K-List Round-up: the design edit

***Rachel Khoo would like to thank all the inspiring people who helped make the Khoollect studio a hive of creativity. Although the Khoollect studio’s doors have now closed, you can keep up with Rachel’s newest adventures on RachelKhoo.com and on Rachel’s Instagram and Facebook pages – and, continue to enjoy the Khoollect website’s stories and recipes, which will remain available.***


The idea of incorporating beautiful design products into your living space might sound like a costly venture, but by carefully selecting a small number of quality items (that don’t cost the earth) you can create a perfectly curated museum-worthy space at home. Here’s a collection of design items for £50 or less that the Khoollect team is lusting over right now:

  1. Museum gift stores can be the perfect place to pick up a new piece for the home (particularly when it’s a museum that focuses on the home). This Geffrye Museum Kite String Vase by Wild and Wolf adds a nostalgic touch and a pop of colour to your living space.
  2. We love a mid-century accent in the home of office, and these wonderfully retro metal sculptures from West Elm are just the thing to make old new again.
  3. Dress up a tired wall with a locally made print from We Built This City. Feast your eyes on this ‘Record Shops of Soho’ print.
  4. Designed for fun, this classic British Library game set brings a talking point and touch of quirk to your living room.
  5. Keep your plants cool (and your watering vessel cooler) with this brass mister from What You Sow.
