Cushion crush

You've been asking us about where to snaffle these gorgeous botanical cushions, so, voilà, the deets!

It may be dark and dingy outside but we’re feeling totally tropical here at Muddy, thanks to these vibrant botanical cushions from Buckingham interiors mecca Secret Messages Interiors. We’re featuring them due to popular demand – they caught the eye of a several of you who attended our literary salon, where they featured in our super-duper stage set.

When those clever, creative SM boys Chris and Rob aren’t jazzing up stages for us, they’re running a fantastic shop and showroom, both in Buckingham, and stuffed to the gills with modern furniture (they’re great on mid-century modern styles), stylish accessories and quirky gifts.

Chris (left) and Rob – it’s no secret, they’re awesome

They’ve been Muddy awards winners and finalists for the last three years so they are, obviously, amazing! Here’s a few more of our favourite things from Secret Messages Interiors …

I’m mad for all things copper right now so yes please to this chic floor lamp (£185)

Did someone say copper? I’m constantly breaking champagne glasses (can’t think why, hic!) and these beauties (£34.95) are top of the list for when I restock.

Hostess with the mostest? Damn straight with this exquisite tiered drinks trolley (£295.95). Aperol Spritzes all round, then.


Who’d have thought it – a clock made of concrete (£79.95). Apparently though it’s not so heavy it’ll fall off your wall. A little bit different and a lot cool.

This sleek mid-century Scandi-style sofa (£645) was another big hit at our salon – one lady even asked to test it out as the SM boys were carrying it out to their van at the end!

Secret Messages Interiors is 8 Bridge Street, Buckingham, Bucks, MK181EL (tel. 01280 814409); the showroom is at 26 Balmer Cut, Buckingham Industrial Estate, Buckingham, Bucks, MK181UL. Tel: 01280 823198. You can also buy online
