Newquay-Boardmasters Weekend

I headed to Newquay, Cornwall and had a look at what trends are happening at the Boardmasters surf & music festival weekend. I took some pictures of street markets were selling, street fashion trends but also looking at the interior shop, with cool surf trends and also a mix of run down antique shops to see what gems they may have in store.

I do love an antique print, whether it’s an old chipped plate or a ripped shaggy rug, all these things inspire me and start a trigger point, whether it’s a colour palette or starting point to a design.

There’s a real mix in this report, from old to new, National Trust & organic baby brands but hopefully, you get something out of it too!!

Beach/Street Report

Print & Graphic's

Vintage Hawaiian prints were everywhere. Everyone literally, were all over the retro surf market on Fistral beach for the Boardmasters weekend. People wanted old vintage prints, no matter how bad some of the designs were.  80’s bomber jackets, oversize unisex shirts, statement print retro short, 70’s retro stripe ribbed jersey and old original short ripped levis denim shorts were key too.


Lucky Go Happy

Organic Kidswear & sustainable interior products

I came across this gorgeous organic kidswear shop. Some fantastic baby/toddler brands. The shore layout was very cute with lots of amazing product you could kit your child’s bedroom. https://www.luckygohappy.co.uk/


Trelissick House

National Trust, Cornwall

Set atop sweeping countryside, Trelissick house is a striking sight with its neoclassical columns. Erected by Thomas Daniell in 1824, this facade represented wealth and status. With a more reserved interior, its true character as a relaxed space to enjoy the spectacular maritime views becomes apparent. A must see if you’re in the area, it’s about a 35-minute drive,
