Ola! Velkommen, bienvenido!
Welcome to the Mora Approved blog. This is our official fancy schmancy blog, but we also have a Tumblr, a Facebook, a Pinterest and a Twitter account. Hooray for social media!
For the curious, we unofficially started Mora Approved in September 2011 in a West London pub after a few rosés. The idea came when we hypothesised that there is not one home in the UK (or really anywhere else in the Western world for that matter) without at least one piece of Ikea furniture.
Think about it.
Ikea is the destination for affordable furniture for your home.
So with all the Swedish-born homogeneity in our homes, Claudia and I realised that the best way to add some character without spending a fortune is through home accessories - cushions, posters, wall clocks, ceramics - beautiful and functional pieces with a distinctly European twist. Pieces that give your home character without giving your bank balance a heart attack.
So when your Kivik Sofa has had it, at least you know you can always update it with a lovely cushion or two. Or if you think your walls are a bit blah - then you could always add a bright print to give it some pep.
They do say change is as good as a (European) holiday.
And the best part about our selection is that for the most part, our pieces are handmade, and in limited quantities. They're the kinds of pieces that have your visitors exclaiming 'where on earth did you get that!?'
In which case you breezily respond, 'Oh I think I got it on a recent trip to Italy...'. They'll be none the wiser.
So stay for a moment. Browse around. Tell us what you think - we'd love to hear from you!
And if you'd like to receive our email detailing news and offers, then please sign up. And for the record, we also hate spam (both the canned 'meat' and the inbox variety) so sign up with confidence that we'll only email you if we have something truly exciting to share!
Yours in European goodness.
Cass and Claud xx
