Birdie Fortescue’s Guest Buyer’s Picks

“This weekend we open the doors on our new location in Burnham Market, most recently the home of well known interior designer and specialist antiques dealer Birdie Fortescue. Earlier this week Birdie and I met up at her showroom in Fakenham and over coffee we talked about our mutual love of all things furniture and fashion. It is with great pleasure that we share our Guest Buyer’s Picks this week – Birdie has chosen some favourites from our collection and I have had great fun choosing some superb pieces from her website.

“Happy shopping at both and, do join us in Burnham Market this Saturday for launch drinks and celebrations if you can.”

Vanessa Collen

Luvina Bag in Multi
Nova Retro Plimsole in White/Pekin Red
Veneta Midi Dress in Raspberry
Birdie says: “This is a perfect staple basket for summer. It goes with everything and is a great size.”
Birdie says: “I love Veja sneakers and this retro pair are so stylish with the splash of red. A great option for everyday wear whether out and about shopping or catching up with friends.”
Birdie says: “This dress is such a great shape and would be perfect for everyday wear in the summer. The loose fit is cool and comfy and I love the pleated detail.”
Denim Jacket in Soft Blue
Fleur Cashmere Hoody in Natural Marl
Resin Hoop Earrings in White
Birdie says: “No wardrobe is complete without a staple denim jacket! They are perfect for throwing on with anything as an extra light layer. I love that this one is waisted for a more flattering fit.”
Birdie says: “This cashmere hoody looks so soft and cosy but is light enough as an extra layer in the summer. The relaxed shape makes it easy to wear and perfect for everyday.”
Birdie says: “These are great summer accessories and are a great alternative to silver or gold.”
“We are thrilled that our friends Collen & Clare are moving into our lovely former shop building in Burnham Market this weekend. The Warehouse is a wonderful space and we can’t wait to see how it looks filled with Collen & Clare’s fabulous clothing and accessories. To celebrate their upcoming launch we have put our heads together and created two guest edits with Birdie’s favourites from Collen & Clare’s current collection and Vanessa’s picks from ours.””Vanessa has opted for a coastal chic edit with lots of breezy blues, neutrals and natural materials. We love the combination of our Ltd Edition bamboo sofa with Aakaar panel cushions and a cotton throw.”Birdie Fortescue
Vanessa says: “Designed exclusively by Birdie, this rug could well have been a Collen & Clare commission, it has just perfect colours for so many rooms.”
Vanessa says: “This Alex Jorgensen painting just seems to sum up the combination of big skies, sea and landscapes that we get in East Anglia, I would love to hang this in my house.”
Vanessa says: “I would like two of these please, for bedside tables, coffee tables or paired on a larger piece of furniture, the glass feels luminous.”
Vanessa says: “Right now I would like to have this piece outside for the summer but pull it in for the winter, dressed with several Aakaar cushions, perfect for laidback lounging.”
Vanessa says: “I have chosen this place mat in blue but it also comes in a host of other wonderful colours, a dusty pink being a particular favourite, let the table dressing games begin.”
Vanessa says: “This coffee table from Francois Monnet is my absolute personal favourite, I need it in my house and know it would always feel cool and sophisticated.”
