Interior designer Siwan Hall opened her first shop in the high street of the Hertfordshire village of Buntingford 18 months ago in a pretty Georgian house. The shop, a base for her interior design business, sells fabrics, wallpapers, furniture and lighting, and has proved so successful that she has already opened another premises just across the street, specialising in home accessories, gifts, clothes and jewellery.

The shop at 68-70 is a sophisticated mix of contemporary and more traditional furniture: verre eglomise coffee tables (£1,081) and a silver-leaf-finish chest of drawers by Julian Chichester (£1,410) sit beside antiques such as a Georgian-style bench reupholstered in raspberry velvet, while one of Siwan’s own modern x-frame stools is covered with forest green leather (from £1,050).

There is a good range of lighting – from beaded pendants with crystal drops (£89) to modern glass table lamps which are competitively priced from £95, the accessories shop is a fashionable girlie mix of clothing, jewellery and giftware. Fantastic shell, silver and coral jewellery from £5, beaded Moroccan slippers, leather jewellery wraps and funky belts, all from £14, and a simple hanging rail of covetable clothes – sequined gypsy skirts (£40), cashmere wraps (£110) and sequined kaftans, £40, which sells as quickly as they hit the rails.
