home: trend [ indigo ]
All the richness, all the luxury, wrapped up in one colour – indigo. This dark shade is currently best on mass to make a super rich feel to an interior. Embrace wall colour, rugs and soft furnishings to create the strongest look with small metallic, blush or other rich jewel tone highlights.
For a lighter look match indigo with clean white, to lift and brighten a room. Use rich blue tones on walls and furniture, but use white for floors, ceilings and in patterns on the soft furnishings.

home: featured [ rattan at Habitat ]
Rattan, popular on and off throughout the last century, especially from the 1950s to 1980s in various styles and forms, is back in fashion and across the high street.
Habitat, known for its midcentury styling and strong designs from the key rattan era, is definitely the go to place for rattan and other materials that have a similar look – wicker, cane, bamboo, and other woods. Beds, shelving, chairs and more all embracing the current new trend.
So why is rattan different to other materials that look so similar? Rattan is a specific material, hence rattan furniture is crafted out of rattan only, but wicker furniture may be crafted out of different materials such as bamboo, straw and even rattan. Recently, synthetic materials are also being used for manufacturing wicker furniture.
It sits perfectly within either a clean minimal interior or equally amongst an eclectic bohemian styled room. It worked in the 1970s and still works now. Avoid mixing with chintzy florals – not to end up looking to 1980s.
