home: trend [ clay ]
Often fashion trends will give inspiration to other products, particularly homeware. This season heading into 2017 sees the rich tone of potters clay, alongside other similar shades like cinnamon and chilli powder with accents of copper to compliment, creating a warm calming space.
Use these earthy colours on a painted feature wall and accessorize with lighter soft furnishings in cream or white. Alternatively keep the walls light and opt for a tanned leather sofa and some key wooden furniture. Bring print into a room with cushions and rugs, with this colour lending itself well to a Maroccon or Aztec inspired room, you can have fun with pattern and fabrics.
Additional colours to consider to sit alongside clay are dark teal and cream.

home: made [ plant pots and plant stands ]
January is all about new projects and hiding from the cold, and making crafty projects.
Introduce some indoor (or outdoor) gardening to your home but instead of just buying planters and pots – look to use, upcycle, recycle and make your own alternative containers and stands for your planting.
There’s great tutorials from favourites A Beautiful Mess and Brit & Co but there’s lots of easy projects without tutorials.
Search for unusual containers – cups, buckets, tins, old crates, bags or even tea pots. Depending on what you choose to plant your chosen container may need to have drainage holes. Then you can think about creativity with paints, sprays, varnishes or if the item has vintage charm it might look great as it is.
Look at trends in colour and pattern for inspiration and use masking to create designs on the outside – try geometric , stripes or colour blocking. Techniques including drip, dip and ombré may be a little more challenging but have great results too.

home: trend [ desert sands ]
Taking the world, literally, by a (sand) storm is the new desert trend with its pattern and texture combinations, homely feel and power to be added to with collected items and finds from travels.
This look combines white walls and then brings pattern in through the soft furnishings. The easiest way to start is with a good Kilim, south western or geometric rug and work upwards with the colour palette from there, with tapestries, wall hangings, cushions, hints of metallic and details in the home accessories and wall art of the desert including cactus, lanterns and rope.
Head to vintage markets and eBay for pieces but high street favourites including Urban Outfitters and La Redoute are amazing for this trend.
Pick real woods for furniture – teak, mango and walnut, and layer up the trend to create an eclectic look, but the fresh white walls will keep it clean and less cluttered.
