It gets quite dark and opulent-gothic this autumn with bringing dark berry into home interiors. Layering up tones of this shade – think burgundy, port, rose, grape and other deep rich berry-like shades create a warm, inviting interior to see you into colder months. 

Keep the look modern with matt tones and matt fabrics, use along side dark woods and allow textures of wool, leather and velvet to work together. 

Think to use shades all the way from floor to walls to window covering to give strength to the look and pop in other jewel tones if want the odd highlight to break up the colour.

This simple diy project combines the popularity of indoor hanging plants and the new trend for Japanese inspired homes.
Kokedama meaning ‘moss ball’ is a Japanese form of hanging plants by creating balls of soil covered in moss. These unique hanging plants look amazing in groups if you have the space.

They are very easy to create, all you will need is your choice of plant, soil, sheet moss and string, and you are good to go.

We have a couple of tutorials for you to follow.

Since there’s the odd day with a chill in the air and autumn is on its way, we are looking for warmth and thinking ahead to cosy nights in. Plus to make the most of the last summer nights, keep throws handy with outdoor furniture to ensure you can stay outside for longer. 

Ikea has these perfect VARKRAGE throws at just £4 each. They are machine washable and available in grey or blue.

home: favourite thing [ Ikea x Hay ]

We have been waiting a long time for this collaboration. And if you don’t know about it, here is the lowdown.

Launching in October Swedish giant Ikea has joined forces with Danish brand Hay to create the new Ypperlig collection. Featuring furniture, vases, throws and accessories the Ypperlig collection has been designed to ‘challenge people’s perception of Ikea quality and design’

New redesign of Ikea Frakta bag

Hay has also taken on the challenge of redesigning the iconic blue & yellow Frakta bag. The size & shape has remained, with new colours including the green & white version pictured. Hay wanted to turn the bag into a ‘design object’ that customers appreciate.

We love the simplicity and muted colours of the collection, with strong design that will fit into any room. As Ikea says ‘a contemporary yet ageless collection’
