Clifton's Wonderful Window Displays

The pod team in Clifton have been busy once again creating some lovely summery window displays. This month we have taken inspiration from Tokyo Milk, a nostalgic magical collection of hand creams, perfumes and lip balms. Our other window is inspired by our lovely local artist, Emmie Simpson to coincide with Bristol's Balloon Fiesta next month.

New Orla Kiely has arrived!

Our favourite handbag designer, Orla Kiely has just launched her new Autumn/Winter collection. The design follows her usual style but this time with a very autumnal colour palette of ambers and jades. We are all fans here at pod and especially love the new style of bag, the medium tote. We hope you like it too!

Rice is Nice!

The pod team have been working very hard creating window displays using bold and bright products from the wonderfully funky Danish company RICE. Their new Summer 2011 collection has some fantastic designs and colours together with some seriously crazy products, allowing us to have hours of fun, using duck watering cans, gnome candles and bamboo lanterns! Adding to the excitement RICE is holding a competition to find the best window display amongst their UK stockists.  As soon as we heard about this we were buzzing with ideas for vibrant and colourful scenes ... do you think we could be in with a chance of winning?

Creative Walls

'Creative Walls' is a wonderful book that will inspire you to organise and display your photographs, objects, textiles and ceramics. Geraldine James, the author of the book showcases some amazing displays that are visually appealing and truly innovative. 
"For me, a wall is a beautiful blank canvas. A great big opportunity."

Here are a few of our favourites from the book; the framed jewellery display is especially pretty! I'm feeling very creative now; this weekend could involve some paint, antique frames and canvases!

Pretty pretty!
Love this, such a simple idea

Knit Your Own Royal Wedding

Aren't these cute? Thank you to Heather's very talented Auntie Mary who has knitted these for us. The book 'Knit Your Own Royal Wedding' by Fiona Goble has been a huge success here at pod. To buy your very own copy click here. We especially love the intricate detailing of the beading on Kate's shoes and The Queen's pearl necklace is beautiful! If anyone has had a go at knitting the Royal Family, please email us a photograph and we will put it on our blog.
