PURVEYORS OF MAGIC & WONDER

Bear & Bloom is a playground for the imagination – a world completely devoted to all things whimsical and wondrous, and founded on the belief that attention to detail is everything.

Here we dance with colour and delight in creativity. We fuse nostalgic influences with modern techniques and always work from a place of originality. This means that every Bear & Bloom piece is as unique as it is timeless, and that is something we are very proud of.

What are you waiting for? Come inside and start daydreaming…

ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS EVERYTHING

From the countless hours spent on the hand-painted print collections, to the origami thank you notes in our eco-friendly packaging, the Bear & Bloom aim has always been to create a truly magical experience, sparking imaginations in those who dare to dream.

Through our lovingly created collection of hand-illustrated prints, our inspiring wall art and décor is here to help you rejoice, cheerlead and champion, whatever the occasion.

Inspired by the beauty of nature and with an enduring appreciation of childhood, Bear & Bloom designs are intended for daydream believers of all ages – from birth and beyond.

Autumn Spice Cheesecake Recipe

Warming autumnal spices meet creamy cheesecake... what's not to love?

My colleague and I were discussing how yummy it was but how disappointing that it was so seasonal and ingredients would be hard to come by at other times of the year.
