Vipp Shelters

I have been drooling over this company, Vipp for some time now. When I did some research and found out the brand started in 1939 in Denmark when Holger Nielsen made a bin with his metal lathe for his new wife for her hairdressing salon, I knew it was worth finding out more. Fast forward to today and the company is into its third generation and manufacturing a lot more than pedal bins. Bathrooms, kitchens and my favourite, prefabricated ‘shelters’ that are an instant 55m2 all-inclusive nature retreat.

Why I have launched a new business called Man Mail

Designer Man Cave is more than 2 years old now and from the get-go, it has always been lifestyle based which has opened me up to whole world beyond furniture. Yes, the main offering is all things interiors and design for men, but I am passionate about what I do and the help, education (and hopefully inspiration!) I offer to men. The interior world has always been very geared towards women and as I found a niche and Designer Man Cave has evolved, it’s been great to deliver my perspective and masculine finds, because I know there are PLENTY of men out there who appreciate good style and design, especially when it comes to their home.

5 hot new items for your kitchen

I also love to share great things with others – I hunt and gather and then present the top finds to you, to save you doing the hunting yourself.

I often find that men’s kitchens can sometimes be a little light on the decorative/style front. Yes, its a practical space, but that shouldn’t hold you back from injecting a little bit of cool. Here are some of my favourite kitchen additions on the market at the moment….
