A Feist Forest and Miscellaneous Adventures have collaborated on this adorable cup and spoon that have been fashioned in the shape of a Jenny Wren.  A true collaboration, the 'tail feather' spoons were handmade from sustainably produced British Cherry wood in small batches of ten by Miscellaneous Adventures and the cups were produced by A Feist Forest.

Last year Jonathan Adler paired up with Motorola and the result was the stylish Moto x Pure Edition, an Android phone designed by Adler which gives more than a passing nod to his mid-century modern aesthetic.  The limited edition collaboration consists of three variations of the Moto X Pure Edition and combines an elegant white front housing and silver accents with a half circle, honeycomb or Bridget back design.

The best part? The phones are now on sale.

Former Miss Bermuda Lillian Lightbourne has been making her mark on the modelling scene in the UK and as such she has begun to appear more often in print and online.  We have been keeping track of all the places she's turned up recently, from the runways of Vivienne Westwood and Palmer Harding at the recently concluded London Fashion Week, to modelling Ivy Park for Top Shop or today, showing us the best way to wear to wear shiny trousers on The Guardian's website.

Shoes are my weakness, so who knows what I would have done if AKID had been around when I was growing up?  With perfectly on point versions of the latest styles but in smaller sizes, AKID fulfils its promise to keep their customers looking fresh.

The One Piece by yuue design is a pretty way to dress up your desk.  The organiser is cut from a single piece of Beechwood and comes in a matt ombre paint finish in vibrant colours.  Various lines and shapes intersect the surface and can be used to hold pens, business cards, a phone and other accoutrements turning what is typically a disorganised surface into beautiful order.

We haven't enjoyed any retail therapy for more than a year, so we felt we were more than overdue.  Luckily, earlier this month Sunnyroad Designs, a local interior design business that has over the last few years steadily been building up a loyal following and making a name for itself, opened its first retail location on the outskirts of Hamilton.  The beautifully refurbished and light-filled premises now house a retail space, a showroom-cum-studio for meetings with clients and offices. 

Named after co-owner and interior designer Ashley Ferguson's Swedish grandmother (hence the adorable Dalecarlian horse on the logo), Sunnyroad creates Pinterest-ready rooms that are relaxed, casual and effortlessly stylish. The store is full of those unique items that are guaranteed to complete a room: throw pillows, lamps and chandeliers, occasional chairs and vases.  Should a particular item not be immediately available, it can easily be ordered for delivery within a few weeks.  If interior design isn't in your wheelhouse, Ferguson or co-owner Jyna Heinicke are now conveniently on site and can offer you their guidance and considerable experience.

The End Grain Coffee Table by West Elm is made by slicing a thin cross-section of a tree trunk and mounting it on a metal frame. Because the wood is cut so thinly fewer trees are used in the manufacture of the piece and each table is unique in its shape and grain.

As we've mentioned before, Bermuda will host the 35th America’s Cup with the final races slated to take place on the island in 2017.  To commemorate the regatta, lead sponsor Louis Vuitton has released its America’s Cup 2016 Bag Collection.  The collection features the newest Damier Cobalt Regatta print in red, white and blue (the colours of several of the participating countries and the host venue) over which the "V Gaston" logo, emblematic of Louis Vuitton's spirit of travel since 1901, has been superimposed.  The design and colour scheme also reference the logo that has been produced for the occasion consisting of a simple triangular design which represents sails, or perhaps inadvertently the infamous Bermuda triangle.  The line includes tote bags, luggage, wallets, passport covers, shoes, scarves, key rings and bag ornaments fashioned in the likeness of the 45ft catamarans that will be raced.

The collection is available now for a limited time only.
