehog washbag - £12.00.
Bags of Inspiration
However much we ladies try and deny the streotype that we have a little thing for bags, it seems that there is a definite satisfaction we have in finding the perfect sized washbag, make up bag or handbag. Now I'm not talking the obsession with designer bags popularised in 'Sex and the City', but the number of purses, totes and travel bags that seem to accumulate over the years before finsing 'the one'. Thankfully, here at Rose Hill we have plenty of choice to meet all of your present buying needs! A range of styles that suit young and old alike make for a bag-lovers heaven, including the variety of make up bags, washabgs and totes as shown above. These are sure to fit every travel need, occasion and style - the hardest part will be having to choose just one!

In need of Indulgence
The first month back at work can be tiring and the change in temperature can bring on those dreaded winter lurgies, so why not treat someone to a little luxury for a few moments of rest and relaxtion. New mums, working mums (mums shouldn't need an excuse to be treated) or any of your favourite ladies (or gents!) need a bit of indulgence every once in a while and our selection of bath time treats are suitable for any age! With a mix of sweet smelling scents in all shapes and sizes, our bath bomb boxes (£12.50) provide the birthday girl or boy with a celebration to last as long as want, just as long as they aren't tempted to use them all at once...

We hope this has provided you with a little inspiration for any upcoming birthdays, Christmas presents or just to show your loved ones a little, well, love! For more information on any of the products feel free to call the shop on 01273 676676 x
