Pitch Perfect - beautiful camping


Camping just got pretty!  Forget the utilitarian khaki and embrace the pastels, sorbets and florals.

Whether you're off on your hols or headed to a festival, I've rounded up the pretty for you here.

My favourite picks, top to bottom:

A Touch of Chintz tent by FieldCandy £395. Purchase here.

FieldCandy are proud to add just A Touch of Chintz to our range - a beautiful array of vintage roses against subtle duck egg blue.
Each tent is built to withstand extreme weather conditions to the same high specifications of an expedition tent. 100% waterproof, UV fade resistant and with a breathable inner tent, you will even find the Original Explorer to be much roomier than most other two person tents complete with a large front porch for muddy boots.
“Stand out from the crowd with unique design, colour and creativity”.
Do check out their other innovative, bold and quirky designs, including many which can be personalised.

Recycled Wool Random Picnic Blanket by Solway Blankets £20. Purchase here.

These fabulous Random Rugs are exceptional. Made from recycled fibres they are a sustainable quality blanket and proving to be extremely popular.
Random by name, random by nature - due to the re-spinning process no two blankets are the same, each is totally unique and individual in colour combination.
Perfect for picnics, an extra layer at night or for wrapping round your shoulders at the camp fire.
