Bringing beauty to your home

At Little Gems Interiors we love finding the perfect products to help customers bring beauty into their homes. Whether you are looking to add that extra special touch to your interior décor, find a perfect gift for a loved one or learn a new crafting skill, our friendly team would be happy to help. 

Based at Assington Barns near the Essex/Suffolk border, we are perfectly placed for shoppers from Colchester, Sudbury and beyond. 

As an independently owned small business ourselves, we love searching out small UK brands who provide beautiful, unique products you might not otherwise discover. From decorative accessories and soft furnishings to stylish clothes and jewellery, you are sure to find something you love. 

We are proud to be an Annie Sloan stockist, offering a full range of Chalk Paint™ and other products and accessories to help you complete your upcycling projects.  We also are a Redesign with Prima UK stockist too. 

Our team has been trained by Annie herself to help customers get the very best from their Chalk Paint™. Workshops based on Annie’s techniques are regularly on offer, as well as creative craft courses using ranges such as Redesign with Prima which we also stock. 

We are part of a collection of small independent units at Assington Barns, giving you the chance to make an outing out of your visit. Assington Country Kitchen is just next-door, where you can relax over a cup of tea or coffee and some delicious homemade cakes either by the wood burner in winter or in the beautiful gardens during the warmer months.   

Our neighbours also include a farm shop selling local produce and seasonal items, Jules Florist offering a selection of quality cut flowers and bouquets and the Hair Emporium where you can transform yourself with hair and nail creations! Even your four-legged friends haven’t been forgotten as there is a groomer, The Dog and Comb, onsite too.  For more information visit
