home: trend [ jewel tones ] 

For those who want the antithesis of monochrome interiors and prefer a richer more opulent look then using jewel tones for interiors can give a warm, rich, homely and welcoming feel to a home. 

A variety of jewel tones, including turquoise, teal, jade, ruby and burgundy can compliment each other and work well in a room together – but also varying shades of the same colour can be very effective and impactful. 

Currently other on-trend colours including navy and copper sit very well with this colour palette and act well to set off the rich tones. 

We love going bold with this trend and including floors, woodwork, furniture as well as soft furnishings all in the colour palette. Using high street brand Habitat paint is perfect as it works on both walls and wood to ensure matching colours throughout. And for fabrics opt for velvet, cord and satin to compliment the trend.

A massive trend at the moment is animal candle holders, everything from zoo animals to woodland creatures. We have looked at how you can create something just as fun but for a lot less money. 

There are two popular ways to create this look, and it basically comes down to size. You can either opt for a party candle [ great for kids birthdays ] or a larger table centre piece for a dinner party perhaps. Either way involves the same preparation and materials; the chosen animal [ for plastic zoo & farm assortments try amazon ], a drill and some paint [ They look great painted black, white or gold btw ]. 

Below are a couple of tutorials to follow.

When something ticks so many boxes – practical, industrial, copper, vintage-style, and it’s half price …then it’s a must-buy, right? 

We loved this 3 tier basket unit from Urban Outfitters before, but now it’s down to £40 from £80 it has to be snapped up. 

Use for magazines, stationery, toys, toiletries fruit and veg or even vinyl. This great storage piece is versatile and will look great in any room. 

Only £40

On trend, on your high street and on your budget: these are the three things that are great to hear when shopping for all things interiors. 

Unexpectedly we stumble upon browsing Argos and find numerous lovable homewares and furniture that tick many boxes including amazing prices.

When we just focused on grey – our beloved colour of the year – we found many delights for the home (see picture) from lamps at only £24.99 to huge rugs at under £125! Argos have great brands under their belt, including Habitat, but their own designs are up there at the top with being cool and on trend.  

Our top picks after lighting and rugs include throws, dining sets and cushions

Historically, and in present day, Danish design is at the forefront in aesthetics, materials and style. 

We love how designs from the last century are as popular now as ever; and reproductions, official copies, modernised versions and inevitably scandalous rip-offs are everywhere, offering a range of prices to the consumer  who loves a particular style. 

Firm favourite Cult Furniture have a virtual and actual store bursting at the seams with modern models of incredible furniture from the last century. 

Our favourite find is the Hans J Wegner CH25 chair, with its curves and contours, it’s a beautiful edition to an interior. 

”Danish design is undoubtedly timeless and adds a touch of sophistication and charm to any space. The Hans J Wegner CH25 chair is no exception! 

Designed in 1950 by ‘the king of chairs’ Hans Wegner, reproduced by Cult Furniture for modern homes today. The CH25 chair is crafted from high-quality materials and will look great in any space. Think of a laid-back lounge, living room or timeless hotel. 

The Hans J Wegner CH25 chair features a curved wooden frame available in a variety of colours. The woven seat is available in natural or black cord.”
