The House Directory Q&A
Q. Where can I find a large and very simple white mirror to prop up against a bathroom wall?
A. Have a look at the wide range of mirrors from Papa Theo. Their hand-crafted wooden accessories are all made with materials from renewable sources. Telephone: 01892 871267, or visit www.papatheo.co.uk. Try also Scumble Goosie who specialises in hand-finished furniture that can be purchased either ready to paint or hand painted. Working mainly in sustainable hardwoods, their range is influenced by traditional 18th Century Swedish and French styles but pared down to suit interiors and lifestyles of today. Their website (www.scumblegoosie.com). has an ex-display and ex-photoshoot clearance corner, with some great bargains. Telephone: 01453 731305.
Q. We’re looking for a supplier of topiary in interesting shapes. Who can we try?
A. Oxford Planters supplies traditional and contemporary topiary specimens in box, yew and bay laurel. Their website, www.www.oxfordplanters.co.uk, features illustrations of the shapes available, along with an interesting history of topiary and maintenance tips. They also (as their name suggests) have a wide range of handmade wooden and lead planters. Telephone: 01608 683100.
