Hello

Welcome to Frecklepocket, a blog about design, travel and lifestyle.

My name is Stephanie and I am into bold colour, ikat, typography, monochrome, texture and books.

I love clever, functional design, the WEIRDER, the BETTER.  Perfection is boring (unless of course it's perfectly smooth unvarnished bone china - that's beautiful).   Interiors, fashion, app design - as long as it's inspirational, I'm interested.

I live in Greenwich with my boyfriend James (with whom I co-founded Get-Well Gamers UK, a charity that donates used consoles and video games to hospitals for children).  We both enjoy exploring London and travelling, and I love making mini travel-guides, so look out for those coming up (I make a mean itinerary). One day, when we can afford to move to a bigger flat with a garden, we want to get a miniature daschund.

The best thing about living in London is being surrounded by loads of bright young talented people.   I look forward to introducing everyone to my most talented friends from here, Scotland and beyond, and selling some of their wares in our wee shop.

Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.
