Add Quirkiness To Your Home With Mia Fleur

It has been some time since I have found a little gem full of homeware delights, today I am going to introduce you to MiaFleur. I am all about fun, quirky and a little bit eccentric, so when MiaFleur describes themselves as this, well, it's a no brainer - it is going to be a fabulous online boutique!

MiaFleur was set up in 2012 by three talented ladies (Hollie, Amelia and Jacqui), they sell a range of marvellous interiors products, partly designed and handmade by themselves in Leicester and partly sourced from British designer makers, combined with a selection of home accessories and gifts.

The site stocks a quirky range of interiors products, including handmade textiles, home accessories, reclaimed and vintage furniture and some incredibly weird and wonderful ceramics. The tagline, ‘Because life’s too short to be minimalist’ sums up the style of the site perfectly. With so many wonderful products and a plethora of colours and patterns, you can’t help but smile.

I found it particularly difficult to choose which products to show you today because quite frankly I like EVERY single thing! So, please ensure you pop over to their website, you will not be disappointed. www.miafleur.com
