home: trend [ pouffe ]
It seems the home accessory of the season is the pouffe. Firmly back as a key piece of furniture in a lounge (or any other room) and with floral flouncy ones a distant memory of the 80s; the pouffe is now the perfect accessory to add a splash of colour or pop of pattern into a room.
There’s a plethora to choose from across the high street, designer and online stores and whatever trend you use as your styling guide, there’s a pouffe to suit the look.
We’ve picked a selection of our favourites to suit current trends including – colour pop, embellished, midcentury monochrome, maximalist, traveller and artisan.

home: made [ triangle ]
We like to find great little projects to share with you, and although this one looks a bit more higher skill level than our usual finds, they do insist it’s not hard – and what a super result you’d get.
This great wooden triangle shelf would make a fab feature on any room. The wood could be kept natural or painted up to match the room colours and even changed at a later date if the decor changes.
Adorn with herb pots in a kitchen, collated small curiosities in the lounge or cute little dolls and figures in a nursery. So versatile and a great little project to try out.
Head to MrKate for the tutorial.
