Wish List: Quirky porcelain pottery

There’s a certain snug, indoorsy feel to this week’s pick from Esther N McCarthy.

I’m loving this quirky porcelain pottery from the Avoca Nest range. The signature button design is very cute. The teapot is €34.95; see www.avoca.com  for more prices.

Ikea’s Stockholm mirror has a nifty frame around the bottom that forms a shelf for your make-up, razor, or whatever you’re having yourself. Made from walnut, so it should be quite hardwearing. The designer, Ola Wihlborg, says she created it to fit in other rooms, as well as in the bathroom. €70, www.ikea.ie
