Back to School

The start of September always gives us that lovely back to school feeling. Who can forget that first day with a brand new pencil case, new shoes and new coat – with name tags firmly sewn in by mum, of course!
Even though we’ve moved on (a little), we still love to surround ourselves with some new stationery to start off the new term in style….
1. The only bag our stuff will be seen in, the essential satchel and we couldn’t resist this cute pastel hue. Chelsea Satchel in Sweet Pea, Cambridge Satchel Company
2. Who says your pens can’t look pretty? This does… even when writing boring notes! Polka Dot Pen, Poketo
3. Let everyone know it’s yours with this personalised pencil case.  Monogrammed Case, Friendly Handmade
4.  With this cute planner, there’ll be no excuses for not being organised. Perfect Mini Planner, Poketo
5. These fun sticky notes will bring no doubt bring a smile to your face… Set of sticky notes, Topshop
6. Keep all your good ideas noted down in this pretty notebook. Historisk Note-book in pink, IKEA

Homemade is Best



The Cellardoor team ventured to Ikea at the weekend and being surrounded by lots of lovely things really got us inspired. We’ve already planned out our dream office, living room, kitchen…. now we just need to go and claim that Euro Millions win. Pah… us girls can dream.

Speaking of Ikea, we’ve recently come across this cute little baking book from the Swedish dream company. The 140 page coffee-table book presented in a very visually unique and spectacular way, and we instantly fell in love… not to mention the lovely pink cover.

Ikea says “90% of all the photographs taken in baking books look extremly alike. We wanted to try something different and present the recipes in a totally new fashion.The idea of the book became to tone down the actual cake and put the ingredients in focus. The recipes are presented as graphic still-life portraits on a warm and colourful stage. And when you turn the page you see the fantastic result.






The result really is stunning, and we were bowled over buy the simple photographs and clean layout and all the ingredients are styled in a fun way. The book contains 30 classic swedish baking recipes with everything from small biscuits to large cakes. So what are you waiting for.. lets gets cooking.
