Designer Annie Little specialises in screen printed homewares and stationery. Her beautiful designs feature vintage looking lace in bright neons and bold pastels. I spotted her notebooks in Waterstones recently and wanted to know more about Annie's products which also include cushions, tote bags, cards and wall art prints. Annie has always had a passion for pattern, colour, texture and all things vintage and aims to create exquisite design-led products. She exhibited at Pulse last summer and now counts Selfridges amongst her stockists. Find out more online here at Annie Little.

Hannah Nunn took the Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design course last year to help her turn her paper cut lamp motifs into patterns with the long term view of getting a collection of wallpaper printed. That project has now become a reality and Hannah says it has been a fantastic journey, which she has documented on her blog - from designing it, to watching it come off the printing presses at the factory. There are three designs, 'Paper Meadow' and Beech leaves' which come in three colourways, and a giant mural print called 'In The Tall Grass' which is in one colour. All available from here.

Mini Labo have a fabulous new range of products since we last looked in with some being new arrivals for Spring Summer 2014. There are beautiful trays, tableware, cushions, zip up cases, and phone cases. I first became aware of Mini Labo through the Designers Guild shop in London and they have appeared in the Print & Pattern Books. The company was founded in 2004 by Caroline Diaz, Céline Héno and Sophie Adary in Paris and these beautiful new products have been produced in collaboration with Atomic Soda.
