We fell in love with Daniela Cadore's paired back aesthetic on instagram. This London based Creative Consultant has a passion for handmade products and a great eye for mixing a minimalist aesthetic with artisanal flair. We asked Daniela to select her favourite pieces from our store and style them within her home for our latest inspirational edit.
MINAMALIST CHIC x ARTISANAL FLAIR
I’m a big admirer of artisans. There is something truly magical about creating something using your own hands. Something unique and enduring. When shopping, I’m always enamoured by the pieces carrying a story. The pieces I’ll wear, use, and treasure for years to come.
I first came across Artisans & Adventurers while searching for a basket a few weeks ago. I was looking for an interesting yet small container to help me organise my daughter’s drawers. She is a one year old and has more socks than I ever had in my entire life. I fell in love with the Kenyan woven baskets. Just what I needed! Although, I probably spent at least half an hour browsing until I chose mine. I was in doubt between a vibrant piece to add a hint of colour to the bedroom or a neutral one. I decided to go for the neutral look, and now looking at the basket in context, I’m very happy with my decision.
I have always loved jewellery, since I was a child. Still today I can recall my ecstasy when borrowing my mum's necklaces to go to the nursery. Over the years, my style has changed many times, but jewellery has always had a strong presence in my identity. In the past, I enjoyed bold pieces, but nowadays I feel good with simple shapes and fewer lines. Geometric shapes will always be my passion, so Artisans & Adventurers Hexagon Bangle was love at first sight.
For some things in life, being functional is not enough. Beauty is required. Salad servers are one of these things, and I’m in love with my new ones in wood and batik.

Make the Nice List this Christmas by Choosing Sustainable Gift Wrapping
The festive season is meant for spending time with loved ones, which can include the exchanging of gifts. Amidst the excitement, we often neglect to consider what happens to all that gift wrap and packaging after we’re through with it. According to the GWP Group, a UK packaging company, consumers in the UK use approximately 227,000 miles of wrapping paper each year, with over 83km2 heading directly to the bin. Many local authorities don’t accept wrapping paper for recycling due to the additives included, such as dye, lamination, and glitter. This abundance of gift wrapping can’t be fixed in place without loads of non recyclable sticky tape - 40 million rolls to be exact. Luckily, having a sustainable Christmas morning is easier to achieve than you might think.
