What To Buy For Your Home From 2019’s Most Fashionable Holiday Destinations


We've all been there - you're having such a great summer holiday that you want a souvenir to bring home with you. You've long since learnt that the kaftans and overpriced linen tunics that seem a good idea at the time never work as well when back in the UK, so investing in something for our home seems more sensible. But where do you start? Which countries specialise in which interior must-haves? Where should you buy ceramics, and where is best for cushions or rattan mats? We spoke to homewares maestro, Lisa Mehydene, the founder of online interiors destination edit58, to find out what you should take home from 2019's most fashionable holiday destinations.

Paris: candles


|Shopping in Paris for me means heading to Les Puces de Saint-Ouen, the best flea/antique market around. Hundreds of stalls, along with warehouses filled to the brim, make this the best place to find an interior gem or two. No trip to Paris is complete without stocking up on scented candles. Cire Trudon is my favourite French brand and their Left Bank scent house is their original branch. The interior is divine, and that’s before we get into the scents. Heaven.”
