It’s almost Back to School time folks and I couldn’t have a blog called homework without writing a post about it. So here’s my edit of stationery, backpacks, furniture, school shoes and winter coats. I also had a little help from my 9 year old assistant, Iyla, a mini-blogger in the making who has also compiled her pick of the best too.
Back to School Stationery & Rucksacks
When it comes to Back to School stationery, Dutch shop, HEMA (pronounced ‘hay-ma’) is the only place to go. They offer really good value pencil cases, notebooks and all types of stationery amongst a host of other homewares and accessories. HEMA launched in the UK for the first time last year which I was involved in. There are currently three HEMA stores in London but you can always buy online as they have a much wider selection.
Back to School Clothing, Shoes & Rucksack
Working within the limited parameters of what she can wear to school, here’s Iyla’s Back to School Edit below.
Back to school Furniture & Lighting
When it comes to furniture, I love the retro, vintage inspired pieces from Laurette at bobo kids. They are available in 15 different colours and are a real nod to the 50s.
