Connecting well to the current Eastern interiors trend (featured on Friday), we love this exhibition at the V&A – Lustrous Surfaces.

Featuring 110 objects located throughout the Museum, including shrines, chests and rare Latin American examples, this display highlights the varied manufacturing techniques, surface treatments, decorative styles and application around the world.

This free exhibition runs til September.

home: trend [ eastern ]

Inspired by interiors of the orient, this eastern trend is chic and now with a modernised edge.

Layer up intricate patterns of flowers, birds and illustrations on cushions and other soft furnishings. Keep the colour palette rich but muted tones.

Although busy with pattern and design ensure some larger areas – a wall or two, the rug or the sofa colour is paler and less fussy. Add accessories in lacquered black to add a contrast and richness to the scheme, with flashes of gold and iridescent pearl tones in lighting, ceramics and picture framing.

We spotted this sleek and simple diy project for a hanging organiser. With the use of some wooden dowels, rope and a drill, you are good to go.

Adapt your hanging ladder to suit your needs and what you intend to use it for. We think it’s great for hanging photos, and art! A lovely idea for adults and kids.

There are so many great new arrivals appearing online and one of our favourite brands is made.com. We have featured them a lot recently and this is basically because of their great design and prices.

Our latest crush is on the Edwin sofa bed, with its classic vintage design and simple fold-down backrest. Available in three colours this sofa is certainly a winner for those who want a cool daytime sofa, but need a bed for occasional guests staying over.
