Stuff we Love

Currently Reading 

We tend to read-up a little on places that we'd like to visit. At the moment everything to us is pointing east. The Monocle guides are great to get a sense of a place in terms of architecture, attractions and also have useful information about the cultures of a certain place. 

The Monocle Travel Guide Series: Seoul.

Stationery

Essential tools for note-taking, list-writing and trip-planning. We always have at least one of these guys in our bag.

Staple T-Shirts

When we find something we like we tend to really go for it; we both have a thing for basic t-shirts from Arket and have a collection of different colours (all variations of grey!)

Scented Candles

The Haarkon House wouldn't be the same without them and we have so many. We tend to lean towards more 'earthy' scents and Le Labo is really good at making long-lasting (and beautiful) products.

Photo Gear

So many people ask us about our gear and these are our workhorses: the Canon 5d MkIII and a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L Series lens. Heavy to carry around all day but worth it.

Talented Friends

So many of our friends have incredible skillsets and we like to support them as best we can - it helps of course when they design or make really beautiful things. This coin pouch has developed a patina over the years; it's designed and made in England by our friends and we proudly use it every day.

Video Camera

The camera we use to record our YouTube videos. There's something about video that excites us; we hope to look back on our videos in years to come and relive moments that we wouldn't have been able to quite capture with still images.

Ceramics

Where to start with ceramics?! The Haarkon House is home to a healthy (and ever-growing) ceramic collection in the form of crockery, plant pots, decorative vessels and many, many mugs. Hasami Porcelain is from Nagasaki in Japan and combines our love for natural textures and innovative design.

Quality Luggage

As we've been on quite a number of aeroplanes in the past few years we've come to learn what makes our journeys easier and great luggage certainly helps. Horizn's suitcases are well-built, great to look at and fantastic value for money.
