So, how did we get to Wednesday already? Honestly, the weeks are merging into one. If only the weekends were five days long and the working week was two though, eh? Lauren from PM, that's what I say!
Anyhoo, there's no time for idle chit chat. Not when there's some stunning products from a brand new retro-esque home brand to gawp at.

Cordello Home has my name written all over its quirky, 60s-eqsue prints and bright and cheery textiles. I'm already thinking of snapping up those colourful side plates, above, and possibly even a cushion or two.
I love the story behind the site, too. Set up by Kate Shaw, Cordello Home began with a simple love for graphic design. "Out of this love has grown a desire to bring pattern to life in the home..."says Kate, going on to say the products are inspired by a simple heart shape, globally recognised as a symbol of love, emotion and passion. Everybody say 'aww!'.
While I'm not too big a fan of all things Valentine's-y (see here), I am wondering if this is not the perfect brand for all you lovers ahead of February 14. I know it's a while off yet, though. Still, good to be organised eh?
With a love of all things Italian, the brand's name came about as a result of two Italian words: 'heart' (cuore) and 'pattern' (modello), and I for one love the products' laid-back style. Price-wise, you'll be pleased the line won't set you back a ridiculous amount of moolah too.
Have you seen any new brands or sites you like the look of?
Until next time, folks...
